Even though the buds do not look extraordinary, they are beautiful to say the least. The strain produces dense nuggets, light green in color with orange hairs seeping through the surface. As for the taste and aroma, it outdoes any other indica dominant strain you may have medicated with before. The strain has been used on several occasions to treat cancer patients. UW Purple has done wonders for such individuals and is often considered to be the best medical strains available in the market.
