I've had weed that was so purple it looked almost black. The color did not rub off when rolled in a joint, nor did it rub off on my fingers. Ever. I've never seen weed leave a stain on a paper towel. Not fresh weed, not cured weed. Never.

That weed was adulterated with something. I've sold, grown and handled a LOT of weed over the years. I've never had weed do that.

Sorry man, I myself would not smoke that. I'd be taking it back to where I got it and getting a refund.

So, still mixed opinions on this. Guys says I'm 'bugging out' and won't take it back. Some saying it's normal and others saying it's strange.

How would I go about getting the bud properly tested? I'm based in New York - any home kits I could use? Tests? Ways to be certain?

Thanks for all replies so far.

They put something on it.
Purple colored buds don't stain a wet paper towel purple any more than green buds stain it green.

Dude needs to let you swap it for something green or he should lose you as a customer.
I wouldn't smoke it.

I made bubble hash with PCK once and the water looked like cranberry juice. Looks legit to me.

I just tested a small fresh bud of Pokey Doke.


It definitely bleeds onto a wet paper towel without much effort.

Dont have any dried as of yet to test.

I made some ISO a few years ago with some Ultra Sonja that had just a hint of purple in it and the ISO came out purple/dark blood coloured.

Anthocyanins are water soluble and there are many types so it may be just that. I’ve never seen that kind of bleeding with cannabis but not to say it couldn’t happen.

You can try a home test to see if it may be anthocyanins. You can make crude litmus type paper out of red cabbage of which the main component is anthocyanins. So maybe you could do the same with the stains from your pot. Let your stained towel dry out and then place a few drops of an acidic liquid on it and in another spot place a few drops of alkaline liquid. If the spots where the liquid was placed changes color it could be anthocyanins. I can’t remember which ph anthocyanins test for, acidic or basic, so try both.

Thanks guys, knew this was the right place to ask - happy to see other people reporting the same thing, especially with fresh homegrown. Guess I can give it another try now.

If the product is good and and has desired effects, and it certainly looks very good I doubt that somebody would go through the trouble just to market it as purple. If it was me I wouldn't Worry about it unless I second mortgaged my house for a trunk load. It looks good to me.

It looks fine to me. I've seen purple pot that dyes stuff purple. I have seeds that are stained black from the nug it comes from.
Don't understand why anyone would want to turn perfectly good green pot purple. Seems moronic to me. The dumbest thing I saw was a hormone to make a green plant turn purplish. Just get a purple strain, plenty of them out there.
Of course there's people that are suspicious of all purple pot, believe it's not real or you have to freeze the pot or abuse it somehow to make it purple.
Years ago I had a strain that was blackish-purple. And smelled exactly like kool aid. I was smoking with a friend who didn't know I grew it, didn't grow. He told me, like he had some insider's knowledge, that the grower waters the plants with kool aid to make it taste that way. It was very hard not to burst out laughing.
That was a strain that would dye stuff purple. You've seen all the trouble the Romans had to go through with rotten shellfish to make royal purple? Wouldn't need it with that strain.
I knew a guy who used to soak his pot in cola soda pop. He grew such crappy pot, he soaked it in soda to make it more 'crystally'. Instead of harvesting it at the right time. They were tweakers, so the stupidity wasn't surprising. If you get your pot from reputable people you can trust, don't have to worry. If it's high grade organic, don't have to worry. If you're buying your pot from sketchy dudes be very cautious.
