Grizzly Purple Kush
Grizzly Purple Kush strain is an indica strain created by the renowned team over at Blimburn Seeds hailing from North America. Blimburn Seeds’ originally crossed Kosher Kush, G13 and their own infamous Blimburn’s Best Purple (their in-house specialized Purple Kush) together to create this powerhouse of a strain. The most distinct characteristic of Grizzly Purple Kush, as one may guess, is it’s deep, spectacularly purple colour that encompasses the whole plant.

The powerful, relaxing high of Purple Grizzly Kush is favoured by many looking to de-stress, or those seeking pain relief.

The ‘purple’ in Grizzly Purple Kush can not be emphasized enough, putting up a good argument for being the purplest of all purplest strains. This indica strain is literally completely purple, with a small, insignificant amount of contrasting green leaves and orange pistils or hairs. A moderate amount of resinous THC trichomes envelope the medium sized buds, which prove to be fairly sticky to the touch. Grizzly Purple Kush has an intense and familiar kush like scent – it’s earthy essence is comprised of a spicy, slightly sweet and woody aroma.
Once upon a time, cannabis consumption was considered a taboo act, and unacceptable in society. These days, the appeal of marijuana is stronger than ever, and the act of smoking marijuana itself is a very common occurrence – even Barack Obama once admitted to trying the ganja saying “I didn’t inhale it, and never tried it again.” Studies done on cannabis usage in America have shown that 64% of Americans are in support of the legalization of marijuana nationwide. Lucky for us Canadians, the Cannabis culture is widely accepted and even openly celebrated. Our relaxed attitude and values towards weed has embedded cannabis as a norm in Canadian society.
Indica vs Sativa
With thousands of years of history and such a wide abundance of strains available, it is important to know the differences between indica, sativa and even hybrid strains to find out what is most suitable for your own personal needs. Simply put, indica strains and sativa strains differ in their physiological effects and their appearance. Hybrid strains are the result of cross-breeding both an indica strain and a sativa strain together to create a new strain in itself. Because each cannabis strain is so complex and different from one another, it is hard to classify the three phenotypes or variants by their effects alone.

Indica strains originated from the mountain ranges of Asia and as a result, developed many features to protect itself from the harsh environments. Indica plants are known for being shorter, and bushier, with thicker layers of resinous THC. The high of indica strains are defined by the “couch-lock” effect they have on users. Indica strains serve well as relaxation strains, or to aid with pain and sleeping ailments. The calming, sedating effects of indica strains make it excellent for night-time usage or off-work hours.
