Purple Haze - 15% THC
Sativa Dominant Hybrid
Perhaps famous for Jimmi Hendrix's 1967 hit song, “Purple Haze”. Although it is believed Jimmi's song was created about the "brand" of a super potent acid tab (LSD) created by Owsley Stanley. At Monterey Pop Festival at which Hendrix reportedly consumed the LSD drug, "Monterey Purple" prior to going onstage.
In 1965 LSD was legal in Los Angeles and Owsley's LSD came in 270 microgram tablets of purple (Purple Haze) and white (White Lightning). They were later replaced by the more powerful "California Sun Spots" which were taken out of circulation by the DEA because too many people were taking them and jumping off buildings believing they could fly.
However, Hendrix stated that the song had nothing to do with drugs, but rather was based on a dream he had in which he was walking under the sea. So to be clear, Jimi was not singing about this medical strain and the Purple Haze strain is not an urban myth, it is very real.
The Purple Haze cannabis strain was created in the early 70's in Santa Cruz, California by the Brothers Grimm. But it was a phenotype of the true original Haze which was selectively bred into a Haze that produced more purple phenotype than normal.
The Grimm’s gave numerous clones (5) to an old and aged user of the debunked OG and CW called Romberryherm (aka knowsitallforsure at CW) who was a nearby neighbor of the Grimm’s in Santa Cruz way back then. Romberryherm was the man who Neville got his haze from.
Romberry gave him clippings of the worst 3 hazes he had out of the 5 that the Grimm's gave him under the understanding that he was NOT to use them for financial gain unless he provided some kickback to him. Neville gave his word to him at the time that he wouldn't use them...but did. The best of the 3 he used in his original Neville's Haze but Romberryherm never saw a cent from it to this day.
The original Haze had a ratio of about 2-3 in 10 of the Purple pheno. The selectively bred sub strain had a ratio of about 8 in 10. This strain of cannabis hybrid with a soaring Haze high mixed with thick resin production of the finest Indicas. Not too tall.
Purple Haze is beautiful, with long running buds that produce pleasing dense and a sticky coating of trichomes. Purple Haze is darker than most sativas more deep green of Afghanis. When exposed to lower temperatures at the end of flowering, leaves and calyxes can rapidly change colour from dark green to lavender or violet and sometime blue.
Purple Haze smells subtle when plants are growing, becoming rich and sharp when buds are harvested and dried. The Purple Haze these days dont have half of the regular purple haze genetics in them that they did 30 years ago when the strain was such a big hit.
This is becuase of 30+ years of backcrossing and eventually evolved to lose some of the original traits from the plant. Although the past strain and its potencey wouldnt add up to todays standards.
Produces clear energetic creeping high.
The Purple Haze original strain is extinct.
