Pura Vida is a hybrid strain that manages to gain important reputation in the global cannabis community. It is obtained by crossing LA Pure Kush with Appalachia, resulting in a strong weed and high-quality buds.

The buds have a pungent smell of skunk, lemons, and pine combined with ammonia. The flavor, however, is not as strong, while the taste is a combination of sweet lemons and harsh chemicals.

The effects are extremely heavy and powerful, growing in intensity as time goes on. It starts with a soft tingle in the neck that quickly encompasses the whole body. It leaves the smoker utterly relaxed on their sofa, melting away the worries and pains alike. The potent high also comes with euphoria and uplifted mood as Pura Vida strain feeds the mind only positive thoughts. It finishes off with sedation and sleep.

Pura Vida Strain Cannabinoids

THC 24 - 25.33% Tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is a major cannabis chemical compound. It is a psychoactive element that stimulates dopamine release and induces euphoria or happiness. THC-rich strains may be helpful with such conditions as lack of appetite, chronic pains , etc. It is considered to be the primary active marijuana component.
CBD 0.34 - 0.73% Cannabidiol, or CBD, is a major compound in cannabis, which is non-psychoactive. It is also proved to counteract the side effects of the second major component THC. CBD is widely used for medicinal purposes in rubs, oils and so on. It is helpful in muscle pain cases, may treat arthritis and migraines. Even Greeks used it against pain, while Queen Victoria applied it to get rid of menstrual cramps.
CBC 0.38 - 0.74% Cannabichromene, or CBC, is a minor cannabinoid, meaning that its quantity in cannabis is quite little. Though it has the same origin as CBD and THC, it is different in functions. Without any psychoactive effects, it is an efficient cannabis compound in combating acne and depression. CBC produces analgesic, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
CBG 0.33 - 0.98% Cannabigerol, or CBG, is one of the minor cannabis compounds in adult plants. On the other hand, young ones contain a lot of this antibacterial and anti-inflammatory component. During the growth, CBG is converted into different cannabinoids, mostly THC and CBD. The compound itself increases appetite and decreases eye pressure.
CBN 0.02 - 0.27% Cannabinol, or CBN, is a trace element in cannabis that is considered to be mildly psychoactive. It appears from oxidation THC, exposed to light and heat. CBN is mostly contained in old cannabis and in traditional hashish. It is effective against insomnia, bacterial infections and appetite loss.
THCV 0.27 - 0.93% Tetrahydrocannabivarin, or THC-V, is a compound contained in cannabis in trace amounts. Even though it is close to THC molecularly, it is different in effects. This compound may be psychoactive only in large amounts. THC-V reduces blood sugar, controls appetite, stimulates bone growth, etc. African Sativa strains are the richest in THC-V.

Those buds are crazy MAN! Its not easy to come by a weed that has both dense and huge nuggets that you can easly grind for rolling and chop down for a pipe. Personally I preffer pipe because the high comes in much faster and its heavier

my wife and I like to go out for the weekend and spend some time just between ourselves. We usually get some weed or shrooms, depending on the mood, and the last time we went on a road trip, we took some pura vida with us. It was a spectacular experience. Full recommendation!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! The high is intensive and gets you up and down several times before its done. Youre gonna want to smoke another one just as the effects start to ware off, but you really shouldnt. ITS A TRAP!

I think theres more CBD than people are saying because its impossible to get such a powerful numbing sensation throughout your entire body with less than 1 percent. Still, the trip is amazing joyride!
