Purple Haze strain overview
If you enjoy listening to old-school music, you have probably come across a song from 1967 by Jimmy Hendrix, dubbed Purple Haze. This song single-handedly popularized this strain in the 70s, making it one of the most sought-after varieties at the time.

What is the origin and genetic composition of Purple Haze feminized seeds?
Purple Haze’s origin remains unclear; I guess you can say it is hazy. However, this does not take away the strain’s outstanding attributes. Purple Haze is believed to be a cross between the revered Original Haze and Purple Thai. The result is a potent strain with moderate THC levels between 15% and 20%.
This Sativa dominant hybrid grows tall but not quite like other Sativas. Its height ranges between 120cm and 240 cm indoors and up to 300cm outdoors. The buds are dense with deep green fan, and sugar leaves with purple hints across- hence its name. Fiery orange pistils can be spotted across the bud. A thick crystalline trichome layer gives the buds a shiny appearance.
What does consuming Purple Haze flowers feel like?
Being Sativa dominant, Purple Haze’s effects tend to be more cerebral-centered. Consumers remain in a good mood, uplifted, social, creative, and energetic for prolonged durations. This is an ideal choice when facing loads of work or mundane tasks. Purple Haze will help you sail through it without losing momentum.
Indica effects set in as the cerebral buzz begins to fade. A wave of relaxation takes over, starting from the head to the toes. Feelings of calm and peace of mind dominate, leaving one more receptive to sleep. Always prepare something to eat before the toking session to satiate the hunger this strain will cause.
What do Purple Haze feminized seeds smell and taste like?
One of the features that separated Purple Haze from other strains is the complex but enticing flavor profile. This hybrid produces a delicious blueberry aroma that blends perfectly with spicy and tropical hints. When broken apart, properly cured Purple Haze buds have a musty and dank scent.
The smoke has a mouthwatering sweet, exotic flavor with hints of blueberry and a long-lasting grape aftertaste. Dominant terpenes include Caryophyllene, Myrcene, and Humulene.
How to grow Purple Haze feminized seeds
Purple Haze feminized seeds are every grower’s dream. They are easy to cultivate, require minimum attention, and are resistant to common biotic and non-biotic factors. The plants thrive in a warm and sunny environment. Indoor growers should maintain temperatures between 21 and 26 degrees Celsius and utilize LED full-spectrum lights for optimum yields.
The strain produces better results when subjected to the ScrOG and high-stress methods, such as super cropping. Ensure that the plants are mature, healthy, and strong enough to withstand and overcome the training, as the wrong move could greatly affect overall yields.
Purple Haze has a flowering stage that lasts 8 to 9 weeks and produces 400 to 500 grams/m². In an open set up, the plants are ready for harvest by early October and produce 400 grams/plant.
Can the Purple Haze strain be used therapeutically?
Medical cannabis consumers use purple Haze to treat anxiety, depression, stress, appetite loss, and insomnia.
