Purple hair california sensimillia

Back in the 70s I use to get what was just called purple hair california sensimillia. There were other kinds to be had but just about anyone you ran into had this homegrown and it was better than most of the other stuff being shipped in.
Anyone have any idea what this could have been?
It had no name other than that. It was in the monterey bay to santa cruz area got it for three years then came back home all that was available here was Mexican red hair, Columbian gold or Jamaican till the late 80s then green house skunk came to be.
That purple hair sens was the bom though.
This made me think real tie stick straight off the boat 40 dollars for like 20 of them just pull the stick and go to heaven.


Any natural purple variety like sweet seeds devil cream has naturally purple pistols and sensimillia just means seedless, the closest you’d probably get is a descendant of purple kushs and granddaddy purple


It was light green and smelled of pine

Sensimillia is literally a Spanish word (two words, actually sen simillia) meaning “without seed.” It refers to female flower.

We used to get something called red bud back in the 70s, but sensimillia was fairly rare and hard to get for us back then in the Midwest. It could have been Columbian Red, Panama Red, or Highland Gold.

Strains that smell of pine are so due to the terpine pinene.


Forgot purple hairs and ya i know what sensimillia means that is what every body called it though. Wish i had more to go on. Use to get other stuff sometimes like panama red and different kinds of columbian. There was also a lot of different mexicans. Never bought mexican smoke other people’s just never bought it. But none of them compared to that home grown. Funny story is i came from a place where home grown was crap. So when i first get out there everyone i ask about weed said I’ve got some home grown. Well i new home grown sucked so i passed on it. Till a couple fays later one of them said where you from. Itold him and he said you do know your in California try it and lit one up. I was hooked. A couple years later i got to go to a field with a guy. You know one of those under camouflage. I even seen where it was dried and cured. They had several black 32 gallon garbage bags full. Thats what they cured in. At 20 years old i thought that was the coolest thing ever.


Same here :love_you_gesture:

We never got sens here till later in the 80s and that was called green house skunk. Don’t know real name of it either but don’t care it was good real good but nothing likr california purple hair sens

Thinking about this it was never called sensimillia. It was always called California purple hair sens. That was it exactly like that. Age is a bitch.

I believe what you’re looking for is actually called(you know how that went back in the days though!) - California Mendocino Purple Sinsemilla
As mentioned above sensimilla is just descriptive and can just be dropped, leaving you with California Mendocino Purple.
Well, if you just drop California - which would have been commonplace back then - even today really, but then you have Mendocino Purple.
Which could be this strain -
" Mendocino Purps , or Mendo Purps, or even just The Purps, comes out of Mendocino County in Northern California. Winning one of the Top Ten slots in High Times’ Strains of the Year in 2007, Mendocino Purps began as a clone-only plant, but BC Bud Depot developed a stable cross to make The Purps seeds available. This cannabis strain grows well both in and outdoors. It can grow 3-4 feet at harvest indoors and 6-8 feet outdoors. Flowering time for this strain is 8-9 weeks. It has medium-thick leaves and green hues that turn more purple as the plant ripens. The taste has been likened to a caramel coffee and woodsy pine."

Does that sound anything like what you’re talking about?
