The Strain – Purple Candy Cane
The sweet scent of peppermint and oranges tingle the nostrils when smelling this beautiful flower. Breeder Diggy of Home For Stunners Farms created this complex hybrid in 2020 combining a variety of unique strains. It all started with a very special pheno of Lavender and Bubba Kush.
From there it was then crossed with a Blue Moonshine Agent Orange plant and finally mixed with a Blue Dream Hawaiian Haze male to create what is known as Purple Candy Cane.
This sativa dominant strain hits you fast with a comfortable head high and an overwhelming feeling of happiness. This exotic strain has a beautiful look from the purple stalks to the colorful resin glands. Strong flavour, intense aroma and high levels of cannabinoids bring this strain to the top shelf. This is the type of dank that any connoisseur would enjoy.
My first experience with Purple Candy Cane was like walking through a pine forest on Christmas morning chewing on a piece of ribbon candy. This wasn’t your normal weed; this was Green Dope. The blending of genetics used to create this strain was a true work of art. Combining terpene profiles from all across the chart made this strain very appealing. I have always been a big fan of both Bubba Kush and Lavender so right away I was intrigued with the lineage.
In addition, the compliments of Agent Orange and Blue Moonshine expanded the terpene profile bringing this strain further out of the box. With this amazing creation taking form it was then pollinated with a male Blue Dream Hawaiian Haze to complete the final transformation. “We have always grown out a lot of strains every year and only kept the really good ones that worked out well” – Mark. Purple Candy Cane was one of the winners that seemed to grow perfectly and produce some serious flowers. First time I saw the Purple Candy Cane I was extremely impressed by the looks. Grown outdoors under full sun these flowers glistened like a golden nugget and had perfect structure. The buds were surprisingly big for being a sativa dominant strain and the resin production was immaculate. For me the icing on the cake was the smell.
A delicious mixture of fruit and peppermint candy canes filled my nose as I opened the jar. Inhaling the smooth smoke from these perfectly cured flowers was the cherry on top. Harvested the previous year these buds still looked and tasted so fresh. The flavour was unique and very powerful. A blanket of terpenes covered the taste buds and lingered on the tip of my tongue. My mouth was watering.
