Purple Haze

Purple Haze

Purple Haze is one of the most legendary cannabis strains in the world due to its genetics and its easily recognizable purple color. The strain was reportedly popularized by Jimmy Hendrix with his famous song of the same name, Purple Haze. Whether this statement is 100% true and whether Purple Haze would have become famous without the song is not known for sure.

Origin of Purple Haze

Purple Haze first appeared in America in the 1970s. As mentioned in the introduction, many believe Jimmy Hendrix popularized the strain. However, clear evidence for this assumption is lacking. Some claim that Hendrix's song is a reference to an LSD pack popular in the '70s. Be that as it may, Purple Haze has been one of the most legendary strains in the world ever since.

Purple Haze genetics

Let's take a look at how it looks with genetics. As the name suggests, Purple Haze gets some of its genetics from the "Haze" strains. These are sativa-dominant strains that produce powerful effects and encourage creativity. The most well-known Haze strains include Silver Haze and Lemon Haze.

Unfortunately, the strain that existed in the USA in the 70's has now completely disappeared and today's Purple Haze strain tries to get as close as possible to it, but is not genetically completely identical.

Taste and aroma of Purple Haze

The Purple Haze flower features lemony and fruity notes. A taste particularly appreciated by cannabis lovers.

Optics of the Purple Haze flowers

Some cannabis flowers can turn purple at the end of flowering in low temperatures, but this does not mean they are Purple Haze. The Purple Haze strain naturally produces purple hues on these buds, regardless of the growing temperature.
