As I’ve mentioned here before, chasing specific flavors and terpenes has become sort of a pastime of mine. As a former sommelier, I am fascinated by the idea that the same organic compound can create the same flavor in fruit, wine, and cannabis. That brought me to my newest pickup from Consume Marion, Revolution’s Blackberry Kush
Blackberry Kush is a slightly indica dominant hybrid cross of Afghani and Huckleberry. This batch tested at 22.36% THCA and 23.27% total cannabinoids. The primary terpenes were limonene, alpha-pinene, linalool, beta-pinene, and beta-caryophyllene.
This eighth came as three large pointed colas. The buds were dense with a very light trichome frost and tiny orange hairs covering about a quarter of the space. The trim was commendable leaving very little sugar leaf but the cure left these flowers just over the line of too dry.
The aroma in the jar was light and led with fresh pine and black pepper. Some olfactory exploration revealed hints of berry and lavender. The flavor leans much more into the Afghani genetics than the Huckleberry. Black pepper, musky hash, and sweet earth give way to very subtle hints of tart berry and lavender on the finish.
The heavy kush flavor did not carry into the effects and Blackberry Kush felt more like a true hybrid rather than an indica leaning cross with a landrace parent. My mood was lifted, and I enjoyed a notable boost in creativity. As the effects built my appetite spiked considerably, a nod to the Afghani genetics.
Overall, Blackberry Kush isn’t very blackberry and it isn’t very kush but consumers looking for an easy smoking midday mood booster should be well served.
