Black Mamba Strain

Black Mamba Strain. There are at least three or four different strains that go by the same name. But then again, it could also be because some people took theories on its origin as facts. In other words, it could be one strain but listed as having different genetic origins.

Information about Black Mamba:

Sativa/Indica % Indoor Yield Outdoor Yield Flowering Period
40% / 60% 12-16 oz/ m2 12 ounces per plant 7 to 8 weeks indoors, Late September to early October outdoors.

So, for all intents and purposes, we are focusing on a particular strain that is more Indica dominant. It is also one that not only gives users a great body relaxation but one that has great medical benefits. Possessing a higher than normal CBD, the Black Mamba strain we are talking about is one that can ease pains.

It seems that there is no consensus on the exact genetic lineage of Black Mamba. For instance, there is a variant that is a cross between Blue Bubblejuice and Black Domina. This one is pretty much a balanced hybrid so it is, for sure, not the same as what we are featuring here. Another is a cross between two Sativas, Vietnamese and Black Congolese. Again, this cannot be the parents of our Indica dominant strain. Still, there is another which could be an offspring of Critical Mass and Skunk. Finally, it could also be a cross between Granddaddy Purple and Black Domina.

Come to think about it. Trying to figure out which is which is an exercise in futility. It is far better to think about the greatness of Black Mamba.

The potency of a strain can sometimes be confusing. For instance, the THC levels of one strain differ from one batch to another, as well as one source to another. Nonetheless, over time, we have come to realize what it can do for most users.

Black Mamba does not have a powerful onset but if one were careless, it can knock one out. For some, as the effects kick in, they feel a slight pressure mounting on their temple and around their eyes. Soon, a gentle sensation of relaxation starts to envelop the user. In turn, this leads to the general sense of feeling uplifted and happy. In some cases, there are also people who feel euphoric.

Black Mamba Effects 

Naming this strain Black Mamba must have due to the potency of a venomous African snake. Its powerful Indica effects also come with analgesic properties. It means that using a little too much is likely to lead to a couch-lock. Other than that, its ability to induce deep relaxation is one reason for using this strain.


Black Mamba has a skunky tone which is in stark contrast of a sweet and almost floral scent. As strange as this combination is, it does work well together as most people should find it agreeable. It may not be the best smelling cannabis hybrid, but it should not turn away people.


As for how tastes, the stronger tones of pine wood blends in as its scent carries over. While it is almost undetected in its smell, the hint of berry is evident as one takes a puff. It is due to the fruity blend that users find the Black Mamba a delight. Its smoothness during inhalation and exhalation is also a bonus.

Adverse Reaction

Using cannabis is not without its adverse reactions. The good thing about Black Mamba, if one can call it like that, is that it does not pose a danger. Experiencing dry mouth and eyes is common and is not detrimental to the health.

Black Mamba Adverse Reaction

About the only thing that users should keep in mind is to use cannabis within limits. Otherwise, excessive use heightens the negative reactions.


Like many hybrids, Black Mamba is of great benefit to medical cannabis users. The heavy Indica effects aid in the alleviation of pains and aches, including headaches. Its ability to induce body relaxation helps in reducing stress. As such, it may even be useful to people dealing with depression.

As is the case with many Indica heavy strains, after an intense body high, users feel sleepy as it wanes off. For this reason, Black Mamba is one strain that is excellent for passing time. But if there are things to do, then its use is going to be a hindrance to accomplishing tasks. For Insomniacs, the fact that it can make people feel sleepy should be a great news.


The Black Mamba (Kobe) retired as one of the greatest of all time in the NBA. With no hope of matching that greatness, we can grow greatness instead. Black Mamba, the plant, grows in both outdoor and indoor environments. Either way, so as long as the climate is the same as the Mediterranean, it will be fine.

Black Mamba Medical 

As the popularity of growing plants indoor keeps growing, there are two choices here. Growers have the option of using soil as a medium or better, use hydroponics. Although there is more work to do when growing indoor, plus it is more expensive, the rewards are worth it.

