When it comes to knocking out pain, no medical strain hits the target quite like Purple Arrow. This hybrid provides effective relief for severe pain while simultaneously inducing a sense of uplift and euphoria. Extremely well-rounded, Purple Arrow is potent without causing that over-medicated feeling of some pain relief strains. The uniqueness of this strain is complemented by its earthy aroma. Fragrant, herbal, and a little sweet, this strain tastes almost as good as it feels. When you need immediate relief and would like to stay off the couch, Purple Arrow is a fantastic choice.
About Purple Arrow
Purple Arrow is predominately Indica (85% Indica and 15% Sativa). Breeders crossed Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani to achieve a strain with a THC level of 17 to 24 percent. This strain is known as CBD-rich or high-CBD, meaning its CBD levels approach 3 or 4 percent, making it highly suitable for serious medical conditions.
This bud is pretty boring looking compared to some of its more flamboyant cousins in the cannabis family. The nugs are small to medium-sized, and the colors are muted and toned down, with light green, purple, and orange. Trichomes and resin are minimal. The fragrance is sweet and floral in the nose and finishes smooth and tasty in the mouth.
With a high CBD content, Purple Arrow may help in reversing alcohol damage to the brain, stop cancer from advancing, alleviate severe social anxiety, and serve as an anti-psychotic. You can purchase the bud to smoke, but other products are available with high CBD content such as oil, tincture, and lotion.
People can expect to feel immediate pain relief, effective for mild, moderate, and severe pain. Along with pain relief, Purple Arrow delivers heavy sedation so you might want to use it at night. Euphoria is possible as the strain does have some sativa.
Recreational users who are looking for an average psychoactive experience could choose this strain as well. Don’t expect to go out and change the world; a mellow day on the couch is more likely to happen. The couch-lock shouldn’t be too overwhelming and you could try – at least once – a strain high in CBD in order to experience the synergistic effect the THC and CBD have working together.
Purple Arrow is available in seeds and clones. It grows to about three feet tall and is sort of skinny. Flowering may occur in 45 to 60 days. A low yielding strain, you may be able to push it with selective light training, experimenting with different lighting systems. Blue lights have been shown to increase yield. Get the light close to the stem so the leaves don’t grow downwards.
Purple Arrow is a high-CBD strain that medical patients should definitely try for serious conditions and symptoms. For Rec users, it has a decent amount of THC, and the high CBD content may provide a synergistic effect that you haven’t felt before. This potent strain will drop you on the couch and leave you there, pain-free and happy.
