Liebe Hanffreunde, diese semi-wilde Landrassen Sorte ist nicht für den Innenanbau unter Kunstlicht geeignet! Bitte nur outdoor anpflanzen - am besten direkt in den Boden. Für einen mega Ertrag mit top Sativa Wirkung empfehlen wir aber Mandala #1 und Fast N' Glorious!

Purple Paro Valley was developed from a landrace Sativa that originates from the Paro Valley in West Bhutan at an altitude of 2.500 meters. The feminised hybrid is only two generations removed from the wild habitat. In this region the landrace has adapted to the harsh Himalayan climate of extended dry spells, monsoon rain, and cold winters. Purple Paro Valley (PPV) is recommended for cultivation in northern climates up to 56°N, or where high humidity is a concern. With global warming making outdoor cultivation increasingly unpredictable this resilient landrace hybrid can meet the challenge.

Thanks to her extreme durability she can cope with low temperatures better than most modern cannabis strains. At first glance her flexible branches look somewhat fragile and willowy. But the local Paro landrace can withstand strong wind and downpours. For the most part, Purple Paro Valley has inherited this feature. Nevertheless, it is recommended to support the plants if a storm is expected and not to wait and see! The mold resistance of the pure landrace and PPV is exceptionally high. The plants are also quite nutrient-efficient. Hybridising the landrace was essential to improve yield. Growing a large multi-branch plant will enhance yield further. Purple Paro Valley is especially suitable as a “back-up strain” in unfavourable climates. For example, a few PPV plants can be combined with a higher yielding strain for the north such as our Mandala #1. In very difficult locations, or in a season with exceptionally bad weather, Purple Paro Valley is perhaps the only reliable choice. Where other varieties have already failed before, there is still hope with this special strain! For guerrilla cultivation she is also an attractive choice because hardly any other strain requires such low maintenance.

Although the mother genetics are homogenous it did not turn out this way with the current feminised strain. This doesn’t have to be an undesirable factor. Diversity is an evolutionary strategy in nature to ensure survival. For that purpose, the diversity in PPV can play an important role in securing your harvest. We differentiate mainly between the green and the purple phenotype. The purple phenotype accounts for approx. 75% per 10 seeds and is very attractive and fascinating to watch during flowering. The green pheno is shorter in height, finishes flowering earlier, and the buds are also more compact. The purple plants have long internodes, which has to be taken into account when growing in containers or a greenhouse. Late planting and pruning is recommended in both situations. In a Mediterranean or hot climate the plants grow between 1.50 (green pheno) to 2 meters in containers if they are planted in June (northern hemisphere) and left unpruned. If a moderate size is desired, we recommend timing the planting season to allow for just one month vegetative growth. During this vegetative period pruning the main growing tip once should be sufficient. Purple Paro Valley responds well to LST (low stress training). Trimming the bottom shoots further simplifies plant care and increases the strength of the upper branches.

During flowering most plants develop a delicious spicy and green lime aroma. The citrus/lime scent is typical of the Paro landrace. But there is one type of plant that stands out and we call her “candy girl”, because she smells just like sugary candy! When you crumble the dry buds they release a sweet, minty scent with a touch of hazelnut. The green phenotype tends towards lavender. The terpene linalool is responsible for the lavender scent and enhances the sedative, sleep enhancing effects, as well contributing to pain relief. Some of the purple plants can also smell like black tea, but the smoke still leaves a fresh, minty aftertaste on the exhale. PPV hash oil has the fresh, sweet, balsamic aroma of Himalayan cedar wood and has tested at 27,5% THC. The high is predominantly very relaxing or couch lock. It’s suitable for winding down, as a sleep aid, great to relieve hyperactivity and nervousness.

Purple Paro Valley rocks!

Growing in Michigan can be humbling. Night time fog during the summer and heavy rains on your maturing buds in the fall. I have finally wised up and now use Mandalas outdoor guide. PPV gives large quantities of mildew free buds that work great to control pain. Highly recommend.

Beautiful Plant

Grew a purple pheno at 37N in a 10 gallon pot. She jumped up to 7' tall with long, lanky branches by midsummer. I had no issues with mold or pests the whole season. The flowers were a stunning purple and blue amid a backdrop of light green leaves with an aroma of candied limes and a floral musk. High is relaxing and adds a sort of weightlessness to the body, but this plant is the most visually augmenting strain I have tried. My eyes tell me I am on a half eighth of mushrooms, but my mind and body are clear and relaxed.

This variety has been a consistent performer outdoors at 50 North since it's release some years ago. You will need to use quite a few sativa training techniques or you will have to grab a ladder for your harvest! As mentioned by the other reviewer here there are basically two types that show up, purple or green. I find the green one to always be the fence breaker ;), she has crazy compound branching and will put on huge overnight growth when conditions are right so get out your pruning shears and heavy duty twine. The purple types are often a little better behaved but will benefit from shaping and pinching out.
Although these Bhutanese beasts go to the late end of my season they can really handle some poor conditions, like our inland fogs and exposure to high winds and rain. You will need some staking and pay attention to airflow through the canopy however, no flowering cannabis plant is totally weatherproof.
All this vigour in PPV means a bit of work but your efforts are amply rewarded in flowers! No super dense nugs here but ample weights through sheer biomass. I tend to make hash from my plants and often produce something similar to some of the high quality Lebanese that used to get around a few decades back, a wonderful treat that keeps me smiling through the year.
Highly recommended variety for anyone who has a less than perfect climate, one or two of these make a beautiful addition to any outdoor garden.

Purple Paro Valley

Purple Paro Valley (PPV) this is an odd duck. First of all note the elevation it grows at in Bhutan. If it grows there it can grow anywhere were my thoughts. From my grow 3 years ago, I had 2 distinct pheno types; one producing small purple buds, the other, well tell ya bout that in a moment.
Both phenos have long internodes and are defiantly "sativas". The girl with the purple buds had bright purple stems as well. The reason the buds were small was do to my tyro efforts as a grower at the time. The buds were a trimmers delight. The Other gal was another story. First off let me say when you grow PPV by all means take the advise and remove the lower branches. This female was very stretchy in the internodes as well, and had deep purple stems like the other. Now here is the kicker. (Disclaimer: This is NOT a hippie story, and I promise you it is a factual account, skepticism gladly appreciated). When mature at the end of September after being started in a makeshift greenhouse around tie ides of March, the finished plant was 6 feet tall and 32 feet in diameter. For real. The "buds", 3.5 dried lb of them were very loose, lime green, looked like foxtails and had no bag appeal at all. It was some of the absolute best smoke we produced that season. 2 pounds were made into shatter,, and the rest was personal stash. The purple buds although small, had Great bag appeal, and had the same wonderful buzz. The claimed THC for this strain is 8.7 to 11 %? I call Bullshit on that lol.
This year i have PPV in my roster in a 300 gallon grow bag. I have passed the seeds out to friends and family and we see what we get this season. Recommended!

Pretty pleased

Only started 1 PPV so far because of limited space in grow spot and other Mandala strains on the go too but so far so good! The seedling came up after just a couple of day's and looks good. Unfortunately I put it a little too close to my grow light during it's first few days of life (noob mistake) but it's recovering quickly and hasn't slowed it's growing speed as far as I can tell. Can't wait to try its flower when it grows up.
