John Grow #5 submitted his most recently harvested Purple Haze #1 by Positronics. John Grow #5 introduces the first sativa to the review series and one with a famous name. Jimmy Hendrix’s namesake-song Purple Haze launched the strain into fame. Positronics’ Purple Haze #1 is a sativa-dominate strain produced from Mexican, South Indian and Thai genetics.

The Purple Haze #1 sample tested at 19.495% total THC and 24.375% total Cannabinoids. This terpenes profile led with β-ocimene (16.6%), which was the first time this terpene had led this series or any other review, and followed by another rare primary terpene in fenchone (14.7%). The rest of the terpenes were β-myrcene (9%), trans-caryophyllene (6.3%), limonene (4.8%), β-pinene (3.9%), α-humulene (3%), α-pinene (3%), linalool (3%), α-bisabolol (3%), and other terpens (28%).
The Medical Results
The fluffy Purple Haze #1 buds are light green and thick with dark orange pistils. With the high percentages β-ocimene and fenchone, the bud delivers an extreme cooling mint and pine fragrance with notes of wood and camphor. The flavor hits with a something similar to a mint and pine licorice. On the exhale, though, an earthy, woody, lavender, and camphor dominate the taste. The aftertaste is again the mint, pine, and cinnamon.
The cerebral effects were the tradition euphoric sativa-dominant traits with a strong but focused with an overall energy boost. With heavier doses the mental focus can wane. But the body buzz is more similar to a night indica. Warmth spreads throughout the body in waves that make you feel as if buoyant on top of the waves. This includes the head high, which is light and relaxing without heaviness around the temples or back of the head.
Medical Patient Homegrown vs. Cultivators
So is this Medical Patient Homegrown not as good as, as good as, or better than dispensary flower? Or is it the fire of Illinois medicine? John Grow #5 has craftily grown a strain he can’t purchase or find otherwise in Illinois, and (as mentioned below) he is looking for specific strains that help specific needs. And this point, Illinois dispensaries cannot always offer that.
Patient Growing Experience
How long have you been a registered Illinois Medical Patient? I’ve been a patient since early 2019, but started medicating as early as 2010.
How long have you been growing your own medicine? My 2020 started in April of 2019 in terms of cultivation. My first genetics were Blue Widow, G6, and Gelato.
Why did you start growing your own medicine? I started growing because I went on a trip to pay homage to my childhood summer trips to Colorado after turning 21. I tried Sour Tsunami and several other “exotics” that seemed to be the only things that actually helped provide relief. Prior to getting a medical card, my neurologist had tried everything up to heavy doses of anti seizure medication to help relieve migraines from permanent nerve damage. The next option on the list was heart medications and, due to my already low blood pressure, these medications would have been impossible to go on. Through cannabis I found an alternative to these pharmaceuticals, and I enjoy knowing what side effects to anticipate from medications (cannabis’s are much more tolerable than the big pharma, pun intended).
What do you want to add about growing at home in Illinois? I think if a patient has the ability to grow within their given circumstances, everyone absolutely should try it at least twice. I have yet to try a homegrown that disappoints me like some other options medical patients have available within the means of the law, of course.
