A cannabis industry veteran, Haze is sativa through and through. Use this marijuana strain to boost creativity and give you the gift of gab at social gatherings.
A long-time staple in the cannabis industry, Haze first originated in Santa Cruz, CA, in the 1960s. Descended from a variety of sativa landraces, Haze was brought to Amsterdam in the 1980s, where it was further developed by a breeder named Nevil. Thus, this strain is also sometimes referred to as Nevil’s Haze.
Though Haze in flower form can be a rare sight these days, you’ve likely encountered many of its offspring on dispensary shelves, like the popular Super Silver Haze and Amnesia Haze.
Haze is known for having an herbal scent that’s also citrusy and earthy. Its buds don’t boast the high THC content or colorful, shelf-worthy hues of some marijuana strains. But don’t let this fool you: Haze packs a cerebral punch.
Indeed, this marijuana strain’s buzzy, mental effects are not well-suited to beginners. If you’re often subject to paranoia or anxiety while consuming cannabis, you may want to steer clear of Haze and its associated offspring.
However, if you’re looking for an uplifting, energizing experience, Haze is a good fit. Bear in mind that true to its name, Haze can make your thoughts a little foggy. So don’t consume it if you’re trying to knock out a to-do list. As the high from Haze wears off, you may find yourself ready for bed. For this reason, Haze is best used in the late afternoon or on a weekend when you can afford to take a luxurious nap.
Haze’s energizing nature means that it’s often used by medical marijuana patients looking to relieve fatigue, stress and depression. This marijuana strain is also known to boost appetite and quell nausea, making it helpful for those undergoing chemotherapy.
