3 Purple Strains You Need To Try

You can't be a true cannabis connoisseur without dabbling in a purple strain here and there.

When opening a fresh package of cannabis, even the most experienced connoisseurs have their breath taken away by the vibrant hues of a dark purple strain. Grinding it up is another satisfying experience where the distinct aromas from the bud’s innards are exposed, hitting your nose with a scent you‘ll never forget.

Purple marijuana is perhaps some of the best weed you can smoke; take it from legendary musicians like Jimi Hendrix and his tune “Purple Haze,” which had a strain named after it. Fast forward to modern-day musicians, tracks like “Purple Swag” by A$AP Rocky and “Green & Purple” by Travis Scott and Playboi Carti continue to celebrate sticky purple kush.

Today, we want to continue that celebration and share our favorite purple strains to exist. See our top picks below and snag them for your next sesh.

Also known as “Grand Daddy Purp” or “Granddaddy Purps,” this legendary California strain is an Indica with roots from its parents, Mendo Purps, Skunk, and Afghanistan.

This strain’s blissful aromas are enough to tuck you into bed without a puff, calming the body with scents of grapes and berries. This powerful and potent strain is ideal for night use, as it’s known to stimulate creative thoughts but soothe the body with waves of euphoria and relaxation.

For those who prefer an exciting Sativa, opt for the euphoric and high-energy effects from the legendary Purple Haze strain. This strain offers a slightly lighter purple hue that resembles a lavender flower but is sure to keep you lifted with its 18% THC and bursts of creativity.

Thanks to the Jimi Hendrix song, this strain quickly became one of the most popular to exist. It’s ideal for smoking throughout the day, especially if you have some tasks to complete and need a kick of motivation.

Need some balance in your life? Try Purple Diesel, an uplifting Hybrid that stems from its parents, Pre-98 Bubba Kush and Sour Diesel. Coming in at a moderate THC content of only 15%, this strain is another great tool for motivation and focus.

The energy you get from one quick hit will keep you lifted and optimistic, while feelings of euphoria trigger your creative senses. This strain offers a diesel-like aroma with an accompanying sour taste. Purple Diesel is also sought after for users looking to manage stress and depression.
