This sample looked very dark from a distance but didn’t have much actual purple on it until it was under a scope, where the purple-shaded leaves and calyxes were apparent. Wispy red pistils are the only bright colors visible, and the strain looked somewhat intimidating with its almost prehistoric look — its dense, sticky Indica qualities reminded us of a Deep Chunk or Black Domina. The trichomes were well-timed, with most being cloudy and maybe 20% amber.
Just a hint of the traditional “purple” smell here, this sample had a strong dose of musky vegetation, earthiness, and a strange grape candy sweetness that managed to cut through the other smells at times. As it was ground, the musky smell seemed to come out more, immediately bringing to mind an Afghanica variety to one reviewer. Though it wasn’t particularly pungent, it was thought of as a fairly nice smell by the staff.
Our staff tends to not be attracted to Purple strains as a rule, so this one was no surprise in that it received a lukewarm reception taste-wise. Its muskiness came out shooting in the taste, and it was the dominant taste for the duration. There was a fruity floral taste that came through on the early hits, but it disappeared and gave way to a more harsh and hashy, smokey finish that some reviewers struggled with. It was fairly harsh towards the end and bothered the throat a little bit, causing some coughing.
(We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) General relaxation, sleep aid, appetite stimulation, mild pain/tension relief.
This ”purple” was better than many in that it didn’t leave us feeling totally groggy and sleepy, but rather had a fairly clear-headed feeling for the majority of the effects. Some of the typical Purple taste combined with a strong Afghani influence made this an average medicine in terms of taste and smell, but the duration and effects mostly made up for it. We would recommend this strain for an indoors nighttime activity or work, as we were functional but not exactly full of energy — it would put you in an appropriate mental state for sleeping as well by the end of the effects if consumed in the evening.
