Purple Plague Strain Genetics

Allow me to paint a picture of Purple Plague’s illustrious lineage.

Imagine a swanky soiree with two VIPs: Animal Mints BX1 and Kush Mints.

They’ve got the room buzzing, with their distinctive minty charm and bold personality.

Together, they danced and weaved their genetic magic, resulting in a charismatic offspring – our very own Purple Plague.

Remember, in cannabis, like in royal bloodlines, genetics are everything.

With such powerhouse parents, Purple Plague inherits an impeccable pedigree.

But, like any good progeny, it also boasts its own unique features that make it truly one-of-a-kind.


Time for the highlight reel!

Purple Plague packs quite a punch with a 70% Sativa and 30% Indica blend.

It’s like a caffeine shot on a groggy Monday morning – a jolt of energy, creativity, and euphoria wrapped up in a single bud.

But here’s the kicker: despite its sativa dominance, it also grants you a thoroughly relaxing, indica-like effect without much sedation.

A day with the Purple Plague is like spending a relaxing day at the beach while feeling the adrenaline rush of surfing the waves.

Aroma and Flavor

Ever had a magic berry that changes flavors with every bite?

Well, Purple Plague is the cannabis version of that!

Every pull you take offers a unique taste experience that shifts from sweet berries to earthy undertones, and then, surprising you with a skunky, grape finish.

As for the aroma, it’s like walking into a grand vineyard with lush, ripe grapes hanging off the vines, an intoxicating blend of sweet, skunky, and earthy scents that make your senses dance in delight.


Purple Plague doesn’t hold back on potency.

It clocks in with an impressive THC content ranging from 22 to 26%, offering a well-rounded high that’s engaging without being overwhelming.

For the CBD lovers, don’t expect much from this strain.

With its CBD content just below 0.1%, Purple Plague is more about the cerebral stimulation than a non-psychoactive experience.


A strain’s personality shines through its terpene profile, and Purple Plague is no different.

Dominated by CaryophylleneLimonene, and Linalool, you’re in for a spicy, citrusy, and floral treat.

These terpenes not only dictate the aroma and flavor, but they also lend to potential therapeutic benefits.

Helps With

Our very own Purple Plague strain dons a veritable superhero’s cape when it comes to offering potential relief from a variety of ailments.

To put it into perspective, think of Purple Plague as your friendly neighborhood Spiderman, swooping in to lift off the mental weight of stress and anxiety that can bog down even the best of us.

It’s the sativa-driven euphoria, coupled with a soothing indica backbone, that works wonders in calming the mind, providing a mental escape from those gnawing worries and fears.

Purple Plague doesn’t stop at mental health.

It extends its helping hand to physical issues too.

If chronic pain has been your unwelcome companion, this strain might just be the ticket to relief.

The high THC content (22-26%) is known to have analgesic properties that may help alleviate those nasty headaches, muscle spasms, or even long-standing joint pain.

It’s like having your personal massage therapist, kneading away your aches and pains.

Lastly, let’s talk insomnia.

Now, Purple Plague may not knock you out cold (thanks to its sativa heritage), but it can certainly help you relax, creating an ideal mental and physical environment for a restful sleep.

So, if counting sheep hasn’t been working for you, count on Purple Plague instead!

Growing Info

For all the green thumbs out there, whether seasoned or beginners, the cultivation journey of the Purple Plague strain promises to be a memorable one.

It doesn’t come with the diva demands of some strains; rather, it’s your low-maintenance friend that thrives with just a bit of attention and care.

One of the beauties of this strain is its adaptability to both indoor and outdoor environments.

If you’re cultivating it indoors, rest assured, it won’t stretch up to your ceiling.

With a medium plant size, it fits comfortably in an indoor grow room.

Just make sure it’s getting enough light, water, and nutrients.

Remember, the better the conditions, the more generous the yield, ranging from 1.3 to 1.8 oz/ft².

Outdoor growing can be equally rewarding.

If you pamper it just right, it can yield anywhere from 22 to 25 oz/plant.

Talk about a heavy hitter!

As for the flowering time, it’s pretty standard for a cannabis hybrid, about 8-9 weeks.

And trust me, the end product is worth the wait!

But here’s a tip from one grower to another: If you can extend your patience a bit and allow the buds to mature fully, you’re in for a spectacular show of colors.

As the buds mature, they start showcasing beautiful purple hues, a sight that would give even the most exotic flowers a run for their money.

It’s nature’s own light show in your backyard!
