Introducing Blue Chip’s Fall Strains

Meet Blue Chip’s New Fall Trio of Strains


Purple Lotus Brings the Heat with a Trio of New Strains from Blue Chip

Blue Chip Genetics are cannabis cultivators that have truly earned their name. 

The result of two biochemists who began hunting and cross-breeding genotypes in Santa Rosa all the way back in 2008, today the company enjoys a stellar reputation as one of California’s most revered and respected operations. Heck, Blue Chip’s signature, eponymous strain was so popular that it even got folks like Tommy Chong to make the trip to Purple Lotus to try these famed buds for themselves.

To get to that point took years of effort and countless experimentation, all done in the name of creating the best possible cannabis for consumers to enjoy. From a year-long pheno hunt to find rare and exotic seeds from all over the world to the eventual construction of a $1 million cultivation facility right here in San Jose, Blue Chip’s team of geneticists continue to work tirelessly to this day to bring the best cannabis has to offer to our shelves and into your hands.

Today, Purple Lotus is thrilled to announce a trio of new options from Blue Chip that are now available on our menu, joining the ranks of perennial favorites like Gangsta Bird, The Glove, Butter Mintz, and Georgia Pie.

First up is Blue Chip’s Apricot Jelly

Featuring a citrus scent that hints at this strain’s refreshingly tropical taste, Apricot Jelly is a Sativa-dominant hybrid bursting with the fruit tones of ripe apricots. Developed by In-House Genetics, this cross of the rare Irene Apricot with Jelly Breath Bx1 offers a uniquely delicious flavor combined with effects well-suited to those seeking an up-beat burst of euphoria and creativity. If you’re someone who enjoys starting your day off with a toke, Blue Chip’s Apricot Jelly is the perfect companion to a hot cup of coffee to get you moving and feeling fantastic.

The second of our new Blue Chip strain additions is GG4.

Billed as an artisan crossing of Chem’s Sister, Chocolate Diesel, and Sour Dubb, this potent offering delivers an aroma the blends notes of pine, chocolate, and diesel. The result is a relaxing and euphoric high that will have your body melting into the nearest piece of furniture like a perfectly cooked s’more. Reputed for hitting hard and serving as a great way to get yourself relaxed in a hurry, GG4 is an ideal strain to turn to after a long day. From its oversized, fluffy nugs to its taste combining mocha, spices, and some serious funk, GG4 is an ideal representation of everything Blue Chip does best.

Last but most definitely not least is Blue Chip Runtz

Named in honor of the iconic, fruit-shaped candy, Runtz is a hybrid strain that evenly balances indica and sativa to provide a high that hits your head in a hurry before serenely spreading across the rest of your body. As its namesake might imply, Runtz is also extremely tasty, featuring a flavor that combines tropical citrus and sour berries galore. The result of a cross between another strain with a candy-affiliated name (Zkittlez) and one named for an iconic frozen Italian dessert (Gelato), the results are a mouthwateringly tasty adventure that will take you on a journey towards a calming, sleepy high.

As always, the menu at Purple Lotus is ever-changing as part of our commitment to always bring you the best the cannabis world has to offer. However, one thing that will never change is our long-standing support of Blue Chip and the amazing strains they continue to deliver for our consumers to enjoy. 

To try any or all of this spectacular new trio of Blue Chip strains, visit our San Jose storefront at 752 Commercial St. or place an order for pick-up or delivery via our website at

10 Reasons Why Modern Dispensaries Have Taken Cannabis Delivery to the Next Level

10 Reasons Why Modern Dispensaries Have Taken Cannabis Delivery to the Next Level

10 Reasons Why Modern Dispensaries Have Taken Cannabis Delivery to the Next Level


Cannabis delivery grows more and more convenient each year. Here are ten reasons that prove delivery is good for the industry as well as a look at how Bay Area dispensaries are leading the way forward.

Cannabis has come a long way since the early days of legalization. Today, there are now between 500 and 1000 marijuana dispensaries operating in the state of California. Naturally, every dispensary has differences in their products, services, and price points. But of all the innovations cannabis culture has recently enjoyed, one of the newest and most popular services is that of marijuana home delivery. In this guide, we’ll explain 10 of the reasons behind this surge as well as how delivery services are improving the cannabis industry in general. Inhale deep and take a load off while you check out the facts about one of the most convenient services in the industry.

1. Safety

Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, social distancing and stay at home orders have dominated the socio-political landscape. As soon as shelter-in-place became the norm for Californians, cannabis delivery services became essential. A delivery service makes long lines and crowded storefronts obsolete as consumers no longer have to leave the safety of their home to purchase cannabis. This allows for fewer crowds in public and less spreading of the deadly virus.

