Among the most upbeat of Sativa buds, few strains carry as much reverence and respect as the classic Lemon Haze. A sweet scent of citrus, attached to a knockout blow, sends your mind spiraling into a messy, foggy nirvana – what more could you ask for?
With its equally skunky, sour aroma and potent, euphoric effects, the Lemon Purple Haze strain aims to be a worthy successor. But can it really stand up to that intimidating task?
What is the Lemon Purple Haze Strain?
The recipe for Lemon Purple Haze is simple: take a sharp, biting flavor, combine it with potent euphoric effects, and finish off with a pleasant high-THC buzz that also gives this powerhouse strain plenty of potential for therapeutic use.
This pungent bud comes from a notoriously potent Indica, but it stays classified as a sativa-dominant bud. For that reason, those who seek balanced effects will enjoy this classy strain that provides a strong punch of flavor and relaxation.
Lemon Purple Haze Strain Appearance
You know you’ve got something special on your hands when a mere look at the buds of Lemon Purple Haze tells it apart from the crowd. Its large, trumpet-like nugs glow in moody, dark shades of green and purple, with trails of orange-to-red hairs running along the surface like veins.
Lemon Purple Haze Strain Genetics
The genetic ancestry of Lemon Purple Haze is one for the cannabis history books. Based on a cross of Lemon Haze and Purple Kush, it combines the best of two beloved representatives of entirely opposite lineages.
Whereas Lemon Haze is the strain’s obvious inspiration, with its sweet-sour citrus flair and classic Sativa head highs, Purple Kush comes out of a completely different corner. Coming from a line of experimental strains, it injects “alternative” flavors into the godfather of powerful Indicas, OG Kush.
Lemon Haze can trace its origins back to Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk, two hybrids that each got popular through their combinations of high potency and distinctive, gripping flavors and effects.
Like its closest family, Lemon Purple Haze is a relatively powerful strain sitting at just above 20% in terms of average THC content. CBD levels are as restrained as you’d expect them to be for such a heavy-hitting Sativa hybrid, at about .5% on average.
While no record-setter, we still wouldn’t recommend a THC-heavy strain like Lemon Purple Hazer to newcomers or those with low tolerances.
Lemon Purple Haze Strain Terpenes
Myrcene, limonene, and linalool lend Lemon Purple Haze plenty of fruity, spicy, and kushy vibes. These three are also among the most medicinally potent terpenes in cannabis in significant concentrations, making it even more of a mystery why Lemon Purple Haze hasn’t picked up in popularity among the medical cannabis crowd.
Lemon Purple Haze Strain Effects
Taking mostly after its parent Lemon Haze, Lemon Purple Haze’s effects are nothing short of exhilarating. A sharp burst of euphoric energy hits you very early on, transforming your body and clearing your mind of distractions. This strain is all about movement and inspiration, both in the physical and creative realms.
Unlike what you might expect, it doesn’t stop there. Lemon Purple Haze also has a pretty neat kushy surprise up its sleeve, courtesy of Purple Kush.
This will start as a strong tingle that spreads throughout the body, followed by an increasingly strong, forceful wallop of uplifting relaxation. After about half an hour, you can prepare to head to the couch as the effects will add more weight to your body.
The whole show coalesces in an experience that can only be described as Peak Kush: a dreamy, relaxed, and physically entirely sedated state of bliss, free of worries or qualms.
Overall, Lemon Purple Haze takes you on a ride that goes on for far longer and covers more ground than what most others would be capable of. That alone makes it exceptional – not just for Sativa hybrids, but for popular cannabis strains overall.
Lemon Purple Haze Strain Reported Flavors
Like much about this strain, Lemon Purple Haze’s flavors are a clash of different worlds that brought together jive better than you probably expect.
First, you have a sweet, fruity character reminiscent of berries, grapes, and lemon that you would expect – a very similar affair compared to the original Lemon Haze.
But then there’s a surprising twist: a dash of spicy, sour notes hinting at diesel without fully reaching that end of the spectrum. All in all, this is an extremely enjoyable and lively strain to smoke.
Lemon Purple Haze Strain Growing Info
With no grave pitfalls, you can expect Lemon Purple Haze to be fairly easy to grow.
This strain is known for its toughness and resistance to even significantly tricky weather conditions. It survives well in a large variety of climates (barring extremes, of course) and its flowering period of about 8 weeks on average makes for a solid, if not overly generous yield.
Strains Like Lemon Purple Haze Strain
Lemon Purple Haze does plenty to distinguish itself from others, both close relatives and more distant cousins in the world of cannabis. But what if this one scratched an itch that now just won’t stop?
We know the feeling. Those Kush-like euphoric effects with their playful mental effects and excellent buzz are properties that are hard to replicate – but some of the world’s best growers have tried, and they came up with trailblazer strains like Delta-8 Zombie Kush.
The original Zombie Kush was already a powerhouse. Just as potent as Lemon Purple Haze, if not more so, its cerebral hit has amassed a large fan base and plenty of derivatives.
However, we wanted to add an edge. That’s why the delta-8 version of this apocalyptic strain has become a favorite among curious smokers.
With a smoother, gentler, yet in many ways more heady high free of anxiety, Delta-8 Zombie Kush is one of the best strains in the world for couch-ready, high-THC Kush highs with a sour edge.
Delta-8 Abacus 2.0 follows a similar path but in the tradition of a potent CBD strain, now reimagined through the power of Delta-8. Perfect for the late evenings and nighttime, it delivers a strong cerebral high that winds you down and lifts your spirits simultaneously.
Subtle flavors of berries and fruits complement these effects nicely.
We also couldn’t go without mentioning the latest riff on one of our absolute favorite hybrid strains, Delta-8 Sour Hawaiian Haze. Already among the most distinctive and unique cannabis varieties around, Sour Hawaiian Haze benefits greatly from the added flexibility that the Delta-8 provides. Now accessible to a wider audience without being even the tiniest bit downgraded in potency, this tropical classic should be on everyone’s list as a cool, everyday strain that’ll turn even the cloudiest skies and grimmest days into a Pacific beachside paradise.
