60%indicca 40%sativa mendocino Purps, or Mendo Purps, or even just The Purps, comes out of Mendocino County in Northern California. Winning one of the Top Ten slots in High Times' Strains of the Year in 2007, Mendocino Purps began as a clone-only plant, but BC Bud Depot developed a stable cross to make The Purps seeds available.

Shatter is an extract, which is a particular type of cannabis concentrate that’s produced through a method of employing a combination of weed plant materials and solvents. The appearance of shatter is usually translucent, however, its coloring can range from a bright honeylike amber to a darker yellow shade, much like the color of vegetable oil .    Visually, all shatters may appear to possess the same consistency, but the physical texture of individual products can vary from extremely brittle to a taffy-like snap-and-pull quality. This inconsistency gives some insight into particular product’s cannabinoid profile.    Specifically, shatter that’s higher in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will tend to be sappier than a product with an elevated level of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), which can be far more brittle by comparison. At 21C, THC may be a sappy oil, giving shatter with a high THC content a more viscous consistency, whereas THCA is solid at 21C, yielding a fragile concentrate that’s easier to split apart.
