Considering that 1996 Sensi Seeds’ 4-way indica hybrid Black Domina has been standing for merciless terrific indica energy, quickly flowering, fat yields and a extremely particular aroma. The Doc fell below her spell and got her in his develop area for a cultivation test. This strain story tells you what it was like for him to encounter Black Domina…
Introducing the grower
The Doc is a extremely skilled and knowledgeable develop veteran who, blessed with a large green thumb, has been cultivating the Mary Jane plant for about 40 years. Extensively admired for his extraordinary stately plants with major buds from the bottom to the prime, he has gained himself a worldwide reputation as a prime notch marijuana grower. He earned his nickname for his potential to usually completely nurture his plants and normally fulfil their wants in any way, and in the uncommon case of a trouble occurring, to make the right diagnosis and repair it.
When the Doc flipped by means of the Sensi Seeds catalogue, he got caught by Black Domina, couldn’t avert his eyes from the strain photo, and all of a sudden a forceful voice in his head seemed to command him “grow! me! now!”…
For really some time, he had felt attracted by that strain, and now that he was about to start off a new cultivation cycle, Black Domina had eventually place him below her spell. Feminised seeds had been ordered in the blink of an eye and whilst waiting for their arrival, on the Sensi site the Doc study up about Black Domina: She’s a 4 way cross launched by Sensi Seeds in 1996 in which the energy of 4 of the most effective indica strains ever bred is inherent: Northern Lights, Ortega Indica, Hash Plant and a particular Afghani named “SA” – so Black Domina comes with the energy of 4 Indica hearts! This quadriga gave birth to a 95% indica cultivar the leaves of which rank amongst the darkest in the planet of cannabis strains, possessing the prospective to appear nearly black.
Black Domina brings forth various favourable phenotypes, all of them displaying indica dominant traits such as stout bushy development, low height, quickly flowering (50-55 days), major tight buds and lavish resin gland formation. She’s quick to develop and therefore a good develop area companion to any sort of gardeners, from newbie to professional level. Her heavy yield prospective and rapid finish tends to make her a worthwhile alternative for industrial growers as nicely.
A strain with such a name naturally raises the expectation of mighty potency and Black Domina absolutely does not disappoint in this regard – her numbing indica buzz is so robust that customers could think about it a veritable narcotic. Which has the potential to swiftly make 1 fall asleep if not ready for such a walloping impact. For persons suffering from insomnia although, that sort of impact is advantageous of course. Black Domina also has outstanding medicinal properties when it comes to muscle rigidity and discomfort relief for instance. The complicated smell and taste of this wide variety is uncommon and unmistakable as soon as sampled, it is extremely savoury zest blends an earthy fundamental Afghani note with tones of blackberry and black pepper. In its finish, connoisseurs will recognise a common black hashish flavour.
Immediately after the seeds had arrived, the Doc’s Black Domina session got began. Immediately after two.five days, the two seeds shown had effectively germinated. In the 3 vegetative weeks offered, they revealed the exact same development pattern, developing into bushy compact indica plants. The only distinction was to be discovered in the leaf shape, with 1 of the plants generating additional narrow leaves than the other.
When flowering was induced by switching the light cycle to 12/12, they measured 34 and 37cm in height. Lauded the Doc, “I like this strain a lot currently by now. An indica with great vigorous development correct from the start off, with no that sluggishness that other indica strains in some cases show in the starting.” He decided to give his two Black Domina plants names and named them Emma and Carmen. Immediately after 5 weeks into flowering, The Doc reported “the stretching element was nearly 100% which I hadn’t anticipated. Even much better Emma and Carmen are exhibiting voluptuous curves currently at this stage. All through their bushy side branches, they’ve formed thick flower clusters with a pretty attractive higher calyz-to-leaf ratio, with masses of white hairs emerging from these, and there’s a lot of bling-bling, also, as the flowers are currently decorated with numerous gleaming trichomes. Also, their scent increasingly gains intensity and complexity, I’ve got a great notion currently of how condimental the buds will smell in the finish.”
The buds kept on becoming thicker, additional resinous and smellier, and right after seven weeks of flowering, the finish was in sight. With a flowering time of 55 days, Emma managed to mature just in time. Carmen flowered a bit longer, requiring 59 days to create into a complete-blooded domina. in the course of ripening, Emma’s shade leaves had turned light green in the finish, but at least her sugar leaves has a darkish look. Carmen although had wrapped herself in an totally dark green leaf coat, searching like a accurate domina. She was also a tiny bit additional resinous, while Emma’s buds had been heavily incrusted in crystals as nicely.
In terms of fragrance, they differed only pretty slightly. Each of them gave off a profound odour that, just as stated by Sensi, consisted of fruity-tangy and peppery tones overlaying an earthy oldschool Afghani basenote. Emma’s final measures had been 63x63cm, “a square voluptuous marijuana domina”, comment the Doc with a grin. Carmen was nearly as wide and tall, she arrived at a final height of 58cm.
The buds of each Black Dominas had been rock-tough – ahead of and right after the drying course of action. Place on the scales, the entirety of buds weighed 213grams which created The Doc cheer “they’re two sensational heavyweight dominas, such a low height resulted in such a higher yield, actually incredible.” He was shocked that the buds of each ladies smelled ,markedly sweeter right after the drying course of action, “and it is a floral sweetness strongly reminiscent of violets – some thing I’ve in no way witnessed with cannabis buds so far. But below this sweet topping, that savouriness and pepperiness is nonetheless present, too”, explained The Doc.
The Doc was complete of satisfied anticipation when he placed his “Mighty” vaporizer’s nozzle to his lips to test the poer and flavour of half a gram of Black Domina. A peppery prickling spread in his nose when he sucked the 1st load of vapor into his mouth exactly where it released a concentrated sweet savouriness that seemed to accumulate in thick coatings mainly because the aftertaste was exceptionally intense and lingering on the palate unusually lengthy. Immediately after the second hit, the show was about to start, Black Domina began to workout her huge indica energy and The Doc felt his head and physique becoming as soft as wax. The vapor clouds billowing from the vaporizer into his head seemed to circulate in there and thicken into a heavily numbing fog which created his eye lids droop and close. The effective Black Domina stone weighed on his physique and thoughts like tons, and The Doc was overcome by an irresistible wish to lie down in his bed. “Rien ne va plus!” was the final believed he had ahead of he fell into a deep lengthy sleep. With Emma, this situation was precisely the exact same in the subsequent evening.
Concluded by the Doc. “Black Domina has completely lived up to her name. With her mighty indica potency, driven by the energy of 4 heats, she took commend and brought merciless stonedness more than me. She gets higher marks from me in all departments: her developing and blooming efficiency, yield, potency, smell and flavour. Thanks go out to Sensi Seeds for this tremendous outstanding indica hammer!”
