I found some info on EU seed finder. It has black licorice smell in some flowers. I absolutely love black licorice, been wanting to grow durban poison but a herm most of the time. I would love to grow this at some point.

Field collected in December 2002 from farmed Local lines in the 'llanos orientales' region in Colombia by Breeders Choice member 'Aldous'.

The original seed lot received from Colombia is being stored for future open pollinations of the line for preservation purposes and the selection of exceptional single plants for ongoing breeding projects.

This seedlot is a first generation accession with selection only against inter sex plants found in the line.

Black Colombian is a seedline native to the eastern plains (llanos orientales) region of Colombia.

The 'Black' is a pure Sativa genotype typical of equatorial latitudes, the 'Black' was very likely was brought to Colombia by African slaves. Evidence for this origin is suggested by the presence of a distinctive anise/black licorice flavour detected in the smoke of its blackish green to pure black flowers.

Other similarities to African genotypes include a relatively mild body effect and a more pronounced clear, positive mental stimulation that renders the user extremely happy within the moment.

As an adaptation to an equatorial environment the Black matures its buds in several harvest 'windows' with the earliest from our test grow coming in at 15 weeks, the next coming 5-6 weeks later.

Seedlings show minimal variation. True to usual form the largest, fastest growing seedlings often show sex as males at 5-9 weeks of flowering.

At 15 weeks the buds can began to take on the black colouration. True black, not purpling derived from cold temperatures. Although not all plants display these traits, some will.

Should the gardener desire to get the Black to wind down budding to harvest as early as possible it is recommended to move the timer to an 11/13 light schedule or even 10/14.

Due to such long flowering periods it is recommended to use fertilizers sparingly in both amounts and frequency of application.