2. Convenience

Delivery is always the easiest and most convenient option when it comes to anything. Cannabis is no exception. You no longer have to take time out of your day to visit the dispensary. You can schedule a set delivery time and wait for your buds to come to you.

3. Less D.U.I.’s

What happens when you and your friends run out of weed? In the past, somebody would have to go on a bud-run. Unfortunately, if there are no dispensaries in their immediate vicinity, sometimes scofflaw stoners will choose to get behind the wheel. Some may even be careless enough to do this after already getting high throughout the day. With a delivery service, no one ever has any excuse — or need! — to drive their vehicle under the influence. Everyone can get their bud in a safe and legal way, without anyone having to drive to go get it. For someone who already happens to be high, this can be a literal lifesaver.

4. Cashless Payments Change Everything

No-contact checkout is becoming the norm for almost everything, so it comes as little surprise that this trend has also hit the cannabis industry. Many delivery services offer a cashless payments option. This means that you can order your weed online, pay for it ahead of time, and then have it dropped off. You can get your marijuana without having to interact with a fellow human being at all. In times of Covid, or simply just feeling couch-locked from a particularly anti-social strain of weed, this can be an essential perk to the delivery process.

 5. Delivery Is Faster Than Ever

In the past, delivery services could often take a while to get to your door. Now many delivery routes have been optimized by route planners. This allows for near-instant turn around times when it comes to delivering your marijuana. Some dispensaries even offer an app that allows you to track your delivery in real-time, while others have same-day delivery or delivery offered in 60 minutes or less.

6. Delivery Notifications

Many services offer special delivery notifications that are sent to your mobile device. This allows you to know exactly when your cannabis will arrive without having to wait around for it all day. By enabling delivery notifications, you can simply lock in your delivery window and focus on your other plans until your special order arrives right on time.

7. The Price You See Is What You Get

With a delivery service, there is no haggling at the store for a special price. There is also none of the inflation or any risk of hidden fees that can come along with visiting a cannabis dispensary. The price you see when you order online is exactly the one you pay when it gets to your door.

8. Consistency of Service

In the old days, service would all depend on the budtender at your local dispensary. Sometimes they would be knowledgeable and helpful but other times, they might not care or have an attitude. When getting cannabis delivered, you can do it all yourself sans budtender by ordering online. If you do require advice or a consultation about your purchase, don’t worry! Many services offer a chat option or provide a phone number to call. Either way, you’ll be assured of consistent, quality service.

9. Instant Gratification

California has laws that limit the on-site consumption of cannabis. Since the passing of Proposition 64, marijuana-related businesses can only allow consumption on-site if they are licensed by the local government. These licenses are very difficult to get and therefore most dispensaries don’t allow consumption of their product on-site. By contrast, when you get your cannabis delivered, you can enjoy it from the moment it gets into your hands!

10. Delivery Saves You Money

When traveling to a dispensary, you may need to pay for gas, parking, and (depending on where you are located) tolls. If you don’t have a car, then you’ll need to pay to use public transit or a rideshare service. Using a delivery service eliminates the need for all of these additional fees. In some cases, you’ll be asked to pay a flat rate delivery fee, but this is much less than the cost of driving to get your pot on your own. Even with a fee, using a delivery service saves you money in the long run. Bonus: if you keep your fridge well-stocked, you can also save money on the ancillary cost of going out for munchies after you smoke!

Get High Without The Drive

There are many more reasons we haven’t listed that also speak to why delivery services are revolutionizing the cannabis industry. Consider the reasons above just the tip of the iceberg! As cannabis continues to evolve in greenhouses around the world, the industry will subsequently need to evolve too. Cannabis delivery services are one of the most cutting-edge ways that the cannabis industry has changed in recent years. It makes one wonder what will come next in this budding market.

Purple Lotus is Bringing the Jungle (Boys) Home

Purple Lotus is Bringing the Jungle (Boys) Home

Purple Lotus is Bringing the Jungle (Boys) Home

Our menu just keeps getting better with the addition of select strains from the legendary Jungle Boys collective, available now!

When it comes to certifiable legends of the game, you can’t do better than the Jungle Boys. With over a decade of experience, the famed Los Angeles collective quickly outgrew their humble backyard beginnings on their way to becoming one of most respected, in-demand cannabis operations anywhere in the world. 

To be certain, earning such a stellar reputation takes a ton of work. When a new Jungle Boys strain hits shelves, it’s often the end result of a years’ long process that starts with the careful preservation of mother plants as well as extensive flowering efforts in pursuit of the best possible cuts. That’s in addition to Jungle Boys’ never-ending hunt for best and boldest phenotoypes – a staple of their brand.

