Purple is a generic name which refers to a subset of Cannabis indica-dominant strains.


Known for their purple colours that are triggered by seasonal temperature changes, the intense green in chlorophyll usually overpowers other colors, such as orange, red and the coveted purple, Chlorophyll tends to break down late in the season, and a pigment known as Anthocyanin is unmasked and allowed to show through. For purple color to develop upon maturation, a strain must have the genetic potential to produce anthocyanin pigments.[1][2]
