Despite its unknown origins, Black Cherry Soda is an indica-leaning hybrid strain that has become renowned for its fruity, soda-poplike flavor. Used to spawn other popular strains, such as Ace of Spades and Black Dahlia, the direct lineage of Black Cherry Soda remains a mystery. One reported story is that the strain was gifted to TGA Genetics and crossed to create other strains, but the breeding collective did not develop the original Black Cherry Soda strain.
Black Cherry Soda plants are reported to grow tall and produce medium to large yields, leading to chunky, resin-laden colas that can take on a lush purple appearance, sometimes without even a hint of green.
This strain is said to have an aroma of berries and an earthy undertone, along with a berry-flavored soda-poplike taste that ultimately inspired its name.
One batch of the Black Cherry Soda cultivar, grown by the Washington state-based cannabis cultivator Mad Mark Farms, was tested by Confidence Analytics and had THC levels that exceeded 26%.
