Dry Yield (grams): 30 grams
 
Growth Comments: I had fertilizer issues with a bottle of opened 6 month old Advanced Nutrients going sour…I was totally stumped the first round and was thinking a number of things were the problem, but it wasn’t until i saw the same problems occurring on run 2 that i realised it was the nutes that were the problem, not me. ;) I didn’t want to hit the hydro store again, so instead I decided to just run Bloom Nutrients for the whole cycle… worked out alright!!
 
Comments on smell (during growth, harvest, etc.):
  
The Smoke: Very nice smooth fruity toke…not as piney tasting as Stone Dragons I have tried, leans more to a fruity pine taste.

9 Smoke ability (Rate the smoke ability of the sample from 1-10 harsh-smooth) Very smooth
 
4 Smoke expansion (Rate how the smoke expands in the lungs from 1-10 stable-expander) Quite easy on the lungs…vape though, even harsh joint toke is generally smooth.
  
Address final questions immediately after effects have worn off.
 
The Dosage (number of hits taken to reach desired effects): Full bowl 1/3rd gram
 
2 – immediate Effect Onset (Rate how quickly the effect hit from 1-10 immediate-major creeper) Near immediate effect felt.
 
8 Potency (Rate the potency of the sample from 0-10 none-devastating) Very, very strong
 
Hours the effect lasted: 2.5 hours and additional lingering effects.
 
0 Tolerance build up (Rate how quickly tolerance builds from 0-10 none-rapid) I smoke many varieties and mix it up all the time.

Indoor Grow report
 
Growth Rate: 5/10 – I am rating this plant with the errors I made being included in the rating. Tiny girl, but hey did just fine considering no fresh veg nutes were used!!
 
Flower Density 8/10 – Nice denses nugs. Not rock hard, but really nice solid density once dried
 
Flower Potency 8/10 – Very potent bud on the Black Stone, certainly leaning toward a heavy Body stone, with fairly strong psychological effects.
 
Flower Scent Strength – 7/10 Nice strong smell on the Black Stone. Not open a jar and fill the room with stink, but she does have a pretty strong smell.
 
Flower Scent Appeal – 9/10 There is some pine in the back ground, bu there is also a deep berry smell that is just sweet. Very, very appealing.
 
Flower Visual Appeal – 7/10 Very nice coloured bud, with a nice light purple and sometimes red tinge…very nice. Excellent crystal.
 
Mold Resistance – 10/10 Not a speck of mold on this plant…I have minimal circulation in the grow space, so the last 2 weeks i have a PC fan pointing near the main cola.
 
Final Comments: I Have grown 3 different Stone Dragon’s and this Black Stone and all 4 plants have impressed me greatly. Lets see, great medical benefits, excellent smell and taste, small frame perfectly suited to a vertically limited growing space, and these plants have all packed on some major bud versus the amount of space they take up. From now on I will be growing a Stone Dragon and Black Stone every time I fire up the stealth cabinet.

    Awesome review man! She was thick!!! Very beautiful photos as well. Glad she tickled your sweet spot. Blackstone effects me differently. The stuff I have get my mind going 100 mph very up feeling then after an hour the indica effects come in to sit me down.

    Hey thanks for the comments and for the rep @Stone @Jedi frost @chillfred @MediScrogs .
    Truth be told I am not sure about the effectiveness of the Stone Drag or black stone on migranes…when I feel one coming I have been smoking Amnesia Stone and it has been working very well…managing to keep them at bay with the AS!!

    Differences between the Blackstone and Stone dragon will be outlines once I get the 3 part stone dragon med review finished. There will be some differences for sure, but overall I find them to be fairly consistent in the type of buzz.

    Of course feel free to pull anything you want from my reviews, content, template, whatever you see you can use bud.

    Since I have been smoking the AS I have only had two migranes get away from me and become fairly bad(I reserve the smoke for times when I feel a headache coming on). Considering I have had an average of 3 migranes a week that get rough, I am very impressed with the positive reaction of the AS.

    Looks like I am to get the Amnesia Stone as well now, my Mrs constantly runs into headaches / Migraines.

    Hey bud….can you contact me in regards to effect to migranes for your wife? I am very interested to know…i should note that i have to feel the migrane coming and hit the AS right away for it to work…if i let it get harsh, nothing stops it.
