Blackberry Kush

Blackberry Kush is a cultivar of unconfirmed origins and features approximately 80% indica characteristics, THC content testing as high as 20%, and negligible amounts of CBD.

Many breeders believe Blackberry Kush to be a combination of an Afghani landrace with either Blackberry or DJ Short Blueberry. However, some also believe Bubba Kush or OG Kush genetics play a role in the strain. The buds feature an aromatic blend of fresh berries and damp soil, with flavors that lean closer to an earthy, almost diesel-like palate with a sweet berry flavor.

Medical marijuana patients opt for Blackberry Kush for its powerfully sedating high, producing euphoric happiness and uplifting moods. Others claim the cultivar (often referred to as “strain”) helps stimulate appetite and serves as a valuable companion for combatting stubborn insomnia.

The dominant terpenes in Blackberry Kush are pinene, beta-caryophyllene, and myrcene.

Studies have shown pinene to have promising anti-inflammatory effects, making it helpful in minimizing pain experience and reducing an overactive immune response. Myrcene is one of the most abundant terpenes in cannabis and contributes to Blackberry Kush’s capable sedative properties. Beta-caryophyllene balances this relaxation with its capacity for producing uplifted moods while simultaneously working with pinene to fight inflammation.

growing strains

Blackberry Kush prefers indoor growing environments where even beginner-level growers can easily attend to its needs and produce high yields. The cultivar produces laterally branching bushes that, with regular trimming and allowing for standard air and light flow, create an aromatic crop of dense, compact green-and-purple buds. More advanced cultivators will also find success raising Blackberry Kush outdoors, though they must protect the plants from some fungi or spider mites.


Blackberry Kush plants stay short and squat, with lots of lateral branching. The exact average height of these plants is still being determined.

Humidity and Temperature

Blackberry Kush prefers warm temperatures and plenty of light, though outdoor gardens can be susceptible to too much humidity.


Blackberry Kush reaches maturity between 65 to 75 days inside and by mid-October outdoors.
