This BC Bud Seed Company creation often produces a very powerful aroma and requires an indoor grow set up. However, as an advantage the strain inherited traits for staying short from its parents, a clone only landrace Purple Indica mother of mysterious origins and a male Northern Lights #5 that was 25 years in the making at BC Bud. Purple Lightning is a plant that rarely breaks three feet and can be grown even by first timers. Needing only the basics to grow, this strain usually finishes within a mere 50 days. BC Bud unleashed Purple Lightning upon the world in the year of 1995.
