- Dry Eyes
The Purple Thai strain of marijuana is a Sativa-dominant hybrid resulting from crossing Chocolate Thai and Mexican Highland Oaxacan Gold. It was bred by growers in Oregon and is sometimes referred to as “Oregon Purple Thai” or “OPT.” The strain gets its name from its appearance, as the leaves and buds are tinged with purple hues.
Purple Thai is known for its uplifting and energizing effects, which make it a good choice for daytime use. The strain can also help treat depression, anxiety, and chronic pain. Purple Thai has a sweet and earthy flavor with hints of chocolate.
The adverse effects of Purple Thai are typically mild and include dry mouth, dry eyes, and dizziness. However, some users may experience paranoia or anxiety if they consume too much of the strain. The THC content ranges from 17-22%.
Growing can take place indoors and outdoors, though the latter is preferred. The plants can grow quite tall, so growers may need to prune them to control their size. Purple Thai typically flowers within 10 weeks. It is best to plant this strain in early spring or late fall.
