Haze (Cannabis)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Haze refers to a Cannabis sativa-dominant strain. Haze has high THC and low CBD content and is known for its psychedelic effects, sometimes referred to colloquially as "ampheta-weed" for their uplifting qualities. Because of its long flowering times (often double that of an indica based strain) and tall stature, haze is rarely seen in its pure form but instead is a popular choice for breeders and is the parent to many prized subset strains.

History[edit]

This Cannabis strain was originally bred in the 70's in California and was taken to Amsterdam by David Paul Watson also known as the Skunk man to grow it for commercial breeding in the 80's for the Cultivators Choice seed bank.[1]

Genetics[edit]

The genetics of this strain are a combination of Sativas originally from Mexico, Colombia, Thailand and India.[2]
