Appearance & Aroma
For a ‘purple’ type of cannabis, the Purple Widow flower is quite strong. It grows sturdy and highlights spectacular colours – usually displaying many hues of dark green and purple. It produces big purple, trichome-covered buds that are packed with sticky resin. Purple Widow has a fruity, sweet aroma and flavour, with distinct hints of berry. When smoked, this strain blends the heavy body stone connected with its Indica side and the cerebral or “trippy feel” given by its Sativa heritage.
Effects & Benefits
Medicinal advantages of Purple Widow involve mitigating depression, anxiety, migraines, stress, and increasing appetite. Medical dispensaries throughout the West suggest it for insomnia, nausea, pain relief, inflammation, multiple sclerosis, and tension. Adverse effects might include dry eyes and dry mouth.
The flowering period of Purple Widow is approximately 64 to 71 days when grown indoors. Outdoors, the harvest point is typically around the end of October or the beginning of November in the northern hemisphere.
Overall, Purple Widow is relatively easy to grow. It offers average yields indoors with much higher yields when grown outdoors (although usually at the expense of lower THC content).
