Purple weed strains aren’t necessarily more “potent” than other strains, however they look freaking amazing. The first time you have a purple weed strain in your hands, you almost feel bad for smoking it because it’s so pretty. Almost like killing a unicorn.
Eventually you realize that you can always get more and the feeling of “nurturing your purple weed strain” dissipates and you smoke the shit out of it.
Today we’re going to be looking at 6 Awesome Purple Weed Strains you simply have to try for yourself.
Purple Kush Strain
Are you ready to smoke this pure indica strain? It’s a beautiful bud with some dark purple hues scattered all over. You can expect an earthy almost sweet overtone which is usually associated with Kush strains. You’ll have a long lasting euphoric sensation and all your muscles will completely relax, making it great for an “end-of-the-day” toke allowing you to destress from the day. Some people peak on this strain for almost two hours, meaning it’s a great strain to feel the power of your ganja and linger in it. Unlike most Indicas, most people don’t get the couch lock effect so it’s definitely something you can try throughout the day as well.
Purple Haze Strain
There are many growers that would lower the temperature of the veg state to induce the purple hues we all come to love, however this isn’t the case with Purple Haze. Purple Haze is also one of those infamous strains that has been spoken/and smoken about over the past few decades. Expect a highly euphoric sensation that could almost be a psychedelic experience. The sativa element of Purple Haze will get you off the couch and doing shit all day. It’s blissful energy with a very cerebral high.
To grow this bad boy (or girl), you’re going to be spending between eight to nine weeks in flowering. You’ll notice with the Purple Haze Strain that there’s purple interwoven with the green and plenty of crystals covering it like a sugary lollipop.
Purple Urkle Strain
On this list you’ll notice that most of the strains are “downers” in the sense that they are predominantly indica in nature. Purple Urkle is no different. This strain will knock you down and keep you down munching on pizza while bingeing Netflix. It’s got a definite stink to it, having some elements of skunk, grape and so forth. I almost equate it to a garbage can with fruit in it. It’s weird, but you smell that and your mouth will start watering.
This is not a daytime strain, but rather is your friend if you’re an insomniac (like me). Great for pain management and stress relief. The onset is rather quick and if you smoke a half a joint of this, falling asleep will be a breeze.
This heavy indica strain is eye candy as much as it is a potent stoned-inducing strain. With purple, reds, dark greens and some pink in the mix, it’s a very pretty strain. Additionally, this particular strain won the Cannabis Cup in 2000 for the Best Indica.
Blueberry has roughly 40 years of genetic history and has been perfected, cross bred and distributed ever since. This is one of those legendary strains that inspire people to write songs about it.
Medical Cannabis patients find that this is a great strain for pain management and stress reduction. Seeing that the buds are also very dense, this is also a great strain for making extracts. Just be careful, this strain will most definitely bake you and then deep-fry you afterwards.
Granddaddy Purple Strain
Granddaddy Purple is a monster bud with high THC count. Derived from cross breeding Purple Urkle and Big Bud, you have the flavor profile of the Urkle, but the size of the Big Bud. You’ll also notice that this strain is sprinkled with crystal resin, making it a powerful bud for making extracts.
Medical patients use this particular strain for pain management, anxiety, stress and insomnia. With a 60 day flowering time, it’s also a great strain for newbie growers who want to experiment with growing. You’ll be sure to get a big yield from this strain.
Grape Ape Strain
Grape Ape (besides having an amazing name) is a dense indica strain and a cross between Mendecino Purps, Skunk and Afghani. It gets its name from the distinct “grape–like” odor and because Ape rhymes with grape. As with most indicas, the Grape Ape will provide a body high and will relax all your muscles from the neck down. It’s a great strain to help with pain management, stress and anxiety however it isn’t a strain we recommend for daytime use because couch lock is usually a factor when smoking this strain. It’s also a perfect strain to make oil since it has dense resin covered buds. The flowering time for this strain is roughly 2 months.
