Purple Power Strain
Purple Power is an enormously popular strain of marijuana. Purple Power is a 70% Sativa dominant strain and is one that regular users have come to love and adore. This Sativa is the result of a cross between an old skunk (most probably Skunk 1) along with Purple Haze. Its THC content is on the higher end of average – varying between 15% and 20%. Purple Power gained its claim to fame after taking home first place in the well-known High Times Cannabis Cup of 1998 and has been considered a Grade A strain ever since. The name of the plant is justified by its beautiful purple appearance. It has a dark purple texture, covered with orange and dark green hairs. The dark-colored buds have white crystals speckled throughout them. In high doses, this plant can actually be psychedelic. You can expect a sweet and fruity aroma emanating from the Purple Power buds (especially when broken open), but there might be some sour undertones.
Why do Patients Use Purple Power?
Purple Power is an extremely popular form of medical marijuana. The THC content of 15-20% is the perfect range, not too heavy and not too light. As a Sativa dominant strain with euphoric effects, it is more often prescribed for its ability to alleviate depression, stress, and anxiety as opposed to chronic pain, insomnia, and appetite. It is good for the treatment of many mental illnesses. It is always important to consider that some individuals do not respond well to high Sativa strains of marijuana, and research has pointed out that in certain individuals already susceptible to psychotic symptoms, high Sativa strains may worse them in the short term.
