Purple Cheddar Strain

Cheese and Granddaddy Purple are two of the world’s most well-known Indica strains. The former gained attention for its groundbreaking terpene profile, introducing the world to a predominantly cheese-y fragrance and flavor. The latter, on the other hand, is high-yielding, short-flowering plant that produces top-of-the-line buds. Apart from the crystal cover, it catches the eye with its azure and plum violet.

Both pass these attributes to their progeny Purple Cheddar. The 70/30 Indica strain has the right blend of cerebral and physical effects that cater to a wide audience. Not to mention, it has modest THC levels that range from 14% to 17%.

Casual users, for instance, may enjoy the strain to boost the mental faculties like a wake-and-bake companion. If used moderately, of course. Meanwhile, heavy hitters will find comfort in the sedating buzz that comes after taking a few extra tokes of one’s personal limit.

Purple Cheddar could also be used as a natural alternative to certain medicines. It could be used as a painkiller that temporarily alleviates various physical discomforts. At the same time, it offers a reprieve to patients experiencing psychological distress. More importantly, for the medical marijuana community, the price of relief does not come with unwanted side effects.
