An Upbeat High with a Sweet, Sedating Twist
The origins of Hawaii x Purple Skunk Feminized are pretty easy to work out on one side of her lineage, but on the other, all we know is she’s the lovechild of some tasty strains and a mysterious, heavy-hitting Indica that gives this plant her gorgeous frosty coating of trichomes.
Named for her more well-known Sativa parents, Hawaii x Purple Skunk Fem boasts both the Hawaiian landrace strain and the oh-so-intense Purple Skunk in her lineage, and does a damn fine job of combining their effects and flavors.
Distinctive and pungent, the scent of this ganja will hit you hard - at first merely skunky, with that almost damp earthiness. But this hybrid is more complex than that, and her flavor and aroma both contain the sweet, chocolate notes of her parentage. These tastes and flavors blend together beautifully to bring out the tropical, citrus notes of the strain, making her particularly pleasing and hard to resist.
Leaning heavily on her Sativa side, Hawaii x Purple Skunk’s high begins in the head, clearing the mind to make way for a euphoric buzz that both hones in your focus and calms your worries. Once she’s set in nicely, this night-time favorite 20% THC strain will have your body melting into a puddle of numb, fuzzy jelly - enveloping your body in a comfort blanket that wraps you up and sedates you right down into sleep.
This exact sedation is what makes Hawaii x Purple Skunk Fem a great strain for sufferers of chronic pain or insomnia, capable of softening and soothing the body while that uplifting euphoria eases worries and stress.
Growing this strain is almost as simple as it gets for experienced cultivators - and not too hard on those just dipping their toes, either. Hardy, resilient and small in stature, keeping the environment optimal is key with this stuff, but feminized seeds do half of the job for you and you’ll get a healthy yield of 450 grams per square meter in just 8-9 weeks.

Adverse effects include dry mouth, dry eyes, and occasionally (in more extreme cases) heightened anxiety, paranoia and dizziness.
