Purple Haze: The rock star among marijuana strains!

Purple Haze

Regarding Cannabis, "Purple Haze" is often used as a designation for a specific strain of marijuana that has a purplish color. The strain was originally developed by a breeder named "DJ Short" and is known for its high THC-Gehalt and its süßen, fruchtigen Geschmack. Some people also believe that the "Purple Haze" strain is a reference to the song by Jimi Hendrix and that it is sometimes sold under the name "Hendrix Haze." However, it's important to note that the use of cannabis is illegal in many parts of the world, and there may be associated health risks when consumed.

Purple Haze is an 85/15 sativa-dominant strain. The origin is unknown, but experts believe it is a cross between the popular Haze and Purple Thai strains.

Medical patients also use it for nausea, migraines, and chronic pain.

The THC content of Purple Haze can range from 16 to 21%, which is typical for a sativa, while the CBD content is usually between 0.1 and 0.5%, making it an extremely beneficial strain. The CBN content is typically 0.01-0.05%.

Purple Haze is highly recommended for beginners as it is very easy to grow and is. With a flowering time of 8 to 10 weeks, this plant produces extremely high yields indoors and outdoors. Indoor yields up to 600 grams / m2. Outdoors, up to 1500 grams / plant. It also stands out for its high resistance to diseases. For Purple Haze, growers recommend a sunny climate.

The typical terpene content of Purple Haze is about 0.67% beta-caryophyllene, 0.5% humelen, 0.17% myrcene and a handful of other 0.1% terpenes (linalool, alpha and beta-pinene, etc.). This combination of oils has a calming, analgesic and anti-inflammatory effect, especially in Purple Haze wax.

Purple Haze buds are strikingly deep green with rich purple hues. It tends to have long, large flowers surrounded by huge leaves. The flowers are covered with a thick layer of sweet, sticky resin. Some varieties even have purple hairs with slight blue undertones.

What are purple strains known for?

Purple varieties are known to produce large amounts of the terpene myrcene and the cannabinoid THC. These strains are usually descended from Purple Afghani, which is sometimes crossed with Skunk. Purple varieties are known to produce the pigment anthocyanin (purple color) to protect themselves from sunlight. This color belongs to a class of plant pigments called flavonoids. The flavonoid anthocyanin is responsible for the red, and purple pigments in Purple Haze. The hue depends on the pH; a more acidic plant shows red pigments, a more alkaline plant has blue hues, and a neutral plant in between produces purple flavonoids.

IS THERE A BENEFIT?

Purple Haze marijuana is primarily a cosmetic novelty, but those who enjoy it will probably be glad to know that it could have potential benefits. Anthocyanins are known to be powerful antioxidants and are believed to have analgesic, neuroprotective, and anti-inflammatory effects.

Anthocyanins are found in antioxidant-rich foods such as grapes, blueberries and raspberries. Antioxidants are also known to have anti-inflammatory effects in the body. Although there is no scientific research, there is a possibility that purple strains act in the same way.

  • ANTHOCYANES ARE THE PURPLE IN PURPLE HAZE

Anthocyanins are a group of 400 water-soluble pigments found in cannabis. Some strains contain them in greater amounts than others, which is why certain strains have the ability to turn purple while others do not. However, it's not just the purple color, anthocyanins can also turn red or blue depending on the pH, but this is not often seen as the pH levels that cause this discoloration are harmful to the plant.

The color change from green to purple/purple occurs during the last weeks of flowering when the flowers produce large amounts of anthocyanins. Since the flowering period is characterized by fewer hours of sunlight, less chlorophyll is produced. This allows the anthocyanins, which are otherwise blocked, to "glow." This change can also be observed in plants with low levels of anthocyanins, which are responsible for the golden-orange hues that sometimes appear.

  • PROMOTION OF PURPLE COLORATION

Some varieties naturally turn purple because they have been selectively bred to do so. However, the inherent potential of these varieties can be enhanced through certain breeding techniques. First, you need a variety that naturally produces large amounts of anthocyanins. Examples of this are Northern Lights, Purple Haze, Blue Cheese and Blueberry Kush.

The secret to boosting the color of these beauties is to lower the temperature in the grow room during the last two weeks of flowering. It should be constantly below 10 degrees Celsius, but always above 4 degrees. It is not clear why this brings out the anthocyanins, but it works.

It should be noted that it is pretty safe to do this, but a sudden reduction in temperature can send your cannabis into shock. So be careful and take it one step at a time.

Some guides claim that if you deprive the cannabis plant of oxygen, carbon dioxide and certain nutrients, the buds will turn purple. This should never be attempted and is a completely wrong way to achieve discoloration. It is extremely unsafe for the plants and carries a high risk of compromising the quality of the final product.
