The Sativa profile gives you that head high that some consumers love while still giving you a mellow body buzz that isn’t overpowering. You can use Blackberry and still have a clear head to get work done.
Because this isn’t a Kush strain, newer users can try the Blackberry Cannabis strain easily without going into coughing fits or having a burning feeling left in your chest.
