This sativa-dominant hybrid (60:40 sativa/indica ratio) leaves no doubt about its origins. Mendocino Purps, a Cannabis Cup winner in 2007 and 2009, was born in Mendocino County, California, home of the marijuana industry. It’s also known simply as The Purps, or Purps, and it’s the inbred descendant of an original indica landrace (a locally domesticated plant strain) and an unknown sativa. With THC levels reaching 22%, this is a relatively potent strain ideal for relaxation and mood stimulation. Mendocino Purps is great for treating anxiety, PTSD, depression, bipolar disorder, cancer, and chronic pain. Dry mouth is likely and headaches are possible, though most other negative effects are limited. This strain has a strong woody pine smell and a taste like caramel coffee. The bud develops a strong purple hue as it matures. The high is relaxed a happy, with a strong dose of euphoria. Mendocino Purps can be hard to find in its original form, but other varieties can be found in the Pacific Northwest, California, and Montana. It’s less common elsewhere, though it can be found on the black market in many places.
