What is the Violet Fog Strain?

The Violet Fog weed strain is a cross between the Grape Gasoline and Khalifa Mints strains, which are both indica-dominant hybrid strains. Grape Gasoline’s lineage consists of indica strain Grape Pie and hybrid strain Jet Fuel Gelato, while Khalifa Mints (from rapper Wiz Khalifa’s weed brand) comes from hybrid strains Khalifa Kush and The Menthol.

The Violet Fog strain is known for its pretty, purplish flowers which are actually olive green but highlighted by purple undertones and coated with purple-tinged trichome crystals. Orange hairs also weave throughout Violet Fog’s sparkling buds.

Violet Fog Strain Review

The effects of the Violet Fog weed strain are diverse, thanks to its hybrid genetics.

The Violet Fog strain’s high is ideal for a leisurely evening or afternoon, offering a mellow, hazy sensation that's perfect for unwinding after a long day. Violet Fog’s effects roll in slowly, just like its namesake– eventually enveloping you into a state of complete physical and mental relaxation. While your mind will be elevated with a sense of cheerful haziness, euphoria, and giggles, your body will ease into a profoundly tranquil and calming state of comfort.

Violet Fog can induce drowsiness, so it is best for nighttime use or a lazy day on the couch. Because of its soothing effects, Violet Fog is a potential reliever for chronic pain, sleep troubles, depression, mood fluctuations, chronic stress, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

According to Leafly users, the Violet Fog strain causes them to feel:

  • Uplifted

  • Relaxed

  • Sleepy

Do Purple Strains Make You Sleepy?

Not necessarily. Strains with purple coloration do not make you sleepy simply because they are purple. The color of the cannabis plant is determined by its genetics and the presence of specific pigments like anthocyanin, which is the pigment that gives plants blue, red, and purple hues.

Cannabis plant color is not an accurate predictor of effects. The effects of a cannabis strain are more closely related to its cannabinoid and terpene profiles. While some indica-dominant cultivars (like the Violet Fog strain) are purple, plenty of sativa strains are too.

If you're looking for a strain that is more likely to help you sleep, you should consider the strain's terpene profile rather than just its color. The terpenes that are best known for their sedative properties include myrcene, linalool, and terpinolene. Myrcene and linalool feature strongly in the Violet Fog weed strain, which explains its sleepy effects.
