Black D.O.G. Strain. Black D.O.G. is a combination of Emerald Headband and the flavorful Blackberry Kush. It offers a complex flavor profile alongside a thorough body stone. Definitely, a strain that’s best reserved for laidback evening use, Black D.O.G. has THC levels measured at between 16% and 21%.Black D.O.G.’s flowers are medium to large in size and cling together in elongated, almost cylindrical shapes. Like many other indica-dominant strains, Black D.O.G. can be a creeper that requires several minutes before its effects become apparent.
As such, impatient consumers are advised to wait for 15 minutes or so before increase their dosage. Eventually, the high arrives with a concerted feeling of pressure around the temples and lower forehead (the so-called “headband” effect for which parent strain Emerald Headband is named).As this high wears on, Black D.O.G.’s physical effects, at first only subtle, may progress into a heavy body stone. Limbs and eyelids may be weighed down in equal measure and any extended physical activity might require more effort than usual.
Although Black D.O.G.’s initial mental high may persist, smokers may be stripped of some of their earlier energy and motivation. Black D.O.G.’s relaxing and embodied effects can have several benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. Its cerebral onset can bring some measure of focus to those with attention deficit disorders. Additionally, its constant euphoria can alleviate the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety.
Physically speaking, Black D.O.G. may be a balm for all kinds of aches and pains, both temporary and chronic. The strain’s headband-like feeling of pressure may be a particularly good way to relieve the intraocular pain associated with eye conditions like glaucoma. In properly relaxed conditions, Black D.O.G. may even counteract insomnia, lulling smokers into a heavy sleep. Because it comes with an elevated risk of paranoia and disorientation, Black D.O.G. should be consumed with some caution and moderation by patients who have a low THC tolerance.
