We were pleasantly surprised when after the 3rd hit of RH #18 the bong water had a nice purple hue caused by some of the flower passing through the filter, like a sort of tea.  We first noticed this color while harvesting.  As I pushed the cart over the leaves it eventually revealed purple tracks on the floor.  Sounds crazy right? Well, just to explain this awesome phenomena it is actually a naturally occurring compound called anthocyanin a vital coloring pigment and member of the flavonoid class of phytochemicals found in fruits, vegetables and flowers.
