Officer Dick Downey's Pot Report
Your Illinois Cannabis Authority
Case: Purple Thai Wax (extract)
File Date: 03/27/2018
Case No: 0186
Method of Extraction: Butane
Type: 100% Sativa Thai Landrace, or Mexican Landrace / Thai Landrace Sativa Cross
Genotype: Thai Landrace or Oaxacan Gold X Chocolate Thai or Some other unknown cut
My research indicates that Purple Thai is a landrace strain and one of the oldest native Thai cannabis strains. It is in fact a 100% Sativa Thai Landrace strain. It seems there are two phenotypes of this landrace: One phenotype has a purple shimmer on the leaves and flowers while the other cut exhibits darker green leaves with heavy trich coverage.
Anesia Seeds offers a Purple Thai cut. When I read their own description of their genetics, I don't see anywhere mention of Oaxacan Gold or Chocolate Thai. And to point out the obvious, it would be impossible for Purple Thai to be a landrace and have any Mexican genetics. So it seems that Anesia Seeds offers a true PT landrace in which the high THC content was stabilized using "different specialized breeding methods". When it first emerged in the recent MMJ market, a cut was sometimes referred to as ‘Oregon Purple Thai (OPT)’. Legendary breeder DJ Short has developed various Thai strains, too, including his own cut of Purple Thai.
I don't know if this extract was made using the true landrace, the Mexican / Thai cross or some other current phenotype.

TIP: To learn how you can use this cannabinoids data to better your health, see the Cannabinoids Library.
Characteristics: This sample consisted of a soft, light caramel colored wax. This was a clean looking wax.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I will not be providing the specific terpene levels for this product.
This sample smelled herbal with floral notes. When dabbed, I tasted a sweet-floral-herbal combo, with an earth-herbal flavor on the exhale. Exotic and on-point.
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn how you can use this terpenes data to better your health, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: A more intense version of the flower. Dizzying cerebral euphoria that’s full of trippy energy though probably not focused energy for most. Instead, it’s a wandering, potent cerebral experience with a mild-to-moderate psychedelic element at higher doses. There's also a creeper element, too. A classic Thai strain experience in every way.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood, appetite and energy. May also help with depression, fatigue and stress (and more)
This Purple Thai wax is a very good translation of PTS’ flower by the same name.
