Purple Kush Marijuana Strain

Indica Dominant Hybrid

Purple Kush is a potent indica strain from the West Coast of the United States. Its popularity stems from the pure bliss it can rain down on you, hence why it has become an easy go-to choice for anyone seeking a little rest and relaxation and a full night’s rest.

Because of its royal indica roots, Purple Kush is especially effective at inducing a full bodied relaxation. Its sweet grape fragrance is iconic in the scene, and the special orange and purple bits in the flower makes for a distinctive look that is famous everywhere.

Purple Kush is a pure indica strain that emerged from the Oakland area of California as the result of crossing Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani.


Purple Kush, due to its strong superstar indica parents, is a master at relaxation. This strain is uplifting and creates a warm euphoric high that can cause sleepiness in some. Purple Kush will leave you feeling happily sedated, surrounded by joyous thoughts combined with all the fuzzy feelings you can muster.

This strain is perfect for anyone who wants to unwind and forget the worries of their days, and needs to physically and mentally let go. Purple Kush is a potent downer, and will encourage you to clear your head and succumb to a long restful sleep. Occasionally, this strain can also cause the munchies, causing some to reach for the dreaded snack drawer.

Purple Kush can produce effects that can last for hours, as is known for being extra potent, so it is best to take it easy when you first sample this strain. A little will go a long way for starters. Some users have reported feeling tripped out and like they were experiencing an out-of-body high.


You can tell this strain apart from its cousins, by its well-known pungent smell. A thoroughly fragrant bud, Purple Kush boasts of a fruity, sweet aroma, that is mixed with a distinct earthiness. It leaves a whiff in the air that reminds you of grapes soaked in rich spices.


Purple Kush has a very special earthiness to it. Its taste is reminiscent of sandalwood with a hint of sweet grapes, causing a sensation of flavors when smoked. Its tangy natural flavor reminds you of berries and other cold-climate fruits, making it a sweet-tasting indica that is hard to forget.

Adverse reactions

What makes Purple Kush a great choice for an everyday smoke, is the fact that its side effects are kept at a minimum. Sometimes a case of dizzy spells and headaches can be observed when smoking this strain.

Another adverse reaction may be a slight onslaught of paranoia, especially when you consume this potent indica in larger quantities. Among the more noticeable side effects are the cottonmouth sensation and a case of dry eyes, as Purple Kush can sometimes leave you feeling slightly dehydrated.


Because this body-numbing strain is so effective at keeping chronic pain and muscle spasms away, it has become an instant favorite in patients.

Purple Kush can help keep symptoms of stress at bay. It can help you clear your mind of all the heavy and complicated concerns you might be dealing with, and will put you at ease. This is why this strain is also widely recommended for the treatment of depression and anxieties.

Purple Kush may also aid in inducing a healthy appetite that may have been lost in complex chemical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation in long suffering cancer patients. This strain can cause the munchies in everyone, which makes for a natural and side-effect-free way of helping patients gain back weight they have lost.

Purple Kush is quite resilient against common threats, and it is naturally mold-resistant. Pests and parasites don’t generally choose this plant to attack, because of the bitter taste they get from its leaves.

Possible Side Effects

Traditionally, there is not much risk linked with consuming Purple Kush as it isn’t a stimulator or sativa-influenced marijuana strain in any way. Paranoia, anxiety or increased stress should not be a worry with PK, so the only possibilities left are more physical-like adverse effects.

The majority of consumers who have reported negative effects claim cottonmouth as the number one downfall of Purple Kush weed.

Thankfully, this is the most common possible side effect tied with the consumption of just about any marijuana strain and is easily manageable with a little extra preparation. Be sure to drink plenty of hydrating fluids before, during, and after your high, which will help to quench any thirst you might be experiencing and cause your mouth to start producing adequate saliva again.

  1. Alonso

    Good high, but not as thought-provoking as its blend with OG kush. Felt happy & relaxed.

  2. Nylah

    Purple kush is an amazing antianxiety strain two hits and you’ve forgotten what you were worried about.

  3. Bridger

    Purple Kush gave me a very unique and special high. It gave me a nice euphoric feeling, yet relaxed me to the point where my girlfriend almost broke up with me, but I really didn’t care. This is definitely a strain I would recommend to anyone.

  4. Cedric Lyons

    The strain was extremly mellow and gave me a clean body high. It was very eurphoric combined with the right activities, but It was very dehydrating even with a steady consumption of water. At the come up it was very energetic, but in the end it gave me strong fatigue. Make sure not to smoke much as the come up is very slow.

  5. Bryce Rhodes

    The go to weed for anxiety relief. It makes life bearable at the worst of times! You’ll huff, and you’ll puff, and you’ll sink into the couch with some doritos without a care in the world! Very pleasant high. Wicked dry mouth though.

