👾 Top Purple Indica Strains

 

This top of purple varieties of the year 2022 and 2023 has to start with the indica genetics, since they are the ones that contribute the most to individuals, since in nature there are more purple indica strains than sativas.

In the USA it can be found in most dispensaries on the west coast, and among its great achievements it should be noted that today it is part of the genetics of such famous hybrids as Girl Scout Cookies or Purple Punch, among many others.

🎯 Top purple sativa strains

 

There are purple varieties that are ideal for outdoor cultivation because due to their sativa genetics they grow too large for indoor cultivation. Landraces sporting purple tones have emerged in nature both in Asia and in America and even in Africa, in Nepal, Mexico, Thailand or Angola to name just a few examples, and from them some of the best colorful sativas in the world have been developed the story, like the ones you can see below.

 

Purple Haze

When this strain appeared on the scene it caused such a revolution that it was paid up to 10 times more expensive than most varieties of the moment, and the seeds were sold for 5 dollars in the late 1970s. It emerged from the cross between sativa varieties from Mexico, Colombia, India and Thailand, its performance is not very high but it makes up for it with an effect that is unparalleled, one of the so-called “roofless” ones because it does not stop rising and rising no matter how much it is consumed, without relaxing descent.

It is a hybrid with clear sativa dominance, created from the cross between Blueberry and Super Silver Haze, and among its best virtues we must highlight its impressive production of flowers and its exaggerated potency, which can be too high for consumers with little tolerance. The flavor can be considered a mixture of its parents, very intense and long lasting.

✨ Top purple autoflowering strains

 

If you are looking for varieties with purple flowers and leaves but with automatic flowering, don’t worry because they also exist. These seeds can be grown in all environments because they adapt to all types of climates and environmental conditions, they can even be harvested in winter as long as temperatures do not drop below 10º C. Luckily today we have a large number of commercial strains available with these features, but if you want some recommendation I advise you to try any of these 3 :

 

Auto Purple

If you don’t have much experience growing cannabis but want to harvest purple buds, these seeds are for you. They are plants that are very resistant to cold, so much so that they can be grown outdoors out of season, and they can withstand all kinds of hazing without slowing down their development. In indoor cultivation they are ideal for small spaces, because they do not usually stretch too much and have a rather columnar structure. Its flavor is sweet, caramelized, and with a touch of liquorice that lasts in the mouth for hours.

Buddha Purple Kush Auto

The Buddha Seeds seed bank wanted to stabilize an autoflowering variety that showed purple colors in all specimens, and for this they took the legendary Pakistan Chitral Kush as the central pillar of the project. After a lot of breeding work, he succeeded, and the result was so good that the Sweet Seeds bank chose this variety to develop all its colorful automatic flowering seeds. They are very compact and fast plants, with medium production and a lot of resin.

Dark Purple Auto

This variety was created by the Delicious Seeds bank as a tribute to the rapper Jota Mayúscula, who unfortunately left us in 2020 at only 48 years old. It could be considered as the autoflowering version of Purple Kush, because it was developed by crossing this plant with a ruderalis variety. All the people who think that autos don’t have much flavor should give this strain a try, because it leaves you with a fruity aftertaste that you won’t believe.

✅ Frequent questions

 

What is the purplest marijuana strain?

Although this is somewhat difficult to quantify, we believe that the most intensely purple cannabis strain today is Grandaddy Purple. There are other genetics that get very dark, so much so that they can end up practically black, but Grandaddy Purple maintains the deep purple hue from the beginning of flowering until harvest. The most curious thing is that once the weed is dry and cured it still has those striking colors, something that does not happen with other colorful marijuana.

 

What makes yerba purple?

Those responsible for the purple color of marijuana are water-soluble pigments called anthocyanins. It could be said that normally these pigments are secondary since most of them are green, but in some circumstances they become the majority pigment and for that reason purple leaves or buds can be seen. Many plants change color from green to purple when temperatures drop below a certain temperature, in this case they increase the production of anthocyanins as a defensive system to better withstand the cold. In other cases, the purple color has more to do with the genetics of the plants, since it is a trait that can be transmitted from generation to generation. There are people who claim that organic cultivation enhances the production of anthocyanins, but this has not been proven to date, although it may be related to another theory that says that cannabis plants with a slight lack of nitrogen have a greater facility for acquiring purple hues.

 

Is purple marijuana better

It does not have to be better, the color is just one more feature and in principle it only affects the aesthetic part of the plant. It is possible that purple marijuana strains are better for growing in cold climates due to their greater resistance, but this has not been proven. What does seem quite clear is that in the varieties where green and purple specimens come out, normally the green is more powerful and the purple has a sweeter flavor, but this does not mean that the colorful weed is less powerful than the normal one in general, since there is also purple cannabis with a devastating effect like the famous Purple Punch.
