What is it about Deep Purple marijuana that makes this long-standing strain one of the most popular on the market? Could it be it’s mouth-wateringly juicy flavor, the gorgeous colors of the flowers, or both? Whatever it is, Deep Purple is a mellow indica that hits all the right notes in every category and should be on your list of cannabis strains to try, if you haven’t already.
Boasting anywhere between 14 and 19% THC, the euphoria-inducing quality of Deep Purple has never been in question. A smooth, rich smoke, it is deeply sedative, an ideal strain for evening or night time, with friends or on your own. Ridiculously cerebral, the high will creep up slowly, in sensations described as disorienting, often accompanied by a trippy sativa hit that may take you from literally “seeing things” to an easygoing relaxation over the course of its fragrant experience. The heaviness of its indica effects are known to ease aches and pains, and it has potent anti-inflammatory properties as well, marking it as an excellent naturopathic alternative. Though relatively cerebral, the lack of “buzz” has made Deep Purple a popular alternative for those hoping to benefit from the therapeutic qualities of cannabis without the panic associated with a low tolerance for THC.
The aroma profile of Deep Purple cannabis is about as far from the typical aroma of marijuana as you can get. The terpenes here combine for a scent that is reminiscent of grapes and sweet plums, with grounding, earthy notes. The same can be said of the smoke, and the flavor is not far behind, with distinct tobacco-like notes.
Growing Deep Purple marijuana seeds is as exciting as experiencing the effects. The large and tapered buds are usually bright green with neon orange pistils. Some versions boast purple leaves, ranging anywhere from delicate lavender to deep violet. Imagine these colors blooming in your yard! Growers have been able to encourage these shades by carefully controlling the temperatures the plant is exposed to.
Indoors or out, gardeners of every experience level should have success planting Deep Purple marijuana seeds, provided they offer a semi-humid climate and pay close attention to pruning its bushy structure. Often, Deep Purple plants need to be “topped” to keep broad fan leaves from blocking light and air that needs to reach low-growing nodes. Given 7-8 weeks of flowering, Deep Purple will reward you with a moderate yield of truly enviable cannabis.
