Blackberry by Seattle-based Nirvana Seeds was created in 2009 as a combination of a clone of Black Domina with the Raspberry Cough strain (cultivar). This 50:50 indica-to-sativa hybrid features moderate levels of THC, testing up to 21%, with around 3% CBD content.

The hybrid plant produces compact, densely-packed flowers with tight leaves and a coat of resinous trichomes. Blackberry exudes a scent more diesel-like than berry, though it contains hints of its namesake fruit. Its smoke produces a more blackberry-forward flavor with notes of diesel and loamy soil.

Users report Blackberry is best known for its potent, euphoric effects that are mellow enough to avoid couch lock. It mixes a sativa buzz of mental stimulation and uplifted mood with the tingly, pain-numbing abilities typical of indica-leaning strains.

Blackberry contains a blend of terpenes that predominantly feature myrcene, limonene, linalool, and delta-3 carene. Myrcene is the most abundant terpene in cannabis and works with THC to relax the body and alleviate the sensory experience of pain.

Studies suggest that carene is a beneficial anti-inflammatory and helps combat some fungal infections. Limonene produces more uplifting effects, is shown to lift moods, and generally improves energy levels. Linalool, the terpene that gives lavender its scent, also features gently relaxing effects that mellow without sedating.

growing strains

Blackberry plants are a good option for beginner growers because they can thrive outdoors in nature or a well-controlled indoor grow house. Blackberry is a particularly intense strain, so it may be better kept indoors to avoid alerting nosy neighbors.

However, its pungent smell can be overwhelming without appropriate ventilation, so indoor cultivators should invest in proper smell masking and air circulation before planting. At maturity, Blackberry produces lovely purple-green buds, densely packed and coated with sparkling white trichomes.


While exact heights are unknown, the strain likely develops into medium-sized plants approximately 4-6 feet tall with moderate lateral branching.

Humidity and Temperature

Blackberry plants prefer warm and temperate climates with dry air to help them avoid molds or fungal infestations.


Blackberry reaches maturity in eight to nine weeks indoors and mid-to-late October outdoors.
