Info: This strain is an old and venerable one popularized by Jimi Hendrix’s 1967 classic song of the same name. Purple Haze is believed to come from parent strains Purple Thai and Haze. A great daytime strain that will make you feel euphoric and alert at the same time. The high could become trippy if you overindulge as this strain appears fairly strong based on appearance and reputation. (Check out all the reviews on Leafly that warn people not to smoke too much! A little goes a long way.) Great for crushing stress as well as for depression, pain, lack of appetite and fatigue.

Jimi Hendrix’s song from the 1960s is the perfect name for the strain of cannabis called Purple Haze. This Sativa strain’s lineage is a cross between the purple-flowering indica and a phenotype of the strain Haze. Purple Haze Sativa’s mentally-stimulating effects and taste reminiscent of sweet berries is a product of the harvesting of medium to large spade-shaped flowers with a broad base and pointed tip. The leaves are a lovely mixture of deep purple and mossy green. Sticky trichomes that coat the flowers are responsible for the pleasant psychoactivity cannabis users enjoy.
When the flowers of this strain of cannabis are properly cured, you’ll notice a musty smell at first. Sniff again and you’ll notice a tart berrylike aroma. Grind them up and the familiar aroma of Haze is released. Smoking Purple Haze Sativa in a pipe or joint releases a very smooth and sweet smoke that is comfortable to ingest.
Purple Haze Sativa delivers its magical effect moments after inhaling the flavorful smoke. The user may feel flushing of the cheeks and slight pressure near the temples. A higher plane of thinking soon follows. The result is focus and creativity. Stimulating conversation comes easily in a roomful of like-minded people enjoying this strain of cannabis. When enjoying it alone, chores or analytical thinking become easier and more pleasant.
Purple Haze imparts a combination of mental and physical elements that enhance activities involving both body and mind. Stimulating and trippy, it’s the perfect smoke for gamers and creative types. It also makes quite an effective aphrodisiac. All of that energy can dip a bit as time passes, but users aren’t likely to crash. Just before bedtime may not be the best time to enjoy this smoke.
Purple Haze’s effects also have some medical cannabis applications including help with attention deficit disorder, mild stress or depression, headaches, and cramps. However, it’s not a good option for those prone to panic attacks or paranoia.
True Purple Haze seeds can be hard to find for sale online. One surefire way to get the real thing is to take clippings from adult plants and foster “clones.” Purple Haze plants tend to grow tall and have to be trimmed back if grown indoors. Flowers appear in about 10 weeks.
