The Purple Snowman strain is a rare breed in the cannabis society and a cross between Sour Chem and Purple Elephant. It is a 50/50 hybrid with 18.67-22% THC. This content is considered more than average and recommended for marijuana veterans. This weed type is a concentration of various cannabinoids that are potentially beneficial for patients with chronic debilitating conditions:

  • CBD 0.38-0.49%
  • CBC 0.3-0.49%
  • CBG 0.18-0.41%
  • CBN 0.12-0.2%

Taste and Aroma of Purple Snowman

The dried flowers of Purple Snowman burst with an herbal and spicy aroma. Aside from this peppery smell, the buds release sweet grape, berry, and tea scents that make the smoke less pungent. Slight diesel overtones can also be detected. The combo of diverse odors is brought by the cannabis terpene profile, which includes:

  • Carene
  • Camphene
  • Limonene
  • Caryophyllene

Most Common Effects

The effects ensured by the Purple Snowman strain are sedative and calming, as the relaxing Indica side reveals itself. The Sativa edge brings a social boost and inspires chattiness and uncontrolled giggles. It can also induce creativity and a temporary energy boost, but slow waves of euphoria and happiness soon will wash over smokers, making them pretty lazy.

Purple Snowman’s versatile effects have several uses for medical marijuana patients who fight with:

  • Depression
  • Migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Phantom limb pain
  • PMS
  • Arthritis
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Stress
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Anxiety

In individuals who don’t have a high THC tolerance, the weed may result in side effects such as hunger, low blood pressure, and heightened sensory perception.

Purple Snowman Growth Review

Growing Purple Snowman is challenging and cannot be recommended for novice cannabis growers. Despite this fact, its quick 55/62-day flowering period is highly desired by impatient cultivators. The plants reach 60’’-80’’ when bred outdoors and can be less than 30’’ in indoor environments, which is an excellent variant for limited spaces. The harvest is expected in 68 days, providing growers with 1-2 oz./ft2 for inside and 15-20 oz./plant for outside conditions. The plants form rounded olive green nugs with a purple undertone.

CBD 0.38 - 0.49% 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 0.3 - 0.49% 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 0.18 - 0.41% 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 0.12 - 0.2% 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 0.28 - 0.47% 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.
