purple haze strain
Purple Haze is a sativa-leaning strain that takes its name from its lineage and from Jimi Hendrix’s 1967 song. This bud is thought to be a distinct phenotype of staple strain Haze, although some cannabis enthusiasts trace its lineage to a cross between Haze and an unspecified purple-flowering indica. In any case, the bud offers mentally stimulating effects as well as a complex, berry-like taste.
Purple Haze makes its appeal clear right off the bad, with medium to large-sized flowers that maintain a spade-like form, tapering down from a broad base to a pointed tip. True to their sativa heritage, these buds have an irregular shape, with their soft, shiny leaves radiating outwards from their central core. The leaves themselves are a patchwork of mossy green and dark yellow giving this species its name. Finally, these flowers are covered with shiny trichomes, which explains their sensitivity.
This species is a cultivar with uncertain origins. Its name first appeared when purple LSD capsules – also known as Purple Haze – were sold in the 1960s and 1970s. The flower got its name because of its bright purple flowers. and its trichome density. According to Sam the Skunkman, the strain came from Colombia, a specimen of the Haze weed variety he had purchased at the time.
It is one of the original Haze phenotypes from stable Colombian seeds bred by the Haze Brothers, according to Queen Seeds. Purple Haze became the most popular of these strains, leading to many hybrids and variations over the following decades.
This cannabis strain is an old-school favorite that made its presence known in the 1970s. Named after a Jimi Hedrix song that is about a high-grade L.S.D., the Sativa qualities of Purple Haze will definitely put you in a “Haze” and leave you feeling happy. Purple Haze is great for patients that need relief from depression, stress, and pain.
