According to breeder Sam Skunkman, "Yes, Purple Original Haze was absolutely a reality. It was around for more than a decade in the late ’60s and ’70s, and from then on in the form of hybrids. It came in silver, blue, reddish, as well as purple and almost black. I grew, smoked, saw them all. They were real. Purple Haze was Original Haze with Colombian bloodlines [i.e., phenotype]." Leafly says the strain is a cross between Haze and Purple Thai.
Description and Effects
Purple Haze has earthy and sweet flavors, sometimes with berry or spice undertones. Plants have an 8- to 9-week flowing time, and buds are purple in color.
This strain offers the user a very energetic high and is a favorite amongst medicinal users for its strong pain relief qualities. According to Leafly, "Purple Haze delivers a dreamy burst of euphoria that brings veteran consumers back to their psychedelic heyday. This nostalgic sativa staple remains cherished for its high-energy cerebral stimulation that awakens creativity and blissful contentment throughout the day."
In his review for Medical Jane, Matthew Price wrote: "If you imagine what the color purple would actually taste like… that’s precisely what I believe Purple Haze gives your taste buds." Purple Haze received honorable mention in High Times magazine's 2014 list of the "25 Greatest Strains of All Time".
