Purple Kush Strain?
Also known as “Purple Hindu Kush”, Purple Kush is a pure indica that sets itself apart from other indica hybrids with its eye-catching colors and pleasant taste. It was originally created by breeders in a neighborhood of Oakland, California dubbed Oaksterdam, one of the oldest legal medical marijuana areas of the United States. Purple Kush is a cross between two South-Central Asian indica landraces: Hindu Kush, from the mountainous Pakistan-Afghanistan border, and a purple-tinged variety of Afghani. With 100% indica genetics, it provides a slow and relaxing full body stone. Named a Top 10 Kush Strain by High Times magazine in 2016, Purple Kush has THC composition ranging from 17% to as much as 27%.
Purple Kush: The Dank Purple Princess Of Kush
Purple Kush is a stunning plant with vibrant violet and lavender flowers and foliage. She is the product of crossing choice Hindu Kush and Purple Afghan cultivars. This head-turning purple princess has more bag appeal than Louis V. Purple Kush is a knockout in more ways than one. After a wave of euphoria takes you high, her creeping couch-lock will take you deep. Rich, earthy, hash-like smoke with a hint of grape goes down smooth.
Indoors or outdoors in warmer climates, Purple Kush will develop her signature purple colors during the bloom period. Cooler nighttime temperatures will accentuate the process. After 8-9 weeks of 12/12 in the grow room, fat, frosty, purple bushes will be ready for harvest. Outdoor growers should plan for very branchy 1.2-1.5m tall plants finishing flowering in early-mid October.
Purple Kush’s bag appeal isn’t only limited to visuals — the buds also have a standout taste. The initial impression is similar to the odor of Afghani strains, with an earthy, almost sandalwood musk. Closer inspection brings out sweet and fruity notes of grape. When combusted, the flowers have a simultaneously fruity and hash-like odor and smoke, which can sting sinuses and bring about heavy coughing. On the exhale, smoke from Purple Kush has a sugary grape-like taste that may remind some of sweet dessert wine or purple cough syrup.
