About this Hybrid Strain

Purple Skunk is a sativa-dominant hybrid that was originally created back in the 1980’s by Dutch Passion Seeds out of Amsterdam. It comes from crossing Skunk #1 with Old Purple. This beauty has been really popular amongst growers in Oregon for its reputedly smooth and relaxing effects, and the ease at which it grows.

The dense and chunky nuggets are mint-green in color with patches of amber and streaks of purple. Long and coiled orange pistils run wild, while a trichome frost gives the buds a fuzzy look.

Purple Skunk has a strong skunk odor of course, with a delightful mix of sweet berries and cherries. Combusting this strain releases a delicious sour grape flavor reminiscent of a glass of Chianti Classico.

This beloved classic strain has been classified amongst users as an aphrodisiac. Sensations of touch reportedly become greatly enhanced, leading to heightened levels of arousal. This sativa-dominant strain reportedly enhances focus and creativity as well as energy and arousal. Its versatility makes it the perfect companion for the gym or a bike ride, if that special someone to cuddle up with isn’t around. Popular for medical users with anxiety, depression, and PTSD, Purple Skunk is a great tasting hybrid that can brighten up the day.

The big rise in popularity lately for Purple Skunk has been due to the rise in cannabis cultivation. Purple Skunk is natural resistant to mold and mildew. It also thrives in both hot and cold weather. The Purple is even expressed in both hot and cold weather, albeit more in colder weather due to the activation of the anthocyanins, or the pigments that express the lovely purple color. All in all, Purple Skunks grows like a weed, and gives generously. It is capable of easily giving over a pound of flower per plant in about 8 weeks.
