Purple Kush is a pure indica strain resulting from a cross between Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani varieties. Recognized by High Times magazine as one of the world’s most potent strains, it has an average THC content of 22%. The high from Purple Kush is described as immediately euphoric and uplifting, providing pain relief and introspection. This is followed by a warm, numbing sensation that spreads throughout the body, leading to deep relaxation and sedation. As the effects wane, users are lulled into a deep, restorative sleep. Because of these strong effects, it’s recommended for treating insomnia, chronic pain, nerve damage, and muscle spasms. The strain has a distinctive earthy and sweet grape aroma, with a flavor reminiscent of red wine. Its buds are bright neon green with purple and orange hues, covered in white trichomes and sticky resin.
