Purple Bliss is (Illegal Alien x BOGD) from 7 East Genetics:
Liked the smell of this Purple Bliss--very sweet and tropical, total Hawaiian Punch / face in the candy bin type thing going on. I kinda wanna say it smells like Mountain Dew or Mellow Yellow taste.
So when I identified my last Purple Bliss male (just popped 10 seeds), before culling it, I brought a shotglass of Purple Bliss pollen sacs from the lower meadow to my backyard garden and tagged a cola.
Figured a handful of Purple Bliss (F2) seeds will give me a second shot at finding a similar purple-flowered phenotypical expression akin to the one pictured in 7 East Genetics' photography. Of the 10 seeds I grew, none showed any purpling. But was pleasantly surprised by such sweet flavours in this one female I kept. Gave away other females and culled males.
Been smoking on this Purple Bliss last week or so too. Has a delicious candy aftertaste, but the pronounced candy terps disappear after first couple tokes, becomes more of a burnt caramel flavour.
Note: Listed as "IBL" but currently not stable. Just a F2 of a new varietal currently undergoing yearly outdoor selection pressures and selection for colour and candy smell. Just a little bit inbred.
