The pure indica cannabis strain Purple Kush is known to be one of the 10 most powerful strains in the world. It exudes a sweet, earthy and sometimes woody smell and taste reminiscent of grapes. When ready to reap, its buds are dense and dark green with vibrant hues of purple laced within the leaves.
Its parents are both potent indicas: Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. Purple Kush first blossomed in Oakland, California.
Its THC levels average at around 15-16% with some reaching as high as 28%. The high lasts about two hours and provides a powerful sedating effect that relieves pain and spasms throughout the body. It’s received plenty of positive reviews from consumers throughout the world, expressing it provides euphoric, numbing, and calming effects both in body and mind. If ingested via foods, it can last up to eight hours. Purple Kush is best consumed at nighttime.
Other than cotton mouth and dry eyes, this strain is known to induce paranoia in consumers that are not yet used to cannabis’ effects. Dizziness and headaches have also been negative side-effects if consumed improperly.
Purple Kush is versatile, being a great strain to grow either indoors or out. When cultivated, it produces dense buds and short stalks. Quality is normally ideal, whether a novice or expert grower. When ready for reaping, tints of purple within the buds become vibrant.
