The Purple Rhino strain is a 60/40 Indica dominant hybrid created by crossbreeding of White Rhino and Mendocino Purps. The THC content can be 10.4-12.4%, and it amounts to 11.4% in this batch. The cannabinoid profile is outstanding:

  • CBC 0.23-1.31%
  • CBG 0.5-1.67%
  • CBN 0.23%
  • THCV 0.45-1.29%
  • CBD 0.29-0.51%

Despite the fact that this cannabis type has a low THC percentage, it is recommended for confident users, while a pure Indica version of this strain is intended only for veterans.

Purple Rhino Taste and Aroma

This cannabis features a combo of 2 dominant aromas – skunky, which traces back to White Rhino, and pine, which is typical for the Purps lineage. Both flavors demonstrate that the strain is rich in phellandrene. Some users discern a citrus smell as a characteristic of pinene and subtle sweet notes typical for myrcene. People with a sharp feel for aromas detect berry and earthy hints. Limonene, linalool, and valencene should also be mentioned here to complete the list of all terpenes present in this photoperiod marijuana type.

Strain Properties and Effects

As you can expect from a hybrid, the Purple Rhino strain is known to deliver both cerebral and body effects. This kush makes smokers feel euphoric, uplifted, and happy. At the same time, it relaxes muscles and provides mild sedation. Some consumers report they feel increased hunger. The weed helps people combat symptoms of the following conditions:

  • Anxiety
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

When taken in high doses, the pot may cause adverse reactions. Potential side effects include:

  • Paranoia
  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Low blood pressure
  • Drowsiness
  • Fatigue

Growing Review

Surprisingly, this phenotype is not quite popular among growers. The plants are easy to grow and resistant to most pests. They can grow in any environment but prefer warm and dry climates if cultivated outdoors. The strain flowers in 49-63 days and is ready to harvest in 70 days. The height of plants is average – 60’’-80’’. This low-maintenance cannabis gives growers a 1-2 oz./ft2 yield indoors and 2-3 oz./ft2 when grown outdoors.

Getting relaxed, hungry and happy are the influence of Purple Rhino strain. For what concerns the flavor, it is berry and citrus thanks to linalool, valencene, and myrcene terpenes.
