Trevor ChatikoboThis week folks our strain of interest is the world famous Purple Kush. This is surely one of the more known marijuana strains and some might argue that it actually is the most popular strain. Purple Kush is a pure Indica strain that originated from the Oakland area of California. It actually is a result of a of cross pollination between Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani.  Many stoners are under the assumption that purple Kush is the purple weed, but that’s not the case. Purple Kush doesn’t have to be purple in color. Purple marijuana is really a result of being exposed to cold temperatures during the final stages of flowering. The smoke is a strong and flowery taste with a very high THC level. The high usually lasts about an hour or two depending on the drying and curing process and off cause on the tolerance level of the smoker.  Tolerance is based on many factors such as experience and generally how bodies react to pot. Growers love this strain as it does well both indoors and outdoors. I would not recommend this strain for new smokers.

The high TCH levels of Purple Kush makes it a favorite for most of todays stoners-who seem to be chasing that very high “potency”. Some say Purple Kush is the most potent strain of weed but I don’t agree with that. I feel that various strains affect folks differently so we can’t collectively  say a particular strain is the most potent. Potency in marijuana can also mean different things to different folks. Some might consider strains that make them fall asleep more potent whilst other might say the strains that make them hungrier are more potent. My point really folks is, there is no universal definition of potency within the marijuana circles.

Purple Kush adopts well indoors and outdoors. Due to current marijuana laws most Purple Kush is grown indoors, resulting in most of it these days not the color purple as the temperatures are controlled indoors. Purple Kush does very well in a screen of green (SCROG) setup. The buds form close-fitting chunky nuggets with signs of purple in the tips of the calyxes, as well as the soft pine bouquet and a sweet, grapey taste on an earthy substance. If grown indoors the plant will grow in the range of about 2-3ft in height.  Purple Kush will usually star flowering after 8 weeks and also has some very high yields.Trevor Chatikobo

Purple Kush is a favorite for medicinal marijuana users. It’s very strong body high makes it popular for those suffering from pain or insomnia. Recreational stoners might actually hate it for that reason. Indicas are not really a favorite for folks who want to get stoned and have a good time because Indicas like Purple Kush usually makes one very sleepy after some hits .  I personally like to mix staff up between sativa and indica as my body gets a better high that way. Half and half joints might not be a bad thing for some so please try that out some time.

This strain is also very easily available in North America. Lately it was very hard to get any of the Kush strains in Europe but lately some improvements are taking place. Even Amsterdam was not too big on Kush but the high influx of North American visitors has created the demand and a few coffee shops now carry Purple Kush in Amsterdam. That’s it for now folks.
