Purple Bud is an indica-dominant strain with a distinct deep purple hue. This strain produces large yields and is easy to grow, even for the least experienced grower.
Heritage & Genetics: Sensi Seeds combined an Afghani indica with Hindu Kush, a Skunk #1, Purple Kush and a Jamaican sativa to create a very well balanced indica (75%) with an average THC level of 18%.
Flavor & Aroma: Purple Bud has that typical Kush flavor reminiscent of pine forest soil. What sets it apart from its ancestors is a sweet, almost fruity undertone with a whiff of sandalwood.
Effect: Even though Purple Bud has a sativa component in its genetics that provides a little pick-me-up, its overall effect is very much like a pure indica. Expect a heavy body-stoned sensation that relaxes the body but tends to fog the mind.
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 strain is a very forgiving one to cultivate, especially indoors or in colder climates. It hardly needs any extra care and rewards your minimal efforts with thick, dense, purple buds, hence the name. Even the greenest newbie will harvest a high yield of almost lavender-like flowers, in under +/- 9 weeks. Keep in mind, however, that due to its sativa element, Purple Bud tends to grow slightly taller than most other indica phenotypes.
