Buy Purple Gorilla Strain Online
Purple Gorilla’s exact lineage is unclear, but some sources speculated that it could contain some Mendo Purps or Purple Rain Forest genetics.
Purple Gorilla’s flowers tend to be on the smaller side and hold a spherical formation, clinging together in popcorn-like clusters. These globe-shaped nuggets have the dense, compact structure you might expect of an indica.
The tightly-curled leaves are a dark olive green, although frequently, phenotypes of the strain also boast patches of purple, ranging from lavender to deep indigo.
These eye-catching colors come about thanks to anthocyanin pigments, which trigger their release when activated by cold weather in the growing process.
Finally, a blanket of cloudy white trichomes gives these flowers a very sticky texture and makes them appear almost icy when seen from a distance.
Smell of Purple Gorilla
Purple Gorilla’s largely purple flowers may lead some consumers to assume that the strain carries a predominantly grape aroma.
In fact, the pigments responsible for its color do not play a corresponding role in determining its flavor. Purple Gorilla is mixture of terpene compounds gives it a mostly earthy, musky scent.
That said, there are some incidental grape and cherry-like scents that contribute to the bud’s profile. Combusting these flowers in a pipe or a joint gives off a smooth, flavorful smoke that can have a bit of a peppery kick.
On the exhale, Purple Gorilla tastes like a combination of grape, citrus, and pine.
Purple Gorilla’s high typically creeps up over the course of several minutes. When it does take hold though, it doesn’t hold back, sometimes temporarily disorienting smokers with its force.
The first signs that the strain is working include a flush in the cheeks, as well as a slight throbbing around the eyes and temples.
