Overview of Amnesia
The Dutch growers claim that the original Amnesia strain is a sativa dominant strain bred with a 70% sativa and 30% indica genetic breakdown. The nugs are long and tapered in typical sativa fashion and should have a seductive coating of resin crystals. The strain's jar appeal enhanced further by its multi-hued green coat and packed hairs.
Amnesia varieties often have an earthy taste punctuated with citrusy sweetness. First-hand reports also note levels of lemon, incense, and spice. Amnesia doesn’t have the highest THC content in the pack, but clocks in at a maximum of about 20%. This cannabis strain doesn’t have a consistent amount of CBD among its different phenotypes.
