The Purple Candy strain is an Indica-dominant hybrid with a 70/30 ratio of Indica and Sativa in its composition. However, the Indica character dominates in its effects. The THC content averages around 17-20%, so it's a good choice for both novice smokers who want to relax and veteran tokers looking to plunge into the peaceful bliss. Purple Candy weed has interesting genetics. It's a cross between Mendocino Purps and BC Sweet Tooth, and it has Afghani, Nepalese, and Hawaiian roots in its genetics.

I love the colorful look, a unique combo of purple, amber and green sheltered by glittering trichomes. The smell of roses make me hooked and the taste of honey keeps me coming back. Look how Im behaving, happyy and euphoric.

Purple Candy Strain Is a Grape-Flavored Hybrid Named After Our Favorite Candy

The Flavor of the Purple Candy Strain

True to its name, this weed has a candy-like taste. It also carries a recognizable mixture of woody and pine notes, accentuated by an amazing fruit aroma of berries and grapes that can make your mouth water right after the first puff. The smoke from it is palatable and not overwhelming, so you can safely combust it in public without worrying about drawing too much attention to yourself.

The Effects of the Marijuana

This high is relatively slow, and it usually takes up to a few minutes before the weed makes its presence known after it has been toked. As a rule, the effect reveals itself with light pressure around the area of your temples and then spreads further throughout your body, distorting the sense of time. Most often than not, this is the moment when users feel uplifted and have an incredible boost in productivity, which makes it easier for them to concentrate on work or creative projects. Over time, this effect points itself towards physical relaxation, where all you want is to just kick back and relax. Due to these properties, this cannabis is best used on those days when you’ve got no specific plans.

Medical Uses

Just like most other strains, Purple Candy is known for its versatile effect, allowing it to be used not only for pure enjoyment but also for treating medical cannabis patients diagnosed with:

  • Arthritis
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Numb pains
  • Panic attacks
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea

That being said, it’s worth noting that if a dosage’s been increased, the marijuana can leave you couchlocked, squelching any motivation to get out of your bed and do a thing.

Growing Tips and Recommendations

The Purple Candy weed strain is moderately easy to grow, as it requires to be cultivated either in a greenhouse or in a semi-humid climate with temperatures between 70-80 Fahrenheit. On the other hand, you won’t find any difficulty finding its seeds — they can be purchased online from any retailer. On average, the flowering time of this weed takes about 8-9 weeks, while the harvest time comes in 72 days. Whether you grow it indoors or out, the plant can reach up to 80 inches high, meaning it needs to be pruned occasionally to keep it growing healthily.

This is one of those kind of night that the available becomes the desired. I really needed something for my depression and I got Grape valley kush and it was okay but still not on the same level with Purple candy. The smell and taste is still better and brighter.
