Purple Thai has a tantalizing aroma of earthy nuts accompanied by a surprisingly strong chocolate-coffee scent that is released when the buds are broken apart. The effects of Purple Thai are also quite remarkable, with potent and fast-acting impacts that can be overwhelming for inexperienced users due to its high THC levels. The high hits almost instantly after smoking, with a dizzying cerebral rush that launches your head straight into the clouds on a psychedelic journey with insanely energizing jolts of motivation and focused thoughts.
Known as one of the oldest native breeds from Thailand, Purple Thai is a mix of Highland Oaxacan Gold (HOG) and Chocolate Thai. The sativa-leaning strain is said to produce a tropical fruit flavor profile and an average THC content of 24%, according to Anesia Seeds, a seed bank that sells feminized Purple Thai seeds. One pheno has purple highlights on the leaves while the other stays dark green and produces more trichomes.
