Platinum Purple Candy (AA) Ounce
Indica Dominant Hybrid – 70% Indica / 30% Sativa
The sedating high from this Indica is perfect for a night of anxiety-free relaxation. Platinum Kush gets its name from its frosty appearance, a result of the dense trichomes that grow on the bud. THC levels vary but are usually in the 16%-18% range depending on the grading. That makes this a moderately strong choice, though poor growing can lead to very low THC levels. An Indica, Platinum Kush has more CBD than most strains available in America. This chemical is used to treat severe seizures and other conditions.
The combination of THC and CBD makes this a good strain for anxiety, depression, and pain, as the body high is deeply relaxing. This strain has a sweet, pungent smell reminiscent of fruit and a sweet, earthy taste. Platinum Kush, aka Platinum OG Kush and Platinum OG, is probably the result of crossbreeding between Master Kush and an original Afghani strain. Platinum Kush produces a mellow, easy feeling; the high doesn’t last very long, but it’s usually enough to put an insomniac to sleep. Dry mouth and red eyes are the only likely adverse effects, though paranoia is also possible. Platinum Kush is most popular in Denver and the West Coast, but it’s harder to find in other parts of the country.
Deep physical relaxation is the order of the day with this Indica-dominant hybrid. It’s probably a cross of the Canadian BC Sweet Tooth and the California original Mendocino Purps, both Indica-dominant hybrids. The body-centered high is calming and euphoric, with a boost of happiness. It can also lead to a powerful case of munchies, which makes it great for fighting eating disorders and wasting conditions. Purple Candy can also be used to treat anxiety, depression, fatigue, migraines and other headaches, and insomnia.
Use this as a nighttime strain, as it can induce powerful couch-lock. The smoke from this strain tastes of grapes and honey, while the buds smell of grapes, honey, and roses. The bud is a colourful blend of purple, amber, and green, all of it covered by dense, shimmering trichomes. Purple Candy comes with some of the usual side effects: Dry mouth and red eyes are common while headaches, dizziness, and paranoia are less likely.
