Purple Express is a 100% pure-indica hybrid strain, but its specific history is unclear. The same is true of nearly every detail about this decidedly rare medical option. With pure indica parentage, this strain likely delivers an intensely physical high that is great for relaxation, pain relief, and anxiety. Like other indicas, it’s typically best used late at night or on days with few activities, as it probably can generate significant couch-lock and sedative effects. Nobody seems to know which strains were combined to create Purple Express, but the name suggests a connection to Pineapple Express, a popular hybrid. The “Purple” heredity could refer to the strain’s purple coloring or to any of a number of “Purps” parents descended from the original Mendocino Purps. A grape-like aroma and flavor are likely, though there are few reports on taste, smell, or appearance. Reports on adverse effects are likewise very hard to come by, but patients should expect the usual: dry mouth, red eyes, and paranoia. Purple Express may be found in Amsterdam, but it’s far from common in other parts of the world.
