Purple Haze - Sativa

Strain Overview

Popularized by Jimi Hendrix’s 1967 classic, Purple Haze delivers a dreamy burst of euphoria. Created by crossing Purple Thai and Haze, this sativa remains cherished for its high energy cerebral stimulation that helps stir creativity and relaxation throughout the day. The average THC % for this strain is 15-22%, but the THC only tells a small portion of this strain’s story.

Terpene Profile and Effects

Cannabis has a notably strong unique aroma, and each individual strain has a different smell as well. The part of the cannabis plant that causes these different smells are the terpenes, aromatic molecules secreted inside the resin glands of the cannabis flowers. Terpenes not only provide a wide range of smells but can also accentuate the cannabinoid profile resulting in stronger and more focused physical and mental effects than the THC % would lead you to believe.

 

The primary terpenes found in Purple Haze include caryophyllene, myrcene, and humulene.

 

Caryophyllene, also found in black pepper, cinnamon, cloves, and other spices like oregano, is best known for its spicy and peppery notes. Beta-caryophyllene binds to CB2 receptors, hence its use in anti-inflammatory topicals and creams. Caryophyllene is the only terpene that binds to cannabinoid receptors.

 

Myrcene is the most abundant terpene in cannabis. The aroma is often described as earthy with musky notes, resembling cloves, and sometimes even has a fruity, red grape-like smell. It has also been reported that it is useful in reducing inflammation and chronic pain.

 

Humulene, besides in cannabis, can be found in clove, sage, and black pepper. Its aroma contains earthy, woody, and spicy notes. It has a variety of medical properties. Early research has shown that it prevents cancer cells from growing. In addition, it often suppresses appetite, reduces inflammation, relieves pain and fights bacterial infections.
