Final Comments: I really enjoyed having the opportunity to grow Black Ruby. She was a pleasure to grow, very forgiving, and gave a great harvest. She is a very medicinal plant that helps in all area of my medical needs. From daytime anxiety and pain relief, to acting as a night time sedative, I couldn’t be happier. Her recreational effects are also worth noting. She’ll have you laughing at a funny movie, or enjoying the dream like effect she gives while hanging out with friends. I can’t recommend this strain enough!
