Although Purple Cream has been around for a decade, its lineage is a bit of a mystery. Some growers speculate that it’s a phenotype (meaning variant) of Purple Erkle or even a hybrid of it and Grand Daddy Purple. Whatever its parentage, Purple Cream, available at Medsource Patient Network in Lynnwood, is all indica with dark green and purple flowers and, you guessed it, a definite grape odor (OK, grape meets sandalwood). Purple Cream is definitely a strong painkiller, lasting a solid two hours in noticeable effect, and it also delivers hammer blows to anxiety and insomnia, as any good indica should. It is also a great stress reliever and is reputed to help with eating disorders. We hardly ever see this strain around (our guess is someone got their hands on a rare cutting) and we would sincerely like to see that change. Until then, get thee to this Lynnwood collective.
