The 75% indica and 25% sativa genetic makeup of the Berkel strain makes it a unique indica-dominant mix. This strong strain was created by crossing two well-known and respected strains: Pre-98 Bubba Kush, which is famous for its calming and energizing effects, and Granddaddy Purps, which is famous for its strong medicinal effects and complex grape and berry smell.

Berkel's genetic background takes the best traits from both parent types and blends them into a unique mix that can be used for both recreational and medical purposes.

When grown indoors, the Berkel strain usually takes between 8 and 9 weeks to flower. For indica-dominant hybrids, this is pretty normal. It lets growers find a good mix between a quick harvest and the production of strong, fragrant buds.

Smell & Taste

Berkel's taste is a mix of the earthy, coffee-like notes of Pre-98 Bubba Kush and the sweet, fruity hints of Granddaddy Purps. A lot of different tastes are to be expected, with hints of grape, berry, and a little spice.

Like the taste, the smell is sweet and earthy with fruity and floral undertones, making Berkel a pleasure to smell and taste.

Personal Experience With Berkel Strain

“As a weed enthusiast with a lot of experience, I've tried a lot of different strains, and each one promised a different experience. I will always remember my trip into the worlds of rest and euphoria with the Berkel strain, though.

The day I got Berkel, I was interested in its genetics—it's a strong mix of Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Granddaddy Purps, two strains I really like because they have strong effects and rich flavors. Along with a tapestry of deep greens and purples, the buds were thick and sticky. They were almost too pretty to grind. But as soon as the sweet, earthy smell with hints of berry and spice filled the room, I knew I was in for a treat.

I took a deep breath in and the first hit was as smooth as silk. It had the rich, complex tastes of coffee and berries with a spicy undertone that danced on my tongue. The taste was an exact match for the smell, which was so enjoyable that I looked forward to each draw.

My surroundings became softer as the affects started to wear off. Like being gently hugged by an old friend, a wave of relief went through my body. The worry and tension in my muscles went away, and I felt completely calm and happy. I felt like Berkel weed had wrapped me in a warm, comfortable blanket and kept me safe from the chaos outside.” Gavin Kushman, strain expert.
