About this Hybrid Strain
The Purple Bud cannabis strain is an indica-dominant hybrid brought to us by Sensei Seeds, the same company that brought us the great Jack Herer strain.
It has thick branches and leaves that can withstand high winds and big drops in temperature. Most of the Purple Bud plants have long green leaves, sometimes mixed with shades of indigo. An array of orange pistils stands out in the green buds. In the purple-hued buds however, one has to look closely as the pistils are browner and blend in with the darker background. The white crystal trichome hairs offer the flower protection and make the plant’s overall color brighter.
The Purple Bud strain has a floral odor with hints of sweet berries. Smoking or vaping this strain accents flavors of blueberry and sandalwood.
The effects of Purple Bud purportedly take a few minutes to settle in, so it’s recommended to start with smaller serving sizes. Purple Bud THC levels average between 15-20%. These levels don’t seem overwhelming, but when too much is smoked too fast there is always a possibility. Consumers reporting a sedating body buzz have also noted analgesic benefits that make everything feel just right. Some users report that this strain enhances the senses, making music groovier and a slow dance that much more sensual.
Regarding lineage, Sensei Seeds took a strain that was a cross of Hindu Kush and Purple Kush and then bred that with a strain that was a cross of Afghani and Jamaican. The Purple Kush, Hindu Kush, and Afghani are all reputedly known for their sedative narcotic-like properties. The choice was made to use a solid landrace sativa like Jamaican whose properties would express themselves amongst all that Indica influence. This resilient sativa strain is the perfect balance to a trio of cannabis strains that would normally sedate the user.
