A potent and powerful bud, Black Velvet is an evenly balanced hybrid strain that was borne out of the crossing of The Black and Burmese Kush strains. It comes with a satisfyingly robust 15-20% average THC level, making for a high that is equally effective on the mind and the body.
The flower gets its density and purple-black hue from its Black indica parent. Nugs are quite sticky, making it difficult to roll a joint, yet are beautiful with a purple-black tint to them. As far as the aroma and taste are concerned, Black Velvet is high up on the charts. Notes of berry, flowers, and citrus blend together for a sweet treat that feels as enjoyable as it is to smoke.
The high from Black Velvet is equal parts physical and mental, with a pleasant, lazy body buzz and sleepiness countered by cerebral effects that include euphoria and a peppy mood boost. Boosting your mood and creativity, users may find that they’re able to sit and focus on one task for a certain length of time. Having said that, once you’ve melted away into a total state of relaxation, these initial plans of productivity will simply fade away into the ether.
As a result of these effects, Black Velvet is much favoured in treating low mood, anxiety, nausea, chronic pain, and stress. It’s also a good choice for alleviating eating disorders, as it induces a powerful case of the munchies. Its sedative effects also offer a helping hand to those suffering from insomnia.
Black Velvet plants tend to produce a very low yield and growers will have to wait 9-10 weeks before it flowers.
Black Velvet is not for first time users and is best for day and evening time use.
