Digging deeper into the lineage of Cotton Candy, you will find Lavender consisting of Super Skunk, Big Skunk Korean, and (Afghani x Hawaiian). Basically, theLavender strain is just a crazy mash-up of different Skunk #1 batches, creating a purple phenotype that is more Indica-dominant and stable to grow both indoors and outdoors.
On the other hand, Power Plant has unknown Sativa lineage stemming from Africa. This gives Cotton Candy a bit more of a mental-kick, helping tame down the Indica genetics. This makes Cotton Candy especially attractive to medical marijuana patients suffering from stress, anxiety, ptsd, migraines, headaches, and minor aches and pains.
