purps strain Mendocino Purps, or Mendo Purps, is an Indica strain that won High Times Cannabis Cups in 2007 and 2009.
Inexperienced users, or those with a lower tolerance, should be aware of this strain’s ability to induce powerful
drowsiness and laziness. It is recommended that users keep food close at hand as the “couch-lock” effect may
be stronger than the ‘munchies’ effect. Some might also find that this strain may cause ‘the giggles.’ Negative
Like most pure Indica strains, it should be used in the afternoon or at night as users will become drowsy. For
this reason, it is a good medication for insomnia. Mendocino Purps’ mood elevating effects make it effective
chronic aches and pains, particularly those that are accompanied by movement disorders such as muscle
spasms. It is also used to calm nausea and increase appetite.
Mendocino Purps is a back-cross of a pure landrace USA Indica. As its name suggests, this clone-only strain
came from Mendocino County in California. While the original Mendocino Purps is rare, BC Bud Depot
received one in 2004 and inbred it to create seeds of the strain they called The Purps. It is often confused with
the clone-only strain and the hybrid from TH Seeds called Da Purps.
This strain generally features THC content in the teens, which can climb as high as 20%. Its cannabinoid levels
generally fall between 0.20% and 0.30% but can be higher.
