The outcome is one of the most coveted purple strains in the world, as well as a great producer.

Scent: Mendo Purps has that classic “Purple” aroma, which fills the nostrils with the sweet fruity smell of zinfandel grapes with a light piney tone that carries. The scent is quite aromatic and will smell out of its bag. Undertones of skunk compliment the piney overtone, as this herb stays in the nostrils, and makes the mouth water.
Taste: A complex blend of grapes, hash, skunk and pine hit the tongue, immediately cleansing the palate. This intense medley of flavors lingers on the tongue and can be tasted hours after smoking. An intense artifricial grapey flavor overrides all of its accompanying flavors and coats your mouth like a grape flavor jolly rancher. The exhale is mostly piney and skunky, with hashy undertones, while the inhale has grapes written all over it. One of the best tasting purples in the game hands down.
Effect: Mendo Purps provides a nice relaxing effect that is known to give serious couchlock and a severe case of the munchies. This herb is great for an appetite stimulant, as well as muscle relaxer and pain killer. A great indica that should be enjoyed at night time because of the sleep inducing effects. Great bud to smoke at the end of the night.
Strain Background: Mendo Purps is a legendary strain in California, and while the cut is hard to find, the bud itself can be found on the shelves of many dispensaries. First acquired in 2004 by B.C Bud Depot, Mendo Purps was inbred to create seeds so everyone can enjoy this terrific strain.

Mendo Purps has all the top shelf qualities of a true winner and is hoarded by the growers who have kept her for years. Some true fire that will make believers out tokers who hate on purples!
