As you might have guessed from the name, Purple Maroc is a cross between Purple Power and Maroc. This 50/50 hybrid was developed to stand up to some rough treatment without compromising on quality.
Even though Purple Maroc is 50% Sativa, it has a relatively modest 15% to 18% THC, along with moderate CBD. This makes it a “good all-rounder” which can be used to treat a wide range of milder conditions at any time of day. As always, however, make sure that you are completely recovered from the effects before you undertake any complex activity.
In many ways, Purple Mar0oc is a very interesting strain to grow. To begin with, it’s known to be a speedy finisher. Indoors it will need about 8 to 9 weeks of flowering. This may seem nothing special to those who regularly grow Indicas, but it is actually very quick moving for a strain which is half Sativa. Outdoors, if you plant your seeds in April, you can collect your harvest around the middle to the end of August. Yes we did mean August. The further south you live, the longer you can delay your initial planting, but you really want to have your seeds in the ground by the end of May to ensure that you’re harvesting no later than the middle of October.
What makes this speed really interesting is that Purple Maroc does a lot of growing. Indoors you can expect your plants to reach at least 2 metres and outdoors they can reach 3 metres and beyond. This is reflected in the yield. Indoor growers can expect up to 600g per metre squared. Outdoor growers could easily collect the same per plant or even more if growing conditions are particularly good. One point to note is that there are actually two common phenos of Purple Maroc. Only one of which does actually turn purple and even then it’s usually hints of purple rather than extensive, vivid colour.
Overall, we’d say that if you are a beginner and have a suitable outdoor growing space, then you should be fine with Purple Maroc. But if you’re growing indoors then you probably want to wait until you’ve gained a bit of experience with more compact strains before trying this one.
The taste of Purple Maroc may be a bit different to what you might have expected from the name. It actually has a diesel base with top notes of mixed fruits and citrus, but no major hit of grapes. The aroma mirrors the flavour.
