Purple Kush is a cross between Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani and is one of the most common spoken-about strains in the last 20 years. Purple Kush is one of those sedating strains that people love. IT gives users a sense of relaxation and ambiance that is unmatched.
Many people ask “Is Purple Kush actually purple?”. The truthful answer is sometimes! While the strain lineage may give it hues of purple and pink in the bud itself, this factor is determined by how much nitrogen was absorbed and what the acidity level of the plant’s environment during its growth is like. Colours in Cannabis can be produced due to these factors and other conditions like temperature, air, exposure to different UV rays, etc. To debunk the popular urban myth, the colour of purpleness does not mean that it is necessarily a quality product or that it will get you “higher”.
Purple Kush is a classical strain best smoked in joints and blunts in accordance with California street culture. While we do not recommend it, it is often paired in hip hop culture with “Purple Drank”, a beverage mixture of promethazine, codeine, sprite, and a jolly rancher.
Juicy J’s song “Purple Kush” covers its relationship to hip hop culture with Gorilla Zoes lyrics “I got purple in my cup purple in my blunt”
At Shivaa’s Rose, we have occasionally seen some quality, Purple Kush, on the market. Having good, solid, quality strain can be a treat. We recommend pairing a purple Kush dried flower in a grape Kush herbal wrap for an optimal blunt!
