The common image of cannabis is that of a slender plant with dark or light green leaves and flowers. But did you know that there are some genetics that can produce red, purple, blue, pink or even black marijuana plants?
Today we will explain why some genetics offer red cannbis leaves and flowers. We will also give you a list of the best genetics available in the Bulk Genetics catalogue, to enjoy beautiful cannabis buds that will stand out from the rest of your crop.
Where does red cannabis come from?
The following applies to your cannabis plants, but it also applies to other plants and mushrooms. The green colour of most marihuana plants, but also most other plants, is present thanks to chlorophyll. Something you probably already know, but do you know why some are the red, purple, pink or black colour of cannabis on your plants?
The presence of anthocyanins explains the presence of these colours in your plants. It is a natural dye found in the vacuoles of leaf and flower cells. Anthocyanins are found in your red marihuana plants, but also in blueberries, blackberries, cherries, grapes, cranberries and aubergines, for example.
There is no single type of anthocyanin. It is a flavonoid that is divided into several groups capable of producing color variations between red, pink, purple, blue and black cannabis.
It is also important to note that while genetics play an important role in the appearance of red or purple marihuana, growing conditions are also a decisive point in the production of these colours. Large temperature differences between day and night during the last weeks of flowering, with cooler temperatures at night, can enhance the appearance of purple colours.
