Purple Kush Strain
Purple Kush is one of the classic Indica strains that helped create the backbone of modern cannabis genetics. This old-school cultivar has stood the test of time, delivering rich, musky flavors, knockout effects, and spectacular bag appeal.
The Purple Kush strain is said to be a cross of Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani—two landrace Indica varieties that originated in the mountainous region of Afghanistan. The hybrid made its way from Oakland, California, to the rest of the United States and quickly became a hit with Indica fanatics around the world.
This cultivar emits a charming bouquet that is earthy and sweet. Breaking apart the dense, purple-colored buds releases notes of damp soil, red wine, and sweet berry. It’s a subtle but delightful aroma that carries through to its flavor.
Purple Kush is a staple at medical marijuana dispensaries thanks to its incredibly relaxing effects. This strain is great for easing muscle tension, stress, and pain, making it easy to drift off after a long day. And with an average of 22 percent THC, its powerful stone will last for several hours.
As a pure Indica strain, Purple Kush grows short and bushy, with thick stems and broad, dark-green leaves that fade to violet shortly before harvest. This strain is easy to grow and is resistant to most pests and diseases. It thrives in a temperate climate, with moderate humidity levels, and can handle cool nighttime temperatures.