Simply put, it’s always a special occasion when you’re smoking Jungle Boys’ cannabis.

Before now, however, getting your hands on the latest and best from this crew meant going to an official Jungle Boys retail location. That’s why we decided to make it our mission to find a way to bring this crown jewel cannabis a little closer to home.

Today, Purple Lotus is thrilled to announce that your next safari in search of Jungle Boys is as simple as paying us a visit. As one of the select few non-Jungle Boys retail operations now carrying the collective’s impressive offerings, Purple Lotus invites you to come see what all the fuss is about for yourself! 

At present, we currently have eight Jungle Boys strains available – each a shining example of what makes these SoCal cultivating champs so special. With more strains coming to our menu shortly, we’re proud to serve as a San Jose home for some of the best flower you’ll find anywhere in the world.

To kick things off, here’s a rundown on a few of the Jungle Boys strains we have available right now. Read on and welcome to the jungle!

Zack’s Cake

$59.99, 3.5g, THC 26.53%

Ready to have your cake and eat it too? That’s the dream made reality by Zack’s Cake – a cross of Zack’s Pie (think Grape Pie) and Jungle Cake (think Wedding Cake) that delivers an even hybrid of indica and sativa. Popular both for the balanced high it delivers as well as its absolutely delicious flavor, Zack’s Cake is a great option for those seeking to mellow their minds while getting a pleasant burst of euphoria as well. Basically, if you need a nap but can’t be knocked out for the rest of the day, try a “slice” of Zack’s Pie to cure what ails you!

Florida Sundae

$59.99, 3.5g, THC 26.27%

Sundaes are known for being decadent, and Florida Sundae by Jungle Boys is no exception. This indica-dominant strain features a potent cross of Jungle Boys’ exclusive Sundae Driver phenotype with their TK Bx1 triangle kush backcross, meaning you can expect some seriously uplifting effects to go along with a somewhat skunky flavor bursting with earthy notes and citrus overtones. Ideal for those in need of a creative boost or something to soothe cranky nerves, everything about this strain – from how smooth it hits to its incredible effects – is a perfect example of what Jungle Boys are all about.

Jungle Fire

$59.99, 3.5g, THC 27.47%

Want something that brings the heat? Try Jungle Fire, which features a cross between two iconic Jungle Boys’ strains: Jungle Mints and Jungle Cake. Together, this blend of the collective’s proprietary crosses of Wedding Cake and Kush Mints translates to a veritable cannabis superfood packed with all the best aspects we know and love about indica-dominant flower. Boasting a uniquely earthy taste and a fittingly strong potency, Jungle Fire is a strain that most definitely lives up to its name.

Mike Tai

$59.99, 3.5g, THC 28.7%

Refreshing barely scratches the surface when it comes to describing Mike Tai by Jungle Boys. That’s because this strain is a four-part cross featuring Gelato #45, Larry OG, Mai Tai, and Jungle Cake. Fortunately, putting all that cannabis goodness together into one epic strain is a promise Mike Tai delivers on every time. Much like the rum-based beverage of a similar name, this strain packs quite a punch, making it ideally suited for some end-of-the-day rest and relaxation. Another element Mike Tai shares in common with vacation cocktails are the delectable sweet, fruity notes that compliment every puff. In conclusion, if you’re ready to seriously relax, look no further than Mike Tai. 

But wait, there’s more! Check out our website for more amazing Jungle Boys strains, including Frosted Kush, Junglato, LA Kush Cake, Lemon Mints, and Triangle Larry. If you didn’t already have plans this summer, well, you certainly do now!

Five Reasons to Consider Switching from Leaf to Concentrates

Five Reasons to Consider Switching from Leaf to Concentrates

Five Reasons to Consider Switching from Leaf to Concentrates


Are you a tried-and-true leaf person curious about making the jump the dabs? Here are five reasons to consider making the switch to concentrates.

The world of cannabis has only gotten bigger in recent years. Consumers have a dizzying array of products to choose from, including edibles, tinctures, and concentrates such as wax or vaporizer liquid. Many people also still enjoy smoking marijuana in its classic flower form. But did you know that there are actually quite a few upsides to switching over to a concentrate? If you’re looking for a good reason to switch, we’ve got five right of them. Read on for more!


Much like making green butter in the days of yore, concentrates are made by extracting cannabinoids such as THC and CBD from the raw cannabis plant. This extract makes for a much more potent experience, as you are getting more of the good stuff (and none of the filler) with every hit. 

The majority of modern cannabis concentrates are made using a chemical extraction process involving hydrocarbons such as butane, alcohol, and heat. Concentrate extraction can produce a wide variety of different textures. This is why you’ve likely heard of things like wax, shatter, oil, sap, and honeycomb. In essence, they are all different names for the same thing, with each category referring to a concentrate’s given texture.

