Mendocino Purps, or Mendo Purps, is an Indica strain that won High Times Cannabis Cups in 2007 and 2009. Inexperienced users, or those with a lower tolerance, should be aware of this strain’s ability to induce powerful drowsiness and laziness. It is recommended that users keep food close at hand as the “couch-lock” effect may be stronger than the ‘munchies’ effect. Some might also find that this strain may cause ‘the giggles. Like most pure Indica strains, it should be used in the afternoon or at night as users will become drowsy. For this reason, it is a good medication for insomnia. Mendocino Purps’ mood elevating effects make it effective medicine for relief from stress, anxiety, and depression. The numbing body high gently eases away most chronic aches and pains, particularly those that are accompanied by movement disorders such as muscle spasms. It is also used to calm nausea and increase appetite.
