Purple Indica

Written by KindReviews on October 18th, 2010. Posted in Anxiety, Body Relaxation, Cancer, Indica, Insomnia, Mood, Muscular, Pain, Pains, Strains



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.


White Rhino

Written by KindReviews on September 25th, 2010. Posted in Anxiety, Body Relaxation, Cancer, Indica-Dominant Hybrid, Insomnia, Muscular, Pain, Strains


General Information

Type:  Indica-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  White Widow x Afghani

Geographic Origin:  South Indian, Brazilian, and Afghani — developed in Amsterdam, Netherlands

Seed Company/Clone: Greenhouse Seeds, Nirvana Seeds, and Mr. Nice Seedbank (available as “Medicine Man”)

Description: A cross of the award-winning White Widow with an Afghani to increase yields and add more of an Indica effects package, White Rhino is a stout and sturdy plant that hardly stretches at all in flowering.  The Afghani genetics improve heartiness and disease/mold resistance while also shortening the flowering time slightly.


Story: Coming off of the success of White Widow, Greenhouse seeds wanted to combine the notorious potency of that strain with something that yielded slightly more and was even easier to grow.  The results of that breeding project is White Rhino, a more Indica-dominant version of the Widow.  After the split of Greenhouse Seeds founder Shantibaba from the company, he re-packaged the strain as “Medicine Man”, retaining the original genetics.  Nirvana Seeds is known for creating versions of famous strains, and this is no exception — most people consider the Nirvana version of lesser quality and prefer the Mr. Nice version over any other.

Awards:  2nd Prize 1996 High Times Cannabis Cup – Bio (organic) Category

Growing Information

Flowering Time: 8-9 week, with 9 recommended to unlock the full yield/flavor potential.

Preferred Growing Medium: An easy-to-grow plant, it will do well in either soil or hydro, with soil bringing out the most flavor.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Not really known for its flavor or smell, it’s mostly a musky vegetal smell.

Flavor: Hashy and a bit harsh normally, with some phenotypes/plants producing a more lemon taste.

Effects: Very potent and resinous, White Rhino takes after its Afghani father, with a strong and sedative body effect that comes on quickly after first hitting the eyes.  Borderline narcotic, it’s best as a nighttime or lazy day medicine, as it can become difficult to do much of anything while in its grip.  Strong sedative qualities make this strain a good medical choice for mental and physical relaxation, anti-anxiety, sleep aid, and pain relief qualities.
