The Purple Haze of today is definitely not the same Purple Haze Hendrix made famous back in the 60's. I've personally never seen it, but all the other "purple" strains I've smoked have had some purple in the buds. For the most part, though, purple nugs don't mean shit. If a plant gets too cold, it starts to turn purple. That's it. The bud definitely looks prettier, but other than that it just means the grower fucked up or did it intentionally to improve the bag appeal. Some strains naturally come out purple, but mainly it's a temperature thing.
