Recommended Time of Use


Mendocino Purps, or Mendo Purps, is an Indica strain that won High Times Cannabis Cups in 2007 and 2009.

Inexperienced users, or those with a lower tolerance, should be aware of this strain's ability to induce powerful drowsiness and laziness. It is recommended that users keep food close at hand as the "couch-lock" effect may be stronger than the 'munchies' effect. Some might also find that this strain may cause 'the giggles.' Negative effects include dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, headaches, and some paranoia when high doses are consumed.

Like most pure Indica strains, it should be used in the afternoon or at night as users will become drowsy. For this reason, it is a good medication for insomnia. Mendocino Purps' mood elevating effects make it effective medicine for relief from stress, anxiety, and depression. The numbing body high gently eases away most chronic aches and pains, particularly those that are accompanied by movement disorders such as muscle spasms. It is also used to calm nausea and increase appetite.

Mendocino Purps is a back-cross of a pure landrace USA Indica. As its name suggests, this clone-only strain came from Mendocino County in California. While the original Mendocino Purps is rare, BC Bud Depot received one in 2004 and inbred it to create seeds of the strain they called The Purps. It is often confused with the clone-only strain and the hybrid from TH Seeds called Da Purps.

This strain generally features THC content in the teens, which can climb as high as 20%. Its cannabinoid levels generally fall between 0.20% and 0.30% but can be higher.
