Mendocino Purps

Unknown Indica
Mendocino Purps is a famous strain from Mendocino County, California. This strong indica-dominant hybrid replaces pain with a powerful, sleepy sensation.

Mendocino Purps is an award winning Californian strain. It goes by many names, including Mendo Purps, Mendocino Purple, and The Purps. It was clone-only for a while, but BC Bud Depot has stabilized the genetics and now offers seeds. The genetics of this strain are unknown, but it is strongly indica-dominant. Though it is technically a hybrid, you can expect heavy sedation from Mendocino Purps. THC levels reach upward of 20%, so Mendo Purps is pretty potent.

Inexperienced consumers may find themselves with a bad case of couch-lock after a few puffs. This flower's drowsy effects make it best for late afternoon, evening, and nighttime use. Great for a rainy day or when you don't have much to do, Mendocino Purps cultivates a chill, relaxed vibe.

Medical patients tend to like this strain for pain. The strong, physical effects of Mendocino Purps make it a popular choice among those with muscle spasms. Patients who struggle with nausea and lack of appetite may also find relief with this strain. Of course, anyone looking for a break from chronic stress will appreciate the blissful euphoria this hybrid provides.
