Purple Gorilla, named for its violet, oversized buds, is an indica-dominant hybrid that originated in the Bay Area of California. While we can’t be sure of its lineage, Purple Gorilla is said to contain 60% indica genetics, which are evident in its potent relief of pain, insomnia, migraines, and muscle spasms. Its aroma is a sweet fusion of grape, cherry, and citrus, which brings even more allure to its purple, trichome-speckled buds. Following Purple Gorilla’s 7 to 8 week flowering time, growers are rewarded with massive yields of this highly medicinal indica gem.
“In the challenge of great purple primates, Grape Ape is the alpha, with Purple Gorilla runner-up. Not as dense but just as sticky. Tastes of earth and citrus, very diesel / skunk / chem / pungent, no noticeable grape flavor. Good anytime medication for pain, happiness and relaxation.”
“As the purple contenders come to battle royale purple gorilla definitely has a chance in taste, structure, and heavy hitting effects. As a seasoned smoker I would recommend to anyone who can handle the indica-dominance of PGO!”
