This plant is probably the most well-known marijuana hybrid in the world. Thanks mostly to Jimi Hendrix. It is a tall, generally flimsy plant with family line in the Jamaican Haze (sativa) plant, Hollands Hope, and Skunk. It gets its name from the purplish buds and leaf tips.
It has a taste unique to itself and smells very much like a sativa breed. These plants are also popular because they are so hardy and easily-grown indoors. They become generally tall (up to 170cm), yet have just a multi week blossoming period. The high is energetic and relatively short-lived, making this a prescription of choice for single-hit, short-term maladies such as migranes.
