Purps, also known as “The Purps” or “Mendocino Purps,” is a slightly indica dominant hybrid (60% indica/40% sativa) strain with unknown parentage due to a high level of breeder secrecy regarding it. Despite this fact, Purps has a fantastic reputation among cannabis users across the country and has even been named as the High Times’ Strain of the Year in 2007. Like the name suggests, Purps buds have a surprisingly vibrant purple coloration to them, with dark long and airy pepper-shaped nugs and a spattering of dark amber hairs. Each nug is dusted with lavender colored crystal trichomes that add to the overall purple color. Purps has a sweet fruity flavor of berries and grapes with just a touch of spicy strawberry and earth. The aroma is very spicy and earthy with a grapey overtone that’s accented beautifully by berries and strawberries as the nugs are broken apart and burned. If you like the flavor, you’ll love the high. The Purps high is very relaxed and uplifted in nature with a sense of focus and motivation that quickly fades into deep introspection and calm. As the high builds and builds, you’ll become more and more talkative, leaving you incredibly giggly and social, laughing at everything that comes your way. Even with this giggly nature, you’ll still feel an overall sense of bliss and well-being. Because of these effects, Purps says to be the perfect bud for treating conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, chronic stress or anxiety, and depression.
