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.

Growing Tips

To get THCV to express, this strain does best outdoors in a hot, northern Californian climate. Indoors, this strain will flower at an 18/6 flowering time. To boost THCV indoors, this bud will need some ultraviolet light. Plants will grow quite tall, but flowering time is short. Overall, Black Beauty is considered easy to cultivate. There are three different genotypes of this plant. One will express blacker coloration, one will express hermaphroditism, and another will be higher THCV producing. All in all, this strain typically features purple and green coloration.
