Purple Candy, sometimes called Candy Purple, is an indica leaning hybrid strain. The strain was created by BC Bud Depot, a group of highly reputable cannabis producers based in British Columbia. They crossed BC Sweet Tooth and Mendocino Purps, both strains known for their sweet flavour profiles and impressive relaxing effects. Purple Candy itself has a relatively average THC content of about 19%, making it the perfect night-time high for any users.
Appearance, Aroma, and Flavour
Purple Candy’s aroma and flavour are true to its name. The strain has a sugary grape flavouring with an equally sugary-sweet scent. The aroma has a slight undertone of cannabis’s natural skunky scent. The buds are hard to mistake for any other cannabis strain. Purple Candy is large and thick with a cone-like shape. The colouring is dark green with beautiful bursts of purple, accompanied by a thick coating of sticky white crystal trichomes.
Effects and Medical Uses
Purple Candy is known for its deep, heavy relaxation effects. Users will enjoy the release of stress and tension when smoking Purple Candy. It’s a great evening strain, as it can leave some couch-locked and sleepy for hours. The strain is often used for treating anxiety, insomnia, chronic fatigue, physical pain, and depression because of its intense relaxing qualities.
