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 a 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 instantly, with medium to large sized flowers that maintain a spadelike form, tapering down from a broad base to a pointed tip. True to their sativa heritage, these buds have a relatively loose structure, with thier soft and fluffy looking leaves spiraling loosely outward from their central stems. The leaves themselves are a patchwork of mossy green and the deep purple that gives this strain its name. Finally, these flowers are coated in sticky trichomes, accounting for the psychoactivity.
When properly cured, flowers of Purple Haze give off a dank, musky scent. A second whiff reveals some tart, berry tinged notes. Meanwhile, grinding up or picking apart these flowers release a herbal aroma, familiar to fans of Haze. Purple Haze gives off a very smooth and easily ingested smoke when combusted in a pipe or a joint. The smoke tastes sweet and hashy on the exhale. Notably, despite its purple colouring, this strain has no discernable grape flavours; this is because the pigments that determine its colour do not have a corresponding effect on its taste.
Purple Haze tends to work its magic soon after users inhale its flavorful smoke. As with many other sativas, this strain goes right to the head, resulting in side effects like a slight pressure around the temples or a flushing in the cheeks. Once these odd senations abate, users are granted access to a higher plane of thinking in which ideas jump around in free association in surprising new connection. Certain thoughts or ideas may strike the consumer as more interesting than they otherwise might- and might not seem particularly engaging to others who aren't under a similar influence. As such, Purple Haze can stimulate conversation in social settings with like minded people, serving as an icebreaker even when used among new acquaintances. Those who arent overwhelmed by the cerebral energy that Purple Haze provides may also find themselves able to ease heavy workloads, weather its open ended and creative or consists of complicated analytical tasks.After some time passes, this strain's physical side may creep in bit by bit. Rather than relaxing the user and undoing Purple Haze,s buzzy effects, the body high is stimulating and somewhat trippy. Smokers may feel a new connection to their body and a new groundedness. This eventful combination of physical and mental qualities makes this bud a great way to enjoy activities that involve both body and mind, like exercising or team events. Under the right circumstances and with the right company, Purple Haze can even be an effective aphrodisiac. As the hipers offafter a few hours, you may feel your energy begin to dip, but be warned, this strain is not for bedtime.
Purple Haze's upbeat effects have some applications for medical cannabis patients as well. The strain's cerebral qualities can help those with attention deficitdisorders to sustain focus on single tasks. Its mood altering effects may also temporarily improve symtoms of mild stress or depression. Physically, the strain can soothe minor inflammation like headached or cramps, because it tends to bring about fairly strong patternsof recursive thinking, Purple Haze is not a good option for patients who are prone to panic or paranoia.
In addition to having strong bag appeal, Purple Haze is a chatty strain that makes a good conversation starter. Cannabis newbies, beware: this strain can be very strong and disorienting.
