We know, the name is simultaneously hilarious and disgusting, but Purple Dog Shit is actually a strain that's totally worth your time. While breeders have preferred to stay anonymous, this indica-dominant strain has taken the cannabis community by storm - that is when you can find it. Her genetics aren't confirmed, but many believe that this strain is a cross between Dog Shit and Purple Urkle.
Even THC levels are speculative here, with a range between 15% and 20% noted on the market. Although an actual turd wouldn't be nice to look at, these buds do bring some beauty with colors that range from green and brown to blue and gold. The smell is quite offputting as sour grapes and rotten earth make their way to your nose, yet the flavor tends to be more appealing with a sweet grape flavor.
Although this strain does have a way of bringing you to a happy and uplifted mental state, the real reason people choose Purple Dog Shit is for her bodily effects. Almost immediately after taking a hit or two, users will note a soothing buzz that progresses from head to toe, providing the ultimate in relaxation. You may find that your creative juices begin to flow more freely, but don't plan on being overly productive while under the influence.
Despite the fact that you're smoking a strain that has the word shit in it, this bud can actually make you pretty hungry and is a great way for medical patients to get over issues with their appetites. Bodily ailments are also no match for the powerful physical benefits of Purple Dog Shit, and even stress and depression are alleviated by a boost in mental joy. Depending on the specific growing conditions, some phenotypes have a decent amount of CBD which works to further promote healing and relief.
Growing your own Purple Dog Shit at home tends to be a fairly easy endeavor, as it typically does well inside and outdoors. Those with minimal space should note that plants can reach nearly 6' in height, so if privacy is an issue you'll want to take extra precautions. A time frame of 8 to 10 weeks is all that's required to reach full maturity, and you'll be rewarded with an average sized yield.
Don't let the name fool you - Purple Dog Shit is a powerful strain that you should try at least once. Those who can't get over the smell or taste may not be so inclined to venture out of their comfort zone, but the effects are well worth it. The only bad news? Purple Dog Shit is hard to find outside of Washington State, so if you do ever see it on a dispensary shelf, stock up as best as you can.
