Purple Haze Strain Overview

The legendary legacy of Jimi Hendrix lives on through his 20th-century chart-topping guitar playing, but did you know that the musical icon also served as inspiration for a cannabis strain? Purple Haze, named after the American guitarist’s 1967 hit song, takes on purple hues throughout its loose bud structure. Rumored to boast the genetics of Purple Thai and Haze, this dreamy strain is a must-try for consumers who want to tease their senses and slip into a THC-fueled slumber.

Ideally paired with some Jimi Hendrix classics and nature walks, Purple Haze has an average THC content of 15% to 20%. After smoking this sweet yet earthy creation, your tastebuds will awaken with the flavors of berry, spice, and citrus. The euphoria may kick in quickly and linger for long periods. Spending some time with Jimi Hendrix is sure to ease the mind, calm the nerves, and deliver fast-acting pain relief.
