Origin: (According to LEAFY): Mendocino Purps, or Mendo Purps, or even just The Purps, comes out of Mendocino County in Northern California. Winning one of the Top Ten slots in High Times’ Strains of the Year in 2007, Mendocino Purps began as a clone-only plant, but BC Bud Depot developed a stable cross to make The Purps seeds available. This cannabis strain grows well both in and outdoors. It can grow 3-4 feet at harvest indoors and 6-8 feet outdoors. Flowering time for this strain is 8-9 weeks. It has medium-thick leaves and green hues that turn more purple as the plant ripens. The taste has been likened to a caramel coffee and woodsy pine.
Inexperienced users, or those with a lower tolerance, should be aware of this strain’s ability to induce powerful drowsiness and laziness. It is recommended that users keep food close at hand as the “couch-lock” effect may be stronger than the ‘munchies’ effect. Some might also find that this strain may cause ‘the giggles.’ Negative effects include dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, headaches, and some paranoia when high doses are consumed.
Mendocino Purps is a back-cross of a pure Landrace USA Indica. As its name suggests, this clone-only strain came from Mendocino County in California. While the original Mendocino Purps is rare, BC Bud Depot received one in 2004 and inbred it to create seeds of the strain they called The Purps. It is often confused with the clone-only strain and the hybrid from TH Seeds called Da Purps.

What do we know about the clone-only NorCal Catpiss?
A close friend of ThaDocta, and a prominent member of the now defunct Overgrow.com online forum community, Shabud, grew up smoking this legendary herb in the Bay Area, Northern California. The Norcal Cat Piss make such an impact on his early growing career, that it took him 15 years to finally gain access to one clone, for the exorbitant sum of $2500. But being such a nostalgic piece of Cannabis genetic history, the sum was agreed to and paid in full.
The White Widow was winning Cannabis Cups in Amsterdam as far back as 1995, and her actual birth date extends to nearly a decade before that. A well-balanced hybrid reportedly made by crossing a Brazilian sativa with an unknown indica from South India, she has both an indica-dominant and a sativa-dominant phenotype. Both phenos are usually thickly coated with trichomes, giving her a very white appearance (and, her name).
This NorCal original started the purple- bud craze that helped push several very similar (if not identical) varieties out into a marketplace saturated with Kush and Diesel flavors. Offering a sweet and fruity taste of grape, the GDP stands out in a crowd and spurred the likes of Purple Urkel, the Purps and Grape Ape. Begat from an old Mendocino purple strain, this indica-dominant plant was used early and widely by California patients’ groups and has gone into the creation of several successful hybrid strains known for both flavor and heavy medicinal effects.

￼A classic strain from the Netherlands, the Amnesia Haze was winning Cups more than a decade ago and might be considered a fixture of the Amsterdam pot scene. A sativa-dominant hybrid, her ancestry looks something like this: (Afghani x Hawaiian) x Laos x Jamaican. This combination gives the Amnesia Haze a sweet and spicy flavor with a very cerebral high.
