      Purple Gorilla Strain Information

      A heavy body high settles in after a few puffs, releasing muscle tension and preventing cramps. It’s recommended mostly for afternoon-to-evening use because of its soporific effect, not unlike Jenny Kush. Don’t have anything planned once you partake in some Purple Gorilla. The rest of your day should be dedicated to watching movies or settling in for a nap.
