Purple Bud is, as its name would suggest, a member of the strikingly-coloured Purple family of . Purple Bud was created in Oregon where, along with California, there are many other strains displaying attractive colouration such as Purple Akala, Purple Oregon Sativa and, perhaps the most well-known of all, The Purps. These Purple strains are popular not only for their colourful appearance but also for a fruity flavour. Some of the US strains show pink and violet whereas those that have been developed in countries such as The Netherlands can be almost black due to the effect of a colder climate.
Purple Bud shows distinct similarities to Skunk #1 in structure and growth pattern. Like Skunk #1 it is very easy to grow and has a flowering time of 9 weeks making it a good choice for outdoor cultivation in higher latitudes where it will be ready to harvest during the first half of October. It has a very nice cerebral effect with a potential production of 20%.
