Users describe the strain’s high as having an immediately uplifting euphoric head high that leaves you completely pain-free and slightly introspective.
Unlike some hybrids that start off with a disorienting head high that melts into a slow sense of calm, it eases you straight into physical relaxation. Although there may be some mental effects, they have more of a psychedelic, distorted nature than a cerebral one. Smokers may appreciate the calming effects of music or of tactile surroundings.
The perma-smile and heavy body stone that come with Purple Kush definitely call for nighttime enjoyment of this indica knockout. This strain can also effective as a medication. Its powerfully sedative effects can blunt some symptoms of anxiety and depression. It can also be surprisingly effective in relieving pain — both situational, like the aches that set in after a workout, or chronic, like the nerve-related pain that comes with cancer or fibromyalgia. In large enough doses, it is also a great way to treat entrenched insomnia. The strain’s high is said to have an average duration of 2 to 3 hours.
