Is there such a thing as a boring strain? Yes, yes there is.
It’s kind of like the dinner rut you get in at home. You have a standard rotation of meals, like Taco Tuesday. Before you know it, everything you’re eating tastes boring.
Purple Thai Flo is the everyday boring strain that after smoking through, you realize you’re going to need to switch it up with something more exciting before you die of weed boredom. Well, that’s how I felt anyway. My husband likes it.
I tend to try and find balanced hybrids that I’ll be able to enjoy – too heavy on the indica side and I’m going to bed at 5:00pm with the senior citizen crowd after watching their “progrums.” Too heavy on the sativia side and my heart is racing its way out of my chest and I’m trying to talk myself down from epic levels of paranoia. However, after smoking Purple Thai Flo a few times, I realized that there’s such a thing as too middle of the road. So much that it all cancels out and you’re living a vanilla experience in your boring ass living room.
What’s the point. So, I’m not going to smoke it again. It’s not like there’s a shortage of options around here.
We picked this strain up directly from the grower, along with a handful of other strains to try out (remember, you can grow up to six plants on your own, share with your friends, and it’s legal). Flo has apparently been showing up all over the Front Range with a bunch of different cross breeds. At this point, cannabis is like homebrewing where your friends’ American Ale can range from something like a flat Fat Tire or a bitter IPA. Original Flo isn’t supposed to be this bland (although that depends on the dispensary). Organic Alternatives has Flo on hand at the moment of this review, and they label theirs as a strong high. But, things can get muddled with the mix and match we’re seeing from a lot of growers. Purple Thai Flo is a mix between Oaxaca Gold and Chocolate Thai with DJ Short’s Flo of Purple Thai and Afghani.
I swear to god, at this point it’s like the designer hybrid dog breeds running around like Puggles and Bullwhips. Until we sort things out now that cannabis is legalized, I think we’re going to see a lot weird combinations that nobody knows what they’re smoking exactly. But it sure as hell beats not knowing anything about it and hoping for the best.
Purple Thai Flo is so mild that it’s a good first-time strain, or an option for those people who are highly sensitive. Not only does it have a mellow high, but it also has a delicate sweet citrus smell, and a really tight compact bud. I’ve smoked it in joints and vaped it in our Pax. It was “blah” either way. If you’re a regular or daily smoker, you might want to look for something else.
