A Humboldt Boutique Gardens specialty, Purple Lights combines the resinous pure-indica buds of Northern Lights #5 and the pungent fruit of Blackberry Kush to create a richly flavored, richly colored hybrid that ultimately outshines both of its parent strains.
As the name indicates, Purple Lights is characterized by its chunky, purple-hued buds, as well as the almost shimmering quality of its frosty coat. With layered flavors at once dark and bright, this hybrid is full of happy opposites: sweet, syrupy undercurrents of blackberry jam laced with a musky chili spice and lemony effervescence. Purple Lights delivers a similarly multifaceted high, which leans heavily to the indica side of the family without sacrificing a sativa-like sparkle around the edges.
Elevated levels of b-Myrcene — the same terpene found in bay laurel, eucalyptus and lemon verbena — makes Purple Lights a good choice for patients suffering from anxiety, insomnia and chronic pain. Myrcia sphaerocarpa, the medium-sized shrub from which b-Myrcene takes its name, has also been used in Brazil for centuries as a folk remedy to combat diabetes, dysentery and hypertension.