  6. Roy Roy

    PK is one of those strains that I’ll always have at least a couple grams of. It is one of my go to Medical strains as I am a patient suffering from Chronic Pain resulting in severe Secondary Insomnia. It’s always nice to sit down at the end of the night and smoke a bowl of Purple Kush. As I take my first couple rips I feel it slowly calming me and relieving pain and somewhere around the 2nd bowl is when I call it bed-time! Definitely recommend!

  7. Carpenter

    Most powerful indica I’ve smoked. When you’re smoking you might be thinking “Oh, this shit isn’t getting me stoned” until it hits you. It hits you everything at the same time, from your legs to your ears. Music feels amazing, and you feel in great control of your body. Also, food has NEVER tasted this orgasmic. Totally recommend it for smoking it before bed, it gets you sleeping like a baby. Would be good for socializing at a party, since it does not affect the brain as much, just a clear head high.

  8. Kai Schroeder

    The vendor said, it’s the best weed he ever had. Guess what it was: Purple Kush. The smell is so amazing. I taste eucalyptus, lavender, grape and earth tones. The high comes rather quick and is very relaxing and euphoric. It had me rapping, even though I never rap! I got quite creative and I was still able to be a little active. I guess the latter would change with higher consumption. 😀 Enjoy this goodie if you get the chance! I had awesome times with it.

  9. Alvarez Hale

    Happy, laughy, it really creeps up on you, very distinct high, lucid, hungry

  10. Rocco Fields

    It never fails to deliver just the perfect amount of body melting into the couch effect that I love at the end of the day. One of my faves.

  11. Carlo Chan

    Perfect stain to kick back and watch Studio Ghibli movies with, eyes were heavy then euphoria excellent dank.

  12. Hughes

    One of the best indica strains I’ve experienced, it brightens up your supposedly dull day through giggles and one of the best body buzzes ever. I now understand why this strain is a classic.

  13. Ronald Small

    Purple Kush is one hell of an indica. From the first 2-3 pulls you already start to feel your eyes get low and your body melt into the sofa. If you prefer indicas like I do this is the perfect strain for you. Good for days you just wanna be lazy or after a long hard day at work. This is a definite knockout strain.

  14. Hodge

    Purple kush where do i start…lets see smoked a bowl of this and my body went straight into a relaxed state. It felt lovely, i decided to smoked another bowl right after and while i was packing it, i couldnt help but notice the sativa effects of the strain kicking in. I started wondering how high am i really? Im not a trippy type person but alot of weird/trippy stuff happened while i was high on PK. Stuff i couldnt even explain. It tripped me out but i was too high and relaxed to care. after an hour my eyes were extremely heavy but i wasnt too sleepy, just very relaxed. I decided to watch a movie and was high the whole time…love this indica Rate.

  15. Scarlet Huffman

    Very mello effect… not to mention how fast the high creeps on you. One of my best highs with this strain. The buds have a layer of sparkling crystals, and gives off a scent that’s a mix of wood & grapes. Although, the bag that I received is much greener than expected for a strain that has “purple” in the name.

  16. Shaniya Prince

    Good crystal, nice solid nugs, purple just peeking out of the crystal. Reminds me of all sorts of sugary cereals and nerd candies. Smell is funky, It’s got that heavy indica smell that most Kush strains have. Taste is pleasant, what I don’t like is the heavy cough factor, not my fav. However this knocks me down, for me it supplies the heavy sedation that I need at night. It is for me, a “F-off I’m sleepy” state. I be cranky when tired.

  17. Boston Knight

    I haven’t had this since the early 90ies. ..almost like I remember taste of candy cane super purple smells like minty sweet grape worked for joint pain and fun times lol.

  18. Chaya Lynn

    Go to strain when you’re stressed out or need sleep, extremely euphoric with no paranoia whatsoever.

  19. Riley Good

    One of my all time favourites. PK is usually hit or miss, depending on the dispensary you purchase it from. Luckily, my dispensary does it perfectly. Nice, purple buds that look like they were rolled in sugar from how crystal coated they are. Don’t be fooled by its heavy indica genes, PK makes your body and mind both happy. Slight euphoria and stresslessness combined with very strong body sedation makes for an awesome sleeping aid, mood enhancer, or pain reliever. Would recommend to any patient that doesn’t have to be anywhere after medicating.

  20. Rylee Nguyen

    Purple kush is my go-to when I need to get a bunch of creative work done. I’m focused, positive and super creative when I smoke purple kush.

  21. Adrienne Li

    Really good, helps me fall asleep, when you use a lot of it, it makes your limbs really heavy, which feels cool. I really like it.

  22. Marie Cross

    A friend of mine rolled an eighth in two swishers. magnificent burn. i usually burn the papers but the swisher sweets go very nicely with this strand.

