Purple Skittles Strain Review

Purple Skittles cannabis flower near some actual Skittles candy

Wild Berry Skittles are probably one of the most flavorful candies out there. The intense berry flavors you can get from a bite-size Skittle are outstanding and delicious. However, the amount of sugar contained in these candies isn’t something you want to try out in high doses. Instead, what about tasting the delicious flavor of a sugar-free Purple Skittles strain?

Purple Skittles is an indica-dominant strain recognized for its amazing medical benefits. It is thought to be a cross between BC Sweet Tooth and Mendocino Purps, both heavy indica strains. Although there is no clear information about its THC content, it could be around 10-15%, since its parents do not have a THC content above 15%. You can recognize its classic purple and green buds with amber hairs, all covered by a thick layer of frosty trichomes.

Terpenes

Skittles strains are characterised for having a strong presence of caryophyllene, humulene and linalool. This gives Purple Skittles herbal, sweet and fruity flavors with a bit of berry-like notes. For this reason, consumers love the smoke produced by its dense buds: it is sweet and smooth, making the room smell like ripe fruit.

Effects

Like most indicas, a Purple Skittles strain will get your body relaxed and ready for a good sleep. Although it all depends on the doses and your own body, many consumers have reported to experience a mellow feeling and calmness. Purple Skittles is a good strain for treating pain, insomnia, headaches and P.M.S. 

Additionally, we can find some properties in the terpenes Purple Skittles contains that will certainly have an impact on your body. To begin with, caryophyllene is a molecule that is considered to be the only terpene to interact with the endocannabinoid system. For this reason, it has potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. It can also treat pain and anxiety, as well as seizures. 

On the other hand, humulene is a terpene hard to find in high levels in most cannabis strains. However, its effects are outstanding; it has antibacterial properties and has even shown to be a potential treatment against tumor growth.

Finally, linalool helps reduce levels of anxiety and depression. Additionally, it acts as an anti-microbial agent and makes the immune system more resilient to the effects of stress.
