There's a bit of heat coming down on Purple Tide, as this Botanica Farms strain may or may not be as it seems. To us, she's just fine as is, with an indica-dominant set of effects thanks to the cross between OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple. If you don't have much on your agenda and want to enjoy a hazy, fun experience, this bud's for you.
A bit on the stronger side of things, Purple Tide weighs in with a high of 25% THC, making this bud better for more experienced users. Nugs are round and pretty heavy, featuring purple undertones and bright orange pistils amongst small amber colored crystals. The flavor and scents this strain brings are nothing short of awesome, with an herbaceous berry tone that includes hints of tang. Think of it as a refreshing dessert after a delicious dinner.
The Purple Tide high hits strong and fast, so make sure you have yourself settled before taking a toke. Initially, a super strong sense of haziness will envelop your brain, making it difficult to focus on any one thing no matter how hard you try. Eventually, this does transition to a more uplifting and happy feeling that brings with it a slight sense of energy but don't expect to start tackling your to-do list anytime soon. Coming down feels as if you're wrapped in a fuzzy warm blanket, and in many instances, users want to fall fast asleep.
Great for addressing a myriad of medical issues, Purple Tide can help with both mental and physical concerns. Your mind becomes so uplifted and hazy that it's hard to feel any anxiety, stress, or depression during your high, making this a great bud to sort of $$zone out$$ with. With her potent THC levels and sedative qualities, both pain and instances of insomnia are also handled with just a few hits.
Despite having such well-known parents, Purple Tide is really hard to find when it comes to home cultivation. Searching for clones or seeds is like an exercise in futility, and even locating the strain at your local dispensary may prove hit or miss depending on where you live. Ultimately, it's best to dream about this gal but not fall head over heels right off the bat.
Those who are lucky enough to enjoy her effects will no doubt keep Purple Tide in their stash on those days when they just want to say $$to heck with it.$$ Life can throw us some pretty tough punches at times, and if you want to check out for a while and experience some other fun sensations, this strain will be your new ride or die.
