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.    

Potential Positive Effects of Amnesia

Amnesia's effects are decidedly sativa. Amnesia should make a user feel uplifted, happy, relaxed, giggly, and creative. The strain's sativa buzz eventually translates into a more substantial body stone. Due to the strain's relatively balanced high, most versions of Amnesia strains are reasonably sociable and ideal for sharing. However, due to the strain's contested lineage and the number of variants on the market, Amnesia's effects can vary based on breeder and region.

Potential Medical Effects of Amnesia

Medical patients enlist Amnesia to treat physical and mental symptoms of stress, pain, depression, headaches, fatigue, and anxiety. Patients also say that Amnesia can effectively help treat nausea and migraine.

Potential Negative Effects of Amnesia

The most commonly reported negative effects of Amnesia are dry mouth and red eyes. Paranoia can set in if someone unused to high THC content consumes too much.

Lineage of Amnesia

Dinafem Seeds claims that they produced the Original Amnesia strain while other international growers have attempted to create a similar quality product. Other breeders have created Amnesia varieties from strains like Skunk #1, Jack Herer, and Cinderella 99. Dinafem seeds claim that the Original Amnesia is the number 1 coffee shop hybrid strain of Holland. Amnesia possesses award-winning genetics and varieties by different breeders frequently tops the High Times Cannabis Cup winners list.

Growing Amnesia

Amnesia takes a reasonably long time to flower at up to 12 weeks but can produce above-average yields for the dedicated grower. Amnesia plants often reach a moderate height of around 3.5 meters. It is relatively easy to grow and a productive plant to have in your indoor and outdoor greenhouse.

Generally, it takes the strain around 65 days to flower when grown indoors. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest by the end of October. When grown indoors, Amnesia plants can yield up to 600 grams per square meter. When grown outdoors, the strain's production capacity doubles and can reach 1200 grams per square meter of the plant.

Where to Find Amnesia

Since Amnesia is an elusive collection of strains loosely fitting a general phenotype, it is difficult to find. Your best bet of finding Amnesia in a dispensary is in the Pacific Northwest, such as Oregon and Washington, or Colorado.
