Purple Kush strain is a unique indica strain which has distinct characteristics which are found in no other strain. One of the main features of this indica strain is its pleasant colors and incredible taste. It was first produced by breeders in an Oakland neighborhood named Oaksterdam, which is considered as one of the oldest legal, medical marijuana areas of the United States. Purple Kush is produced by crossing two South-Central Asian indica landraces including Hindu Kush, from the mountainous Pakistan-Afghanistan border, and a purple-tinged variety of Afghani. This strain is 100% indica, and it offers a sluggish and relaxing high. Platinum Purple Kush has won several awards due to its high THC composition ranging from 17% to as much as 27%.
Purple Kush Experience
Purple Kush offers a long lasting high when smoked. Consumers should expect a slow, upper body relaxation that moves from one part of the body to another. When you light up this strain, you will feel a blissful, euphoric fog that eases away all forms of mental strife and stress.
While this strain offers a deep and significant sense of relaxation, it’s not recommended for novice users. This strain is said to be among the powerful strains in the planet due to its high potency and high narcotic-like effects.

Traits of Purple Kush
Similar to other indica hybrids, Platinum Purple Kush starts by igniting a head high that gradually condenses into a slow feeling of calmness. This strain will put your body into full relaxation mood. Since mental traits usually accompany these effects, they tend to bring a more psychedelic, distorted nature in contrast to a cerebral one. Cannabis consumers may experience the sedating effects of movies or the environment. Instead of facilitating hyperactive thoughts and enhancing focus, this strain will instead make you feel a sense of self contentedness. It usually makes users have a sense of happiness accompanied by a heavy body high that comes from smoking high amounts of Purple Kush.
Purple Kush also has high medicinal properties due to its high sedative effects. People with conditions such as anxiety and depression can use this strain to gain relief. It can also be an effective treatment for different types of chronic pain, aches, and nerve-related pain due to cancer or fibromyalgia. This strain can also result in sleep when consumed in large amounts.
Purple Kush plants are always short and bushy like other indica strains. Platinum Purple Kush seeds lead to maximum yield when grown indoors. However, it can also do well outdoors if the right methods are followed. In order to make your plant purple, you may want to activate the plants in cold temperatures to activate the anthocyanins. Nevertheless, it’s advisable to expose the plant to cold (not freezing) temperatures, especially during flowering periods, to ensure high yields. The flowering period for purple Kush plants is usually eight weeks when grown indoors.
