I am obsessed with beautiful colors and artwork.
My mother used to take me to gem shows when I was a little kid and I saw some of the most beautiful stones in my life. I learned about opal, topaz, and aquamarine to name a few. My mother was a jewelry artist at the time and used precious gemstones as beads for necklaces, bracelets, pendants, earrings, and more. Often she let me pick out something small for myself as a keepsake. Usually I would get a quartz crystal to add to my collection, but sometimes I would get geodes made from agate. Agate is quartz with impurities in it, which accounts for all of the different patterns and colors that you see in agate geodes. My favorite color agate is definitely purple. I love watching the colors sparkle under the light. Believe it or not, but there are strains of cannabis that sometimes yield purple hues within the flower buds themselves. Finding purple cannabis buds is always a momentous occasion for me because I love how they look. Sometimes purple only shows up in cannabis due to temperature changes during the flowering cycle, but there are definitely strains that yield the color naturally regardless of temperatures during flowering. From personal experience, I have found four times as many purple buds in indica strains compared to sativa strains. It’s not always a given, but more often than not purple cannabis is an indica strain if it wasn’t turned that color from heat or nutrient deprivation. At the end of the day, I care more about a strain of cannabis’s effects over the color and visual appearance.
