A lover of language or not, most cannot help but be intrigued by cannabis strain names; think Lemon Sour Diesel, Island Sweet Skunk, OG Shark. Despite the title perhaps swaying one’s decision-making, most people have a preferred form of cannabis, whether dried leaves or flowers, seeds or oil.
So, when choosing your favorite ‘high’, what are your criteria?
Are you driven by aroma, smell, taste, THC, or CBD measures? Are you interested in how relaxed the product makes you feel, or are you more focused on the potential medical benefits? Extending beyond its relaxing powers, scientific research on cannabis and its much-debated medicinal properties is increasing.
Today we look at another fascinating marijuana type; enter: Ayahuasca Purple.
What strain is Ayahuasca Purple?
The cannabis plant comes in predominantly two strains, that of Indica and that of Sativa. The two strains are set apart, the difference in the plant description, that the Indica is a more stubby plant with broader leaves, whereas the Sativa is a taller plant with a narrow leaf.
Reviews add that the Indica strain seems more sedating and the Sativa strain more uplifting. A third strain that requires a mention is the hybrid of the Indica and Sativa strains, a combination of the two. It must be noted that there seems to be a trend to move away from the term ‘strain’ towards that of ‘chemovars,’ a term referring to the chemical varieties, highlighting the content as far as THC and CBD are concerned.

The Story of Barney's Farm and Ayahuasca Purple
The tale of Barney’s Farm starts years ago, and to review the history of the Ayahuasca Purple seed, in particular, the story begins with Barney’s Farm receiving Red River Delta seeds as a gift (also, years ago!). Then, crossing these seeds with the Master Kush strain, bearing the brilliance of Ayahuasca Purple named after the deep purple the plant produces. Some say that Barney’s Farm had created the perfect strain!
What are the effects of Ayahuasca Purple?
A 100% Indica strain, the purple Ayahuasca can be described as a plant that gives a significant high, offering full-body relaxation. Reviews go as far as to say that the strain may be suitable for medical purposes.
The medical benefits of cannabis, depending on the type and strain, are rumored to curb fatigue, acute pain, headaches, and low moods, to name but a few ailments. Our advice is always to consult with your physician first.
When does Ayahuasca Purple turn purple?
With its papaya aroma and undertones of the tropical, it’s not the seed that tells the purple tale of this strain. The name Ayahuasca Purple may at first appear a red herring; no purple is seen until about the third month of either indoor or outdoor growth, the standard dominant cannabis plant color, green, being the overarching tone of the strain.
From the farm to the homegrown enthusiast of this Indica-dominant cannabis strain, first-time growers are often found journaling with great excitement when the first purple tones emerge visibly across the leaves and the bud.
What has Master Kush and Red River Delta got to do with it?
With Master Kush and Red River Delta as the two parent strains, Ayahuasca Purple is one with a high THC count that offers a powerful hit and a wonderfully deep relaxing, and satisfying effect. Ayahuasca Purple Seeds from Barney’s Farm are feminized seeds, harvested around September-October. One can expect flowering time for this plant at the roughly 8-9 week mark.
Growers can successfully cultivate Ayahuasca Purple both indoor and outdoor, a plant with a high yield that produces wide leaves and a stubby structure with dense buds. A high yield harvest, these CBD and THC thriving plants take about 55 – 65 days to flower, the plant structure itself becoming about 90 and 100cm tall. Flowering heavily and with dense buds, the Ayahuasca Purple strain has a CBD reading of ~1.4% and a comparatively high THC reading of ~21%.
