About this Hybrid Strain

When you pay close attention to Jimi Hendrix’s lyrics from the 1967 classic Purple Haze, it’s very possible he was talking about this cannabis strain. Named after the array of purples a nicely cultivated batch conjures up, Purple Haze is a strain that both novice and veteran consumers can indulge in as it’s been around since the 60’s. The question is – was the strain named after the song or the song named after the strain?

The parent strains of Purple Haze are both sativa, Haze and Purple Thai.

With THC levels usually ranging in the low teens, Purple Haze might be a good strain to try for beginners since modern strains tend to jump up in the 20’s with THC levels. It’s popular because of the high it tends to create, often leaving reviewers claiming it increases energy, creativity, and appetite which are effects that many recreational consumers tend to enjoy, especially at a social level. Fans of this strain like to delve into their hobbies such as painting, song-writing, or any other creative outlet that keeps the mind busy and imaginative. Though it wouldn’t hurt to have some snacks nearby when trying this strain as well, since many reviewers report having the munchies. A warm body buzz has also been tied to this strain as a common effect felt by its fans, relieving mild aches in the body and bringing relaxation to muscles. Cotton mouth and dry eyes have been reported to be the most common negative side-effects of this strain, though paranoia may surface if consumed improperly.

If your curious about its scent and flavor, Purple Haze has a sweet and earthy aroma that often carries spicy and berry-like undertones. Purple Haze is only meant for patient growers, taking anywhere from 16 to 20 weeks to flower.
