About Purple Barney
Purple Barney, potentially named for the big lovable dinosaur himself, is a phenotype of Purple Urkle, which should right away be exciting for Californians who have developed a taste for Urkle’s skunk (and pain relief). The strain leans slightly on the Indica side (60/40), looks beautiful, and tastes fruity-amazing. You won’t find yourself becoming sedated on this strain, but you can still expect a host of pain-relieving, calming benefits, exactly what you’d predict from Purple Urkle’s child.
Purple Barney’s buds (also called “Barney Purple” sometimes) are tiny, dense, round, and dark. The combination of olive leaves and deep purple tones provides a great backdrop for the plentiful orange hairs and lavender crystals. Despite being named for a tall dinosaur, Purple Barney is a short plant, no more than 120 cm tall.
GROWERS TIP: As the plant gets ready for harvest, the buds become pungent and skunky. Since the ratio between the leaves and buds remains low, Purple Barney is incredibly easy to harvest, even for beginners.
The delicious flavor is spicy, sweet, and fruity, with an aroma that alternates between being skunky and sweet. The breeder remains unknown, but whoever they are, they made a strain that is as much an herbal fruit cocktail as a treatment for major pain conditions (more on that in a bit). The THC level averages around 17%, making it pleasant for experienced users as well as newcomers.
On Purple Barney, users report feeling incredibly heavy, the high surging throughout their body in cerebral, calming pulses. The strain locks you to your couch without sedating you, giving you a feeling of sleepy confidence. This makes the strain perfect for treating pain, anxiety, nausea, and insomnia. The delicious grape-herbal flavor can also jumpstart stubborn appetites.
For people suffering from stress or anxiety, this makes Purple Barney a great mid-late afternoon snack. For people who are ill from cancer or their cancer treatment, which also comes with a loss of appetite, the hunger-inducing influence of the Purple Barney strain can really come in handy.
Those who suffer from negative thoughts or a mood that won’t quit giving you grief, Purple Barney can provide a calming presence. The light skunk aroma mixed with spicy grape and herbs, sending you a little sweetness along with your pain relief, has made the strain almost as popular as its infamous parent.
