Appearance & Aroma
This strain is characterized by its large buds and iconic rich, purple hue. What is also nice about Purple Candy is its lack of pistils – or orange hairs, which some may find un-attractive. These dense flowers are covered in a generous sticky candy-like layer of white THC. The aroma and taste of this strain is exactly how it sounds – main notes of a candy-like sweetness and a grape like flavour, offset by a mild hint of earthiness.
