Amnesia Haze Strain
Amnesia Haze is a somewhat rare strain originally made famous in the coffee shops of Amsterdam. It is a potent sativa that is typically about 22% THC and 1% or less CBD. Similar to other haze varieties, Amnesia Haze produces a euphoric cerebral high that makes the mind wander from topic to topic. This strain is uplifting and can be consumed in the morning or afternoon without inducing heavy drowsiness. It sparks creativity but is not the best type of bud for tasks that require prolonged concentration.

The parents of Amnesia Haze include Thai sativa, Afghani indica, Hawaiian sativa, Jamaican sativa, South Asian indica, Cambodian sativa and Haze sativa. These different exotic strains were crossbred by an American expat in Holland to create Amnesia Haze. The unique blend became an attraction in Amsterdam?s coffee shops, and the strain has gone on to win two of the High Times Cannabis Cup?s most prominent awards ? overall first place in 2004, and first place in the Sativa Cup of 2012.
Despite its notable popularity in Amsterdam, Amnesia Haze was not originally a huge seller in the United States. Part of the reason for this is its particularly long flowering period of about 12 weeks. The plant also requires warmer climates for outdoor growing, though it can be grown indoors and hydroponically with success. Amnesia Haze often needs more care and attention during the vegetative and flowering cycles than other types of cannabis, resulting in a strain that can be a headache for large-scale commercial growers to produce. That said, Amnesia Haze can be found in Washington state and Oregon from time to time. It is also known to appear in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Spain.
Amnesia Haze is characterized by a cerebral psychedelic high that can become intense if consumed in large amounts. It is recommended that beginner smokers take their time with this strain and allow the effects of the first hit or two to creep in for 15 minutes or so before inhaling more. Amnesia Haze is a great strain for daydreaming and creative brainstorming, though it may be best to try another type of cannabis when it comes time to focus on a single task. While the Amnesia Haze buzz is intense, it does not induce couch-lock and therefore it is okay to consume during the day. It?s a more energetic high than most strains, making the mind race without offering a notable body high.
Due to its low CBD content and the limited body high, medicinal users don?t typically choose Amnesia Haze as their preferred treatment. However, the strain can alleviate symptoms of ADD/ADHD, depression, stress, chronic pain and even autism. Because of the energetic nature of the Amnesia Haze buzz, medical marijuana patients may opt to smoke Amnesia Haze during the day before switching to a higher CBD or more relaxing strain in the evening.
The buds of Amnesia Haze are light green with beautiful orange and brown pistils. They carry a lemony aroma with hints of citrus. Amnesia Haze has a fruity taste with hints of sweetness and earthiness. The blend of several different strains from around the world gives Amnesia Haze a unique taste with many layers.
