"Got weed on the ton
I'm bangin with my hand up her dress like, unh
I'll make her cum, purple haze in my lungs"-THE GAME (f/ 50 Cent) LYRICS This Is How We Do

"Purple haze all in my eyes
Don't know if it's day or night
You got me blowin', blowin' my mind
Is it tomorrow, or just the end of time?" - Jimi Hendrix Lyrics Purple Haze

"Are You Experienced, one time I just heard that recently, I must have been high or something. Yeah, when I heard it, it was like, um, I said, 'Damn! I wonder where my head was at, when I said all those things,' you know. But I don't consider that more invention of psychedelic, 'cause it's asking a lot of questions. I said, 'Damn! Wait a minute, I feel ... you know, 'scuse me while I do this,' for a second maybe, it could be stuff like goin' in different strange areas and all this, like most curious people do. And I just happened to put it on "Purple Haze." But the way I write things, I just write them in, with a clash between reality and fantasy mostly... ALTHAM: Well, I think psychedelic to most people has connotations with LSD.

HENDRIX: Oh, you mean strictly LSD? You mean with that type of consciousness?

ALTHAM: Yeah, with dreams...

HENDRIX: Oh right! Oh yeah, well you have to give them a little bit of it to dream on, because so they can hear it over again, 'cause they might be in a different mood. Well, dreams come from different moods. So it's nothin' but moody... you know laughs." -Keith Altham Interview with Jimi Hendrix 1970

Originally meaning the hallucinogenic drug LSD. Active in micrograms (ug). A very powerful psychedelic drug. The typical dosage of LSD in one "Hit" is between 50 and 150 ug. Appropriate doses are generally viewed to be 1ug per 1kg of body weight.

LSD builds extreme tolerance quickly. Use must be spaced out by at least three days for the tolerance to go down enough to trip again, any sooner and there will be little to no effect. There is a cross-tolerance to Psilocybin, the chemical found in hallucinogenic mushrooms.

LSD was originally synthesized in 1938 by Albert Hofmann. It was not discovered to be a hallucinogen until April 16, 1943 after Albert Hofmann accidentally ingested a small amount. LSD did not appear on the streets until 1963. Before then, the experiences of LSD were restricted to chemists who could synthesize it from Ergot alkaloids derived from the rye Ergot fungus.

It was federally banned in the US in 1967, simply because the government was afraid of the alternative thought methods and "enlightenment" it created, believing it would incite rebellion among the general public. It is one of the safest drugs, legal or illegal, known to man. It is safer than aspirin or advil. So-called flashbacks are simply the result of post-traumatic stress disorder, and can happen without LSD use, mostly in wartime veterans.

The chemical name is d-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide. The term LSD is an acronym for the German name, Lyserg-Saeure-Diaethylamid.

Many people in modern days have begun using the word Purple Haze in reference to certain strains of cannabis. This is a misnomer, in reference to the original definition as stated above.

a hit of LSD in the 60's. it is not weed. people started calling it weed becasue they thought the jimi song was about weed but infact it is about acid. listen to the lyrics and you can tell that it is about LSD, not weed. some people refer to purple haired weed as purple haze but the real purple haze is LSD. jimi hendrix played every time with 1 hit of acid in each eye, 3 in his bandana, and 1 in his gums
purple haze, all around... dont know, if im COMIN UP OR DOWN.

A song recorded in 1967 by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Released as both a single in the US and the UK. The single peaked at number 3 in the UK but only reached number 65 in the US.

Some believe that the song is a reference to LSD or an LCD induced drug trip. This is not true and was comfirmed in several interviews with Jimi Hendrix as being inspired by a dream where he was walking beneath the ocean while a purple haze surrounded him. Hendrix explained a tone point that the song is about love and disclaimed any intended reference to drugs. He said that he line whatever it is, that girl put a spell on me" is the key to the meaning of the lyrics. The song got it's name when Hendrix took the phrase "purple haze" from a Night of Light, a science fiction noel written by Philip Jose Farmer that he was reading at the time.
Purple haze all in my brain
Lately things just dont seem the same
