Amethyst Strain

There are a few strains that truly stun users with just looks alone and Amethyst is among those. Its purple streaks and vibrant flashes of blue against a backdrop of deep green definitely makes it a standout among other buds. Moreover, it has an irresistible scent of grapes and berries that entice just about any person to take a puff of its sweet smoke.

In creating the now-famous hybrid, Zion Botanicals took two polar opposites from the spectrum. First was Sage N Sour, a tangy bud that leans heavily toward Sativa, for its cerebral high. The second ingredient added to the mixture was Granddaddy Purple which influenced Amethyst’s striking colors and Indica effects.

Amethyst does its parents proud. It boasts THC levels of 18% to 21% and induces a soaring high that is uniquely subtle at first in spite of its intensity. While it is mostly regarded as a great recreational strain for its happy high, many users from the medical community attest to its efficacy in relieving various afflictions.

    Radiating with a happiness from within, users find themselves feeling upbeat and giggly at almost everything. It is a good idea to have snacks around at this point. The gentle mental stimulation is, after all, quite hunger-inducing.

    After about an hour or two, a light pressure trickles from the temples and down to the rest of the body. It soothes the muscles by untying knots caused by tension until users are fully enveloped in relaxation. In spite of its powerful Indica effects, heads remain clear and many stay functional due to the persistent mental effects.

    In moderation, Amethyst induces a pleasant high. Too much of its potent THC can be incapacitating especially for beginners.


    Amethyst has a pungently sweet scent that is complimented by a spiciness. Broken apart or combusted, it releases a floral aroma accentuated by subtle citric notes reminiscent of berry.

    From Granddaddy Purple, Amethyst inherited a sweet but sour grape flavor. On the exhale, a spicy berry washes over the mouth and leaves a lingering aftertaste even after the last puff.

    Adverse Reaction

    It is best to have a drink in hand while using Amethyst. Like other strains, its cannabinoids interfere with the production of moisture in the tear ducts and salivary glands. Most likely, users will end up with red eyes and a cottonmouth. Apart from being mild, the dry spell is known to subside on its own but downing a glass of water helps relieve any discomfort.

    Amethyst retains significant therapeutic value due to its high psychoactive compounds. Combined with other cannabinoids like CBD and terpenes, it provides a reprieve against a variety of mental and physical health conditions.

    Among the hybrid’s traits is its happy high which stabilizes the mood and relieves the overwhelming anxiety accompanying chronic stress. In a similar manner, the uplifting buzz provides comfort to users suffering from depression and other mental issues like PTSD.

      Zion’s Botanicals pride itself in producing buds from an entirely organic system from their farmland in Washington. By doing so, the breeders cultivate products with strong resistance against problems like strong gusts of wind and heat as well those caused by moisture like mold and mildew. Because of this, Amethyst is a fairly easy plant to grow that readily adapts to both outdoor and indoor settings.

      Contributing to Amethyst’s sturdy structure are its perfectly split genes. Though it grows tall, its stalks and branches are not at all thin. Moreover, its height is fairly manageable. Those with limited space may need to trim and top the plant early to keep it short.

      In spite of its great performance under the sun, many still prefer growing their batches indoors. Apart from added protection against pests, controllable environments allow growers to adjust factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity to bring out the plant’s full potential.

      Once it hits the flowering stage, Amethyst produces beautiful buds decorated in a frosty layer of trichomes. When exposed to colder nighttime temperatures during the flowering stage, a vibrant wash of purple hues becomes visible.

      Amethyst’s seeds are only available through select retailers across the West Coast. Aspiring growers may need to specify though as various breeders have created an ‘Amethyst’ strain using different parents.

      Flowering Time


      Amethyst has an indoor flowering period of 9 to 10 weeks. Once ready for harvest, it yields between 12 to 14 ounces of buds per square meter.


      Garden grown Amethyst usually blossoms from the second to fourth week of October. It produces 14 ounces worth of cured buds per plant.
