The one and only true purple, used by breeders since the early 80’s, Purple #1 from Dutch Passion is beloved for her 50/50 indica/sativa genetics, unusual color and wicked high. 10-15% THC.
Heritage & Genetics: Originally bred from some great Afghani genetics, that have sadly been lost to the mists of time, Purple #1 from Dutch Passion has become a true classic since Henk Van Dalen, introduced her to The Netherlands in the early 80’s and crossed in the sativas. Today, its one of those rare, straight 50/50 indica/sativa hybrids, that gives a balanced high with all the best benefits of both. Loved by growers for her good, outdoor yields (even in Holland) and beautiful coloration; and by cannaisseurs for the wonderful high.
Flavor & Aroma: A little rough on the throat but spicy and very herby in the flavor. A real earthy cannabis taste, and a light but not overwhelming aroma: handy for when discretion is required.
Effect: Purple #1 has a fast acting, sturdy high, that though not long in duration, has a lovely consistency to it. More ‘up’ than stoned and with a potency that will make you mellow as hell but not flatten you completely, Purple #1 is a mild, very pleasurable smoke that is refreshing and perfect for using in the day as well as at night.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that THC could be responsible for the energy-boosting effects of some strains. This moderate THC, low CBD strain may, therefore, be somewhat helpful for coping with fatigue although high THC strains are thought to be more effective. The moderate THC level of this strain could also provide some relief from mild aches, pains, and stress.
Grow Characteristics: The wonderful, deep purple coloration that comes through in the flower is delightfully still visible in the dried, sticky, fruity bud – you’ll see bands of it in the nugs. Very hardy and now completely adapted for Northern European climates, Purple #1 is a great outdoor plant; very resistant to pests, mold and mildew. According to the breeder up to 90% of plants have the unusual, purple coloration which gets deeper with colder nights (the pigment protecting the plants against the cold). The plants, in good conditions, can produce a sizeable medium yield. Purple #1 is not suitable for indoor growing, and often gets very tall within the relatively short grow period. Bud can be a beautiful violet color, sticky and very resinous.
