Effects & Usage



Haze is an 18-25% THC sativa strain that packs a potent punch. This strain popped up in the 1960s in California as a child of four landrace sativas. It was subsequently used to develop numerous other Haze strains and is now called “Mother of Haze.” If you are lucky enough to get your hands on this gem or any of its famed descendants, you can expect a boost of energy and creativity combined with a sharp focus.


Brace yourself for the powerful effects of Haze. The cerebral rush of energy and creativity will prepare you to take on any task. But unlike its name, the effects will not leave you feeling hazy – in fact, it is just the opposite.

The Haze high hits hard and fast, giving you an instant rush of mental energy. Combined with an optimistic outlook and a heightened appreciation for your surroundings, you will feel capable of facing the challenges of your day. With increased creativity, you’ll be able to tackle even the most difficult projects with ease. In addition, you will feel a sense of uplifted euphoria rush through your body. This flower also enhances sociability and chattiness, making it a perfect companion at a social event.

It can be a perfect “wake and bake strain”, but remember that the comedown may be harsh. Try to plan for a break or nap after three hours to recharge.

If you are a fan of this strain, you may like other similarly potent sativas, such as Sour Diesel or AK-47.


The stimulating effects of Haze make it a good choice for people with chronic fatigue conditions. As it is also a highly mentally uplifting strain, it may help with symptoms of anxiety and depression by helping you find the motivation to tackle the demands of the day with newly found optimismIn addition, people with attention deficit disorders may use the focused energy surge to handle otherwise difficult and distracting tasks.

Side effects

Haze’s power is no joke. The most notable effect that this potent sativa may cause is increased feelings of paranoia, as well as dizziness, which can result in a negative experience. Start with a puff, gradually increasing the dose if needed. This will help you avoid an unpleasant trip.

Taste & Smell


Haze’s olive-green buds display several sativa characteristics: they are elongated, loose, and appear fluffy due to the large orange pistils. However, the strain’s scent and flavour are its most distinctive features. Haze is known for its distinct scent and flavour, thanks to its terpene combination: myrcene gives it the typical earthy aroma, complemented by terpinolene’s citrusy scent and the spicy, peppery notes of caryophyllene. This citrus flavour tends to linger on your tongue as you exhale the smooth, dense Haze smoke.

While the smoke is easy on the throat, its smell is pungent, so pay extra attention not to disturb your neighbours.



Haze heads back to the 1960s in Santa Cruz, California and is believed to have resulted from a crossing of four landrace sativas: South American, Thai, Mexican and South Indian. Later in the 1980s, it was brought to the Netherlands, the cannabis capital of the world, where it was perfected and crossed with many other strains. These crosses gave rise to the famous Haze family.

While you’d be hard-pressed to find the original flower in dispensaries today, this masterpiece’s legacy continues to live on in the form of multiple strains that are its descendants, such as Lemon Haze and Amnesia Haze, among many others.

Growing conditions

Pure Haze seeds are a rare and valuable find, and they will require plenty of attention like the treasure they are. Growing can be a challenge, and it requires experience in cannabis cultivation. The plant takes up to 14 weeks to flower. And while it has a high mildew and mould resistance, it still demands careful attention, frequent monitoring and patience. Therefore, it is not recommended for novice growers.

This cannabis prefers warm and sunny climates. As a grower, you must regularly ensure the bud is provided with the conditions for optimal growth. The successfully grown outdoor plants can get as tall as 2.5 metres and yield around 500 grams per plant. The indoor plants typically reach 1.2-1.5 metres and yield 350-450 grams per square metre.
