Unveiling the Mystery: What Weed Strains are Purple and the Allure of Purple Weed
Table of Contents
Ah, the colour purple, reminiscent of a deep violet sunset and so much more appealing than that infuriating orange glow that Netflix emanates, cruelly announcing the end of your binge-watching. Now, if you transpose this royal shade to your beloved herb, you get the pièce de résistance of cannabis, the purple weed.
Ring the alarm bells, shout from the rooftops and let the townsfolk rush only to gaze at these extraordinary, oh-so-instagrammable buds! But what’s intriguing is not merely their aesthetic appeal (though we must confess, they do add a touch of glamour to proceedings), rather it’s the crowd’s growing affinity for them. Suddenly, everyone from your tattooed neighbour to your rock-listening grandma is joining the purple parade.
But before you start questioning the cosmic order of things, don’t. It’s just weed, gone purple. Well, sort of. Anyhoo, join us as we dive head-first into the mystique (and a tad scientific) world of purple cannabis. Hold on to your monocles, ladies and gents!
The Science Behind the Purple Hue
Ah, now we’re stepping into the realm of the great unknown. You’re likely thinking, “what mystical force tinges our beloved plant alien-esque purple?” Invasion of the Purple Body Snatchers? Perhaps it’s signalling its status as royals of the weed kingdom? Hold on to your zucchinis, because we’re delving deep into the science of pot pigmentation with this one!
Ready for your Biology 101 lessons to pay off? Say ‘hello’ to our dear friend Anthocyanin! No, it’s not a Sith lord’s name; it could be, mind you, but it’s not. This little pigment is the same one that makes your wine red and Michael Clifford’s hair every shade of rainbow! In simple weed terms, it’s the showstopper behind that gorgeous purple tinge!
Now, here’s where we have to appreciate Mother Nature’s contribution. Our buddy Anthocyanin gets a bit more dramatic in cooler temperatures and alkaline pH conditions. Yes, drama queen! But who doesn’t love a trifle bit of theatre? It’s like leaving a British granny in a chilly room with a box of knitting wool. You’re going to return to a sea of intricately knitted cozzies in various shades of the rainbow, but in this case, it’s glorious purple buds!
So, as you puff away and admire that royal hue, remember it’s not the plant having a mood swing; it’s the weather’s fault, coupled with some high school biology! It’s truly mind-boggling; or shall we say mind-boggling?
The Stars of the Purple Cannabis Community
As we delve into the heart of the purple weed world, I invite you to step into the dazzling world of the top purple strains that make up this colourful cannabis brigade. First, let’s doff our hats to Grandaddy Purple, the high-ranking aristocrat in this purple-hued league. Respected old chap ain’t just a shade of delicate lavender, but is revered for its sophisticated berry and grape aroma. Heard of the ‘royal bloodline’? This is it, folks!
Next stop on this purple journey is the enigmatic Purple Urkle. Now, if weed strains were crime novels, our friend Purple Urkle would best be described as the Agatha Christie mystery that keeps you guessing till the last puff. Origin unknown, but intrigue? Unlimited. One whiff and you’re left snagged on the grape and berry undercurrents, as it weaves a compelling narrative of its capabilities in every cloud of smoke.
Now, let’s set the stage aflame. Why? Because Purple Haze isn’t just an epic Jimi Hendrix track anymore! Yes, the strain’s origins might hark back to ancient Cambodian traditions, but its popularity is as modern as WiFi! Contemplating whether the effect is more cerebral or psychedelic, is like contemplating whether Hendrix was more of a singer or a guitarist. You see what I did there?
So people, let’s hear it for our purple superstars: Classy and evergreen, the enigma that keeps you guessing, and pure rock-n-roll soul! As Willy Wonka would say, “Welcome to the world of pure imagination – with a side of purps!”
Remember, good sirs and madams, purple might be a royal hue, but what lies beneath is what truly brings out the nobility in these strains. Oh, and a word to the green cannabis, “Purple just got cooler!”
Purple Weed vs Green Weed: Is there a difference?
And now we delve into the twilight zone, or rather, the debate which has had stoners contemplating their life choices at 2am. Do these tantalisingly-curated purple strains exhibit a distinct taste, or is it all just some unfathomably clever ruse by marketing boffins?
Now, I’m no Jamie Oliver, but I’ve been around the block enough times to know there’s not much of a difference in taste. Your purple kush isn’t magically morphing into grape flavour, no matter how ambitiously its name indicates. Just because it’s the colour of Barney doesn’t mean it tastes downright prehistoric!
You may also raise your eyebrow at proclamations that a violet aura lends the weed strain its supersized punch. Not to be the bearer of sobering news, but there’s absolutely zilch evidence supporting the notion that purple strains hit harder than their green counterparts. Indeed, the potency, my dear Watson, remains unaffected by the jazzy sheen.
However, do take these revelations with a pinch of salt or a puff of smoke if you will, because there’s no weed that can beat the one you find the grooviest! So, whether it’s green, purple, or rainbow-striped for all I care, all that matters is its effect! Do remember them for your next late-night banter-sesh showdown!
Growing Purple Weed: A Brief Window into Horticulture
Ah, the horticulture of it all! Growing purple weed may seem like a task befitting a horticultural Sherlock Holmes, but fear not, my dear Watsons, it’s elementary!
Now you might be questioning, “Is it harder to grow purple weed?”, and to that, I say – it depends. You see, some strains are innately predisposed to strut their purple hues, while others, not so much. So stick with the purple-inclined, and you’ll have a royally easier time cultivating that vibrant garden of yours.
“But can any strain become purple weed?” I hear you ask – why are we never satisfied with what we’ve got? Well, theoretically, yes. But it really comes down to pampering your plants with the ideal conditions to encourage their inner purple to shine. You must play matchmaker between the elements and your botanic beauties to help them unlock their violet potential.
Now presenting the pièce de résistance: tips on growing your own eye-catching purple buds! First and foremost, keep it cool, literally! Lowering the temperature during the night cycle helps stimulate anthocyanin production. Pay rapt attention to the essentials, such as proper nutrition and pH levels, for your blooms to flourish like nature’s finest fashion statement. And lastly, always keep an eye out for any botanical imposter syndrome; a fast-paced dance between red and blue lighting may result in wannabe-purple masqueraders.
So embark on your journey to create an enchanting technicolour dream garden of ganja, and may the buds be ever in your favour. Just remember the wise words of Violet Beauregarde from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: “I’m the world-record holder in chewing gum… and I hope my little blueberry of a bud here won’t overshadow me!”
Well, my fellow cannabis connoisseurs, we’ve ventured through a vivid and verdant world of violet vegetation. But before you’re lured in by the enchanting shade of these pretty purple pot plants, remember: not all that glitters is gold (or, in this case, purple).
While the aesthetics of that purple hue may be undeniably enticing, it’s crucial to remember that the colour of your weed doesn’t really matter (I know, colour us surprised). Sometimes, it’s merely a natural happening and doesn’t actually contribute much to your, erm, “glaucoma treatment”.
The allure of the purple bud is still pretty cool and nothing is stopping you from treating yourself to a ‘gram or two for the ‘gram. But don’t be leaf-ooled into thinking that these piquant purple plants are inherently super-weed. Just like with people, it’s what’s on the inside (and sometimes genetics) that counts!
So, go forth and toke with this newfound knowledge! Be mindful that it’s the experience and not the hue that adds spice to your evening puff. Besides, the rainbow of weed strains out there is vast and exciting – why limit yourself to just purple? Adventure awaits, Mary Jane enthusiasts!
