Type: 60:40 sativa:indica
Ancestry: Purple Thai and Haze
THC Content: 17-22%
Terpenes: caryophyllene, humulene, myrcene
Appearance: Classically sativa-like loose and fluffy buds with bushy leaves. Speaking of leaves, they are responsible for the “purple” in the strain’s name, making for a beautiful, vibrant contrast with the green hues and white trichome coating.
Aroma and Taste: The aroma is a unique and balanced blend of sweet berries on the one side and earthiness and dankness on the other, the latter coming to the fore as you break the buds open, giving it all a nice kick, a sharp edginess. The flavor is more of the same, but with a hint of spiciness added to the mix. The smoke is smooth and easy on the throat.
Trivia: The strain is named after Jimmi Hendrix’s iconic eponymous song.
Even though it is the strain that is named after the iconic Jimmi Hendrix’s song, you could easily imagine it being the other way around, especially if this was a sci-fi movie about time travel, in which Hendrix goes back to name the song after his previously unnamed muse. In other words, Purple Haze is an electrifying and borderline psychedelic blast that will make every moment feel like a movie scene – faithful, historic, full of color, nuance, wonder, and hidden meaning.
Purple Haze is an explosive conversation starter, whether consumed in company or alone. At social gatherings, it can kickstart conversations that branch out like majestic trees without losing sight of their roots. This strain hits a sweet spot of associative thinking, focus, euphoria, and heightened sensory perceptions, and you’ll feel like this sweet spot contains the whole universe within it.
More experienced users tend to take care of mundane chores in this Purple Haze, as it makes such activities more fun or turns them into simple motions you go through while your mind soars in some other realm, high above trivialities.
But having a palpable indica side, Purple Haze doesn’t just stimulate the mind. In fact, it makes you strangely aware of your body and brings out a sense of oneness with it, which lends itself very nicely in the bedroom as well.
The “comedown,” if you can even call it that, is ever so gradual, in fact, it can be so gradual that the effects don’t even wear off in time for you to go to sleep. Purple Haze is celebrated as a “wake and bake” strain and shouldn’t be consumed too soon before bedtime.
Purple Haze’s mentally uplifting and stimulating effects can help people who suffer from depression or have attention deficit disorders. The sense of wonder it promotes can pull users far and away from their anxious thoughts and worries, above everyday stress.
This all-around purple invigoration can also energize and spur people to action who normally battle chronic fatigue and/or find themselves stuck in a rut.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that Purple Haze helps alleviate inflammation and pain to an extent as well.
