The Purple Haze strain is a sativa dominant hybrid with a ratio of 85% sativa to 15% indica. It averages at a steady THC count of 26% potency, but has been tested to be as low as 18%, and to reach as high as 35%! Despite having been around for a number of decades, its exact lineage has yet to be confirmed, though it is widely believed to be the child of Haze and Purple Thai. Other beliefs about its lineage include being a phenotype of the original Haze, or Haze being crossed with some other purple strain.

It is well regarded for its potency as well as its unique flavour profile that blends fruits and berries as well as chocolate and coffee notes!
Appearance & Aroma
Not only is the name Purple Haze fitting for strain by being titled after a song that is so iconic of the stoner age, it is also appropriate by matching its appearance, which is riddled with deep purple and lavender colouring! These nuggets are long and dense with a shape that might remind you of little peppers. Its purple undertones contrast against its light minty green colour and coating of thin white crystal trichomes.
It is quite resinous and thus tends to be sticky. Its aromas are slightly pungent with stronger notes of earthiness, spice and sweet fruits. When smoking, you’ll be able to taste that sweet and spicy blend accented by notable accents of blueberries and grapes!
