Originating in northern California, specifically the Bay Area, Purple Jolly Rancher is a strain that has little concrete information on it. No one knows who bred it and the genetics are mostly speculative. It is generally accepted that the strain has some Jolly Rancher, also known as Route 66, in it, which is a strain that seems to be even more obscure. Jolly Rancher is a Sativa dominant strain and was most likely crossed with one of the purple Indica strains, as Purple Jolly Rancher is Indica dominant. As an Indica dominant hybrid, Purple Jolly Rancher will stay on the short side and provide a harvest that is larger than average. Not for growers new to the scene, this strain takes between eight and nine weeks to finish flowering.
Tasting very sweet and fruity, the strain is the opposite of a creeper, the first hit often providing a body high that overwhelms any cerebral effects. It is the kind of medication one should use at night, Purple Jolly Rancher will cause the extremities to go numb and heavy. Users may quickly find themselves laying down and drifting off into a deep sleep. Great for pain relief and twitching muscles, this strain may also help treat nausea and eating disorders.
