Mendocino x Purple Kush by Guru Seeds is a multi-awarded indica-dominant strain with a heavy narcotic effect. Notorious for its high THC content, it is perfect for a lazy Sunday with friends. Its flowering time is about ten weeks indoors.
Heritage & Genetics: As the name Mendocino suggests, this indica-dominant (60/40) hybrid comes from the Emerald Triangle, the largest cannabis-producing region in the US. This cross between Mendocino Purple and Purple Kush has a THC content of about 15-20%. This strain is now available under our household brand Guru Seeds.
Flavor & Aroma: The mixture between the Kush and Mendo Purps have given this strain an overpowering earthy aroma with notable sweet twists. Taste is spicy and sour. Generally, expect a milder, more pleasant taste from the purple buds compared to the “greener” ones.
Effect: Although Mendocino x Purple Kush is a pretty even hybrid, its potent sedative effects are a dead giveaway of an indica-dominant strain. Cancel your plans, stream a movie and order some food before vaping or smoking this strain, as the couch-lock is strong with this one.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: This prized hybrid comes only in feminized seeds and it’s not hard to grow indoors. Generally, you can grow this strain equally well in soil and hydroponics, while the plant responds very well to SOG training. On average, the plant will be ready for harvest in 10-11 weeks and will grow to be medium sized (pot size will play a role in this). Mendocino x Purple Kush will give you a medium yield of gorgeous thick purplish buds, covered in delicious resin.
