purple haze strain

If you’re looking for a classic trippy exciting high, the Purple Haze strain is your guy. This strain is a hybrid of the two-parent strains Purple Thai and Haze. It is mostly sativa and has anywhere from 15-25% THC.

It was popularized in the ’70s and remains a stoner favorite to this day. It’s also popular in the CBD form, but the weed strain is not the same.
