Immortalized in both cannabis and popular culture by The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s 1967 smash hit of the same name, Purple Haze has earned its sterling reputation as one of the most pleasantly psychoactive strains on the market. This sativa-forward hybrid packs a moderately high THC content (between 17-20%) and delivers a cheerful, euphoric, giggly experience to bring a smile to the face of the discerning and casual cannabis consumer alike. Along with its blissful properties, Purple Haze interacts with your brain and body to stave off symptoms of restlessness and insomnia and help you get a good night’s sleep.

What are the medical benefits of the Purple Haze strain?
The most significant of Purple Haze’s medical benefits is its positive effects on your sleep cycle. When the cannabinoids found in Purple Haze and other strains of marijuana bind to the endocannabinoid receptors in your brain, it signals for the release of extra adenosine in your body. Adenosine is a naturally-occurring molecule that causes the body to become gradually drowsy and helps to trigger the initial stages of REM sleep. Elevated adenosine levels can also help to mitigate symptoms of conditions that interrupt the sleep cycle, such as night terrors or restless leg syndrome. In short, Purple Haze is a safe, effective, and 100% natural sleep aid.
How does the Purple Haze strain affect the brain and body?
Like many other sativa-dominant strains, the Purple Haze strain offers a characteristically psychoactive, cerebral high. This is partially to do with the higher concentration of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) found within the plant. THC specifically targets the nucleus accumbens region of the brain, which is also known as the “reward circuit”. By interacting with the synapses and receptors in this region, the THC molecules in Purple Haze create pleasant feelings of bliss and euphoria. While this feeling is experienced most acutely in the brain, THC binds with other receptors found throughout the body and can stimulate both appetite and sleepiness.
How do I grow Purple Haze cannabis seeds?
Effectively growing cannabis is all about controlling three major variables: light, water, and climate. The most important investment you’ll need to make in order to grow Purple Haze is a set of grow lights. Purple Haze is a photoperiodic strain and will need upwards of 18 hours of light during its vegetative phase and 12 hours of light during its flowering phase. Additionally, these plants require blue light during their vegetative phase and orange light during their flowering phase, so buying an LED light capable of emitting a full spectrum of colors is a sound investment. While cannabis plants are fairly robust in comparison to other household plants, it is necessary to keep your grow environment temperature and humidity stable to keep your Purple Haze plant healthy and maximize your eventual yield. A grow space should have adequate ventilation to get air to your plant and should be kept between 68-77 degrees Fahrenheit or (20-25 degrees Celsius) at all times. Humidity levels in your grow area should start at 70% and should be scaled down to around 40% towards the end of the flowering phase and into harvesting. Finally, a regular watering cycle of either rain or gray water (which naturally carries the neutral pH balance these plants thrive on) or reverse-osmosis filtered tap water will ensure that your plant will be healthy, happy, and laden with buds.
Is the Purple Haze strain easy to grow for beginners?
While not quite as user-friendly as an auto-flowering variety, the Purple Haze strain is among the easiest strains to cultivate in the entire Growers Choice catalog. All Purple Haze seeds are fully-feminized and if properly cared for will mature into high-yielding plants (a whopping 500g per plant in indoor conditions). In addition, Purple Haze is hearty enough to cultivate outdoors as well as indoors, provided that your local climate and season are amenable to gardening. Under the right conditions, Purple Haze has a flowering period of only 9 weeks – providing a substantial harvest in just under three months!
How can I grow the best Purple Haze cannabis plants?
Just as finding the right nutrient balance helps build a healthy human body, the same principle applies to growing a healthy Purple Haze plant. The most vital nutrients for growing cannabis are nitrogen (n), phosphorus (p), and potassium (k). Not only is it critical to regularly feed your plants fertilizers with high levels of these nutrients, but it is also important to keep in mind that the optimal balance of these nutrients changes during the growth cycle. In the early, vegetative stages of growth, your fertilizer should have roughly a 3:1:1 ratio of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium is preferred. During the flowering phases, the preferred proportions shift and you should scale down the nitrogen content and be feeding your plant roughly a 1:3:2 NPK ratio. While blending these nutrients is relatively simple, many online retailers offer fertilizers specially designed for growing cannabis during all the phases of plant growth.
How does the Purple Haze strain make users feel?
Satisfied Growers Choice customers have raved about Purple Haze and reported their experiences as
What does the Purple Haze strain smell and taste like?
Unlike some of the danker strains on the market, Purple Haze is prized for having a sweet, spicy flavor that will soothe even the most delicate of palates. The smoke has a distinctly fruity smell like fresh-picked berries that nicely matches its titular purple color, rounded out with an earthy undertone. With Purple Haze, there is no need to pick up flavored rolling papers or blunt wraps to get a touch of sweetness.
Does Purple Haze come with any adverse effects?
While the reviews for the Purple Haze strain are almost unanimously positive, excessive or immoderate consumption of any strain of cannabis carries the risk of some negative side effects. As mentioned before, Purple Haze does cause some degree of drowsiness and may not be an ideal strain for consumption during the day or during periods where a consumer needs to be especially active. Occasionally, bouts of heavy consumption can lead to “weed hangovers” the next day, and leave users feeling lethargic and foggy. While these effects can be uncomfortable, they tend to be mild and can be mitigated through hydration and consuming gut-balancing nutrients found in ginger and green tea, for example.
