Purple Kush has earned the reputation for being one of the most potent strains in the world. And it’s an incredible experience from start to finish. Everything is on point, starting with the beautiful purplish tint of its buds and moving through to its heavy, smoky taste and especially its distinctive body high.
A lot of the magic of Purple Kush stems from its potency. While most Indica strains have around 12.5% THC, this one averages anywhere from 15.5% to a mind-blowing 22%. Those numbers explain why a smoke sesh with Purple Kush is sure to be one of your most memorable.
The main effects of this strain have to do with the body highs it produces. Expect to feel super relaxed, sedated, and maybe a little sleepy. Especially massive doses may leave you couch locked, but one of the great things about Purple Kush is that it puts a lot of users right in that sweet spot of utter relaxation without being incapacitated. With that said, don’t plan on using this if you’ve still got a lot of important things to do with your day.
Along with the distinctive body high, you’ll also feel a nice sense of happiness and euphoria. Those sensations are the perfect complements to the primarily physical effects of Purple Kush.
Scent & Flavor
Purple Kush smells earthy with some slightly sweet undertones. The smoke is rich and tasty. Some users also say they pick up a slight flavor of grape or some other similar fruit.
Some users experience adverse side effects that include paranoia, dizziness, and anxiety. And of course, plan on feeling hungry after smoking this one. You’ll also probably have cotton mouth and dry eyes.
This one’s best utilized in the evening and at night time. Use it in social settings where you’re fine hanging out in a low key, relaxed scenario. The strong body highs it produces make it an excellent choice for people dealing with insomnia, aches, and pains, or appetite loss. The sense of euphoria it gives many users can also be used to help cope with stress, depression, and anxiety.
Purple Kush comes from the legendary cannabis scene of Oakland, California. It was created when breeders crossed Hindu Kush with Purple Afghani. Both its parents are Indicas with high levels of THC. Given its parents, it’s no real surprise that Purple Kush is as potent and powerful as it is.
This strain can be tricky to grow, so it’s probably not the best choice for beginning growers. If you know what you’re doing, though, this strain can be grown both indoors and outdoors relatively well.
The plants won’t grow that tall and will bushy in shape and size. Expect it to start putting out flowers around eight weeks. The buds will be green with amazing flecks of purple throughout.
