Purple Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From: Biocare

Grade: A-

Type: Indica-dominant hybrid, Hindu Kush x Purple Afghani

Price: $50/8th non-member, $40 member

Appearance: (8.25/10)  With a lovely blend of mottled green and purple colors, this strain is one that would catch the attention of most people when perusing the shop jars.  Beyond those colors, it had a thick covering of orange pistils as well as a strong trichome presence, making it look frosty from a distance.  While the trim could’ve been tighter, it had very good structure and showed no signs of stress during the grow — very good job by the grow team with this one.

Aroma: (8.75/10)  Probably the best Purple Kush any of us has smelled, it had a wonderfully pungent and sharp musky purple smell from a distance.  When disturbed, it had a floral bent to it with some sweet, almost bubblegum-like fruit smell — one reviewer who grinds samples also picked up on a very sharp “tire shop” rubber-like scent that came out post-grind.

Taste: (7.75/10)  Perfume, flowers, orange, and grapey flavors all came out of this one at one point or another.  The flowery elements seemed to be most present on the intake, while the sweetness came our on exhale.  The smoke was very expansive, making our eyes well up a bit and eliciting coughs.  The final ash was near-white though, indicating that it had seen a good flush.

Effects: Definitely an Indica-dominant experience — aside from a little kick of energy as the effects first hit, it was an overwhelmingly sedative type experience, with strong relaxation properties throughout the body and mind.  Almost in a stupor for 15-30 minutes post-medicating, it came with an unexpected dose of auditory and visual enhancement and a floaty body feeling.  It made us look very medicated as well, with cloudy, low eyes and an almost jaundiced complexion… definitely not a stealth med.  After the initial potency died off, it continued on the body relaxation path but picked up the mental energy as the effect began to dissipate.  Capable, relaxed, and calm in the 2nd half, we could be productive if needed but still felt more like sticking to the couch.

Duration: Medium-Long, about 2.5 hours

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Major body relaxation, mental relaxation, anti-anxiety, some ocular attention, minor pain relief, and sleep aid at higher doses.

Overall: Two of our three reviewers on this one said it was the best Purple Kush they’ve ever had — not an all-time favorite strain or anything, but basically the best example of this strain we’ve some across yet.  It was exceedingly well-grown and didn’t show any signs of stress — aside from the loose manicure, it was basically flawless.  The smell was fairly incredible and complex, while the taste held up its end of the bargain as well.  If you’re a patient desiring a fairly potent Indica with a slightly trippy side that will keep you feeling relaxed and calm, this is a great choice.  The high THC-V numbers seem to have played out with the initial effects… very interesting to now have these cannabinoids available in the analysis as well.
