Purple Kush is thought to be one of the most powerful strains in the world. This 100% indica provides a long-lasting sedative experience. New users should proceed with caution with this one.

Purple Kush is one long-lasting indica. Expect a slow, heavy physical relaxation to work its way over your body. A blissful, euphoric fog eases away mental strife and stress. A Californian cross between Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani, this sedative strain is the perfect nightcap.

Though this strain provides a deep and meaningful sense of relaxation, it's not for beginners. Purple Kush is thought to be one of the most powerful strains in the world. It is 100% indica, meaning that it has potent, almost narcotic-like effects. In fact, this strain was one of the oldest medical strains to come out of Oakland.

The body-numbing sensation from Purple Kush makes it an excellent choice for those with chronic pain. Whether it's a back injury, extreme muscle tension, or muscle spasms, this indica is likely to be a favorite. When pain keeps you up at night, Purple Kush slowly rocks you to sleep.

Experienced consumers also like this strain for unwinding after a stressful event. If you're feeling blue and just need to veg out or hit the hay, Purple Kush will lend a hand. The fragrant aged berry aroma adds to the trance-like experience of this strain. If you can handle upward of 20% THC, Purple Kush is a must-try flower.

Growing Tips

Purple Kush does well in screen of green (SCROG) environments. This plant tends to have a short, bushy structure which makes it perfect for indoor hydroponic systems. You'll want to top or pinch Purple Kush. With proper topping and some light stress training (LST), this strain will get as wide as it is tall. Outdoors, Purple Kush does well almost anywhere. However, this strain is best-suited for a dry, warm climate. This strain also likes to stretch its roots, so large containers are recommended for soil planting.
