3rd Coasts Pure Michigan Description

Pure Michigan stands out as one of the strongest cannabis strains available. Adding to her unusual potency, Pure Michigan also exhibits rather rare flavors that may cause some division among cannabis connoisseurs. Discover everything you need to know about this cultivar below, including her genetic background, effects, and uses.

History of Pure Michigan

Pure Michigan emerged from a collaborative breeding project between ThugPug Genetics and 3rd Coast Genetics. As you can probably guess from the name of this cultivar, both of these breeders hail from the great American state of Michigan.

ThugPug Genetics gained a reputation in the United States and elsewhere for their potent and unique varieties, including the likes of Peanut Butter Breath and Meat Breath. Likewise, 3rd Coast Genetics has also turned many heads with their artful approach to cannabis breeding. After putting their experienced minds together, the breeders managed to tease out a massive THC content of 29% in Pure Michigan. The sheer psychoactivity of their creation quickly attracted many keen growers and smokers, helping this cultivar become massively popular in a short window of time.

Genetic Lineage of Pure Michigan

So, how exactly did breeders at ThugPug Genetics and 3rd Coast Genetics create such a potent progeny? Discover the genetic background of Pure Michigan below.

Also known as Oreo Cookies, Oreoz played a big role in the potency of Pure Michigan. As the indica-dominant offspring of parent cultivars Cookies N Cream and Secret Weapon, she possesses an average THC content of 28%. It goes without saying that it only takes a couple of hits to experience everything that Oreoz has to offer—a deeply stoning high that reddens the eyes and relaxes the muscles. Given its soothing effects, many medical marijuana users are fans of this strain. Effects aside, this variety also offers moreish flavors of vanilla, coffee, and subtle hints of tobacco.

Mendo Breath is an indica-dominant hybrid descended from parents OGKB and Mendo Montage. Created by Gage Green Genetics, this variety clocks in with a THC content of around 20%. While somewhat mild compared to Oreoz, Mendo Breath passed down a wealth of delicious terpenes to Pure Michigan, along with several other desirable traits. Mendo Breath became popular in large part because of its potent flavors of caramel and vanilla—tastes that become particularly apparent when using a vaporizer. Overall, this strain produces a moderately potent high that helps to bust stress and promote relaxation and sleepiness.

The breeding duo that created Pure Michigan harnessed these parent genetics to create what would become one of the strongest strains available. Following several crosses, they stabilized a reliable phenotype and released the indica-dominant hybrid to market.

Physical Characteristics of Pure Michigan

Pure Michigan displays a quintessentially indica growing pattern. Plants are medium in height but extremely bushy—the result of robust lateral growth and close branching. While her canopy requires frequent defoliation to allow for proper light penetration, this morphology lends itself to stealthy growing operations.

Regarding flower structure, this strain produces dense and compact colas laden with sugar leaves. However, under some growing conditions, Pure Michigan will produce larger but more airy flowers. Although bigger, they’re less dense and look less impressive after trimming and drying.

Pure Michigan buds are considerably frosty. Their massive THC content wouldn’t be possible without such an unusual trichome density. Together, these glands work overtime to churn out large quantities of THC and accompanying aromatic terpenes.

Pure Michigan starts out as a deep green shade. During late flowering, however, plants start to develop hues of orange and purple.

Properties and Effects of Pure Michigan

Purple Michigan hits hard and fast. It takes little more than a couple of hits for smokers with a low tolerance to feel her full effect. Even experienced smokers with an elevated tolerance will find that they need to inhale substantially less compared to other varieties. Joints and blunts offer a more controlled way of experiencing Pure Michigan. However, some smokers might enjoy hitting large bong bowls, or even consuming edibles made with these buds, for a far more pronounced effect.

Regarding aroma and flavor, Pure Michigan is generally described as fruity and citrusy with a hint of ammonia! This latter note may seem odd or unappealing, but many stoners find it enjoyable. It’s worth noting that some smokers pick up on hints of vanilla and coffee in these buds as well, making for a truly complex flavor profile.

Uses of Pure Michigan

Overall, the huge quantities of THC and stoning terpenes in Pure Michigan buds make her a strain suited for quiet evenings at home. She certainly doesn’t do much to keep smokers productive in the daytime, and will even tilt users toward a state of introversion at parties and social gatherings. Most users enjoy these buds while watching a film, listening to music, or shortly before bed.

While many cannabis users smoke Pure Michigan for its recreational effects, some medical marijuana patients use this cultivar to address the symptoms of certain health issues. For example, medical cannabis patients with anxiety, pain, and sleep issues may choose to experiment with Pure Michigan.

Though mild, Pure Michigan is capable of causing side effects, including lethargy, paranoia and anxiety (in higher doses), and dizziness.

Cultivation and Production of Pure Michigan

Thanks to her hardy genetics, Pure Michigan grows well in a wide variety of environments. Her compact stature also makes her a popular choice for growers with limited room to cultivate weed. Indoors, plants peak at around 70cm and produce up to 550g/m² after a brief flowering phase of 56–63 days.

Plants reach a slightly taller height of 100cm outdoors when grown in raised beds or directly in the ground. Transplant seedlings into a sunny position for the best results. Amend your plot with plenty of organic matter, such as aged compost, to enhance the fertility of your growing medium and the productivity of your plants.

Pure Michigan — Pure Goodness

Pure Michigan ranks as one of the strongest cannabis strains on the market right now. As the result of a well-conducted collaborative breeding project, she exhibits impressive reliability and productivity. Her small and compact nature and high levels of THC allow growers to produce a sizable and potent stash, even in a small space.
