About Purple Crunch Auto CBD
Purple Crunch Auto CBD is a strain whose name is a mouthful, but its dense purple buds are even more so. Flowering in around 50-55 days, this fast-growing, pineapple and pine-packed sativa is a feast for your eyes and tongue. The growing difficulty is listed by most sources as “moderate,” so keep in mind your experience level if you plan on growing Purple Crunch Auto CBD (sometimes listed as “Auto Skunk 47”). It’s a hybrid between Purple Kush, Dynamite OG, and Swiss Dream Auto Rose, so there’s a lot to unpack in this long-winded little beauty. The low CBD levels comes from the Swiss Dream Auto Rose as well as its dark purple color.
This strain’s genetics stretch back into unknown territory, where strains like Hindu Kush and Purple Afghani were mingling with local Ruderalis landrace strains and other unknown elements. Though its parents are well-known, the whole genetic history is shrouded in some compelling mystery. The breeder listed for this strain is the HLW Seedbank, which stands for “hemp like weed,” based originally out of Italy and now throughout Europe.
The Purple Crunch Auto CBD plant grows in dense buds that are long in shape and dark purple in color, mixed with a dark, olive-green undertone. The trichomes are chunky and white and lay thickly over the buds. We mentioned that the strain is moderately difficult to grow – this is mostly because the plant requires cool temperatures compared to other strains, around 65-75 degrees, which is more difficult to maintain in outdoor growing situations.
GROWING TIP: Other than the controlled temperature, one thing to keep in mind is that this strain requires a lot of feeding, especially during its vegetation phase and as it progresses to flowering. We think it got this trait from Purple Kush, but regardless of where it came from, the result is a strain that loves its food!
The flavors in Purple Crunch Auto CBD favor the tangy-sweet side of things, with an onset of sweet earth and pine progressing to a tangy herbal flavor that spreads easily throughout your body and mind. The strain’s ability to relax and calm your work-weary mind makes it easy to recommend for the evenings when you have time to relax and vegetate and enjoy yourself.
Some users have reported dry mouth and eyes on this strain, as well as feelings of paranoia, which isn’t surprising considering that the strain has THC levels in the mid-20s. As always, dose to your experience level with Purple Crunch Auto CBD. Since this little powerhouse takes a while to manifest fully, take it slowly. It’s an enjoy-yourself strain, after all!
