Black Out

A cross between The Black and Face Off OG, Black Out is recognizable for its strong sage aroma. Other exotic scents from this strain (cultivar) include incense, blackberry, and spices like pepper. Many users prefer Black Out at bedtime, as the strain has a reputation for inducing sleep. It’s comprised of 80% indica and 20% sativa.

An indica-dominant hybrid, Black Out offers some users a feeling of euphoria, along with a more reliable effect of sleepiness. The hazy head effects of Black Out make the strain inappropriate for daytime use or anytime you need to be alert and functioning at top speed.

Black Out is also known to help people with muscle aches, anxiety, and depression.
