Very large purple buds with an unique taste and smell, Purple Power was developed to grow well in northern climates. It is a very heady plant and can be cultivated in colder or wetter climates. Purple Power was developed from Early Dutch Skunk and Thai Haze varieties. The buzz is uplifting and plants get more purple in cooler climates.
In the late 1980s, the famous import purple strains were very popular to smoke but would not grow as well in the northern European regions. Purple Power was developed so the qualities of the purple strains could be cultivated successfully in cold and wet climates.
Purple Power has a mild but distinct sweet and sour smell, like a sour candy. The taste is tropical, and sweeter than the smell. Purple Power smokes mild and has little expansion. The buzz is clear and upbeat. Many heads like to toke Purple Power during the day, since the high leaves them happily buzzd, but still awake and functional.
