About Purple OG Kush
Purple OG Kush is a balanced hybrid with a healthy 18% THC average. The strain’s reputation for a strong high is likely related less to THC levels than to the way it makes you buzz and space out. The strain has a strong, balanced Kush flavor that comes with powerful sedation. Those looking for a strain that promotes focus should look elsewhere – Purple OG Kush is recommended only for late-night do-nothing get-togethers and bedtime. Don’t expect to get anything done once you start enjoying Purple OG Kush, unless your to-do list is a list of snacks that need destroying.
The strain’s lineage is not well-known, but likely a result of Purple Kush and OG Kush bred together for their Chemdawg and Afghani flavor profiles, respectively. We recommend growing Purple OG Kush when you have a bit of experience already, not coming right out of the gate with this one. Outdoors, the strain is ready for harvest at the end of October, flowering in about 8-9 weeks.
GROWERS TIP: The Purple OG Kush buds are incredibly dense. This makes support for the plant necessary as it gets nearer to its harvest phase. To maximize yields, growers should use ample trimming to their advantage, which is why some growing experience is recommended.
The Purple OG Kush aroma is sour and fresh, a combination of pine and earth, very Indica-heavy, and steeped in grape flavor. There are fuel flavors in there as well, mixing with the berry and pine.
This flavor comes with a feeling of relaxed sleepiness that makes Purple OG Kush a nighttime strain only. It already smells like the outdoors so going out onto a porch or yard is a great way to enjoy this piney, refreshing strain. Users love the taste, but they love its ability to relieve pain and insomnia even more. Stress, depression, and a loss of appetite are difficult to maintain with Purple OG Kush egging you on to relax, eat everything in the house, and crash on your couch.
Users with specific health issues can also use Purple OG Kush to their advantage. Its ability to even out your mood makes it useful for treating symptoms of manic depression (also called bipolar disorder), migraines, and women’s health issues, such as PMS-related cramping.
Being able to relieve inflammation while leveling out your mood makes Purple OG Kush a favorite strain in the American West, especially as more people get in on its royal, woodsy lineage.
