LINEAGE
Purple Elephant is a connoisseur strain. Difficult to grow, this craft indica features a wonderful grape aroma, giggly effects, and up to 25% THC.

Purple Elephant is an indica with a mysterious background. Thought to be an offspring of Purple Urkle, this sleepy flower has a deliciously sweet berry and grape aroma. Hints of earthiness and an herbal quality come through on the inhale. For some, this strain may be quite pungent. Taking a dry pull off of this strain is recommended before smoking or vaporizing.

A potent bud, the THC in Purple Elephant is quite high. In some tests, this strain has reached up to 25% of the psychoactive. This means that Purple Elephant is a strain best left to experienced consumers.

Novices may find this strain to be a little too sedative for comfort. Cannabis-savvy individuals, however, this strain can provide a pleasant sociable high and plenty of laughter. However, watch out for heavy eyelids and some yawning as the experience winds down.

Medical cannabis patients often pick up Purple Elephant for pain and insomnia. Many with inflammatory conditions and tension headaches also find relief with this bud. Further, it is also popular among those with mental health conditions like depression, chronic stress, and anxiety.

Growing Tips

This strain is aconnoisseur plant. Purple Elephant is not something to grow if you are searching for a cash crop. Rather, this picky flower will gobble up nutrients and require some tender love and care. The prize is an extremely delicious and potent strain with happy, lightly tranquilizing effects. Top Purple Elephant during early, vegetative stages of growth. This plant will also need ample training and the lower branches pruned to control height.  Purple Elephant is clone only and it is very difficult to find. This strain does well indoors, but outdoors it will need a hot/ Mediterranean climate. A similar strain is Grape Stomper, which is more readily available.
