Purple Candy


Purple Candy is one of those indica-dominant crosses that’s good all around, especially for those who need strong relaxing medication. This British Columbian strain is commonly thought to be a cross of BC Sweet Tooth and Mendocino Purps, and its large flowers with rich purple coloring and amber hairs support the purple genetics. Purple Candy’s frosty buds will leave your hands sticky, much like normal candy, but instead of a sugar rush it will provide some happy sativa effects. The sensation will settle into a full body buzz that may leave you lazy and ready for bed. Sugary-sweet in scent and taste, Purple Candy will have you thinking of your favorite grape-flavored treat.

Genetics/Lineage: Purple Candy is bred by the Canadian breeders Smoke-A-Lot. It’s a cross between {Purple Wreck x OG Kush} x Godzilla Grape, which have some interesting lineages themselves. Purple Wreck is a cross between Purple Urkel and Trainwreck while Godzilla Grape is a has a long lineage containing such names as Purple Thai, Sweet Tooth #1 and Grapefruit to name a few.
A few websites I noticed are claiming Purple Candy was bred by BC Bud Depot from two of it’s strains The Purps and Sweet Tooth. When I called them to inquire they had in fact never even heard of Purple Candy and frankly were surprised that anyone would cross The Purps with anything, it being so wonderful on its own.
Purple Candy is an indica heavy hybrid with noticeable sativa effects early on.

Appearance to the Naked Eye: Obviously a purple. The calyxes are a deep satisfying hue of royal purple on a bed of dark evergreen leaves. The leaves come frosted with white trichomes and surrounded by dark amber or brown stigmas. Bag Appeal… yes.


Aroma: There is an obvious rich candy-like smell to this variety. It’s something like a cotton candy or a lollipop texture to the smell. Digging a little deeper the classic Sweet Tooth funk is there along with a little piquant aroma too. But there is definitely a sweet syrupy smell to it.


Taste: Upon inhalation the sweet candy smell is followed up by a sweet candy taste. It has a large mouth-feel and a lingering flavor. There are hints of a nutty or seed-like flavor once you get past the candy too. A little like sunflower seeds maybe? But it definitely hits the tip of the tongue with some sugary flavor.


Effects: I found the effects to be immediately calming and mentally clarifying. There is a touch of sativa qualities that come on just at the onset for the first five minutes or so while the indica-dominant traits set in. The full effects hit around fifteen minutes in and I remained buzzing for a good twenty to thirty minutes before settling into the lingering body-high.


Duration: The effects of a joint lasted a good hour and forty-five minutes and continued lingering mildly for another half-hour to an hour.


Medicinal Uses: This strain would be helpful for anxiety, insomnia, muscle spasms and general pain management.


Overall: With a relatively high THC content Purple Candy is a solid and relaxing indica high. It’s good for the body and mind and I found it effective for treating my muscle spasms. It’s comforting and sedating and I was definitely feeling the couch-lock. My recommendation is to try it out… it has some unique nuances to the whole high and how it descends from the mental stimulation early on to a placid numbness, but really… there are better strains out there probably for what you’re looking for whether you’re a patient or a connoisseur.

Strain Review

The Candy Purple I am sampling at the moment is very good. The buds are beautiful, bright green mixed with deep purple viens and patches. The tips of the buds seem to be the most purple area, generally being completely purple. However, other nugs are bright green and have no purple at all. Each and every bud is completely caked up in trichs, some incomprehensibly frosty at the tops. Overall, it is truly camera friendly and b-e-autiful bud. This shit is DANK! A few fat bong tokes and I am completely gone. A joint passed around with some friends and you are blasted off. This stuff is just really potent. The high begins in the head, and is very euphoric. The first hour of the high is very euphoric and sends good vibes throughout your body, while the high remains in your head. It then moves to your body and is a very relaxing and happy indica body stone, which is very pain relieving as well. Overall, this cannabis is fantastic, and is possibly a couch lock for many. I am a fan of indicas and to me this is a lighter indica, still being very potent, yet not as lazy and sleepy as other heavy indicas. The smell is fucking pungent and is very grapey, fruity, and kushy. The buds are very tight and sizable. I have had this shit for about a week and a half, and its BOMB! Very high quality stuff and the duration is long, about 3 hours. When you see it (if you do), GET YOU HANDS ON IT!! 9.5/10
