For this strain review, I tried out some Purple Berry that’s made by Hexo. It’s an indica dominant strain with a fairly small amount of THC (this one had 7% THC and 0.6% CBD, and the THC percentage remains between 5% and 15% depending on the batch). Myrcene and caryophyllene are key terpenes, and it’s definitely on the low end of the price spectrum, but I find that it was still some pretty enjoyable weed.
Packaging Details: Packaged on 07/13/2019, purchased and tested for review on 01/03/2020, exactly 173 days after being packaged.
Pricing: I purchase 3.5 grams for $19.00 at the SQDC.
I found that the colors of the bud were very nice, the nugs were of a dark purple color with some dark orange hairs and some white trichomes all over the place. There were a couple of things I didn’t like with the look though, I found that the buds were very leafy, there weren’t too many nice sized nugs, and the dryness (although that may be because of the time difference between the packaging date and the opening date, however, as a consumer, I want quality).
Very interesting aroma on this weed, it’s a spicy kind of smell with a mix of berry, I find that the smell of the nugs themselves is a little similar to Shishkaberry, although they’re completely different strains. The two dominant terpenes (myrcene and caryophyllene) in this weed give off a pretty unique scent.
Initially, on the inhale, it’s a woody and earthy taste, on the exhale, there are some subtle sweet and fruity undertones. The smoke was pretty smooth, a little scratchy on the throat but nothing crazy. I find that the terps stand out much more in the aroma, as the taste itself is pretty subtle. I will be trying another batch of this purple berry, I find that the dryness of the bud usually ruins the taste a little bit.
High 4/ 5
I enjoyed the feeling I got after smoking this, however as you already know, this section is different for everybody. I think the fact that it was only 7% THC made it even better for me, it was a pretty euphoric feeling, and although the THC percentage was pretty low, you can still really feel it. I would like to try out a little higher percentage of this Purple Berry, to really feel what the high would be like. I did have much lower energy though, after smoking this, not really sleepy but not wanting to do too much.
Overall, I think it’s a pretty solid product from Hexo, and for that price, you can’t go wrong! I would recommend this strain to beginners and every day smokers. I think it’s a great “starter” strain for new smokers, since you will definitely feel high, but the low amounts of THC won’t get you overly high/paranoid, if you know what I mean. The high was my favorite aspect from this Purple Berry strain review, but I will get another batch of this in the near future to see if the look of this weed will be better.
