The Cali Connection and its head breeder, Swerve, have accomplished something great with their Blackwater OG strain. The group is dedicated to bringing some of the most popular Southern and Northern California “clone-only” cannabis varieties to seed form for legal, medical marijuana growers.
Some of these other strains include Tahoe OG, San Fernando Valley OG, Larry OG, Chem 91’ Skunk VA, and one we’ll review in-depth today–Blackwater OG.
In 2014, Swerve set out to breed one of the “darkest Purple OG Kushes,” and he’s marvelously achieved that feat with this purple indica strain.
Named after a popular Doobie Brother’s song, it’s a cross between the clone-only Mendo Purps and the Cali Connection’s flagship strain, San Fernando Valley OG. It’s won multiple awards including 3rd place in the 2014 Los Angles Cannabis Cup.
These round crystal-coated buds take on the best traits from both parent strains and help medical cannabis patients with a wide-variety of physical and mental ailments.
Most cannabis users find that Blackwater OG is one of the few “night-time only” strains due to its narcotic, sleep-inducing buzz. It’s perfect for medicinal cannabis patients who need a strain that will promptly provide sleep-aide, appetite stimulation, and pain-relief.
After smoking a small dose of this strain (0.08-0.25 grams), patients can expect a slight cerebral buzz that a good sativa will deliver, but don’t be fooled, as it lasts for only a brief period of time.
The indica effects quickly creep in and a floating, warming, body buzz takes over, which will have most patients looking for the nearest couch and snack bowl. This strain has been reported by medical marijuana patients to be great for migraines, general headaches, muscle spasms, loss of appetite, anxiety, depression, and multiple sclerosis.
Overall, Cali Connection’s Blackwater OG is deserving of its awards and reputation, and a treat to grow and use. This strain should be recommended for any indica-lover searching for a potent and easy-to-grow “purple” cannabis variety.
I guarantee it’ll add a connoisseur-grade strain to their cannabis garden, and cannabis patients will also be overwhelmed by its sensual appeal and effectiveness in treating countless ailments.
