If you’re one of those consumers eager to try this fruity hybrid, here’s some information you might want to know about it first.

What is the Purple Dream strain? 

Purple Dream is a well-balanced hybrid. Its breeders are unknown, and because of that, we don’t know the exact Purple Dream genetics.

Is Purple Dream a head high or body high?

With all cannabis strains, it’s important to remember that everyone feels them differently. Purple Dream could be a relaxing strain for you, while it could be an energizing strain for the next person. That’s because humans have individual endocannabinoid systems that process the intake of cannabis compounds. Considering each person has a different physical makeup, it’s easy to see how each of us has different ECS. 

With that said, Purple Dream tends to be both a head high and a body high for people. Specifically, many people say Purple Dream’s begin in the head before slowly creeping throughout the whole body. 

Leafly reviewer F........7 says “A slight more sedating version of blue dreams balanced high. A little heavier, a little more body focused, but still balanced enough to get light tasks done.”

Leafly reviewer H........6 says “Great heady high followed by a pull from the land of the Purps that mellowed me out and warmed my core and extremities.”

Leafly reviewer D........r says “was mostly a head high, but felt some good body relaxation too. Great for anything.”

In all of these different takes on Purple Dream’s experience, it’s easy to see how the same cannabis strains can affect each and every consumer differently. The best way to know how the Purple Dream strain will hit either or both your head and body is to consume it in various amounts and document your journey.
