Purple Bud Automatic is 75% indica and 25% sativa. It's known for its violet-coloured buds and intense, soothing stone. This compact strain has a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks, and produces good-sized harvests. It's potent too, with relatively high levels of THC. As an autoflowering strain, Purple Bud is easy to cultivate, and thrives in cool and colder climates.
Growing Purple Bud Automatic
Purple Bud Automatic cannabis seeds are a popular choice for novice growers, as they produce good-sized yields without too much effort. The strain has formidable genetics, and is a result of combining a Hindu Kush, a Purple Kush and an Afghan-Jamaican cross. This parentage is responsible for making Purple Bud indica-dominant – 75% indica and 25% sativa, to be exact.
These seeds are the automatic variant. This makes cultivation simpler, as you don’t need to worry about calculating the plants’ exposure to light. They take around 8 to 10 weeks to flower, which isn’t too long to wait for their generous harvests.
Like all indica-dominant strains, Purple Bud Automatic is compact in size – ideal for growing indoors or discreetly in the garden. Typically, you can expect your plants to reach heights of around 90 to 140 cm.
They’re classically indica in appearance too. Compact and stocky, they produce plenty of lateral branches and spiky leaves. Make no mistake though; although these plants are small, they’re capable of producing good yields, especially for an automatic.
You’ll notice that the buds tend to form in clusters. These clusters can become so heavy over time, they make the slenderer branches bend, so they might need some support. As they approach harvest-time, the buds can take on a rich purple hue. This violet colour deepens in cooler temperatures, and the sparkling resin makes them even more attractive.
Purple Bud Automatic is ideally suited to cooler climates, and can even be grown in cold regions. Alternatively, it can be grown indoors under lights.
Effect, taste, and smell of Purple Bud Automatic
Purple Bud Automatic is 75% indica and 25% sativa. As you might expect, the indica influence is noticeable in the aroma and the effect, but take note - the sativa is definitely detectable too!
Most users experience a cerebral high immediately after consumption; a sense of euphoria that gradually gives way to a feeling of physical relaxation. It’s a mellow, pleasant high, which soothes the senses without leaving you locked to the sofa.
The plants are fairly fragrant while growing, and produce an earthy, citrus-pine scent. Over time, this aroma strengthens, becoming muskier and danker. As such, you might want to ensure that the plants are grown a distance from your neighbour’s garden walls, to avoid complaints. If cultivating them indoors, make sure the room is well-ventilated.
As for the taste, the notes of earth and pine are particularly striking. You may notice a hint of tangy sweetness too. It’s a typically indica flavour, with a touch of sativa citrus and spice thrown in the mix.
