The flowers from this sativa-dominant hybrid (85% sativa/15% indica) appear brightly colored green with a furry coat of trichomes. The aroma drifting off these round buds smells of cool earth, berries, and of course skunk, and the flavor that comes through the smoke tastes much like it smells.
This strain is good for unwinding after a long day, but it’s not so sluggish that it will put someone down for the count. Purple Skunk is recommended for managing pain, inflammation, cramps, and dispelling stress, fatigue, and depression. It’s a strain that can be used throughout the day, whether morning or before bed.
Common side effects from Purple Skunk include slight anxiety, cottonmouth, red eyes, and dizziness in some users.
