Northwest Blackberry strain, also known as Blackberry Kush is an indica dominant hybrid strain. This strain is perhaps mostly suited for medicinal use by patients due to the strong strains used to create this cross bred hybrid. These include the Afghani strain and the simple blackberry strain. The medical uses for this strain include the use as a painkiller for people suffering from chronic pains such as arthritis or other syndromes as well as for people suffering from insomnia and depression. The high is strong at first followed by a mellow, soothing sensation. Thanks to the strong indica effects, this strain is quite popular amongst the people suffering from the above mentioned ailments. The indica, sativa ratio of this strain is 80:20 which is very high. In terms of aroma and taste, this strain is very earthy with strong undertones of jet-fuel smell. The aftertaste however has noticeable undertones of fruity flavors that are closer to berries. This makes this sort of like a sweet and sour variety strain that give your taste buds a plethora of sensations (not to mention a cerebral high). The appearance is fitting the name. The buds have a dark purple color with a few orange hairs.
