Purple Haze Strain
- Dry Eyes
- Dry Mouth
For those who are new to marijuana, Purple Haze is a comforting introduction to the munchies and couch lock. This strain provides a Sativa-dominant high for those more experienced with their THC intake that features euphoric cerebral stimulation complemented by an earthy body buzz.
The strain produces heavy yields of potent buds with resinous trichomes and slightly tangy blueberry undertones. Its parent strains are from the Haze and Thai genetic families, which contribute to its Sativa dominance.
Purple Haze is a popular strain for patients who need a lift in energy but cannot tolerate the anxiety and paranoia of more powerful THC strains; users have also reported using this cannabis strain for anxiety issues, depression, stress, pain relief, appetite stimulation, and insomnia.
The high is defined by euphoria, mood enhancement, pleasure, and increased mental activity. This is a great strain for relieving stress, making you feel uplifted and happier. Purple Haze can also increase focus while improving creativity. The cerebral effects can also lead to creative ideas and expansive thoughts.
The adverse effects include eye-stinging, dry eyes, anxiety, and paranoia. Its THC content is between 16% and 20%. It’s predominantly Indica with high CBD content. It has earthy, piney, sweet, fruity aromas.
Growing takes about 7 – 9 weeks, which is relatively short for a marijuana strain. This is not the type of cannabis to grow in a small space or indoors because it can produce big yields with a potent high. Expect the plants to grow to about 6 feet or more, so it’s better suited for outdoor growing in a warm climate.
The plant grows with heavy branches and is full of buds and leaves. It has a sweet berry aroma, which is slightly skunk as well. The leaves are light green with dark green hues; they’re long and wispy and cover the plant like a blanket.
