Purple Rhino is an Indica-heavy hybrid, achieved by crossing White Rhino and Mendocino Purps. This strain features THC that is above average at 17 to 20 percent and average CBD content of around 1 percent. This herb is best suited to recreational use and select mild or moderate medical conditions. Both of Purple Rhino's parents have won awards as far back as the late 1990s.
The buds of Purple Rhino are big and noticeably purple with green undertones and orange hairs. The aroma is sweet and fruity with a lemonberry accent and it may smell a bit like skunk and fuel. One person commented that it smells like turpentine and grape juice. Others have said that the smell is multi-dimensional and cannot be described. The purple appearance though, makes this strain stand out as one of the more flamboyant cannabis strains.
Expect a high that is both cerebral and calming due to the heavy indica influence. You can partake at any time of day as this strain is not noted for a weed coma effect. Recreational users will find a lot to like in this strain especially if you're looking for a body melt.
Medical users with mild to moderate symptoms can use this weed for conditions like anxiety, depression, and insomnia. It has a strong munchie effect and may help improve appetite. You should feel calmer, more relaxed, have your mild pain relieved, and drift off to sleep with ease. Purple Rhino is not recommended for seizure disorders due to the low CBD content.
The effects should happen in a few minutes with a very heavy high that hits the head and disperses into the body. The high should last at full force for a couple hours, at which time you may need to re-medicate.
