Take a journey into uncharted territory with Northern California Natural Collective’s very rare Black Pearl. This girl is armor-plated purple and fiery orange with a luminous, green stem. Airy like a sativa, it’s got dense, thick, iridescent tusks that are coated in long-stalked trichomes. Truly mystical, Black Pearl is a four-way cross that’s maybe 65 percent sativa, melding: Haze; Blue Dream (Blueberry x Haze); Blue Mystic and Mr. Nice. You get Haze’s sativa buzz, Blue Dream’s smell, Blue Mystic’s stunning hues and Mr. Nice’s thickness and indica stone. Refreshing, grassy, purple and piney, on the grind things get more complex: spicy, peppery and sweet. Minty, strong and smooth on the smoke, with a similar taste, Black Pearl takes you on a journey. Such a complex hybrid covers a long list of patient needs, from nausea, to pain, asthma, glaucoma, migraines and fibromyalgia.
