Purple Kush Medical Marijuana Strain Review


Grade:  B+

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

Price: $50/8th

Appearance:  (8/10) Deep and nearly solid purple with occasional dark green patches.  We liked the color and the almost foxtail look of the bud — the trich heads were average, with maybe 15% ambers.

Aroma:  (8/10) Very interesting blend of earthy/hashy smells, that dark fruity purple, and a nice bit of sharpness on the finish.

Taste:  (7/10) Very purple, especially on the initial attack, with some perfume/incense-like qualities at the finish and aftertaste.

Effects:  Nice body high, warm and buzzy yet relaxed-feeling (not a speedy buzz), felt it behind the eyes a little bit, on the tired eyes side of the spectrum.  Kind of a creeper, making me want to just close the eyes and chill out.  Definitely an Indica dominant experience, good body relaxation but the overt body high has calmed down an hour in.  It was worrisome that the eyes being all red/slanty, but they just felt that way…  Definitely on the slow/relaxed side, just kinda want to sit and listen to music.  Could weirdly still feel some of the eyes high a full 3.5 hours after smoking finally went away around 4 hours.

Duration:  Long, 2.5 – 3 hours.

Medicinal Traits: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)  Relaxation, sleep aid, positivity, appetite stimulation.

Overall:  We’re not sure what the deal with the super-long eyes high duration is, but it’s definitely present.  I liked the high from this one overall, though it was a bit of a one-trick pony in that it was a very standard Indica type of buzz, with a warm pleasant body high, low/tired-feeling eyes, and the urge to sit quietly with those eyes closed or go to sleep.
