Did you know Purple Kush is also known as “Purple Hindu Kush”? Purple Kush is a pure Indica that sets itself apart from other Indica Hybrids with its eye-catching purple hues and lovely grape-like taste. Fun fact: it was originally created by breeders in a neighborhood of Oakland, California that went by Oaksterdam, one of the oldest legal medical marijuana areas of the United States of America.
In our honest opinion, this is one of the strongest strains ever.
Purple Kush is considered a classic Indica strain. Its popularity is likely due to its powerful and relaxing potential effects. Purple Kush is a cross between two Asian Indica landraces: Hindu Kush, from the mountainous Pakistan-Afghanistan border, and a purple-tinged variety of Afghani.
Purple Kush has an iconic smell of earthy sweet grapes and a taste of earthy red wine.
With 100% Indica genetics, it provides a slow and relaxing full body stone. THC levels have clocked in as high as 27% THC. This is some powerful medicine. There is no doubt though that this strain is 100% Indica and hits like a sledgehammer or donkey kick to the head. We would save this strain for before bedtime or for aches and pains and advise anyone to be careful with dosage.
Purple Kush Benefits
Purple Kush eases you straight into physical relaxation. Although there are some mental effects, they have more of a psychedelic, distorted nature than a cerebral nature. This flower will for sure bring forth a state of contentment and bliss. You can bet your bottom dollar that you will be grinning from ear to ear permanently during this journey and heavy body stone will come at some point for a nighttime of enjoyment until you fall fast asleep.
Purple Kush Appearance
Let’s chat a bit about Purple Kush appearance. The dense flowers are covered in trichomes, giving the green and purple leaves a dewy white sheen. Orange pistils/hairs, intended to catch pollen from male plants, stand out against the already colorful flowers. A beautiful contrast of white on purple and green ensues. Bag appeal is 10/10. Small furry bright neon green nugs with rich purple and fiery orange hairs and dark purple undertones. These nugs are frosty with fine white trichomes and sticky with sweet resin.
Purple Kush can also be effective as a medication. Its powerful sedative effects can blunt some symptoms of anxiety and depression. It can also be surprisingly effective in relieving all sorts of pain. Like the aches that set in after a hard workout or chronic, like the nerve-related pain that comes with cancer or fibromyalgia.
This BC Weed Strain deserves more recognition especially with it being close to a landrace strain.
Purple Kush Plant Region
Agriculture is our foundation. Shaped by the land and lessons of his family history, our Master Grower learned the value of community from his father. Today MG carries on this tradition by bringing together a collective of world-class growers, each with a lifetime of experience and a common goal of producing some of the best cannabis in the entire world.
We pay homage to the classic BC strains line, as well as multiple outdoor varieties adapted to the West Coast. Our goal is to bring the classic bangers while keeping things exciting with new popping genetics.
With long summer and a dry harvest season, the Rock Creek (Southern Okanagan) landscape is ideal for growing cannabis. The Golden Mile is one of the most fertile areas in Canada as it’s a perfect climate with tons of sunshine, lots of heat, cool at the right times, not too extreme and very little rain. The land is beautiful for growing cannabis
Under the sun of the Kootenays in BC, we grow cannabis with an approach that blends generational sungrowing wisdom and mastery with hands-on knowledge of legacy grow practices.
In addition, we use the data collected from every year’s grow in order to optimize different growing styles to achieve maximum efficiency and yield. The combination of grow site selection, the favourable climate in Rock Creek, the genetics crafted for the region, and a dedicated farming work ethic allows us to achieve historical yields year after year.
There is nothing like enjoying the outdoors under the warmth of the sun. Why should it be any different for plants? This is what sets sungrown cannabis apart from indoor cultivated buds. The natural sunlight permeates the plant and gives a special quality to its cannabinoids and terpenes.
