Canaca describes their Purps hybrid strain as having unknown origins but shares a genetic lineage with Mendocino Purps.
Canaca Purps is known for it’s frosted green buds which are a mix of green hues with orange pistils and are loaded with ample trichomes. The flavour profile of Purps is a mix between floral and fruity pine thanks to a terpene combination of beta-caryophyllene, bisabolol and cedrene. So how does this compare to Canaca’s Mango strain or Canaca’s Alien Dawg?
Purps from Canaca arrived in an industry standard white plastic container with security lid. After getting the cap off, we inhaled deeply, then went back for a 2nd, and then a 3rd. The smell was hard to gauge until the bud was allowed to breathe for a few moments. Then it became clear the smell was a sweet floral and herbal with just a very faint touch of pine at the end. Pretty close to what Canaca described just not overpowering.
Purps looks good. Not the best we’ve seen and not the worse. These lightly frosty looking olive green buds seem to lack a certain wow factor but do look delicious in their own right.
The most entertaining aspect of this process is the unique and remarkable flavours that we come across here at Merry Jade. For example, we’ve come across herbal flavours quite a few times and generally they’re good. This just may be my favourite herbal tasting bud period. It has an extremely sweet herbal flavour profile; almost like a sweetened iced-tea. You also pick up subtle notes of pine as you smoke more. The next time we seek an enjoyable herbal flavour of bud, Purps from Canaca will be one to remember.
Listed with 24.3% THC content and price tag of $26.50 for 3.5 grams, we found the high from Purps from Canaca was stronger than average but like the smell it was not overpowering. Most of the buzz focuses on the body with a light fatigued eyes sensation coupled with just enough of a light mental high to be able to allow one to maintain focus for moderate amounts of time. Overall it’s a good product at a reasonable price with the flavour profile being it’s greatest feature.
