Names for different strains of marijuana are chosen by color, taste, smell, etc. The COLOR pigments found in plants
provide people with nutrients, including carotenoids,
anthocyanins, flavonoids, betalains, GREEN chlorophylls,
and YELLOW, ORANGE or RED carotenoids.

Flavonoids include red or BLUE anthocyanins and
white or pale yellow compounds such as rutin,
quercitin, and kaempferol.
Red-VIOLET is betacyanin and yellow is betaxanthin.
Carotenoids, anthocyanins, and other
flavonoids might protect against certain forms of cancer
and cardiovascular disease with their antioxidant properties.
For example: Purple Kush’s foliage exhibits a classic indica growth pattern with a sturdy bush with dark green hues and hints of purple toward ripeness.
