As we know that purple buds are more exotic and attractive to cannabis consumers and that many consumers claim to experience more potent effects from purple buds. But do you know how to grow purple weed? Here are some tips might help.

Adjust the temperature
For those seeking to bring out the deep purple hues of certain cannabis strains, adjusting temperatures may be beneficial. By providing a stable temperature of 25°C during the day, then lowering it to 20°C at night, you may be able to bring out the vibrant colors of these varieties. It is best to use this method nearer to the end of the grow cycle, as earlier implementation could reduce yield.

Select the right grow light
It seems that purple varieties of cannabis thrive in direct sunlight. The intense and focused light helps to bring out the anthocyanin molecules that give these strains their unique coloring. The exact mechanisms of this are not yet fully understood, but growers have found that it is effective.
Being equipped with the newest spectrum, HortiBest's Jellyfish-2550 LED grow light is verified to have great help in the color, quality and the total yield of cannabis. The color of the plants is more colorful and the buds that under Jellyfish-2550 is 10-29% larger than that under other brands' lights. Growers can harvest up to 3.5lbs per light.

PH may play a part
It is widely accepted that pH can play a part in determining the color of cannabis plants. In species of plants containing anthocyanin, acidic conditions (<7) are known to bring out red pigments, neutral (7) for purple, and alkaline (>7) for green-yellow. However, growing cannabis does not always follow this rule. Despite the preference for acidic soil, cannabis rarely turns out red. And when purple weed is grown, it is often not in neutral soil either. Further study into this phenomenon may help to better understand the role of pH in cannabis coloration.

Choose the right genetics
Choosing the right genetics is key if you want to grow purple weed. Many strains simply can't exhibit a purple coloration, no matter what you do. On the other hand, there are some strains that are almost guaranteed to turn purple. When it comes to getting the purple hue you want, selecting the right strain is the most important factor.

Here's some of the best purple cannabis strains include:
  • Purple Haze
  • Purple Kush
  • Purple Trainwreck
  • Granddaddy Purple
  • Blueberry Kush
  • Blackberry
