Purple Candy

Purple Candy

Why would anyone name a strain after a can and what’s with the color? The answer to that is obvious. Purple Candy has a sweet candy flavor that should delight both the recreational and medical cannabis users. Purple, in this case, refers to the magnificent looking buds with purple colored tips and covered by white crystals.

But the looks and taste is one thing, its effects are another thing. Purple Candy is an Indica-dominant strain that is made for use at night, or at any time of the day so as long as there is nothing else to do but to fall asleep as its effects wane off.

On the lineage of the Purple Candy, there seems to be a confusion. It is widely accepted that it traces its lineage to BC Sweet Tooth and Mendocino Purps. However, there are also some references on the web that suggest this might not be true. One allegation is that BC Bud Depot denies that the Purple Candy is an offspring of their two highly popular hybrids.

What seems to be a far more reliable information we gathered is that Purple Candy is actually the result of crossing Godzilla Grape with the offspring of Purple Wreck x OG Kush.

At the onset, users start feeling the mellow cerebral high that almost immediately uplifts one’s spirit. As the physical high starts to creep in, the good feeling intensifies to happiness, and some people might even feel euphoric. Rather than getting all hyped up, you tend to chill. The overwhelming body calm results in users feeling sleepy.

One of the other popular use of Purple Candy is in boosting appetite. Often, people using this strain also would feel the munchies.

Growing

Purple Candy can be grown outdoor even in a cooler climate. However, you must be sure to avoid the frost. This cannabis would need to be exposed to sunlight but should be protected from stronger winds.

If planting outdoor is not an option, then you would be glad to know that the Purple Candy could also be grown indoor. To improve the quality of the yield and shorten its vegetative state, you could opt to use the Sea of Green (SOG) method.

One thing that you might also want to do is to expose this plant to cool temperatures just before it reaches the flowering stage. By doing that, you could stimulate the purpling of the buds that look beautiful.

Flowering Time

Indoors
Growing the Purple Candy indoor is a joy. By providing it with the nutrients it needs and having a good grow light, she should be ready for harvest in 8 to 9 weeks. Expect to have an average yield between 12 to 14 ounces per square meter.

Outdoors
She may not be tall and would need to topping and trimming, but when the buds appear, then you know it is only a matter of time before you get your hand on some 18 ounces per plant of the tasty Purple Candy. Planning is everything before you start cultivating this strain and one of the things to account for is that it should be ready for harvest in the early part of October.
