Purple Mendocino, also known as “The Purps” or “Mendocino Purps,” is a slightly indica dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) strain created with unknown parentage, although it is a definite member of the beloved purple family. This tasty bud was named the Strain of the Year in 2007 by High Times and for good reason. With happy and relaxing effects that are surprisingly well balanced and wash away pains with ease, Purple Mendocino is a patient favorite across the country. The Purple Mendocino high hits you first with an almost immediate euphoric lift that leaves you feeling insanely happy with a sense of motivated energy and focus. As the high builds and builds, you’ll become super talkative and incredibly giggly, laughing at pretty much anything that anyone sends your way. In this state you’ll be completely relaxed n both mind and body, despite the sense of energy. These effects paired with its powerful 22% average THC level makes Purple Mendocino the perfect bud for treating conditions such as chronic stress or anxiety, insomnia, chronic pain, and depression. This bud has a super sweet caramel flavor with hints of fruity coffee and nutty pine accented by rich grape. The aroma has a grape overtone with touches of rich coffee and woody pine and an overtone of sweet pungency. Purple Mendocino buds have long airy dark green nugs with rich purple undertones, bright amber hairs, and a thick coating of lavender colored crystal trichomes.
