Purple #1 has a classic old-school Afghan aroma of earth and spice with fruity, floral and sour notes

Purple #1 is a beautiful classic purple hybrid cannabis plant. This purple variety has a really old-school aroma and taste. Her aroma is best described as earthy, tart, fruity, floral and spicy. Some phenotypes also have more chemical, piney notes. It is a powerful yet subtle aroma, not super penetrating but certainly sufficient.

Purple #1 tastes just as it smells, slightly tart, earthy, fruity and spicy. It is a flavourful strain with a complex terpene profile. The connoisseur will be able to recognise the old-school classic Afghan terpenes in this strain.

Grown outdoors on organic soil, it will have a very full and rich flavour. This purple hybrid takes you back to the 80s and 90s and the era of the strong Afghan Indica’s.

The buds of Purple #1 are purple and have a beautiful bag appeal

Purple #1 mainly has purple coloured phenotypes, but with some exceptions there are also completely green phenotypes to be found. These are usually the slightly more potent phenos which can smell just a bit more fruity and sweeter than the purple plants.

All plants can show purple hues on both leaves and buds when grown outdoors. Cold night temperatures will cause the buds and leaves of this strain to darken and develop more purple tones. The completely purple buds look the most beautiful and in our opinion also have the most bag appeal.

What exactly are the genetics in Purple #1?

Purple # 1 is the world famous original purple cannabis seed variety from the 1980s. Purple #1 is renowned for its uniquely beautiful colours and great “high”. Our original Purple #1 consists of approximately 50 sativa and 50 indica.

The indica comes from a very special purple Afghan that has been carefully crossed in the Netherlands to create a strong outdoor plant that is fully adapted to the Dutch climate. It is a robust outdoor plant with beautiful bright purple colours at the end of the flowering phase.

This strain was one of the first commercial purple varieties. Purple # 1 has been used extensively by other breeders and seed banks to develop new purple varieties. Purple # 1 is available in both regular and feminised cannabis seeds.

Purple #1 is a robust purple cannabis plant with a fast flowering time and beautiful purple buds that can grow up to 50cm long

Purple #1 is a strong hybrid cannabis plant with a Sativa appearance and impressive purple colours. This strain produces very sticky, fruity, purple coloured buds. The flowers turn purple shortly after they have started bloom.

The first flowering hairs to appear are normally white on most cannabis strains, with our Purple #1 these pistils can range from purple or pink to even dark purple.

The strain is known for its short flowering time, which can ensure a quick harvest outdoors. At Dutch latitudes she will, in most cases, be ready in the month of September. Some phenotypes are ready in early / mid-September and the longest flowering phenotypes finish bloom in early October.

She is very suitable for outdoor cultivation as well as cultivation in greenhouses. The leaves show clear Sativa characteristics with very slender long leaves and beautiful purple colours.

Purple #1 is easy to grow and responds well to a variety of growth techniques such as LST (Low Stress Training) and HST (High Stress Training). She can also be grown indoors, but was originally developed for outdoor and greenhouse cultivation.

She also grows well as a multi-topped bush and can provide large yields. If your plant grows naturally, she will usually have a beautiful Christmas tree structure. The plants are on average around 1.5-2.5 meters tall. She is a strong open-ground variety that can take a beating (and short periods of bad weather), but also does well in pots. Also suitable as a guerrilla plant.

Her internode distance is short to medium. She can grow very long buds of around 50 cm. These thick buds have a more airy character, which makes them very weather resistant, so bud rot and mold have less influence on Purple # 1.

The genetics used to breed Purple # 1 guarantee the following traits:

  • A beautiful old-school purple cannabis strain with a short flowering time and a large yield
  • A robust outdoor plant which is very suitable for growing in moderate, and usually wetter, climates. She is extremely suitable for outdoor and greenhouse cultivation. She is also a good plant for guerrilla cultivation
  • Her long purple buds are really beautiful to look at, despite her smaller stature she can still provide good yields

Purple # 1 is a hybrid cannabis strain with a relaxed and euphoric up-high. The aroma and taste are reminiscent of an old-school Afghan hash plant with the well-known earthy and spicy notes.
