Extensive Insight On the Blurple Strain Weed
It’s 2020 and we are boldly marching towards legalization for both medical and recreational use around the world. Nay-sayers can no longer deny the benefits of cannabis. Studies have been made and the issue has been settled. The strain we will talk about today is the Blurple Strain or as some people know it, The Blurpleberry.
Blurple boasts with THC levels of 10 – 19%. The same strain can have a version with double potency. So make sure that you check before smoking.
The CBD levels are 0.2% which helps the user relax, is anti-inflammatory, helps sleep disorders and have a lot of positive medical benefits. And lastly, the Blurple is a perfectly balanced hybrid strain with 50:50 Indica to Sativa ratio.
It was first developed in the mid-90s, but there is no information about the actual breeder. However, we do know that it was probably first made in the west coast.
The name Blurple stands for Blue Dream Purple and it is a nice and balanced mix of two other hybrid strains with different properties. Blue dream and Mendocino Purps. The first one gives an energizing buzz, sparks of happiness and gets you out of the house. The latter one is a stronger relaxant and has more medical uses, especially with pain and inflammation management.
These two parent strains are one of the most aromatic out there, and this translates heavily in the Blurple Strain.
Blurple Strain Effects
This herb is a fine balance between Sativa and Indica. 50 – 50 to be exact. This means that it is very versatile in its effects; it gets you relaxed but also gives you a bit of uplifting energy and happy feelings.
The Blurple Strain effects come slowly, around 10 – 15 minutes after smoking and last for about 2-3 hours, depending on how much you have consumed.
The Indica part is working wonders as a painkiller, relaxant and anxiety reducer. The Sativa part gets your creativity and awareness expanded, bringing a bit of euphoria and desire to talk and laugh.
A few people reported that this strain has made them fascinated with things and reported that watching trippy movies or videos or having conversations about topics such as the universe and aliens are very enjoyable.
Medical Use Of Blurple Weed
Users have reported that this strain helps a lot in reducing pain. Especially headaches and eye pressure. Also, it does well at reducing stress and anxiety, which means that it is also good at eliminating and reducing the symptoms of depression or even post-traumatic stress disorder.
Lastly like any other weed strain, it is a strong appetite enhancer.
If you have smoked cannabis before you already know that no strain has managed to escape the painfully dry eyes and cottonmouth (dry mouth), and Blurple is no different. Users have reported above-average dryness in the mouth and average dryness in the eyes. However, these symptoms are very easy to deal with, just prepare a soda and eye drops before you start smoking and you won’t even feel it.
There are some rare incidents of people reporting dizziness, headaches and light paranoia, but that is always the case of taking too much. So make sure that you check the THC levels of the particular Blurple blunt (range 10 – 19%) and then take appropriate quantities.
What Are The Reasons To Choose The Blurple Strain?
The Blurple color is dark green, so dark at times that it is almost brown. On the surface, there is also some orange. Blurple buds are shaped like spades and should be very sticky on the surface. If the weed is grown in colder temperatures during the night, it can change the surface stripes color from orange to blue or purple.

The taste reminds of sweet berry and earth.
When smoking it feels a little spicy.
Who Is It More Suitable For?

Other than this it is also versatile enough to be used recreationally with friends and talk about “deep” subjects and have calm and fascinating conversations both indoors and outdoors.
Opinion by growers
Growers report that Blurple is very easy to grow because it is very resistant to rot and mold. With a quick incubation period of ~8 weeks, it yields 12 – 14 ounces / m2 indoors and around 14 ounces /plant when grown outside. However, it requires a humid climate and lots of sunshine.
