Mendocino Purps is a heavy indica-leaning hybrid and its average THC levels have been tested to be a high of 22%, which is quite powerful.

It is important to note that dry mouth and dry eyes are a common side effect of this strain. Inexperienced users may experience dizziness or headaches from its high THC content.
