Purple Kush is a 100% pure Indica marijuana strain renowned for its potency and medicinal benefits. Purple Kush will leave you feeling relaxed and almost euphoric — perfect for destressing at the end of the day.

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 marijuana users should proceed with caution with this one.

 

Purple Kush Experience


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. This strain 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.

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, this is a must-try flower.

 

Traits of Purple Kush and Purple Kush Seeds


The fragrant aged berry aroma adds to the trance-like experience of this strain. Marijuana enthusiasts will notice the familiar earthy-sweet aromas of Kush lingering in the air, with real cannabis connoisseurs noting that sandalwood scent. When lit, this strain offers up notes of fruit and hash, with a heavy smoke that can make even experienced marijuana consumers cough. On the exhale, this strain has a sugary sweetness to it that will linger on the palate.

Seeds of this strain produce almost neon colored nugs that are riddled with purple if exposed to cold temperatures at the right time in their growth cycle. Orange pistils twist all the way through the leaves, as well as a hefty dollop of trichomes, giving this weed a sticky, resinous feel to the touch.

 

Medical Benefits of Purple Kush


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

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.