  23. Layton Rocha

    I personally enjoyed the experience I had smokin this chill, earthy strain. Purple Kush is the best way to relax and feel good. I have noticed the effects about 15 minutes after a blunt. you can really feel the indica dominance this strain possesses.. after a smooth, deep hit you will be medicated.

  24. Nelson

    Good pain relief without knocking you out at first. Like a good indica it lifts you for a short period while allowing for a mostly clear headed experience only to lull you to a calming lethargic feeling.

  25. Henry

    The strain is a strong pain killer that gives a intense body high but it is lacking in tast that other strains possess.

  26. Toby Farmer

    Smoked this out of a home made bong and time seemed to slow as this herbs effects lasted for many hours after smoking, I was the most relaxed I’ve ever been in my life and I watched half the spongbob movie before I had to stop and say ” what the fuck am I doing?” afterwards I went for a ride on my long board and it felt amazing this is a good strain if you just want your entire body to be completely immobilized. definitely would try again !

  27. Koch Washington

    Best Indica strain I’ve ever gotten ahold of, such a soothing high with you body and gives you the right amount of munchies to grub on a bowl of cereal or two, just awesome all around 5/5*

  28. Alvarez

    4.5 at least. This batch from G+ is from a well respected grower, and it shows. Fluffy , slightly leafy buds, all completely frosted. Taste is grapey and sweet. The high is everything PK should be, relaxing and dreamy, with creativity as a bonus. This batch was surprisingly potent, I got quite a bit out of a smallish bowl. I found music was very enjoyable. I will compare it with the same strain from a competitor tonight, but just by smell alone, I bet I will be back for more of this one. A competitor’s PK was only marginally lower in quality, organic, and they had a 20% off birthday sale coming. The first one is Superb, but I just couldn’t pass up a such a good deal. good deal.

  29. Jasper Shelton

    Amazing couchlock high. I have 2 Kush strains. This and grapefruit. Totally different. Happy and sedated. Just like the Gorilazs song.

  30. William Tourjee

    Last year friends gave me a PK to grow for them. It was my first plant. I left it in a pot, didn’t trim or fertilize it, didn’t get it as much sun as i could have and probably overwatered it. We ended up with 3.5 oz of butt-kicking bud, which would have been fine if I didn’t have to share over half of it! This year I waited for them to get another one but what they had gotten was undetermined strain and (as I later found out) a boy. I ordered PK seeds and germinated one of them on July 3 and planted it the next day. It’s about 2-3 feet tall and is already in the earliest stage of budding. This plant – whatever I get out of it – is all mine. Everybody else gets my Bubba Kush (18% vs. PK’s 24%). As strong as PK is, it doesn’t glue you to the couch. Just a really good, sizable body buzz. I love it. After decarbing, grind up just a little it, eat it between two small pieces of chocolate (or other type of fat) and you’ have a very nice 5-6 hour ride. Pair it with the right sativa and you may NOT be able to get off the couch.

  31. Okta

    What’s not to love! I added a tiny slice of lemon peel skin to my jar and waited 2- 4 hours to bring some moisture back in. You can also use Lettuce. Anyone who complains or writes bad reviews for dispensaries with dry bud is just plain lazy and ignorant. This is a beautiful thing; don’t ruin it with your poor attitude. Show some gratitude and respect.

  32. Roy Roy

    This is a great strain! Breezy head-high and good body high. Feel a bit locked to my seat but 4/5 for sure!

  33. Carleigh Gonzalez

    It was a very smooth intake and had a very quick effect. I found myself very relaxed and very happy.

  34. Dunn Glover

    Love this indica. Smells and tastes like grape koolaid. Got pretty sleepy and hungry almost immediately, and my stress is gone. I can feel my physical pain melting away. Ladies this is a great strain for menstrual symptoms!

  35. Audrina Frank

    Good yield, easy grower, good strong kush taste and flavor. Turns purple midway threw week 8 of flower.

  36. Abby Cantrell

    This is a very strange purple. It isn’t physically purple, but its effects are of those who have purple. Very mellow, back of the head high with some relaxing pressure behind both eyeballs. Unfortunate dry mouth, but a fortunate giggle fit. Great strain to chill and kick it, and looking for a laugh.

  37. Brycen Oconnell

    This strain always help with my appetite and easing the constant anxiety I feel while in College..plus it tastes like literal grapes when you vaporize it!:D Strongly recommend for anyone dealing with physical pain, it’s a great Indica

  38. Stanton

    Smoking weed in my country is illegal, but guess what?! I found em in my country and I BLAZED IT!! Since weed is illegal in my country, all we got here is some shit weed, like bricks…. It’s really bad. Purple Kush is my first bud in my life. 3 hits I could already feel my lips getting dry, the hit was hard but soothing, it’s was really smooth when you draw it, it gives you a citrusy taste when you exhale. It’s incredible, I had so much fun with this, I felt really relaxed and I couldn’t feel my back pain for a moment. I’m definitely gonna smoke this again!! BLAZE IT PEOPLE!!

