Purple Haze and its Influence
Purple Haze is a song that was written by Jimi Hendrix, which was released way back in 1967. It has been a huge hit on record charts in several countries. The writer said that it was a love song. However, many people wondered about whether Purple Haze is indeed a love song or a song that expresses his experience in consuming psychedelic drugs. This is due to a certain line in the song, “purple haze all in my brain”. It also contains the line “‘scuse me while I kiss the sky”.
The writer of Purple Haze, Jimi Hendrix has been very popular, especially when it comes to creating loud and sexual music in the 1960’s. He was also a very influential electric guitarist in the history of the music industry. That is why its listeners have welcomed the song Purple Haze when it was released in England. Due to that, he has received an offer to perform at the Monterey International Pop Festival that led to his popularity in the US. Purple Haze also paved way for him being influential among its citizens.
During this time, a drug called the “Monterey Purple” was soon named as Purple Haze after the popular song of Hendrix. It was first named for the said festival and it was believed that it was the drug that he consumed before he went onstage. Purple Haze is a purple Sativa marijuana that provides a high and powerful effect. It was originally used in describing LSD’s purple form. Purple Haze has even become popular after the song has been released and known all over the different parts of the world. In fact, the word “haze” was not even used in identifying marijuana before the mentioned strain was created back in 1970.
Apart from the said strain, the song entitled Purple Haze has also led to the creation of a brand having the same name. They offer lollipop that could be purchased from novelty candy stored and even from some convenience stores. What makes the Purple Haze lollipop brand different is that it comes in marijuana flavour, in which hemp oil is used in flavouring it that provides a taste that is similar of that of the marijuana without the person consuming it being high. Although this is the case, the advocates aiming to fight drugs in the U. have criticized the Purple Haze lollipop.
Purple Haze has been greatly cherished by some due to the reason that it has high-energy stimulation in the cerebral part of our brain that makes its consumers feel contented all throughout the day. It was believed that it came from the parent strains Haze and Purple Thai, which gives off its earthy and sweet flavors. Thus, there has been an increase in its users, especially after it has been named after the song. Considering the things mentioned before, there is no doubt that a song could indeed be powerful, just as how the song Purple Haze was able to influence our modern culture.
