Purple Skunk Strain
Purple Skunk is a sativa-dominant hybrid strain that comes from a cross of Skunk #1 and an older purple strain. Purple Skunk is more on the Sativa spectrum so expect creative cerebral effects with a strong dose of euphoria, a tingling sensation, and powerful hunger. That makes this a good strain for treating lack of appetite, though it’s also effective with anxiety, depression, migraine headaches, chronic pain, insomnia, and daily stresses. Purple Skunk has relatively high THC content, and that makes for potent psychoactive effects that may be too strong for newcomers and part-time tokers.
For that reason alone, Purple Skunk shouldn’t be used as a CBD strain for patients whose conditions require that chemical. This strain tastes of berry, earth, and Skunk, while it smells much the same. Reported side effects include watery eyes, cottonmouth, dizziness, headaches, and paranoia.
