About Amnesia Haze
The name would suggest an extremely potent Indica strain that will have you sinking into the couch forgetting about every single task you were supposed to do. However, while very potent, Amnesia Haze is a Sativa dominant strain that is famed as a mood booster and will keep you up and energetic even after the smallest of hits.
Amnesia Haze can trace its roots back to its staple strain Haze, which was made up of several different landraces from Thailand, Hawaii and Afghanistan. The strain would be perfected in the Netherlands however by expert cannabis growers after eventually breeding and growing the strain we know and love today.
Amnesia Haze Genetics
Amnesia Haze was carefully created by crossing its parent strains Haze and Afghani. This strain is well known as a very potent weed with a high THC content. The level of THC in the Amnesia Haze strain ranges between 20-25%. Only trace amounts of CBD are contained in this heavy hitter which makes for a strong cerebral high. The Indica:Sativa ratio falls at 20:80, meaning if you are looking for a nice relaxing smoke, Amnesia Haze may not be for you. The terpenes myrcene, caryophyllene and limonene are all abundant in this strain. These combined give the strain its mood-boosting and therapeutic effects.

These are some of the best plants for industrial cannabis production as they can grow up to over 2 meters and yield 700g of cannabis per plant if the conditions are absolutely perfect and in full sun.
