Is Purple Weed real? Why is Cannabis purple sometimes? Does the purple color mean it has a stronger high? A greater or lower potency? Today on Lex's World I answer all your frequent questions regarding that Blue or Purple Cannabis. Fact is, Cannabis can be many different colors; orange, purple, blue, lime... due to these things called Anthocyanins ... many colors can exist in the plant world and Marijuana is no exception to the rule. Genetics are likely at play... as could be growing conditions such as low night time temperatures or phosphorous deficiency. As unlikely as it is, there could be some color additives going on too. No matter the reason, people are paying more for purple weed. And the reason comes down to supply/demand... not potency. Its more rare... thus people will pay a bit extra for it.
