Purple Kush Description: The SR-71 cut is thought to be a very similar to Purple Urkle (possibly a hybrid) and has more of the typical “purple”/hashy grape flavor — it was passed most commonly by the SR-71 (now Blue Sky) Coffeeshop in the “Oaksterdam” section of Oakland, CA and may be Purple Afghani x Hindu Kush. The Garberville Purple Kush is most notably held by Swerve of Cali Connection Seeds fame and tends to grow with some foxtails and has more of a straight-up Kush taste/smell with hints of the “purple”. Kyle Kushman’s Las Vegas Purple Kush was claimed in a New Yorker article to be a special Purple Indica x Northern Lights find, but many have since claimed it’s an S1 Bubba Kush of some kind due to the dark flavors present. And finally, many old-school people claim that none of the famous clone-only PK’s around are in fact the original Purple Kush, which is said to be a very special Purple Pakistani variety that was found in the late 70’s or early 80’s. As you can see, the history of a strain that’s been renamed several times and has several legit versions floating around gets very murky quickly. Lineage: Purple Afghani x Hindu Kush (one version — see description for more info) Story: See above. The SR-71 cut was originally named “Ultraviolet” by its original grower in Oakland, CA (credited as “K” from Trichome Technologies according to SR71’s catalog). Aroma: Pungent, with notes of “purple” (incense, perfume, musky grapes), and the spicy Kush end of the spectrum as well. The SR-71 and Garberville cuts are more “purple” in both flavor and smell compared to the Kyle Kushman/Las Vegas Purple Kush. Flavor: Much like the smell, the flavor is a dark fruity musk with a bit of sweetness at times — a great blend of the typical purple flavor and traditional Afghani/Pakistani Kush varieties. Qualities: Eminently relaxing and rather potent, Purple Kush is definitely in touch with its Afghani-Pakistani roots. Coming on with a slight rush of energy, that subsides quickly and leaves the user with a floaty, highly medicated body experience that makes aches and pains as well as anxiety/stress melt away. Purple Kush is also known for being a long-laster, normally going out to the 3 hour mark. Recommended highly for body pain, muscle relaxation, mood elevation, appetite stimulation, and sleep aid at higher dosages. Grow Medium: Grows well in soil or hydro — they all have fairly strong yield considering the possible Urkle lineage and traditionally slow vegetative growth of purple strains. Cooler temperatures at night and a longer flowering time will help to bring out the purple coloration to a higherdegree.
