Strain Review: Hashberry
Earthy and fruity, Hashberry is a high-quality, indica-dominant strain. From its origins to appearance, medical use, effects, and cultivation habits, Laci Macri reviews this award-winning cannabis for Maximum Yield.
Hashberry Origin and Genetics
Originally from a territory in India called Kashmir, Hashberry got its name from the region’s reputation for producing high-quality hashish products. Like many other popular strains, Hashberry has undergone several variations in its lineage along the way. Some of the best Hashberry you will find in California is spawned from a cross between two powerful indica strains—Kryptonite and Kashmir Kush—and she certainly lives up to her parents’ expectations.
The uniquely high THC content of its parent strain Kryptonite has remained one of the most notable features of the Hashberry plant. This quality helps to produce a non-drowsy body sensation that is very relaxing. Hashberry has won awards over the years and consistently delivers across a span of different parameters.
The poster child for high-quality cannabis, Hashberry is known for its super dense, perfectly formed buds. On a scale from one to 10, with one representing the lightest-colored cannabis you’ve ever seen and 10 being the darkest, the cured flowers of a Hashberry plant are around a seven. This color is primarily made up of two different shades of green and dark, rust-colored stoma. The aroma of these buds is equally as stellar, with pungent whiffs of spicy, earthy, and fruity berries rampant.
Hashberry Medical Uses
Medicating with Hashberry has been reported to relieve migraine headaches, body pains, and trouble falling asleep. Surprisingly, however, if you are well-rested, it is also suitable to be used during the day without inhibiting your ability to interact with others or be productive. In other words, although it is recommended for sleep disorders, it is not your typical couch-lock nighttime-only medicine. The effects set in quickly and the user starts to feel an intense body high. While partaking, you will feel uplifted, both physically and mentally, in the most comfortable of ways. It’s kind of like a magic carpet ride.
Hashberry Growing Patterns
For an indica-dominant strain, Hashberry can be a moderately heavy yielder, assuming all environmental conditions are optimized. Its indica roots are manifested in its stature, as it typically grows to be more squat and stout, with dark green foliage and wider fan leaves at the base, narrowing toward the tip.
Hashberry is a good strain to grow indoors as it is unlikely to stretch much taller than most standard grow tents. It is important to space them generously, though, to allow for their maximum reach potential.
This strain feeds relatively heavy and may require additional supplements such as cal-mag to accommodate its unique nutritional demands. Flowering Hashberry follows typical indica traits, averaging right around a 60-day flowering period.
As the buds approach the final ripening phase, they really start to dense up and harden pretty consistently from the top cola all the way down the chutes to the center zone of the plant.
Purple hues will be more apparent when grown indoors, as temperatures are more easily controlled compared to an outdoor growing environment. This strain is very manageable to grow, even for beginners.
