With a sativa/indica ratio of roughly 55:45, Purple Ice delivers a heady cerebral high thanks to its sativa genes. The effect is intensely euphoric and happy, with a spark of creativity. It’s a great strain any time of day, with subtler, lazy indica effects that can induce sleep. Purple Ice can be used to relieve the symptoms of anxiety, depression, mood disorders, insomnia, migraine headaches, nausea, and chronic pain, among others. THC concentration has been measured at more than 18%, making this a relatively potent medical strain. CBD levels, on the other hand, are very low, less than 1%, too low to recommend this strain for patients with seizure disorders or other conditions that respond to CBD. Purple Ice smells and tastes of sweet berries, specifically blueberries, as well as flowers. Cottonmouth is the most common adverse effect, while headaches, dizziness, dry eyes, and paranoia are less likely. Purple Ice is typically found only on the medical markets of Arizona and Oregon, though it likely appears elsewhere on the West Coast. It’s not a frequent option on the black market, either.
