Now that medicinal marijuana is legal in approximately two-thirds of states, the race is on to find the best strains to ease pain, improve sleep, and elevate mood. With Black Domina, Sensi Seeds has developed a marijuana strain capable of dominating your senses and overpowering your body. Described as being a wonderful ‘assault’ on the senses, Black Domina is a strain that takes no prisoners.
What is the Black Domina Marijuana Strain?
Although a lot of breeders tend to play it safe and experiment with two or three strains, Sensi Seeds is no ordinary breeder. The world-renowned organization created Black Domina from no fewer than four strains: Ortega, Hash Plant, Northern Lights, and Afghani SA. As a result of its colorful heritage, this strain’s THC content varies significantly from 12% to 24%. It also contains up to 0.1% CBD.
Therefore, the Black Domina seeds you purchase belong to a strain with pure Afghan genetics which of course originated in the legendary Hindu Kush mountains. This strain will ultimately develop into a small or medium-sized plant with elongated leaves. As it allows you to grow a significant number of plants in an enclosed space, Black Domina is a popular choice amongst commercial breeders.
Black Domina Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
Marijuana aficionados certainly enjoy watching Black Domina grow. Its thick and dense nugs feature a deep purple hue which makes the strain appear black at a glance. There is also red ‘hair’ that covers the trichomes. You will enjoy this strain’s gorgeous scent during the flowering stage when it offers a nutty and earthy aroma with a hint of citrus.
Black Domina is not designed for users who enjoy a sweet taste. Instead, it has a smoky and spicy taste that may cause you to think there is also hashish in the bowl or joint.
Black Domina Marijuana Grow Info
Sensi Seeds specifically developed this strain for indoor growing using a hydroponics set up. Black Domina is an adaptable strain and responds especially well to the Sea of Green (SOG) method, a form of growing weed that forces early flowering. It is possible to enjoy a bountiful yield of Black Domina with a vegetative stage of just two weeks!
SOG involves changing the light schedule to a 12/12 setup (12 hours of light, 12 hours of continuous darkness each day). It enables you to fit more plants in an enclosed space. Although the yield of each plant will be smaller, the overall yield will increase. One of the great things about the SOG method is that you don’t need any special cultivation skills; there is no need to prune or train, for example.
Once you have germinated your Black Domina seeds (hopefully feminized ones), grow them in the normal 18-24 hours of light per day setup until they are at least 10 inches high. Give the plants some space (no more than two per square foot), and force flowering by introducing the 12/12 light schedule. The short stature and single primary cola of Black Domina make it ideal for the SOG method.
If you grow indoors with a hydroponics system, the flowering period should be no more than seven or eight weeks. It isn’t unusual for Black Domina plants to yield 14-16 ounces per square meter planted indoors. This strain is ideal for first-time growers because it is highly resistant to mold and pests. Black Domina includes a huge cola with dark colored buds, and it tends to grow no higher than 4.5 feet indoors.
As for outdoor growing, you could try to grow Black Domina in a Mediterranean climate, but it isn’t recommended. If you take on the challenge and are successful, you can get up to 14 ounces per plant, and it will harvest in October.
Black Domina Effects
This strain is almost entirely indica so be wary of its sedative effects! We recommend experimenting with a small amount because Black Domina is potent. Users report an elevated mood, and occasionally an increase in creativity. However, once the physical high kicks in, the strain’s sedative properties come to the fore.
It will release your tension, and soon enough, you will succumb to couch-lock as your body becomes completely relaxed. As you lie down, you will experience a state of pure bliss and become overwhelmingly positive. As a result, make sure you don’t use Black Domina during the day; it is a late evening or night time strain only.
Medical Benefits of Black Domina
As you can probably guess from the likely effects, Black Domina is the strain of choice for insomniacs. An increasing number of users are also seeking out this strain to reduce their stress levels or combat anxiety disorders such as PTSD.
Although you will feel lazy after the high kicks in, Black Domina’s potency means it could be useful for individuals suffering from chronic pain. In some cases, it has also proven useful for gastrointestinal issues.
Possible Negative Effects of Black Domina
As is the case with many marijuana strains, Black Domina is known to cause dry mouth. Some users also report dry eyes as well. We don’t recommend using this strain if you are a novice because it can overpower you, and a common side effect in this instance is a dizzy feeling. If you are unused to powerful strains, there is a chance that Black Domina could elevate your levels of anxiety and stress.
Final Thoughts About This Marijuana Strain
If you are seeking a heavy narcotic indica, Black Domina is the strain you have been waiting for. It is an outstanding night time option for users who have problems sleeping, either due to insomnia or because severe pain keeps them awake. We’ve even heard that this can be a wonderful option for Restless Leg Syndrome, as it helps calm the body into an utterly deep state of total relaxation.
Also, the high can last for up to 90 minutes, which is ample time for you to relax, clear your mind, and get ready for an outstanding night’s sleep. Take a few tokes, forget your worries and before you know it, night has been replaced by morning.
