Purple Marijuana Strains

Maybe it’s the color that sets smokers heart’s racing. Perhaps its the deep fruity flavor. One thing’s for sure, Purple Marijuana strains are extremely popular across the USA, with several top-quality strains available.

The history of Purple Marijuana strains can be traced back to the mid 1970’s and a strain known as Mendo Purps.

A small, Indica-dominant plant with little to set it apart, until it begins to mature. During the later stages of maturity, the flowers or pistils dramatically change color, emitting a deep red and purple hue that extends across the buds. Cooler night-time temperatures enhanced the plants colorful appearance, making it quite unique in the Cannabis community.

Development and cross-breeding led to the creation of several new, Purple Marijuana strains, some of which are still just as popular today. If you’re looking for something a little different, with huge ‘bag-appeal’ check out three of our most popular varieties.
