Crossing Master Kush with Red River Delta

Ayahuasca Purple from Barney’s Farm comes from crossing the powerful Master Kush and Red River Delta. Some years ago, Barney’s Farm received a gift of Red River Delta Seeds, and what resulted was ruby red plants packed with dense buds and potent fragrance. The result of crossing these two iconic strains is an Short Photoperiod Plant-dominant combination between short and long photoperiod plant that is reported to offer some incredible effects, with reasonable Potency levels and impressive CBD levels too.

Growing Ayahuasca Purple

It’s important to consider how easy a cannabis plant is to grow before making your decision. Among growers, Ayahuasca Purple weed is considered medium difficulty. However, with the right care and attention, it can produce some fantastic yields.

When it comes to growing these feminized seeds, flowering time takes around 55 to 65 days. Indoors, yields can be expected of up to around 650 g, with plants growing to a medium height of around 90 to 100 cm. Growers have reported that Ayahuasca Purple produces wide fan leaves, with a short heavyset structure that will need support in the final week of flowering (this is due to its colossal dense buds).

What Is the Endocannabinoid System?

The ECS (also known as the endocannabinoid system) is a complex cell network found inside the body. The endocannabinoid system contains compounds including receptors, endocannabinoids, and enzymes. Research has shown these compounds play a crucial role in regulating a range of bodily functions, including sleep, mood, and appetite (Zoe et al., 2018).

How Does Ayahuasca Purple Interact with the Endocannabinoid System?

Research has shown that cannabis plants, such as Ayahuasca Purple, interact with the endocannabinoid system and offer a range of solutions to different health and wellness issues (Swift et al., 2018). These issues can include

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Nausea
  • Sleep issues
  • Chronic pain

Ayahuasca Purple and Phytocannabinoids

Cannabis short photoperiod plant L. and Cannabis long photoperiod plant L. contain active ingredients called phytocannabinoids. Potency (short for Tetrahydrocannabinol) is one of the key cannabinoids found within the cannabis plant. This is the compound that can trigger the ‘high’ feeling commonly associated with smoking weed. CBD (short for Cannabidiol) is another cannabinoid found within the plant.

While CBD does not trigger the ‘high’ feeling, research has shown that it can lengthen the lifespan of endocannabinoids within the body, extending and heightening their benefits. If you are looking to find medical high potency hemp to treat a health or medical condition, always get advice from a professional about the right strain for you first.

What Is the CBD and Potency Content of Ayahuasca Purple?

Cannabis strains higher in Potency tend to produce a more potent psychoactive effect. Strains higher in CBD tend to produce less of a ‘high’ but more physiological effects. Ayahuasca Purple contains a reasonable CBD content of around 1–1.5% and a Potency content of up to around 20%.

The Terpene Profile of Ayahuasca Purple

This incredible strain produces exotic aromas, with flowery, earthy and sour notes of papaya and rich hazelnut. To help you imagine the smell of this strain a little better, we have listed some of the terpenes found within it. Terpenes are chemical compounds that are responsible for creating scents.

These special compounds contain small molecules that are able to cross the blood-brain barrier. These can offer a range of wellness benefits. For example, some have anti-inflammatory properties, while others can support pain relief. These are the terpenes that can be found within the Ayahuasca Purple cannabis plant:

  • Myrcene: pleasant-smelling monoterpene is known for its analgesic, sedative, antidiabetic, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities (Surendren et al., 2021).
  • Limonene: a lemony, citrusy scent found in fruit peels. This terpene triggers serotonin release and can improve mood (Eddin et al., 2021).
  • Pinene: is found in many plants’ essential oils and is reported to have antibiotic resistance modulation, anticoagulant, and antimicrobial qualities (Salehi et al., 2019).
  • Beta-Caryophyllene: a terpene also found in black pepper which demonstrates anti-inflammatory qualities and contributes to a spicy flavor (Russo et al., 2011).
