Black Roses

Developed from delicious seeds by Red Dirt Ridge Genetics, Black Roses is a rare indica-dominant hybrid strain (cultivar) made of 70% indica genetics and 30% sativa. The Black Roses strain is a potent cross of the infamous Grand Reserve Headband and Early Girl, which offers a relaxing body buzz. Medical users enjoy the strain for its positive effects on chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia. High-THC levels provide long-lasting effects for medical and recreational users alike.

Black Roses has an aroma profile that includes fresh flowers and rose buds. Citrus and diesel intermingle to create an unexpected flavor profile. The plant’s physical characteristics include buds with bright orange hairs, thick nuggets, and orangey trichomes resembling amber frost.

The Black Roses strain is sometimes confused with Black Sugar Rose, an entirely different hybrid from crossing Critical Mass and Black Domina.
