Purple Cream Strain

As darkness sets in, it is time to put on some cream before calling it a night. Yeah, that is what many females do, but men can do that too.

At any rate, if a few feel squeamish about it, then how about this one – Purple Cream. No, this is not something people rub on their skin. Instead, smoking this baby turns one into a happy baby with a penchant to sleep.

We do not know much about where the Purple Cream came from. Not only is the original breeder unknown, but even its genetic lineage is also unclear.

About the only thing, experts can agree on is that it comes from a family of Kush in Afghanistan and India, and probably, Skunk.

We do note, though, that others are mentioning its parents as the Blackwater and Green Crack strains.

Although no one can confirm it, it does make sense. The former is a descendant of San Francisco Valley OG Kush.

Meanwhile, the latter comes in two varieties, one from Skunk No. 1 and the other from an Afghani Indica.

Further compounding its origin is that it appears to be a clone-only strain.

As such, it is unlikely for most people to get ahold of the Purple Cream, especially in obtaining cuttings to cultivate.

Earlier, we alluded to how the Purple Cream can cause users to feel happy. But what we have not mentioned is how it works and what else is in store. Because it is an 80% Indica strain, a safe assumption is that effects on the body that it induces.

Before continuing on to its effects, let’s take a look at its THC content. It appears that there is no consensus on its approximate range. While most has it pegged at 10% to 18% (moderate to potent), some had suggested it could be as high as 24% (an insane amount). Nonetheless, users should never underestimate its effects.

Purple Cream Effects

A few puffs of this weed are enough to send in an intense wave of relaxing sensation. As a result, stress and worries are washed away. In its place is an overwhelming feeling of happiness that leads people to giggle a bit too much. These effects are not the same as the cerebral high brought on by Sativa strains. Where the latter kicks into the head, the effects of Purple Cream are a result of the complete mind and body relaxation.

As mentioned, whether it has a high THC content or not, does not matter. Soon, most people will feel themselves slowing down and unwilling to move. In other words, Purple Cream causes users to feel lazy and often, leave them in a couch-lock. In many cases, too, its users fall asleep without realizing it.


Purple Cream has one of the better smelling aromas among all the cannabis strains. It has a sweet floral note accompanied by the delightful fruity scents. Considering that the strain is one that people use to relax, its aroma alone already sets the tone.


Users will be pleased to know that its aroma carries over to its flavors. About the only noticeable difference is the more pronounced fruity taste that is reminiscent of the tropics.

Adverse Reaction

While the Purple Cream has great benefits for recreational and medical marijuana users, it is also not the easiest strain to use. That is because it also comes with unwanted effects. For instance, experiencing dry mouth and eyes, those are normal. What is a concern, though, is that it can cause people to feel paranoid or agitated. It can also cause some to have a headache or feel dizzy.

For the reasons above, it is important to use only a small amount. It may or may not have a high THC content, but it has incredibly powerful effects that can overwhelm users. And with that being the case, the symptoms of its adverse reactions then becomes more pronounced.

Purple Cream delivers its Indica high with a sedative-like effect. As mentioned, its ability to put users to relaxation wipes away stress. And anytime a strain can do that, then it can also help in other mental disorders including depression. However, as noted in the Adverse Reactions, it can also cause people to feel paranoid or more anxious. As such, individuals who are dealing with these concerns should avoid using this particular strain.

Another benefit of the strong sedative-like traits of Purple Cream is in pain alleviation. Of course, that comes with a trade-off, where people can be left on a couch-lock. As most users tend to fall asleep, it then can be useful to insomniacs.

Purple Cream is a typical Indica plant that is likely not to grow beyond 6 feet outdoor. Indoor, growers will need to top it early and keep it short. As such, it encourages more outward growing. Combining it with the Sea of Green technique, that should help it produce better yields. It does not matter whether one chooses to use soil as a medium or hydroponics.

While the plant itself is not difficult to cultivate, finding a cutting is a hindrance for most people in growing Purple Cream.

Flowering Time


Starting at the 8th week, Purple Cream is ready to progress to its flowering stage. Each square meter of this plant under 600 watts of lighting can produce 10 to 14 ounces of buds covered with resins.


A warm climate and a little bit of work will help each of these plants produce at least 14 ounces of buds. Purple Cream should enter the flowering phase during the first days of October.
