Purple Haze weed is a sativa marijuana strain popularized by Jimi Hendrix’s 1967 classic song, Purple Haze. This strain 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. Purple Haze is believed to have descended from parent strains Purple Thai and Haze, which pass on a mix of sweet and earthy flavors underscored by notes of berry and sharp spice. Purple Haze buds typically acquire vibrant hues of lavender that further justify the naming of this strain.
Medical Benefits of Purple Haze Weed
Purple Haze weed is not just a strain to give you an uplifting, euphoric high but also helps many medical cannabis patients as well. Since the strain works well to keep your mind concentrated on a job, it helps people with attention deficit disorders. Its mood-altering effects may also be beneficial for people suffering from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety.
As a classic wake n’ bake strain, it also helps people with chronic fatigue. It also has moderate anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, thereby being able to soothe minor inflammations like headaches or cramps. Purple Haze has a psychedelic effect which may induce strong patterns of recursive thinking. Therefore, people prone to panic or paranoia should stay clear of it.
The usual side-effects of consuming purple haze strain include dry eyes and dry mouth. You can solve this by consuming lots of fluids. For your eyes, you can use eye-drops from any dispensary, that will help you keep it itch-free and reduce redness.
On the other hand, higher consumption of the strain may lead to a feeling of paranoia, anxiety, and over-thinking. Just remember you have to know the limits of your body, and go slow, especially if you’re consuming edibles or are a novice user.
