One example of purple weed is Purple Kush, an Indica dominant strain from California. The straightforward name may suggest it is simple, but it’s a potent strain with a subtle mix of flavours including grapes, berries and citrus.
There are around a couple of dozen widely available purple strains of marijuana in today’s marketplace. The seeds of these strains produce plants that have a noticeable purple colouring on the leaves and stems as well as on the buds. At one time, only plants grown outdoors and subjected to cooler temperatures displayed the purple colour, but intensive breeding programmes over the last couple of decades have also served to emphasise this quality.
Even when you grow strains with well attested purple qualities, the amount of colour that you see in your final crop will be strongly related to the growing conditions that you employ. Plants will still also exhibit the more common green colouring, but it’s the purple tones that catch the eye.
Another purple strain well worth a second look is Purple Widow, a well-balanced Sativa and Indica hybrid that’s prized not only for its purple colour, but also for its powerfully cerebral hit and its excellent yields.
Grandaddy Purple (GDP), popular on the Californian medical marijuana and cannabis club scene, is Indica-dominant strain which gives a good display of purple hues. Its flavour includes notes of fresh berries and exotic spices, and the high is powerfully physical and relaxing. Medical practitioners recommend it for muscular pain and insomnia.
Some say that purple is the colour of good judgement; Purple Queen is the cool purple strain for the wise weed grower indeed. Sticky green is good, but pure, frosty purple flowers are fantastic. And not just to look at. Purple Queen lays the smackdown. Her powerful physical effects will take you deep. Deep into the couch and probably the fridge, too. Smooth, full-bodied Kush flavour with a slight lemon twist will delight your palate as you gently float off to dreamland.
Purple Queen reigns supreme in the cannabis garden. Indoors, or outdoors in temperate to warm climates, these cannabis seeds can and probably will stun you with her gooey purple nugs. In just 8 weeks of 12/12, or by mid-September outdoors, she will be ready for harvest. Purple Queen is a compact, branchy Kush hybrid that will mature to purple dream weed without a fuss. She’ll fill out lateral grow space and will rarely exceed 1m in height. Over thousands of years, the ancient Kush genetics from which she is derived have developed incredible resistance as well as spectacular purple hues. Purple Queen can tolerate high doses of fertilisers and will thrive in any growing system from organics to hydroponics.
