As an 80% sativa hybrid, the original Haze is used many in hybrid strains today because of its potency and wide range of effects. Haze generally has a sweet and spicy flavor with a citrus or sour flavored backend. Providing a powerful cerebral effect, this strain has a divine sweet, floral aroma permeating from its dark green buds, which glisten with trichomes and tiny orange pistils.
Original Haze is recommended for more experienced growers as it can be relatively difficult to cultivate. Growing tall and thin with a long growing cycle of ten to twelve weeks means this plant requires a lot of time and attention. Best suited for indoor or dessert growing, as little moisture and a controlled environment are necessary.
While the plants themselves may be tall and thin, the roots will still need plenty of room to grow. More room to grow its roots will help ensure bigger plants and higher yields. However, be prepared to set up plant stakes as a well-nurtured Haze may get top heavy.
While most Hazes will average around 18% THC, some have been known to top out as high as 27%.
As a very potent sativa hybrid, users can expect high energy from this strain. Often euphoric and uplifting for most, the heavy cerebral effects may generate racing thoughts or exacerbate symptoms of anxiety in some consumers. However, the strong psychoactive effects of this THC-heavy strain can also create a wonderful creative energy perfect for completing projects or focusing on the task at hand.
Haze strains can also cause the typical cannabis side effects such as dry mouth and dry eyes. As mentioned, paranoia or anxiety-inducing effects may be possible, so it should be used with caution with those with a history of anxiety disorders. Headaches and dizziness are also not uncommon.
While the original Haze strain is definitely not for the weak at heart, this strain can provide a productive energy and focus, while also producing a moderate level of symptom relief perfect for those seeking a daytime solution without drowsiness. Haze is that boost of clarity you’re looking for to get the job done.
