Adverse effects Amnesia Haze can cause some side effects which are similar to anticholinergic side effects. These include dry mouth, and memory loss, hence the name. Both ‘amnesia’ and ‘haze’ refer to memory loss. However, the blocking of memory reconsolidation has been linked to antidepressant action in models of PTSD and other trauma related disorders in the case of CBD and likely also the whole cannabis plant participates in provoking this amnesia to emotional events.

  • Trimming
  • Keeping humidity dry and perfect, this is a fragile plant
  • Hydroponics if you have the skill for it
  • Organic soils and nutrients. You can’t overload this plant.
  • Keeping indoors in closely monitored environment to avoid pests

  Origins, Genetics, History

Amnesia Haze Type: Amnesia Haze is a hybrid of the following strains:

  • Thai
  • South Asian Indica landrace
  • Jamaican landrace
  • Hawaiian
  • Cambodian Sativa
  • Afghani Indica

Amnesia Haze took the top spot in the Sativa Cup of 2012. It also got 1st place at the Cannabis Cup of 2004. This weed has been recognized and awarded for its smoothness and effectiveness.

It is mostly Jamaican landrace and South Asian Indica. But how did the weed get to Jamaica in the first place?  Legend has it that after slavery was abolished in the island, plantation owners brought in labor from India and with it, the ‘ganja’ which is supposedly Hindu for the weed. So, the Jamaican weed is really an Indian weed. However, it’s not impossible that there was already weed on the island that then cross-pollinated with the imported weed, creating the weed beloved by the Jamaican Rastafarians and others.

Appearance and Smell

Amnesia Haze has a fragrance which is lemon-pine on the initial toke, then out comes the spicy and earthiness to temper the tang. Your eyes and mouth will water with pleasure. Do you see all those white, shiny specs?  That’s the trichomes full of THC, the sticky of the icky. Then all those lightly-shaded whiskers hanging down like the beard of an old man. You will feel like an old man for sure when you start toking and land in the land of forgetfulness. What were we talking about now?  In all seriousness, the ability to forget actually allows us to avoid being debilitated by trauma. People who can’t forget can’t function after a trauma, and there are many such people, their brain replaying the worst episode of their lives, over and over. And they are not interested in thinking about it, they are just powerless to stop it. Well, instead of blaming the victim, we biohack the problem, in this case with the weed they wanted to smoke anyway. Can’t get any more serendipitous.

How to Grow Amnesia Haze Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings

Growing weed from Amnesia Haze cannabis seeds will take a moderate amount of effort. You want to grow indoors but to mimic a Mediterranean or Cali climate. This plant’s defenses against pests are not so good, so it produces few harsh poisons, bad for pests, but good for humans. All those chemicals that burn your throat when you smoke weed, the plant made those on purpose to stop mostly insects from eating it, but also so that you don’t just eat or smoke the whole thing without ensuring the plant’s reproduction, which is the function of the animal who consumes the plant. The strain will go extinct if you just smoke it up and don’t replant. So, most plants have some tricks up their sleeves, but this plant has been specially bred not to be harsh to humans. As a consequence, it’s also not harsh to pests and will get eaten up out there, so plant indoors. This plant has been domesticated and it is dependent on its human caretakers. Not like a rugged Kush that will grow like a weed without your help, but also not nearly as harsh as a kush.

Grown indoors, flowering can take from 9 to 12 weeks and you will get 21 ounces of weed per square meter of space.

Outdoors you need a perfect environment and pest control for this delicate plant. You can look for around 25 ounces of weed per plant in the later days of October.

Medicinal Marijuana Review

Amnesia Haze is a stimulating weed that really shines in the treatment of depression. The euphoric effect and the anti-inflammatory effect both participate in treating depression. Depression is seen both as a cognitive issue and as a matter of inflammation in the brain. Amnesia Haze also packs a punch of THC and CBD which can block reconsolidation of traumatic memories. This is a new area of research that scientists are exploring for the treatment of depression and PTSD. This is how it works. A therapist brings out the trauma in the patient by asking about the traumatic events. It is necessary to do so until the central nervous system is activated. Then, within a window of hours, CBD, THC, or propranolol is administered to block memory reconsolidation. The effect is that the emotional part of the memory is lost forever and no longer causes pain and trauma.  The brain was unable to put back together with the emotional part of the memory once it was retrieved.  Now the association of the memory is with relaxation and being high in the therapist’s office. This is how conditioning works. The experience is now paired with the memory of smoking weed and the forgetfulness so that the brain goes straight to the forgetfulness as soon as the memory is triggered. The content of the memory remains but the emotion is gone (Song, Stevenson, Guimarães, & Lee, 2016).

The effects of the haze have been described as stimulating and euphoric. This is a real Sativa. It’s gonna put some pep in your step. You will be bubbly, giggly, and socializing. This might be the weed for getting work done, but only simple tasks. Don’t operate heavy machinery. Don’t take this weed when you have a lot of responsibilities coming up because it is a strong weed. Use it only during your totally free time. The high is brainy and will put you in your brain. What you will find is whatever are the contents but you may have some creative insights or even a creative solution to a long-standing problem. The stimulation may also be good for some artistic pursuits or having the energy to produce music and behavior full of feeling and purpose.

Amnesia Haze Marijuana Strain
Average rating:  
 2 reviews
 by Alex

My mouth still waters the second I see this bud or even only think of it. Now all the reasons it has been popular for so long (and definitely will be) are clear to me.

Appearance: very light-green cone-shaped Sativa buds, fully covered in yellow crystals.

Taste: when smoking this you know this sticky and keefy bud is potent and it surely will jam up standard grinders. A few seconds after each exhale you can feel the lingering full of "THC" potency smoke coming out of your lungs. These flowers really are concentrated!

Smell: Hazey (of course), citrusy, nutty, creamy a little bit. Fine marijuana connoisseurs and sommeliers are attracted to this strain as it has a complex flower terpene profile.

Effects: in Amsterdam you might be told to stay the hell away from Indicas in the morning and prefer Sativas instead. Bullshit! This one will knock you on your ass before you even realise it. Aside from Pure Kush, this strain is the strongest shit I've ever smoked and if used before 6pm, you may be stuck.

Overall: as soon as I see this strain again, I'm buying a kilo not to run out of Amnesia Haze accidentally. Recommend it to everyone, from veterans to complete newbies. Yes, its potency won't be harmful. On contrary it will show you the real world of Cannabis.

Smoking is not my main way of consuming marijuana anymore because when I had this strain as an edible, everything changed. Your life will never be the same if you listen to me and have this one as an edible too! The literal paradise on earth waits for you, my friend. The most understandable description of how it feels like would be this: imagine riding a high that carries you through all the parents and ancestors that were used to create this beautiful strain. You can say for sure that I am damn baked right now. I ate a half of a birthday cake. And it wasn't mine but it was so tasty I couldn't help myself... As you can see, food becomes so much tastier, you would never think it could have such a versatile and strong taste, which awakes an insatiable hunger. Oh and the orgasms. WOW. Must I tell you to check it out yourself? This high is definitely not what I expected it to be... Much much better! Then I had a really personal and deep moment of tranquility and connection with the world (and every its part and being) while staring at this beautiful afterglow on the computer screen that you usually don't even notice.
