Purple OG Kush represents an Indica dominant strain that offers both a range of relaxing properties and a pretty high potency. It originates from a crossing between two famous parent-strains, Purple Kush and OG Kush. The THC content usually ranges between 16% and 20%, while the CBD level is about 0.57%-1.45%. Purple OG Kush has many properties that highlight it among others, and the responsibility for this falls onto its vast terpene profile that includes:

Purple OG Kush Strain Flavor Profile

This weed provides a flavor that resembles a delicious mix where berry, grape, and piney tastes combine with earthy notes, sweetness, and pungency. In this palette, the base for bright berry flavor is created by Limonene and Linalool, when Caryophyllene brings the distinct grape notes. At the same time, the terpene Ocimene is the main lead that provides a lot of flavors, including earthiness, sweetness, and pungency. Last but not least is Phellandrene, which enhances the sweetness and is the one on duty for the presence of piney fragrance. 

Purple OG Kush Common Effects

This marijuana has effects that perfectly suit its potent Indica nature, inducing a noticeable hit of relaxation that comes with a package of euphoria and blissful happiness. Many reviewers admit that Purple OG Kush strain can increase creative abilities, as well as tends to make the consumer rather sedated. In some cases, it may also provide tingles and even arousal properties, which makes the uses of this Indica even more versatile.

Due to its high THC levels and powerful relaxing effects, it’s recommended to be careful with this strain, even for experienced smokers. The best time for consumption is during the night time because it tends to induce drowsiness and has a reputation as a strain for relieving insomnia. Besides, this cannabis is famous for bringing severe munches, so it would be sensible to prepare some food beforehand.

Among the vast properties of this kush, some can help relieve a range of medical disorders:

  • ADD/ADHD
  • Anorexia
  • Arthritis
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Hypertension
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Migraines

As a rather potent Indica, there is nothing surprising that consuming Purple OG Kush, especially overconsumption, may cause a few side effects:

  • Nausea
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Hunger
  • Fatigue
