|Lineage:||Purple Afghani x Hindu Kush|
Purple Kush is a 100% indica strain of cannabis that emerged from the Oakland area of California. A cross between Purple Afghani and Hindu Kush, plants typically flower in 8 weeks indoors and out, making this a versatile choice for growers. Growing wide instead of tall, the dark green buds remain dense and do not grow overly large. Purple Kush is known for its long lasting high that starts strong as well as its berry aroma.
In his review for High Times, Danny Danko wrote: "California has gone 'purple crazy,' with hundreds of different varieties available in various shades from violet to deep blue. Combining the sweet flavor of the Purps with the lemony power of OG Kush, Purple Kush is a strain that exemplifies the best of both worlds. Strong bag appeal plus increased potency make the PK a perfect hybrid for growers interested in a product that sells itself. Its short, squat stature and heavy harvests don’t hurt either. This clone-only, almost pure indica strain has its origins in the Pacific Northwest, but has become increasingly popular and available elsewhere as the rest of the country (and the world) quickly catches up to the aesthetically and spiritually pleasing qualities of these grape-flavored, violet-colored nuggets. Medical patients in particular will appreciate the Purple Kush’s deep body stone, which is helpful in treating chronic pain and depression."