  39. Adrienne Li

    This med will knock you on your fourth point of contact! Very good for insomnia and anxiety. I was mellow, chill, laid back and slept like a rock. My wife had to WAKE me b/c the dogs were barking.

  40. Mackenzie Foley

    This is honestly my favorite strain. I get it very cheap about 60 miles away from where I live, but it’s worth the trip every time.

  41. Victor Mccann

    Firstly, very nice smoke with a great aroma. After the first hit I felt the effects almost instantly; a nice warming feeling through my body and a sense of deep relaxation. I felt very little head high, maybe everything seemed a little more colorful, but otherwise very clear headed. I caught my mind wandering a couple times but that was it. My PK was an excellent choice for chilling out and relaxing, not very talkative, and good for watching a movie or something, I still was able to pay attention to the film.

  42. Braylen Krueger

    Great strain in general, smoked this with a friend while tripping on acid, highly recommended if you’ve ever wanted to harmonize every word 9 in the afternoon and be totally comfortable doing it.

  43. Shaniya Prince

    Great taste, great smell. Few actually purple hairs, might have been clipped a little early. Potent in all the right ways. Don’t try to stay up late smoking, though: the spins can get a bit overwhelming.

  44. Boston Knight

    The buds for this strain, look awesome, great color to it. Has that great indica and kush taste, with a little purple on top, haha. Purple buds always seem to have this one distinct taste, and this has a lot of it. A good bud for killing anxiety if needed, and great for anyone with sleeping issues. This strain is great for the night, but under certain conditions, it could be used in the day. Just don’t have too many plans if you are.

  45. Finley Rubio

    Full body high, helps with insomnia and anxiety after a long, stressful day at work. Easily one of my favorite strains, certainly a go-to for anyone with trouble sleeping.

  46. Sheppard

    Taste so good and hits even better. I felt very relaxed and care free afterwords. Didn’t give me the munchies really, made me drowsy.

  47. Bradley Henson

    Well rounded indica. Easy to smoke during the day without getting sleepy. For later in the day, smoking large amounts gets the job done for my insomnia. Also one of my favorite strains in terms of taste.

  48. Chaya Lynn

    Too much market saturation of this strain but it’s mostly just due to fact that you can be a first time grower and get a decently strong bud from this. Great for seasoned smokers who want a sleepy smoke. Tastes well. Easily rebranded to granddaddy purple often causing a lot of confusion sometimes. Often this strain makes it seem like you just took a hit of morphine as you just sink into deep relaxation and happiness (due to the fact you’re stoned to the nines)

  49. Cedric Lyons

    Perfect for inflammation/pain, insomnia, lack of appetite and anxiety. I always end up repurchasing because of its awesome therapeutical effects. I can see this strain helping those patients who usually take pain meds and want a natural alternative.

  50. Jasper Shelton

    I’ve tried strains a lot for 4 days in Amsterdam. Actually im a sativa person but this was the best strain for me. The best adj. For this strain is “euphoric”. You’ll love everything around you.

  51. Mad Max

    One of my new favorites. Shucky farms hooked me up and great substitute for banana kush. It works for sleeping, chilling, my migraines and good for sex lol. Loved it.

  52. Larson

    I’m not a huge fan of the taste, it is just an odd flavor. It is pretty easy to get over when you start to feel the effects. I immediately felt the tension leave my shoulders and everything that normally hurts on my body started to tingle; my back, my knee, my ankles, my head. I was giggly and goofy and felt like I could let loose. I didn’t get the munchies as severe as I usually do but I did get them. Overall it’s a good smoke, I’d have it again, but because of the taste I would pick something different when I have choices.

  53. Zain Kline

    Another big favorite of mine, really takes away all thoughts and makes you just wanna sleep. The taste and high are what really get you to really enjoy it.

  54. Dealynn

    One bowl in and I’ve already forgot every problem I had since the fifth grade. If you need to relax this is the strain for you you’ll be glued to the couch in no time but still functional

  55. Williamson

    Condemned for the centuries to be said it is, but seldom is: the, Purple Kush. The only strain I know so well, by scent/taste/appearance, I have learned to appreciate these consistencies. Very versatile, it can become elevated to a cult following. The dynamism of this strain is the new cultivator can experiment and experience rewarding results. I have lowered the odour after harvest, eliminated any skunk or cheese notes, and locked in a 10:10 ratio of CBD to THC. I increased the pre-harvest odour, and from there made a 0:24 ratio. Best of my first time experiences, and a Hallmark to the Amsterdam Netherlands Tour. Once tried, it is hard to replicate. Perfection.

  56. Sean

    This purple kush is fire. always a good one to come home too and have a nice fat bowl of to set yoy in complete relaxation but your still able to function!
