The Purple Kush is a strain from California that has come about from a crossing of the Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani. The smell is subtle and earthy, with sweet overtones typical of a pure indica strain like the Hindu Kush. A blissful, long-lasting euphoria blankets the mind while physical relaxation rids the body of pain, sleeplessness, and stress.
Some cerebral effects are felt as well, though the high is mainly physical and sedating. Users report feelings of physical relaxation, as well as feelings of euphoria. This strain has a medium-high to heady potency and is known for having a long-lasting high, with some users reporting 4 to 6 hours of high.
Purple Kush helps medical marijuana patients who take the strain for pain relief may find that their pain is relieved to the point that all they need is a slight dose of marijuana to keep them from having a headache. For patients who have epilepsy, this strain may be effective in controlling seizures.
With THC content between 15% and 20%, this is a potent strain. The strain’s adverse effects include dry mouth, dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety. Like most Kush strains, Purple Kush has an earthy smell and a taste that is often described as skunky or musky; the aftertaste is sweet and somewhat tangy.
Purple Kush plants grow wide rather than tall, and they can be grown both indoors and outdoors, with the flowering period being between 50 and 70 days. This strain grows best in moderate temperatures. Growing Purple Kush seeds is a simple process, requiring just a medium-sized pot, good soil, and a grow light.
