Mendocino Purps Strain
Mendocino Purps, or Mendo Purps, or even just The Purps, comes out of Mendocino County in Northern California. Winning one of the Top Ten slots in High Times’ Strains of the Year in 2007, Mendocino Purps began as a clone-only plant, but BC Bud Depot developed a stable cross to make The Purps seeds available. This cannabis strain grows well both in and outdoors. It can grow 3-4 feet at harvest indoors and 6-8 feet outdoors. The flowering time for this strain is 8-9 weeks. It has medium-thick leaves and green hues that turn more purple as the plant ripens. The taste has been likened to caramel coffee and woodsy pine.
Like most pure Indica strains, it should be used in the afternoon or at night as users will become drowsy. For this reason, it is a good medication for insomnia. Mendocino Purps’ mood-elevating effects make it an effective medicine for relief from stress, anxiety, and depression. The numbing body high gently eases away most chronic aches and pains, particularly those that are accompanied by movement disorders such as muscle spasms. It is also used to calm nausea and increase appetite.
Mendocino Purps is a back-cross of a pure landrace USA Indica. As its name suggests, this clone-only strain came from Mendocino County in California. While the original Mendocino Purps is rare, BC Bud Depot received one in 2004 and inbred it to create seeds of the strain they called The Purps.
This strain generally features THC content in the teens, which can climb as high as 20%. Its cannabinoid levels generally fall between 0.20% and 0.30% but can be higher.
