Reviewing hemp strains is always a challenge because whether you are smoking Purple Gas or Pineapple Haze, the effects are known to be very different based on their genetics and terpenes. However, strains (more accurately called "varieties") also have very different effects based on the person. We all have an endocannabinoid system, but just like our brains and nervous systems, each person's endocannabinoid system is wired a little differently.
There are many factors that influence how a person will experience a strain, so it is important to understand that reviews reflect individual experiences. Another thing to keep in mind is that retail hemp and CBD products are not intended for medical purposes. While some people may speak to health benefits, these should not be taken as a medical claim. With that in mind, here is what you may or may not experience with the Purple Gas hemp strain.

Purple Gas Hemp Buds
Purple Gas takes its name from its chunky purple and dark green floral buds. The hemp buds are drier and dense and are sticky due to the strain's high resin production. The best way to experience hemp flower is to use a dry herb vape that will allow you to taste its full terpene profile.
Purple Gas Hemp Flower Genetics
Breeders created the Purple Gas hemp variety by crossing the hemp strains BaOx and Therapy. Some people would consider it to be an "indica hemp strain," but there actually is not such a thing (all indica plants by definition are high THC cannabis varieties). A more accurate description is to say that Purple Gas has Hindu Kush heritage which is common to relaxing varieties of cannabis that tend to have floral terpene profiles.
The origins of the Purple Gase parent strain Therapy are largely unknown. Parent stain BaOx is the source of the Hindu Kush genetics. To create BaOx, Otto II was crossed with an inbred version of Hindu Kush. This crossing is how breeders can change a marijuana plant into a hemp plant by selectively breeding it to produce high amounts of CBD instead of THC.
Purple Gas Hemp Strain Review
Before you buy hemp flower, you may want to read the Plain Jane Buyer's Guide to learn more about the different products that are offered and what you can expect.
Purple Gas has a pungent smell profile that features sour gas and a hint of earthy pine. The flavor of these hemp buds is different though, it is sour, herbal, and floral with just hints of pungent gas. It is very much what you would expect from a variety with Kush heritage mixed with gas and is overall very pleasant.
Hemp Strain Effects
Plain Jane reviewers suggest it for daytime use and suggest it may ease pain and anxiety without sedation. My personal experience with Purple Gas was similar. I found that it was mellow and relaxing without any "heady" feeling or buzz. This is ideally how a calming variety is experienced, but you may feel differently and that is normal.

Purple Gas Potency and Lab Report
The CBD potency of Purple Gas from Plain Jane is approximately 18.7%, making it a high-CBD hemp strain. This hemp strain also features minor cannabinoids like CBC and CBDV for a full-spectrum experience. Purple Gas has less than 0.3% delta-9-THC, but it does have 0.6% Total THC which means that it may not be acceptable in all 50 US states (follow that link to find your state to check).
Purple Gas is a great all-around high-CBD hemp strain that is great if you are looking for a calming CBD experience without sedation. Individual experiences may vary, but most find this variety of hemp to be a very enjoyable smoke with a flavorful terpene profile. You may want to try this strain in the evening first just to make sure that it does not make you feel sleepy if you plan on also using it during the day.