The wide variety of concentrate textures means that there are a number of different ways you can use them. Oils and certain waxes, for example, are often used in vaporizers and even come in pre-filled cartridges, while shatter is best suited for dab rigs.


The two most popular forms of vaporizing concentrates are in a dedicated vaporizer or in a dab rig. Vaporizers come in many shapes, sizes, and forms. Some resemble e-cigarettes and look like pens, while others are larger, handheld devices. There are even tabletop rigs for those seriously committed to the cause. 

Vaporizers are also designed to handle different types of concentrate, depending on user preference. Some units use oils and thin waxes in cartridges, while others use a liquid tank or feature an “oven” for vaporizing harder shatters and waxes. 

Dab rigs, by comparison, bear a closer resemblance to bongs, and actually function in a very similar way by using water to cool the vaporized concentrate before it enters your lungs. With dab rigs, a butane torch lighter is used to vaporize the concentrate, which sticks on the end of a glass or metal “nail.” The user then heats the nail before ultimately sucking the vapor through the water pipe portion.


Most smokers are familiar with cannabis flower: you roll it in a joint, put it in a bong or pipe, light it on fire, and inhale the smoke. Concentrates, however, are generally not smoked. Instead, they are vaporized in pens or by use of a  dab rig. In addition, there are quite a few benefits to switching from flower to concentrates. Let’s dive in deeper!

1. Concentrates Are More Potent

Cannabis concentrates like wax can contain up to 90% THC, which is significantly higher than even the most potent leaf strains! Because concentrates are so potent, you won’t need to use nearly as much of them to get the same effect. This makes concentrates cheaper in the long run, even if the initial cost can seem higher on a gram-for-gram level. New cannabis users should also know in advance that the potency of concentrates can be very strong for people who have yet to develop a tolerance. Even regular leaf smokers may find that concentrates pack a heavy punch. Dabs tend to be even stronger than other forms of vaporizing, so bear that in mind if you are thinking of giving concentrates a try. 

 2. Concentrates Are Healthier

We’ve known for a long time that inhaling smoke isn’t really the best thing for our bodies. Even though cannabis smoke is less toxic than cigarettes, it can still contain carcinogens and burning plant material. Since concentrates are vaporized, nothing burns. That’s because the temperature of vapor is just high enough to release cannabinoids, but not to burn them. This means less toxic smoke entering your lungs, which is always a good thing. Additionally, if you are looking for concentrates that are not made using a chemical process, take a dive into the world of water-extracted hash oils.

3. Ease of Use

One of the things that cannabis leaf proponents state as a major reason for continuing to smoke is the ritual. Without question, grinding up leaf material, painstakingly rolling it in a joint (or loading a bowl), and smoking it has a certain charm. But if you’re looking for something that’s a lot less fuss and mess, concentrates are the way to go. A visit to your local cannabis dispensary will likely yield many options available for your specific needs. Handheld concentrate vaporizers, in particular, have a lot to offer in terms of ease-of-use. You can even buy concentrates in pre-loaded cartridges, eliminating the need to fidget with anything other than attaching a new cartridge.

4. Better Taste

There used to be a valid argument that smoking or vaporizing leaf material just tasted better than concentrates. The reason? Back in the early days, the extraction process involved taking out all terpenes, which are what give cannabis its distinct flavor. Terpenes are also believed to contribute to the effects of a given strain, which is why modern concentrate makers have begun adding terpenes and other flavors back into their extracts. This actually makes for a much stronger and more refined taste — should you wish for it. If not, there’s also something for those who do not enjoy the flavors of weed: unflavored concentrates that have virtually no smell or taste. Whatever your preference, there’s a concentrate for you!

5. Stealth

There are many reasons why someone may not want everyone around them to know they are smoking cannabis. Apartment buildings, crowded public areas, and other places where the smell of cannabis may not be tolerated used to be off-limits. However, vaporizing concentrates does not create that well-known “weed” smell, as nothing burns in the process. And, as we mentioned earlier, you can even get concentrates that have no distinct odor or flavor at all. Another point in the stealth column is that vaporizers made for consuming concentrates are often very small and discreet, making it easy to take a toke or two on your lunch break without having to carry around a dab rig or be subject to questioning looks.

Cannabis Concentrates: Where To Buy

We offer a huge array of cannabis products, including a wide selection of concentrates, vaporizers, and dab rig accessories. Make sure to check out our weekly deals, and feel free to call us at (408) 456-0420 if you have any questions. Our knowledgeable staff can help direct you to the perfect products for your needs.
