Origin: West Coast

Average THC: 13 – 17%

Average Price Per ⅛: $40

Strain Profile

The Science: Loaded with potential health benefits, Blackberry enjoys a wide array of cannabinoids working in a synergistic manner. Typically tipping the scales for its total active cannabinoids at over 15.00 percent, SC Labs performed a “full spectrum cannabinoid profiling and analysis” to reveal this strain’s medicinal potential. Fluctuating based on nutrients, cultivation techniques, and the growers’ curing method, the total Δ9THC+THCA content will absolutely vary from batch to batch. That said, according to the high-performance liquid chromatography test, the average Blackberry cannabinoid profile found at your local dispensaries should maintain a similar profile. Comparatively high to other strains in Cannabigerolic Acid (CBGA), this batch of Blackberry tested at 0.16 percent GBGA.

Appearance:  Unlike her namesake, the Blackberry marijuana strain looks like the hearty Indica hybrid she is. Revered by connoisseurs, her large flared out calyxes are accentuated by her glistening trichomes and snowy glands. A mild-mannered superhero in disguise, her color and appearance flash pastel tones of purple and green.

Consistency: Encased and sheltered by the extract artist’s gold – this resinous lady requires more than a hand to shred. Provided you’re not totally ill-equipped for the task, we strongly suggest the use of a good grinder … or at least a sharp pair of scissors. Remember, wasting good cannabinoids on bad habits is expensive and wasteful.

Scent: The Blackberry strain has a soothing character that gently captivates your attention; she has an acrid sweet air with a refreshing twist, one that will remind you of a gentle spring breeze. When properly cultivated and cured, Blackberry enjoys a floral aroma with bittersweet undertones which are highlighted when agitated. Sweet, earth-ish and fruity, Blackberry barely maintains her token discretion while out in public.

Taste: Her flavor is sweet, strong and earthy. Weighing heavily on the palate for a moment before exposing her syrupy and seductive undertones, your mouth will water, your eyes will glaze and your taste buds will be delighted.

Effect: No longer stressed out, angry, or lacking focus – Blackberry instills a sense of relaxed euphoria and blissful concentration.

Strain Background: Blackberry’s name was derived from an understandable combination of parental names: a cross between the notorious Black Domina and a sweet hybridized Raspberry Cough. A Sativa-dominate hybrid, Black Domina is thought to have originated in Washington State’s Seattle area. Then, as a clone, she made the long and arduous trip to Amsterdam. In this hybridized strain, Blackberry was a union of Raspberry Cough, an Indica-Sativa hybrid of Nirvana’s ICE strain, and an old-school landrace strain hailing from Indochina.

Medical Uses: Great for mitigating nights of never-ending insomnia, the occasional bouts of lethargy, post-election depression, and of course stress and pain.

Growth and Seed Info

Note: As is true with most cannabis strains, Blackberry is extremely fond of consistency. She thrives in stable environments where temperature, nutrients, and atmospheric changes are minimal. Due to Blackberry’s slightly finicky requirements, the individual’s yield will vary based on the cultivator’s skill set, and ability to maintain favorable growing conditions.

Alice in Wonderland Marijuana Strain Review

Strain Overview

The Scoop: Like chasing the White Rabbit down its dark and mysterious hole, ripping a sweet bong load of Alice in Wonderland alters our perception of an all too often dull and lackluster world. Entering a domain of the surreal and fanciful, consumers confront their own Hookah-smoking caterpillars and smiling Cheshire cats. Inspiring individual creativity, this purportedly Sativa-dominant offspring of Willy’s Wonder is a relatively new hybrid with an enigmatic gene pool.

The Result: Alice provides inspired creativity that tends to make the world seem “curiouser and curiouser!” A great early morning or late afternoon smoke; Alice in Wonderland arouses untapped inspiration while alleviating tension, melancholy, lethargy, and those annoying daily aches and pains.

The Verdict: Alice in Wonderland alters the fabric of time and broadens our perspective of the known universe! “Alice: How long is forever? White Rabbit: Sometimes, just one second.” Notwithstanding of the philosophical implications of time, Alice in Wonderland arouses the subconscious mind – igniting some rather high-minded inspiration.

 Alice in Wonderland marijuana test results

SC Labs test results for Alice in Wonderland

Strain Characteristics

Type: Sativa-dominant hybrid

Also Known As: Alice Wonderland

Genetics: Willy’s (a.k.a. William’s) Wonder x Mysto Sativa

Origin: Lewis Carroll / California

How Stoned Will You Get: 8.5

Average THC: 17-20%

Average Price Per ⅛: $45

Awards: “Not yet”

Strain Profile

The Science: By drilling down on the cannabinoid profile for Alice in Wonderland we see a strain that has a total THC content of 22.6% – of which 19.9% is Δ9THC. On the CBD side of the cannabinoid spectrum, there is only a combined total of .06% for both CBD and CBDA. Unfortunately, no terpene test was performed on Alice in Wonderland by the skilled technicians at SC Labs. As such, short of hearing from the specific cultivator who initially created this highflying strain, its true genealogical roots are difficult to determine. Note: By performing a simple terpene analysis of a mysterious strain with unknown origins, consumers can easily gain some much-needed insight on the strain’s potential health benefits.

Appearance: Petite and delicate, the flower from Alice in Wonderland is diminutive in size yet dense in nature. When fully mature, Alice’s blondish and translucent trichomes become cloudy and opaque.

Consistency: Depending on how the individual batch of Alice in Wonderland was dried and cured, she should be sticky but not moist. As is true with most of today’s modern strains, a grinder is the preferred tool for shredding this lady in preparation for your trip down the rabbit hole.

Scent: Aromatic and captivating, the sweet and flowery earthlike fragrance emitted by Alice encourages the daily Mad Tea Party to be held at 4:20 p.m., rather than always at 6 o’clock as insisted by The Mad Hatter.

Taste: A swirling flavonoid profile of mossy earth and sweet citrus creates a dizzying first impression. Sure to please even the pickiest of Hookah-smoking Caterpillars in the extended smoke circle, this strain tastes as good as it looks.

Effect: Purely inspirational, Alice in Wonderland quiets the blind fury that rages unchecked within patriarchs and matriarchs alike. No longer compelled to scream “Off with their heads!” your Queen of the castle will appreciate this stoney little flower.

Strain Background: Created by crossing an Indica-dominant Afghani, Willy’s Wonder, with a yet-to-be-identified Sativa, Alice’s specific genetics are still cloaked in mystery.

Medical Uses: Though her gene pool is still considered relatively questionable, her medicinal effects are not. Anecdotally speaking, Alice in Wonderland is attributed with reducing worry, melancholy, exhaustion, discomfort and stress-related headaches.

Growth and Seed Info

Note: In the hopes of providing only the most accurate and useful information for the end-user, we have reached out the original cultivator of Alice in Wonderland. Once Marijuana.com is in receipt of their response we’ll be updating this review with all relevant ‘Growth and Seed Info.’
