HAZE STRETCHES ITS HISTORY AND ORIGINS. Haze strains are among the most popular sativa-dominant or near-pure sativa hybrids. Cannabis smokers around the world enjoy Hazes for its energetic, long-lasting high that doesn't stick to the couch. Since Haze has been a popular Sativa strain for the past 60 years, it has become a popular base in hybrid cultivation.
Every grower will often find slight differences in their final hybrid, which means that while a hybrid strain may have the same name, understanding the grower is just as important. Haze strains are usually sativa-dominant, with a cheerful and energetic high, and tend to have high levels of THC. They are not known to be particularly easy to grow, with a long growing period. It is a hybrid of Blueberry, a classic indica, and Amnesia Haze or Super Silver Haze, depending on the grower.
Unless you use the original Haze strain or something quite similar, it's impossible to say precisely what flavor and aroma to expect from a Haze strain without knowing what other strains it was crossed with and, more importantly, the chemical attributes, particularly the terpenes of that strain. Many Haze strains are likely to have high levels of limonene, an energizing terpene found in citrus peels that can provide that delicious lemon flavor and aroma that helps make Haze strains a fan favorite. Haze is not a pure sativa, but it is a genetic pillar of contemporary cannabis because of its expression of sativa effects, including energy, euphoria and wild creativity. It's clear that Haze has maintained its popularity and reputation, allowing us to focus on the most popular Haze hybrids.
The euphoric buzz that characterizes Super Silver Haze (a direct reference to one of the Haze Bros originals) is also ideal for some medicinal applications. Below, take a look at some of the most notable examples of Haze genetics, which make them the best Haze strains. When reading about strains or simply talking about cannabis, you also hear the terms “indica”, “sativa” or “hybrid”. A hybrid between Amnesia Haze F1 and Critical Mass, this bud is known for offering a mix of different sensations with 60% Sativa and 40% Indica.
Unlike many cannabis strains found on the market, Haze wasn't a fancy or catchy name created to match the look or smell of a product. Haze was simply the last name of the brothers known to create the Sativa strain, the Haze brothers. Hybrids are known as a cross between Sativa and Indica strains, and have become the preferred standard of many smokers, as THC and CBD levels are better controlled to create a high along with the medical benefits of CBD. Haze strains are known for having a distinctly spicy scent when smoked, although citrus and earthy scents can also be a sign that you have a little Haze in your hands.
It has not been determined to what extent the original strain was a sativa or a hybrid, nor the exact origin of all the strains that entered its genetics. Unlike the rest of the haze strains on this list, Blue Haze, or Blueberry Haze, is an indica-dominant hybrid, with fans reporting extensively relaxing, calming and deeply psychotropic effects.
