Odor and Flavors
Tickling the nose with a mix of sweet and sour notes, Purple Mr. Nice freshens the air with its fruity tropical overtones of berries especially blueberries. Hints of pine add a refreshing note to its smoke that is highlighted when savored. On the exhale, it leaves an earthy aftertaste in the mouth.
The best way to smoke Purple Mr. Nice is to take it in low doses. Apart from the fact that it is impressively potent, it is a slow-starter that can take users by surprise once its psychedelic high takes effect 15 minutes after the first few puffs. When it does, however, it does not take long to understand how its lineage is remarkable.
The initial onset is marked by a cerebral high that leaves the mind clear while the mood enhances. Though there is a subtle stimulation, it does not overwhelm the mind with a head-slamming energy. If anything, it is a calming euphoria that gradually slips users into a state of bliss as it persists.
After a while, the physical manifestation of Purple Mr. Nice’s Indica effect start. It begins as a light pressure from the back of the head that slowly trickles down to the rest of the body. It is an uplifting buzz that relaxes tightness in the muscles while immersing users in deep relaxation.
Most people, at this point, begin to slow down from physical activities as laziness sets in. And, as a heaviness plants itself in the limbs, the eyes droop until one eventually closes the lids for an unencumbered slumber. For this reason, the strain is best used late in the afternoon or at the end of a long and tiring day.
Purple Mr. Nice can be quite intense when used in high doses. Overpowering the senses is a feeling of paranoia or anxiety that is especially present in people with either low tolerance to THC or who use the bud beyond limit. Because the effects can last for hours, it is recommended that the strain be smoked slow and steady.
A cottonmouth and dry eyes are a common occurrence regardless of the dosage. This is because cannabinoids momentarily halt the production of moisture though such discomfort can be soothed by staying hydrated and drinking lots of fluids like water.
Medical Use and Benefits
Relief comes to those who seek. In Purple Mr. Nice, patients definitely find comfort against the everyday burdens that plague both the body and the mind. After all, the bud has a high level of CBD of up to 4%.
One of its best use is to ward off stress through its mood enhancing high. At the same time, it temporarily appeases symptoms of mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and PTSD. In such cases, however, it is important to monitor the dose and avoid exceeding tolerance limit to prevent feeling more anxious instead of relieved. Moreover, one should consult with a health professional before self-medicating.
Though subtle, the same psychoactive compound also stimulates the appetite. It encourages patients with eating disorders or cachexia to fill the stomach with cravings and nutritious food as well.
To wipe out pains and aches, some people tend to increase the dosage a little. The higher intensity of its THC and CBD result in a numbing body high that totally relieves aches and pains beginning from the head. After leaving people in a hazy but profoundly relaxed state, users become drowsy before eventually falling asleep.
Growing Purple Mr. Nice
Purple Mr. Nice is quite a head-turner in the growing community for its striking appearance and penetrating aroma. Adding to its appeal is that it is most likely only available as a clone. Clippings from a mature plant are usually more challenging to cultivate but are fast-flowerers.
As the clippings grow, it develops into a typical Indica-dominant herb with a short stature and numerous side branches. It will need to be thinned out through either trimming or pruning to circulate air and light better in the lower nodes. This is because moisture often seeps into the crevices of a plant with thick foliage. Left unattended, it can develop into mold or mildew. As such, keeping the growing area clean, free of debris, and dry are requirements that aspiring growers will need to meet.
It thrives best in controlled settings indoors where growers can easily adjust factors like lighting and temperature. To maximize the production of terpenes, organic soil is arguably the better choice compared to hydroponics. Utilizing the Sea of Green of method while exposing the plant to at least 600 watts HPS during the bloom phase should boost its production. On average, each square meter has a yield of 350 to 450 grams of buds within 7 to 8 weeks.
Although the plant prefers a dry, sunny environment, it will thrive well in the northern hemisphere where days are generally short and the season changes. Each plant has the potential to produce 450 grams of buds per plant by the middle of September.
