About Purple Frost
Purple Frost is an eye-catching, indica-leaning hybrid that was brought to life by Portland-based breeders Resin Snob when they crossed Obama Kush with staple hybrid Skunk #1. It resulted in a strain that carries a sweet, funky flavor profile that compliments a dynamic and creative high, with a multicolored flower to guarantee a full sensory experience. Purple Frost’s THC content has been measured at a wide range between 9% and 25%.
The first thing to stand out about Purple Frost’s flowers is their size. These jumbo buds hold together in tapered, elongated formations which look somewhat like bullets, and have an indica influenced internal composition. But the real attraction is the leaves. They show off a dappled array of dark green, deep purple and indigo colors, with the latter hues caused by the high concentrations of the pigment anthocyanin. Finally, frosty white trichomes account for their psychoactivity and makes it hard to break up by hand.
Purple Frost gives off a dank, earthy scent that may bring to mind the forest floor covered with rotting leaves or damp soil. But take a closer inspection and you might find this funkiness is balanced out by fruity notes of berry, that when broken apart it may give off some surprisingly sharp fumes of diesel. If sparked it has a thick but nevertheless smooth and palatable smoke, that tastes fruity and somewhat sour on the exhale.
As you might expect of a indica-leaning strain, Purple Frost’s high can take quite a while to show up, some 10 or 15 minutes later. Then you are immersed in a suddenly buzzy mindset, which in social situations, can enable lively conversation and feelings of camaraderie. This cerebral surge may help you to achieve productivity on complicated, detailed tasks. Given the right set and setting, their mental effects may even take the form of trippy sensory distortion, which can be magnified through a moody playlist or engaging film.
Further in, you’ll start to feel a change to a more physically-focused high. If you’re active or out and about you may find yourself subsumed by a weighty feeling in the limbs, while those lounging at home, may feel like themselves starting to sink into the furniture. Because of the slow decline in energy levels, Purple Frost is recommended for late afternoon through early evening, where it’s best suited for passive activities like playing board games or binge watching.
Though recreationally enjoyable, Purple Frost’s multidimensional high can also be useful to medical cannabis patients. For your body, Purple Frost can assist in dulling chronic aches and pains, and the anti-inflammatory properties may take the sting out of daily discomforts. In the right conditions, the eventual sedative effects may also be a handy remedy for insomnia. Given that it doesn’t often result in intense, recursive patterns of thinking, Purple Frost can be a good option if you’re prone to paranoia or have a low THC tolerance.
Sadly, Resin Snob has not made seeds available online, but if you happen to get a clone or some rogue seeds in with your nug, you can grow it both indoors or out. To have outdoor success keep plants in a humid climate with temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees. Want to make the most of the signature blue and purple hues? Expose your crops to nighttime temperatures between 55 and 65 degrees, just before flowering begins - for indoor growers, flowering happens around the 8 to 9 week mark.
A flavorful, luxurious smoke, Purple Frost is tailor-made for sharing with others. The rich aroma and vivid flowers make for an excellent conversation piece.
