A couple of theories exist as to the true origins of the Purple Wheelchair cannabis strain. One belief was that it was backcrossed from a version of Trainwreck that was made with an Afghani influence. Perhaps the more accepted theory is that it is a cross between Couchlock and Afghani. Both theories agree that it is heavily influenced by the 100% Indica, Afghani. Such an influence is apparent to the naked eye.
The buds of this strain are bushy with tightly curled purple and lime-green leaves. They're outlined in a sticky fur of trichomes. These moist buds emit a rich pine aroma with a musky twist reminiscent of fermented grapes. Smoking or vaping this strain causes the sweet grape flavor to turn sour, leaving a spicy nip that tingles the end of the tongue.
Many users of the Purple Wheelchair strain unanimously agree that it is remarkable to help combat anxiety and depression. This is in part done by the relaxation of the muscles and the slowing down of the breath as consumers report. Such tranquilizing effects have been compared to narcotics due to the heavy concentration of the terpenes, Linalool and Myrcene. These two terpenes work synergistically together and are known most for their sedative, anti-anxiety, and analgesic properties.
Users prone to digestive problems or severe menstrual cramps might find Purple Wheelchair helpful. Reviewers have used it to calm both. Contrary to what someone would expect, this narcotic-like sensation comes with a slight surge of energy. For this reason, smoking this strain right before bed is not recommended by those who have tried it. Purple Wheelchair is a relaxing indica-leaning hybrid that can make a movie funnier, a meal tastier, or a party more fun.
Purple Wheelchair THC levels tend to average at about 15%.
