University of Washington Purple From Private Dealer (Washington)


It’s always nice to have grower friends in HIGH places!

Submitted By:
Camera Used:
Nikon Coolpix S8100
Strain Name:
University of Washington Purple (UW Purp)
Private Party. Grown organically indoors by a friend.
Indica-Dominant Hybrid

Completely snowed on with trichomes.  Short, dark red hairs make the beautiful purple buds look like they’re a burning bush.  There are hints of darker green throughout as well.  These dense buds rocket off into spears at the top.  This particular batch looks very frosty and high grade. (9.5/10)


It has that purple smell.  It’s pungent, like some grape candy.  I can’t quite put a finger on the smell.  It has a fruity side to it, almost like an original Blackberry, but it has that floral GDP type smell too.

We’ll wrap up the smell by calling it “purple grape candy.”  I’ve smelled more unique strains for sure, though.  Nevertheless, the smell was strong enough to entice me. (9/10)


It’s hard to be really specific about this one.  Tastes like floral fruity grapes.  The smell is coming though quite well into the taste.  Again, I’ll say it’s nothing I haven’t tasted before.  Surprisingly smooth smoke.  Definitely a pleasure to smoke on. (9/10)

Buzz Type:

My eyes were lowered and reddened, and a silly smile was slapped across my face.  I felt slowed down and ready to head right to bed.  Definite couch lock.  It’s great for relaxing and sleep.

I had actually intended to Skype with an old friend the night I first picked up this UW Purp, but instead faded off into a dreamy sleep early.  She was not happy.  This is the type of stuff I’d want to roll a huge joint of and smoke it somewhere where I can just lay down with no distractions like at the beach.  There is no doubt that this is some strong smoke, though, considering I chose sleep over reuniting with an old friend over Skype. (9.5/10)

Buzz Length:

2 – 2.5 hours


I think I just have a bit of a bias toward grapes or really purple strains.  This was definitely some strong, great medication, but it just didn’t quite hit the spot for me as far as uniqueness goes.  I think most people would consider this some very potent stuff, though. I give it a solid A/A-.  –Washington

    Dude my keyboard is covered in drool. Really is amazing how 'purple' has become a description of smell and taste. I've only ever come across 3 purp strains and I know exactly what you mean, there are no other words to describe than 'purple' hahaha, beautiful
