Mendocino Purps


aka The Purps, Mendo Purps, Mendocino Purps, Mendocino Purple


Whether you call it The Purps, Mendo Purps, Mendocino Purps, or Mendocino Purple, it’s pretty clear this is a Northern California strain. Originally clone-only, breeder BC Bud Depot eventually created a seed version dubbed The Purps. BC says its plant has high THC and purple tinged leaves with a sweet, fruity taste and earthy scent.

BC says it has a powerful uplifting effect, though others say it’s not for inexperienced users and can lead to couch-lock. Mendo Purps won High Times’ Strain of the Year in 2007.

The balanced hybrid grows well indoors or outdoors, according to BC, though some sources say it produces better indoors using Screen of Green (ScrOG). Mendo Purps flowers relatively quickly, in seven to eight weeks indoors or late September outside, where it can grow up to seven feet tall.
