Purple Kush
Rated 4 out of 1-5 (198 reviews)
Variety:
Indica
THC Level:
medium-high
Flowering Time:
7 weeks
Yield:
100 grams per plant

This is one of the premier strains in California and is an elite clone (cut only).  The SR-71 alternate name comes from its home dispensary in Oakland by that name.  The smoke is smooth and the buzz is deep, but not debilitating.  The plant is a short, pure Indica strain that grows to about 2.5 feet indoors and this strain is rarely grown with any method other than hydroponics.

When the Purple Kush begins to ripen, hints of purple appear on leaves and buds and a sweet almost pine scent emerges.  The plant will flower for about 7 weeks.  It is most often prescribed for chronic pain, inflammation, and multiple sclerosis.

    this is a strain we grow in our budcycle box. It does very well under these conditions.(plants are in 16-20 oz. party cups)The soil is Fox Farm ocean blend mix.No hydro here LOL Tends to get a bit wider than the silver haze, but it is a pure Indica so that is expected. It must be dried and cured well or it will mold in our coastal area.The high is long lasting and makes it possible for me to sleep the whole night through. I have a lot of leg, hip and back pain. It really does a nice job of relaxing the muscles

    I am a HUGE fan of Purple Kush. Besides looking just incredible in the bowl, it has a wonderful flavor and high unique to its strain. Still more green than purple, the nugs are dusted thoroughly in trichrome, with light orange hairs sprouting liberally, and the occasional deep purple leaf shooting out. Upon breaking it up a bit, more hints of purple are revealed and the sticky sweet scent left on your fingers is just the prelude to a perfect dose of kush. Fruitier on exhale than most other kush strains, Purple Kush leaves me perfectly inebriated – still highly functional, or functionally high! I never pass up this strain when I cross its path, definitely in my top 5 (so far!). Try it I think you’ll like it!

    Ah, Purple Kush. The king of couchlocks. Every time I smoke this I literally want to melt into my bed and remain immobile for a few hours. Gotta love those wicked indicas.

    Nice strain, very good grape taste that just makes you think purple. Not always purple in color but always in taste, and lime green in color. When its good, it’s great.

    Smooth yet hashy smoke. Creeps a bit, starts in your head then finishes in your body leaving you pretty spacey throughout. Pretty good for relaxing and watching a movie (you can actually pay attention with this stuff). Not as strong as some other pure indicas, but it can leave you pretty burned out. The smell is amazing, and won’t always be purple at all – a light lime green in fact. Real good for a long nap, stress, and the munchies.

    Mellow high not too overpowering. Not the most productive high but doesn’t ruin your day. Preferred to smoke from papers.

    Purple Kush is one purple strain that stands out on its own. Straight solid purple, dense buds with plenty of resin! Super sweet skunk smell. Stong grape taste! Purple Kush is a great strain for medicating. Good for relaxing, pain relief, and loss of sleep. Heavy Indica head and body high.

    This strain was particularly heavy for me but it helped aid me with my inability to fall asleep. It tasted fruity and was a really clean smoke. My only downside was that it was super smelly which made storing it difficult.

    I like using this strain before exercising, the body high you get is phenomenal and makes working out much more bearable. It’s hard to push through the laziness this strain gives you, but it’s really worth it.

    This is top shelf stuff, or pretty damn near there. Has plenty of crystals and contains a good amount of purple. Has a very sweet smell to it, though the taste isn’t so much.

    I’ve had a few ounces of this over the last year, so I am quite familiar. PK has a high THC content (15-28%) and is a cross between Purple Afghani and Hindu Kush. The most recent strain I got was very high quality and upon smoking a tiny amount (to sample for the first time) I almost felt a happy, uplifting, euphoric type high (on a small scale) similar to a sativa.

    Don’t get me wrong though this is strong Indica, it can be sedating, lead to couchlock and the munchies. I found my limbs would feel very tingly along with the back on my neck and it felt at times like my whole body was getting a massage, so this good to pain and muscle aches.

    Overall it’s great medicine, very chilled, I would recommend using it later in the evening as if you have to do something, you won’t want to leave you place if you get too baked. The high tends to be a happy high with sativa-esc (trippy) overtones. Being primarily an indica you don’t get a strong energetic feeling from it, but certainly has uplifting characteristics.

    This one is a creeper too. Taking a hit you might have to wait 30 seconds to a few minutes to feel the full effects.

    Overall well worth it, certainly a top 10 strain.
