The Black Diamond buds provide solid body relaxation effects with creative and social mind energy. The tasty blackberry flavor sticky buds burn slow and resinous - they jammed up the spliff. I'd smoke these buds in the afternoon and evening.
BLACK DIAMOND Indica-dominant
The Black Diamond 90/10 Indica-dominant strain was born from the breeding of the Blackberry and Diamond OG strains. The Blackberry strain is from the breeding of Black Domina and Raspberry Cough, Diamond OG is suspected to be a phonotype of OG Kush (Source). Black Diamond buds have an average of 20% THC, 0.139% Beta Caryophyllene, 0.196% Limonene, and 0.47% Beta Myrcene (Source).
BLACK DIAMOND Looks
Plenty of shine from these multicolored Black Diamond buds. Dark green, light green, and purple tones from the leaves and buds - ample purple color when the buds are split open. Small mats of spindly and bright burnt orange pistols. Fuzzy and resinous with the ample coating of trichomes - these are some sticky buds, they're not crumbling like the usual bone dry buds that I usually get. A few leaves that could have been trimmed, I'll give these sticky buds a 3 out of 4 on the fluff scale.
BLACK DIAMOND Scent
Strong and sweet, slightly pungent - berry, floral, and red wine scents from the Black Diamond Buds.
-- extended fits of giggling are not uncommon. Throughout all this stimulation, a strong body stone persists ... Black Diamond also has several applications for medical cannabis patients. Its strong, almost narcotic feeling of sedation can effectively numb aches and pains, whether temporary as due to injury or chronic as due to diseases like arthritis or lupus. Its mellow euphoria may also take the edge off of mild to moderate cases of stress, anxiety, and depression. Finally, Black Diamond can be an antidote for insomnia, pulling users into a deep and restful sleep. Because the frantic feeling of “mind race” is not often reported with this strain, it can be a good choice for those who are prone to panic or paranoia.
OCB Premium Kingsize Slim Rolling Papers
These OCB Premium Slim kingsize rolling papers in their black pack with the shiny OCB holographic watermarked pack sounded like a good pairing for the Black Diamond buds.
Using the matching roll up OCB filter tip with the easy fold perforation marks with this spliff.
Ultra thin papers, I'm guessing 12g per square meter. These OCB Premium Slim papers are a little wider than the 41mm width OCB X-PERT Slim-Fit papers - these OCB Premium Slim papers are 45mm wide.

Black Diamond Taste
First Toke... Interesting berry and woody kind of thick smoke flavor, almost creamy, slight spice at the tail end - very smooth toke. Cheeks and lips lightly numbing.
5 Minutes After First Toke...
Second Toke... More berry and smooth and creamy thick smoke flavors. Third Toke... Sweet berry flavors, slight piney wood backend - not so much spice but terpenes building, mouth tingling. Brow, top of the forehead, and top of the head cushioned. Taking a few sips of water.
Black Diamond Effects
10 Mins After First Toke, Fourth Toke... More mouth tingling, these sticky buds are burning slow. 5 Mins Later... Heart rate and breathing rate increasing slightly, light energy building in the solar plexus - mind is feeling energetic, getting some smiles.
15 Minutes After First Toke...
5th Toke... Love that thick and smooth - berry and pinewood flavor. Mind and eye lids are relaxing slightly, slight cushioned energy building in the chest, spreading out to the arms. 6th Toke...
20 Minutes After First Toke...
Eyelids are a little puffy, happy feels lightly bubbling up from the solar plexus, a very slight perma-grin - enough to lightly tighten the upper cheeks, yeah I've got some smiles. Hand to roll the spliff between my fingers to loosen up the sticky buds, the spliff hits were getting tight.
30 Minutes After First Toke...
Warm numbing at the front of the brain, another drink of water. 7th Toke... I noticed with this last encore toke that I wasn't getting air flow. The cherry end of the spliff was rock hard, the ample resin had liquefied then hardened - these sticky buds would be better suited for a blunt or bowl. Got up for a few to see how the effects felt moving around, it surfaced some major grins, noticed the solid relaxed body and head effects - a lot of front of the brain and head cushion. Mind is cushioned, a slight slap happy and light absent mind feeling - numbed and euphoric.
1 Hour After First Toke...
Smoothed out effects, cushion relaxed mind and body - pleased feels. 2-1/4 Hours After First Toke... Energies have leveled, solid numb relaxation effects still - could easily drift away to sleep now if I wanted to, going out for a couple more tokes then off to bed not too long after.
The Black Diamond strain gave a solid body relaxation with a cushioned but energetic and focused mind - good creative and smoke spot social energy. I'd smoke these buds day or night.
