I'm a California native, so for a very long time, this strain was most readily available, and maybe even still now (I'm no longer in Cali.); in the streets and in the dispensaries. I came across Purple Kush while with one of my brothas; he loves the stuff, and it couch-lock, zonk, knocked my socks off! Way too heavy for me. I believe I was traumatized; since then, Indicas have truly been a no-go for me. I simply do not benefit from anything that leaves me that stuck, literally. I only gave it three stars because of just how powerful it is!
THC: 22%Purple Kush is a 100% pure indica strain created as a potent cross between the insanely popular Hindu Kush X Purple Afghani strains. This dank bud was named one of the Top 10 Most Powerful Strains in the World by High Times magazine and boasts a THC level that ranges from 22% on average. Users describe the Purple Kush high as having an immediately uplifting euphoric head high that leaves you completely pain-free and slightly introspective. This is accompanied by a warming numbing body high that starts in the head and spreads throughout the body, leaving you completely relaxed and sedated. Upon the come down, you'll be eased into a deep and powerful pain-free sleep that lasts hours on end. Due to these potent effects, Purple Kush is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, nerve damage, and muscle spasms. Purple Kush has an iconic smell of earthy sweet grapes and a taste of earthy red wine. These buds have small furry bright neon green nugs with rich purple and fiery orange hairs and dark purple undertones. These nugs are frosty with fine white trichomes and sticky with sweet resin.

This was the first "Purple" cannabis I ever purchased... Ironically I had read it was not always very purple in color and indeed I almost saw none at all. Not a big deal, the whole "purple" thing seems like a lame gimmick anyways, but I had heard good things about this strain so I gave it a try. The buds were leafy AF, unfortunately I don't remember which cultivator it was... But since there's ONLY 3 in the freaking state (RIDICULOUS!!) so you can probably guess if you are here in Arkansas. The taste was pretty good, especially if you like the flavor of sweet red wine. The potency was just over 21% which was good enough, but I couldn't get over all the dang leaf. I'm sure if I had tried this legend in Denver or Amsterdam it would have been a hell of a lot better.
I often say to my fellow tokers, "You can't go wrong with a kush." This strain is no exception. Excellent pain relief and sedative qualities. Taste great and smells very good.
This is some of the STRONGEST SHIT I EVERED SMOKED. On a 1 to 10 , this shit is a 11.
I just purchased the Select Elite vape cartridge. It has 87.9% THC. So I've suffered from insomnia for several years. To the extent where I've used benzodiazepines to help get to sleep. After taking the prescription for almost two months I ran out. I got this maybe 4 days after not having my sleep medicine. I did smoke other strains along with my meds though. So I'm thinking this isn't gonna make much difference. I took one puff off the vape pen coughed a little then quite literally passed out on the couch. Got up and slept through the night in bed. I felt slightly groggy getting up this morning but overall it was extremely pleasant. The pain I have daily in my foot with bone spurs started to dissipate. I will vote my favorite strain thus far.
As a 27 year smoker i have to say this one of the best indicas that i've tried next to afghani.does everything that good indica does,perfect before bedtime or at the end of a stressful day at work
Most psychedelic strain I've ever used. It's actually pretty stimulating to me, doesn't knock me out at all. Good stuff.
Haven't had it for 20 years but how could I ever forget smoking this wonderful, amazing, superlative weed!!! I can say completely without reservation that this is my favorite strain EVER!! If you don't see the color of medium to deep purple all over the buds, it's not Purple Kush. Even tightly wrapped up in bags, the PK will fill the room with its distinctive, delectable aroma within seconds. The high is the mellowest I've ever experienced bar none. Purple Kush will never make you paranoid-- just really chill, mellow and sleepy. Wish I could get some right now but no luck there, dammit! I still remember an experience 20 years ago, in Portland, Oregon-- I walked into a Reed College dorm room with a quarter pound of Purple Kush in my backpack. Within 30 seconds of my entrance, one of the young ladies living in that quad exclaimed out loud: "I smell Purple Kush!"-- yes, she knew right then and there exactly what strain i was carrying that night. Before I left that room that night, that Purple Kush just vanished! If you like mellow, chill weed, this is the BEST!!
Great strain. Super smooth. Great for insomnia. So smooth like a big ol jet airliner coming in for a landing. Great Indica. I also judge a strain on how I feel when I wake up in the morning. I always feel positive and ready to go with this strain. Totally recommend.🌺
I got purple kush from TJs farms. Definitely on the top 3 of favorite farms with perfectly trimmed plump nuggets of beauty and aroma. I am surprised with the basic building blocks of these two parents create such a hard hitting and beautiful looking flower. Best indica I have smoked lately and this one that is godlike in quality sure to puts me to sleep which not a lot of cultivars can do.
