Purple Thai is a Sativa dominant strain as a result of crossbreeding two great strains, Chocolate Thai and Oaxacan Gold. With a great amount of THC content, which ranges from 20% to 30%, this marijuana strain gives you an instant kicking effect.

Yet, Purple Thai is also an excellent choice for treating stress, pain, and depression.
Flavor and Effects of Purple Thai

Negative Effects of Purple Thai
Like any other potent strains, Purple Thai will surely give you a dizzy effect in every use and a strong psychoactive effect as a plus. This is the reason why this strain is not a good choice for those with anxiety and PSTD.
Growing Purple Thai
Many growers suggested that in growing Purple Thai, the best choice is indoor cultivation. However, in other areas, outdoor growing does well too. Between October and November are the best months for harvesting Purple Thai outdoors, and in certain parts of Europe, greenhouse growing is the best recommendation. On the other hand, for indoor growing, SOG and SCROG techniques are the most suitable to reach a promising harvest. Either in hydro or in soil, Purple Thai grows well, but monitoring its temperature is a must. Leaving this strain at a lower temperature at the end of the growing cycle changes its color to violet and even blue.
