Blue Knight Strain (Dark Knight Strain) - Everything you need to know & more!
Blue Knight or Dark Knight strain is an exceptionally rare, indica-dominant strain. It was bred from two very well known strains, and is therefore considered to be royal or noble. The main reason for its name is the fact that it’s a strain of noble birth, but also because it has deep blue or purple buds mixed in with the normal green hues. This combination makes for a very beautiful strain, which is considered by many to be top-shelf. It has a berry, vanilla aroma that should be enjoyed inside a flower vaporizer, for maximum taste value.
This strain is sometimes called Dark Knight strain, Purple Knight strain, Knights of Pineapple, or The Blue Knights strain.

Blue Knight strain: Indica or Sativa?
Dark Knight strain is an indica-dominant hybrid, but only very slightly. Some people would argue that this strain is very well-balanced, which increases its popularity even further. Well-balanced hybrids are amongst the most popular of all marijuana strain types in this day and age because you get the warm relaxing hug of an indica whilst also being given a burst of cerebral energy from a sativa. Dark Knight strain is fairly strong, and it has a very rich aroma and flavor.
Blue Knight strain genetics
It’s hard to say who the original growers were, and, therefore, it’s even harder to find seeds for this strain. However, what is known is that this strain descends from two incredibly well-known lineages. The two strains which were crossed to create the Blue Knight are:
Blueberry is often crossed with other strains to create exceptionally dank strains because of its flavour, yield, and reasonably strong potency.
Blue Knight weed THC percentage
The average balanced hybrid has around 13% THC content. Blue Knight normally tests at around 18% THC potency, but some strong phenotypes can test as high as 27%. This can be pretty strong, especially for newer smokers.
Blue Knight weed strain price
Blue Knight is top-shelf and exceedingly rare. You also can’t really find the seeds online. This, unfortunately, means that if you can find this strain you’re going to be paying at least $20 a gram for it. Some places may even charge you more than this, but it should be worth it!
Blue Knight Strain taste
Blue Knight has Blueberry as one of its parents. Read: you can always expect a nice blueberry smell as well as a sweet and berry flavor. This should definitely be enjoyed inside a flower vaporizer. By not wrapping your herb up in a paper and lighting it, there’s no combustion of either plant material or paper. That means there’s much cleaner smoke, which simply tastes far superior. You should also grind your herb up first for maximum taste. The full taste profile of Blue Knight is:
Blue Knight Strain oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.
Strains most commonly used for concentrates are tasty, potent strains. Obviously, Blue Knight has both taste and potency. This makes it a perfect option for creating Butane Hash Oil. However, this process can be incredibly dangerous if you do it at home, so it’s highly recommended that you take precautions, or simply don’t do it. People have been known to burn down their homes using this extraction method.
You can also use any strain you want to make edibles. You simply need to stick your weed in the oven for at least an hour and then mix it with a fat or oil. This process is called decarboxylation, and it turns THCA into THC. Without decarboxylation, your weed edibles won’t have any potency. The other method of making edibles is to use already vaped bud (AVB), which is the leftover from your vaping endeavors. AVB is perfectly decarboxylated weed.

As a relatively balanced hybrid, this strain can actually be used to fight hard-to-treat conditions such as depression. This is further supported by the fact that it has a high potency, which makes something like depression even easier to treat. Treatment simply won’t work everyone, as some people prefer pure sativas for depression, or simply find that weed doesn’t help at all. The thing about weed (and all drugs, really) is that it affects all people in different ways, so there’s no catch-all terms or catch-all treatments. If you do want to try the marijuana route for treatment though, people tend to look for balanced hybrids to treat depression.

- Relax, breathe, and just think happy thoughts
Blue Knight Strain flowering time
The flowering time of Blue Knight is around 8-9 weeks. This is among the fastest flowering times possible for cannabis. It’s highly recommended that you leave your flowers for the maximum amount of time for full flavor and full potency.
Blue Knight Strain growing tips
If you do find seeds or clippings of this strain, then you should definitely continue to take clippings from every single plant. This means that once you get one clipping, you basically have unlimited amounts of this plant. You will need a semi-humid climate with temperatures of around 23 degrees celsius every day. If you want the purple or blue hues to this plant, you also need to shock it with cold spells in the late stages.
Blue Knight Strain seeds
The seeds of the Dark Knight strain aren't available from any known seller. There are some sellers who of course claim to sell this strain, but whether it’s the original strain or not is definitely up for debate. The only real way to find this strain for growing is to have access to clippings, which 99% of us do not.
