      Amethyst Strain Information

      The Amethyst strain is a 50/50 blend of indica and sativa strains like the classic White Widow. This makes it ideal for activity and not too heavy, even with 16% THC content. It is a combination of Granddaddy Purple and Sage N Sour strains, giving it a balanced flavor and profile of effects. There’s just enough indica to add a calming effect without losing the energy of the blend, making it similar in effect to Runtz.
