BB King Strain Takes You Out of the Blues

BB king strainB.B. King is a strain that was developed several years ago and is named after the iconic blues musician B.B. King. It is an indica dominant strain that comes from a mix of Blackberry Kush and Afghani strains. One of the most noticeable things about this strain is its short stature while growing and the dark purple buds it produces. B.B. King is consistent with your typical indica strains in that it is a mellow high that is good for relaxation and sleep. You’re not going to feel much like getting off the couch after smoking some B.B. King, so it’s more of a night time strain, although you can smoke it at any time of the day.
One of the best attributes of this plant if you are growing it is that for an indica it produces a massive amount of buds. Usually you only get yields as large as B.B. King produces if you are growing a sativa strain, but you will be surprised at just how much bud these plants put out. These plants also tend to have a relatively short growth period and finish up several weeks faster than average indica strains such as Granddaddy and Purple Kush.

This strain gives off a nice, strong head buzz as well as a cool body high and the taste is said to be very similar to OG Kush. In general this strain has gotten a ton of positive reviews and people tend to really enjoy smoking on this strain. B.B. King does have a bit of sativa in it, however, as the plant is seventy five percent indica and twenty five percent sativa, which gives a good balance to the high by still having a bit of a woken up and active feel.

B.B. King was originally developed by MGT Seeds, who likely gave the strain the name due to the initials of blackberry Kush, which is one of the two parent plants to this strain. It is said that this plant does very, very well indoors and that you are likely going to get a great yield that produces a large amount of tight, dense buds. These plants grow much bigger outdoors or in a greenhouse and they tend to be fully done by late September or early October, finishing several weeks before most plants. Overall this is a great strain that you should definitely give a shot.
