Black Mamba is named after the deadly African American snake (or possibly the vengeful bride from the movie Kill Bill), so it’s no surprise that this breed is known for being powerful (it might just knock less experienced users into nap time). The genetics of the breed are unknown, but its characteristics appear to support the theory that it is a descendent of Granddaddy Purple and maybeBlack Domina. These plants produce dark green to purple leaves, but it’s the flowers that appear after about 8 weeks that give a hint to its heritage. Dark compact and green, these nugs have a grape taste that’s reminiscent of GDP and a strong perfumey aroma. Many users report an upbeat feeling that mellows into a state of profound relaxation. Touted for its effects, this Black Mamba is one to flake out, not run away from.
