Deep Purple Bred by TGA Subcool Seeds, Deep Purple is a cross between Purple Urkle and Querkle.

The overall high from this indica is calm, relaxed, and upbeat, making it an all-around great strain for an easy afternoon.
Stoners of a certain age may associate “Deep Purple” with the 1970s proto-metal band of the same name — and with the ubiquitous intro guitar riff to their hit Smoke on the Water. Many other cannabis enthusiasts, however, hear Deep Purple and thinking of dense, colorful buds bursting with grape and berry flavor. this train is a cross between Mendocino Purps-descended, Purple Urkle, and fruity indica Querkle. Created by the prolific breeding collective Subcool’s The Dank Seeds, This product is a carefully-curated indica that offers mellow and sedative effects. Cannabis testing lab Analytic 360 has found flowers of this strain to have THC levels between 14% and 19%.
When burnt, This strain gives off a smooth, rich smoke that tastes like sweet grape and berry. This bud is best enjoyed in a joint or a freshly cleaned pipe so its flavor can shine. The stoney, heavy high creeps up slowly — within minutes, it will either leave you couch-locked or walking around daydreaming. It’s the perfect choice for evening or nighttime use, and it’s as fun to smoke alone as it is to share. Because it’s so sedative, this strain can also be a great way to treat insomnia.
Deep Purple is marked by very large, tapered flowers that adhere in a dense indica bud structure. The bright, almost neon green flowers are threaded through with neon orange hairs — which are actually pistils, meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants. As this strain’s name implies, most phenotypes also boast shades of purple in their leaves, ranging from a pale lavender to a deep violet. These vibrant colors come about when pigments called anthocyanins in the plants’ genes are stimulated by colder than average temperatures during the growing process; this interaction is similar in principle to the changing of foliage in autumn due to depleted chlorophyll levels. Deep Purple’s primary aroma has been described as a combination of grapes and sweet plums. These fruity and refreshing notes are grounded out by the musky and dank scent of freshly-tilled soil. When combusted, Deep Purple burns with a rich, lung-expanding, and surprisingly smooth smoke. On the exhale, it leaves flavors of sugary grape and berry, tinged by some earthy, tobacco-like notes. Notably, this strain’s grape flavor is entirely incidental to its purple appearance: this is because the the flower’s color-determining pigments function independently of the terpenes that dictate the strain’s flavor profile.
