Purple Wreck Strain is an indica-dominant hybrid with the power to impress even experienced cannabis consumers. A cross between the very popular sativa Train wreck and colorful, aromatic Purple Urkle, Purple Wreck was created by prolific breeders DNA Genetics, the producers of Chocolope and LA Confidential. With strong, relaxing body high and a bold flavor to boot, Purple Wreck is a great choice for end-of-day use. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found samples of the strain to have THC levels from 10% to a whopping 31%.
Purple Wreck is the offspring of two very popular strains, Purple Urkle and Trainwreck, and was created by Amsterdam’s DNA genetics. Purple Wreck speeds up the growth time of the usually slow Urkle, and plants can be expected to flower in 8-9 weeks. The resulting buds are dense and plentiful, making this strain a favorite of growers. Flowers tend to smell both sweet and grassy, with similar tastes and sweet undertones.
Purple Wreck Strain sets itself apart with large, well-formed flowers. These buds look like mini Christmas trees, tapering down from a broad base into a pointed tip. Their structure appears to a hybrid of indica and sativa influences — although compact and dense on the interior, the leaves spiral outward at the exterior with a fluffy texture. These leaves themselves are the strain’s real showstopper, wowing consumers with a mottled mix of olive green, lavender, and violet. These purple hues come about when anthocyanin pigments in the strain’s genetics are activated by colder than average weather. Finally, sticky white trichomes cover all surfaces of these large nuggets, makes them appear dewy and icy.
When properly cured, Purple Wreck gives off a sweet, vegetable odor, somewhat like hay. Lurking underneath these top notes are some notes of grape and berry. Grinding up these solid flowers yields a rich, diesel-like scent. As a resultWhen burnt, Purple Wreck gives off a smooth and pleasant smoke that tastes like berry on exhale with some hints of sap. Notably, any discernible grape odors or flavors are incidental to the strain’s purple hues; while its color is determined by pigments, its aroma is dictated by different compounds called terpenes.