Flowering Time



It takes around 8 weeks for the Black Mamba to be ready for harvest. But using hydroponics could shorten that by a week. Regardless, the estimated yield per square meter should be around 12 to 16 ounces.



If grown outdoor, Black Mamba should be ready in the last days of September to the first days of October. We could not find a definitive source, but it is safe to assume that the yield for each plant would be around 16 ounces.

    Can’t really explain it, but this strain makes me laugh so hard I’m fearful of having a heart attack! Certain things become so funny that I simply have to look away or think about something else to get a grip. Laughing buzz runs off/on for about 1-1.5 hour then mellow followed by a segue to pain-free (solid 8) sleep. Loopy head high for sure.

  2. Matt Nash

    I picked some of this up at my “association” in Barcelona. It was recommended as a good Indica to use for sleep. The kind lady was right! I’ve had a good night’s sleep ever since. The bud itself is exactly as described on the main review. Dank wit fine dark red/orange hairs intermingled with green. I wouldn’t say it’s very good for creativity but for relaxing it’s perfect. Definitely not a wake and bake strain unless you plan on spending the day in bed. I’ve just run out of this so I’m a little sad.

    Quick onset, really great for crushing anxiety edit: efficient for pain relief, but headache inducing

    This strain is an utter Godsend for me. I am bipolar and there are times when I feel myself slipping into Mania. Typically I would just have to ride it out and apologize to my wife and friends when the mania ends. Sometimes it lasts a few hours. Sometimes a week. This has ALWAYS been the hardest thing about being bipolar….becoming manic and losing control and seeing the trail of destruction I leave behind me has been devastating. But this strain….it takes me from manic to normal in 5 minutes. The first time I tried it, I was about 3 hours into mania and I was saying a lot of mean things to my wife. I felt like I was having an out of body experience and I couldn’t feel empathy, love….anything. That’s when she told me to go smoke and come back. (Weed is still a new form of medication for me. I HATE chemical drugs and will let that be a last resort….). So I did….when I came back, I felt 100% normal. I was horrified by my actions and was able to see the monster I became. I must have apologized 100 times….I felt so removed from my mania that I could clearly see my actions for how destructive they were. Mania always takes out all emotion and love from me….when I smoked this strain….it’s like everything returned to normal. We ended up talking and crying together for the next hour as we worked out a lot of my problems with ways to prevent this from happening in the future. Look, I have an amazing, loving wife to which I am extremely blessed. But and I have always seen being bipolar as this dark side that is such a burden to the ones I love. This strain changes everything. I thank God for this strain….you have no idea how much stability it has brought back into my life. Just an hour ago, I felt myself feeling manic, so I smoked from my pen and like it has in the past, it cut everything I was feeling and brought me back to normal. It also allows me to work like I normally would. I am still sharp and focused…I’m not wanting to pass out or in a state of couch lock. I was thinking about how there has to be others out there like me who need help and I wanted to share my joy. God Bless you guys…. **I vape this strain from an O-Pen. If you are in LA, go to The Wellness Earth Energy Dispensary in Studio City. They have hands down the biggest Vape selection.

    This strain is an utter Godsend for me. I am bipolar and there are times when I feel myself slipping into Mania. Typically I would just have to ride it out and apologize to my friends when the mania ends. Beautiful buds! Nice pungent and grape taste. Great for in the evening.

  8. Rema

    Strong, and sour dank taste. definitely very stinky, smells like sour grapes. Unique and beautiful color too. This one is a definite favorite of mine because of the awesome body effects and happy highly high.

  9. Wilmax

    I really love this strain. I can function just fine even though it hits you like a brick. I really enjoy dank, diesel-tasting, heavy-hitting Indica and this really fits the bill. It helps with my anxiety/panic issues and relaxes me for a good night’s sleep. In my top 5 for sure.
