Black Beauty is a strain like none other. This bud produces a 2:1 ratio of THC to THCV, a cannabinoid that is being studied for weight loss and diabetes care.
Black Beauty is an anomaly in the cannabis world. Not only does this strain produce dark black buds, but it also produces a 2:1 ratio of THC to THCV. THCV is a lesser known cannabinoid that has shown potential in animal models of weight loss and diabetes. Strains high in THCV are difficult to find.
But, if you happen to come across this mysterious hybrid, it’s certainly worth a taste. Not only does Black Beauty feature a tropical pineapple, floral aroma, but this bud provides a cerebral high with a fast onset. Unfortunately, you can expect the overall effects to wear off rather quickly.
While this strain may not sound so exciting for recreational consumers, this bud is extremely promising on the medical cannabis front. Though there is still work to be done on these plants, patients with Parkinson’s Disease, autoimmune diseases, inflammatory diseases, diabetes, and obesity may be interested in this plant and others like it.
