Purple Kush is another one of the pure Indica strains that Farmers Lab Seeds carries. It has distinguished itself from the beautiful array of colors it can produce as well as the pleasant taste when consumed.
Purple Kush Strain Origins
Purple Kush seeds were first bred in the Oakland, California region of the United States and are a cross between two South Central Asian Indica landraces: Purple Hindu Kush (from the Pakistan and Afghanistan) and the Afghani strain -which provides its purple-tinged accents. As it has pure Indica genetics, it provides the strong overall body stone and relaxing function associated with this genotype. It ha a rich tradition of the general public -having High Times naming it to the top 10 of Kush strains. Purple marijuana can have a range of THC composition -from a low of 17% up to a whopping 27%. It has a medium sized appearance and a dense heavy bud structure. Depending on the specific strain, purple cannabis can have an equal balance between leaves that are green and purple. When the prevalence of purple is present, this is a strong indicator of the purple Afghani strain.
Like Purple Afghani Kush, the high concentration of sticky resin makes it a recommended choice for the production of hash. The orange pistils designed to catch pollen and another color to stand out from the already colorful flowers.
Purple Kush Weed Consumption
The odor of Purple Kush may remind one again of Afghani strains with its earthy almost sandalwood musky flavor. With a nuanced sense of smell, one can pick-up sweet fruity notes reminiscent of grape. When combusted, these smells combine to provide a hash-like odor with flowery fruity undertones present. Again, with its heavy smoke, heavy coughing is often a result. The inhale can provide a grape-like taste reminiscent of a dessert wine or cough syrup.
Purple Kush Effects
Purple Kush does not ease the user into a body-stone but rather slams them into intense physical relaxation. The mental effects are more psychedelic than cerebral with enhanced calming effects of tactile interaction. It will not enhance your mental alertness but rather slip you into a dopey sense of content. The permanent smile of purple Kush lends itself to nighttime social relaxation or solidarity introspective release. It is a wonderful tool to be used in meditation.
Medicinal Application of Purple Kush
Like many pure Indica strains, it can be used to treat anxiety and depression. It can also be incredibly effective in reducing both situational pain (post workout aches and pains) as well as chronic nerve damage pain that can be a result of cancer or fibromyalgia. Finally, insomnia can often be treated with Purple Kush.
Growing Purple Kush
Purple Kush is an excellent strain to be grown indoors as it grows low and bushy. As with all Farmers Lab Seeds, it can be grown indoor or outdoors depending on your location and climate. As Purple Kush rarely exceeds 3 feet, much plant can fit in a small space. To get the incredible array of colors that these plants can emit, shocking them to activate the anthocyanins through exposure to cold temperatures is recommended -but only just before harvesting so as to reduce the overall yield. Purple Kush weed flowers within 8 weeks when grown indoors and purple Kush yield is around 37 grams per square foot of plant
