About this Sativa 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.

Purple Haze Flavor, Aroma, Appearance
As you might have guessed, Purple Haze comes with a pop of color that is easily distinguishable, and so it makes a great beauty to grow from home. With long, thick nugs in a light green hue and deep purple undertones, it is indeed a sight to behold.
Purple hairs coat the nugs and intertwine with a layer of white trichomes that make for a sickly sweet and sticky resin. Overall, this bud takes on a typical sativa structure with loose leaves that grow in spirals and spread outward.When it comes to the taste and aroma of Purple Haze, the experience is overwhelmingly sweet, with a berry undertone in both. Many users describe an earthy note which is predominantly overridden by spicy berries, and the flavor isn’t far from this either!
All in all it is a pretty moreish bud, especially if you are partial to a sweeter experience.
