amnesia haze strain
Brought to the world by the legendary scientists over at Netherlands-based cannabis company Soma Seeds, Amnesia Haze is yet another one of their powerful and potent haze type strains generated for marijuana consumers to enjoy globally.
The meticulous and professional breeding techniques that were used to develop this cannabis strain have not gone unrecognized; in fact, Amnesia Haze has won 1st place at the 2004 Cannabis Cup, as well as 1st place in the 2012 Sativa Cup.
A previous Cannabis Cup winner, Amnesia Haze is an absolute must-try for any serious weed consumer.
Amnesia Haze has withstood the test of time, and will probably still be winning awards years (or even decades) down the road. Nowadays you can stumble upon this superb sativa in most coffeeshops around Amsterdam (where Amnesia has gained mass popularity and has become a favorite of patrons), or in both medical and recreational U.S. dispensaries alike.
What Is the Amnesia Haze Cannabis Strain?
Often referred to as an ‘ultra-hybrid,’ the technically sativa classified Amnesia Haze cannabis strain has an incredibly diverse and dynamic genetic lineage – one aspect that shows the type of precise care and consideration the breeders took over at Soma Seeds to produce this happy-vibes bringing lady.
Amnesia Haze is indeed a genetic smorgasbord of sorts, with its cannabinoid profile drawing reference from such parent plants as:
- Jamaican Sativa
- Hawaiian Sativa
- Thai Sativa
- Afghani Indica
- South Asian Indica
- Cambodian Sativa
- Haze Sativa
As you can see, the relatives of Amnesia Haze are predominantly landrace strains, which is possibly in part what gives this cannabis type such a clean, pure high with fewer side effects than some other sativas.
Although primarily constructed of sativa genetics, there is a small amount of indica mixed in, with Amnesia’s sativa to indica ratio standing at roughly 80:20. This small addition of indica gives the Amnesia Haze strain a slightly more balanced, well-rounded high, and helps to keep the paranoia, jitters and anxiety typical of many sativas, at bay.
And best of all, with a THC percentage of 21% you can expect Amnesia Haze to be hard hitting, with just a little bit going a very long way. This is what the cannabis community can honestly call a one hit quitter.
Amnesia Haze Strain Review: Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
Probably the most overwhelming note of the Amnesia Haze aroma is its pungent earthy scent that fills up any room it happens to be in. These earthy notes slowly begin to blend into hints of citrus, lemon and even sometimes pine, creating a full-bodied and well-rounded overall profile.
The taste of AH is similar to the scent, but possesses a bit of a sweeter hint that sends the taste buds into a world of their own. The smoke of this cannabis strain is smooth and buttery, easily traveling into the lungs, with little after cough involved, as long as you purchase a fine quality batch.
The appearance of Amnesia Haze has that classic ganja look to it, with dull, compressed sugar leaves intermittently sprinkled with orange pistils
Even with its traditional arrangement of hues, Amnesia Haze does look beautiful, with sugar leaves that are grey, pale green and sagey in color. In between the frosty, crystalline leaves are soft brassy pistils (tiny hairs), which curl and mix throughout the buds.
This crop grows medium to tall in height, and possesses a sativa-like branch structure, with many separate colas that extend from one, high growing stalk.

Unfortunately, one criteria in which Amnesia Haze falls short in is its convenience to grow. This cannabis strain is not the easiest to cultivate, as its production is reserved primarily to experienced cultivators (or those who are honestly searching for a challenging).
The Amnesia Haze crop is a bit of a paradox, as it prefers a balmy, sunny and Mediterranean style climate (which is challenging to recreate indoors) but at the same time is can be quite sensitive to pests – making it simpler to grow indoors.
If you are fortunate enough to reside in an environment where balmy, sunny, Mediterranean conditions exist, and if you monitor the plants regularly for pests, this could be an adequate solution. Most individuals, of course, aren’t lucky enough to reside in these conditions, so recreating them indoors can be difficult, because the humidity levels need to be kept down, while still there being enough heat.
Growing Amnesia Haze weed is certainly not what we would call “low maintenance” – the crop takes around 9 weeks to flower, with outdoor harvest falling around late October.
Indoor yields average around 21 ounces of bud per meter squared, while outdoor yields average a little larger at 25 ounces per plant.
