General Information

Type:  Indica

Genetics:  Believed to be a pure landrace Pakistani/Afghani variety

Geographic Origin:  Afghanistan/Pakistan

Seed Company/Clone: Clone-only

Description: An exceedingly short, squat plant that seems to turn purple at any time of the year.  Fat leaves and small stature with the dark coloration characteristic of the true Afghani/Pakistani landrace varieties.


Story: Not much is known about this particular plant except that it likely came out of Afghanistan/Pakistan during the 80′s when the country was in upheaval, and was likely brought to the USA by American military personnel.  It is thought by many to be the mother plant to the modern Purple lines such as Grape Ape, Granddaddy Purple, Purple Urkle, etc. This cut is also thought to be the same cut as the Pacific Northwest’s “Ultraviolet”.


Growing Information

Flowering Time: 65 days

Preferred Growing Medium: Purple Indica is a tiny, squat plant that will need additional vegetative growth time to get weight.  It also requires a lot of pruning close to the stem to prevent bud rot.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Perfumed grape incense-like smell.

Flavor: Nearly identical to the smell, it’s a perfumed grape-heavy smell that brings to mind incense and flowers.

Effects: Relaxing and semi-narcotic like most Purple strains, it’s clear that this one is 100% Indica.  Good for pain relief, relaxation, anti-anxiety, and sleep aid.
