Purple Haze #1
Created in the USA during the 70s, it became famous because of the Jimmy Hendrix song. That variety differs greatly to the one offered nowadays by Positronics as, in the beginning, Purple Haze was characterised by medium-low psychoactivity and minimal production. Hazes were too pure to flower and did not develop adequately. Despite this, it was the most smoked variety at Woodstock. Since then Positronics have kept this variety a jealously-guarded secret to re-launch it nearly 40 years later to get you hooked on the hippy generation vibe that we miss so much.
Enormously vigorous plant with large, medium-thickness stems that take on purple hues. Large internodal distance, similar growth pattern to Claustrum, dividing out its branches in a fir or candelabra-like fashion thus optimising the production of floral bunches.
Moderate number of large, thin and jagged leaves. Flowers acquire purple tones with shades varying from violet to maroon, giving this variety a unique polichromy that is a real visual delight. Will doubtless become the queen of the grow room.
AROMA: Heady aroma between incense and cinnamon, slightly acidic, very peculiar.
TASTE: Revolutionary even before the mythical Skunk. Made an impact owing to its powerful high and bitter-sweet taste. Its complex flavour offers notes ranging from sweet to spicy with a very incensed aftertaste that lingers on the palate.
EFFECT: Instant high characteristic of sativas that unexpectedly allows the creative juices to flow. Purple Haze can cause a strange yet nice feeling in which objects' (including our own bodies] ability to float is enhanced while everything is enveloped in a mysterious purple mist ... be aware that this effect may not be enjoyable for beginners.
NEEDS & TIPS
Purple Haze become very big plants and will need poles and ties to support their large branches. They also require a large amount of space for their root systems and copious amounts of water. In short, not appropriate for balconies or terraces.
Outdoors, owing to its ample vegetative period, we can always delay sowing until June-July to diminish its enormous vigour because, if not, we would be left facing a hefty pruning job. Inside, we recommend forcing early flowering to take up less space. Furthermore, permanent ventilation is necessary for optimum flower development.
