Ayahuasca Purple

Ayahuasca (aa·yuh·waa·skuh) Purple is an indica strain (cultivar) bred from Master Kush and Red River Delta strains. This deep purple strain produces a relaxed sense of euphoria and may aid people who are managing stress, depression, insomnia, pain, and nausea.

Many discussions have taken place about the strains name “Ayahuasca,” which refers to a plant-based psychedelic Ayahuasca, a concentrated liquid from the Banisteriopsis caapi vine combined with the Psychotria viridis shrub. The psychedelic drug has been used for centuries by people to change their consciousness and reach altered states of being.

Marijuana purists have complained that naming a strain after an illicit drug can lead to further discrimination against marijuana and its benefits. Whatever your feelings about the name, the Ayahuasca Purple strain is a powerful relaxant thanks to its indica foundation.

As a 100% indica strain with high THC content, this strain reportedly provides strong body highs while relaxing muscles and leaving the user feeling calm and zoned out. The strain can provide a feeling of bliss without the constant background noise of anxious thoughts.

Ayahuasca Purple flowers contain a high level of THC at 21%. As a result, even cannabis veterans should get a powerful high from this strain.

This strain’s flowers are full of fluffy purple buds, beautiful orange hairs, and delicious mango and papaya flavors.
