Purple Skunk strain is an 85/15 Sativa based cannabis with great potency. It comes from Skunk#1 and some older purple strain making its linage brighter.

I find it very exciting when I find a flower that brings something new to the table. This high is not average. It is out of this world. Some may find it a bit strange, but I felt like I had seen a new world!

All About Purple Skunk Weed Strain

The aromas combine skunk, earth and sour berries. It tastes sour and skunk, reminiscent of wine. The THC levels range from 16% to 18%, which seems not so high. But consumers describe this bud as a strong one, so newbies should be aware of it.

The effects of Purple Skunk cannabis are typical for Sativa-dominant hybrid. It hits fast with first puffs and kicks in with the burst of energy. The high is mostly cerebral and, for some consumers, even creepy and psychedelic. The headrush makes it a good one for brainstorming or working on analytical projects. But this same effect keeps away users prone to panic or anxiety. The happy euphoria spreads throughout the whole body giving it a calm state while the head is focused and active.

I sometimes woorry about trying a new strain because I can get quite paranoid on cannabis. This bud did the exact opposite. Instead of feeling stressed and anxious, I was completely cool and collected. I wasnt even worried about socialising when I was high.

When I saw that purple skunk had 16% THC I thought it would be too mild. My experience was completely different. This was not a body high at all. It was completely cerebral. This bud was a perfect addition to the project I was working on. I felt like I was operating on all cylinders.

On the whole I am not a huge fan of skunk. I was always found it a bit too potent and pungent. But this strain has made me a convert. The euphoria I experienced was fantastic! I felt alive, vibrant and had such a clear head. Was not glued to my couch at all
