Purple Candy – Crash Labs Shatter – INDICA 1g
Deep physical relaxation is the order of the day with this indica-dominant hybrid (sativa/indica ratio unclear). It’s probably a cross of the Canadian BC Sweet Tooth and the California original Mendocino Purps, both indica-dominant hybrids. This strain has THC levels that can reach at least 19%, while CBD numbers are negligible, much less than 1%. The body-centered high is calming and euphoric, with a boost of happiness. It can also lead to a powerful case of the munchies, which makes it great for fighting eating disorders and wasting conditions. Purple Candy can also be used to treat anxiety, depression, fatigue, migraines and other headaches, and insomnia. Use this as a nighttime strain, as it can induce powerful couch-lock. The smoke from this strain tastes of grapes and honey, while the buds smell of grapes, honey, and roses. The bud is a colorful blend of purple, amber, and green, all of it covered by dense, shimmering trichomes. Purple Candy comes with some of the usual side effects: Dry mouth and red eyes are common while headaches, dizziness, and paranoia are less likely.
Shatter, with its flawless amber glass transparency, has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality. The consistency and texture of oil come down to different factors entirely.
The reason shatter comes out perfectly clear has to do with the molecules. Which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Cannabis Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
