Sunsets are a treasure and a blessing from God. Similarly, the Purple Sunset strain is also a gift from God, not only because it grows out of the ground, but because of the wonderful aroma, taste, and pleasurable high it brings.
Created by Ethos Genetics, Purple Sunset’s lineage derives from a rich combination of Purple Punch, Mandarin Sunset, and Mandarin Cookies. As the name implies, this indica dominant strain is the perfect choice for those who want to wind down and bathe in a full-bodied, relaxing, vibe.
With a relatively modest THC level, users will experience a gentle, slightly euphoric lifting of the spirits as the high washes over them, releasing anxieties and worries as your muscles simultaneously soften and relax, making it an ideal strain for pain relief. One Allbud reviewer put it aptly, saying Purple Sunset is “my #1 daytime pain and mood elevation strain. Super relaxation without total sedation. If I’m tired late in the evening it can bring on a nap. It meets you where you are and improves my day if I don’t consume too much.” Or, as Wikileaf proclaims, “Purple Sunset is the plant version of a multicolored sky, exploding in floral citrus flavors that can take on your daily stress like a champ.”
Well, when you put it like that, twist one up!
Perhaps the best part of Purple Sunset is its aroma and taste. Purple Sunset has a slightly sweet, fruity taste with light floral and citrus undertones, complements of its primary terpene, Caryophyllene. The taste parallels the aroma, though with an added spicy earthiness, particularly on the exhale. Moreover, Sunset Purple is a sight to behold. Large, minty-gree buds are adorned with whispy amber hairs, a deep purple overcoat, and tiny trichomes.
So, as long as we are going down the pleasure purple road, why not check out another indigo aural treasure? I’m speaking of the band Deep Purple, specifically their album Deep Purple in Rock (1970), their fourth, and arguably best album.
Though it is often overshadowed by Machine Head (1972), Deep Purple in Rock is more original, powerful, and overall balanced than Machine Head. Punchy and upbeat, Deep Purple in Rock delivers a mixture of catchy innovative melodies grounded in more traditional blues and rock riffs, demonstrating why Deep purple is considered an original heavy metal band.
