Purple Kush (a.k.a. “Purple Hindu Kush”) is a wildly popular, and vividly beautiful pure indica marijuana strain. Originally created by breeders in the famed Oaksterdam, a cultural district in Oakland, California known for being one of the oldest, legal medical marijuana areas in the U.S., Purple Kush is a cross between Hindu Kush, a strain from the mountainous Pakistan-Afghanistan border, and a purple-tinged variety of Afghani (a.k.a. Purple Afghani), which gives the Purple Kush its colourful hue. With an earthy aroma, and sugary grape-like taste, these densely packed green and purple buds, covered in white trichomes, eases you into a physical, relaxing body high, which leads into a euphoric and slightly psychedelic head high. With a high THC composition, and intense sedative effects, this weed strain provides effective pain relief, and can be an effective medical treatment for those suffering from insomnia.
