- Jamaican x Laos
- Afghani Hawaiian
Amnesia Haze by Soma Sacred Seeds was the winner of the 2004 Cannabis Cup, and is an amazing mix of Afghani Hawaiian (Hybrid), Jamaican (Sativa), and Laos (Sativa).
Over the course of my many trips to Amsterdam, I have grown to really appreciate and enjoy the Haze strains. The first haze I ever tried was the infamous Super Silver Haze. After that, I was suggested Nevil’s Haze by a bud tender at Barney’s Coffeeshop. I was in love with the uplifting sativa effects that came with the hazes.
“The spacey, cerebral effect from Amnesia Haze was perfect for wandering carelessly through the busy streets of the city.”
Upon my return to Amsterdam, my mind was set on finding as many different haze strains as possible since I was mostly deprived of them back in the US. I headed directly to my favorite coffee shop, Hill Street Blues, where I had some of the best hazes during my first trip.
The budtender was quick to recommend their Amnesia Haze and explained to me that I got there right in time for their “haze harvest”. She explained to me that hazes require longer flowering periods, and that is part of the reason why I don’t see them grown in America very often (outdoors at least). She told me that hazes require an expert grower who can handle the picky diet of the finicky plants as well as the fungus and pest problems that come with the long flowering period. When grown correctly these strains can produce huge harvest of up to two pounds per plant, which makes them worth the wait.
What To Look For With The Amnesia Haze Strain
The Amnesia Haze strain quickly became one of my favorite hazes in Amsterdam, so when I saw it on the Alpha Medic menu back in San Diego I had to get some. Although this batch of Amnesia Haze wasn’t exactly the best, I couldn’t complain after smoking one joint of it. After just a few hits of the joint a powerful cerebral high set in that was very hazy, true to the name.
“I found it hard to get any real work done on this marijuana strain, simply because my mind kept jumping between different thoughts.”
Your mind begins to race after medicating heavily with Amnesia Haze and you will find yourself daydreaming a lot. I found it hard to get any real work done on this strain because my mind kept jumping between different thoughts. It really kicks your mind into creative mode and causes you to think about random things. However, although your mind is racing you remain calm and relaxed. This amnesia haze strain is perfect for daytime medicating to forget your worries and just relax without feeling like you want to go to bed.
The buds of the Amnesia Haze were small and popcorn-shaped, reminiscent of most of the haze strains I have seen. While the buds were not very pungent in the jar, as soon as I ran some through the grinder the spicy sativa smell became very strong. It reminded me of Trainwreck because of the hints of black-pepper, but was more earthy and woody with a slight sweetness to it. The taste of Amnesia Haze was very similar, and had a more hashy flavor on the exhale.
I hope to find a better quality batch of Amnesia Haze, but because of the long flowering time this is a relatively rare strain to find in the U.S. If you see Amnesia Haze on your local menu, do not your chance to try this Soma Sacred Seeds masterpiece.
