What is the purpose of using a very dark color for text instead of a pure black?

I have seen that some web designs implement an almost black font color (hex #001c00) in their designs instead of a pure black color (hex #000). Does the design actually benefit from this or is this practically the same as using a black color? I am a hobbyist web designer and developer and can't seem to grasp the difference.
