You can take a look at the catalog of any online shop that sells cannabis seeds and you will begin to notice how some genetics predominate over others. Well, this is because there are “strain families” that are found in different types of cannabis strains including Skunk, Kush, Critical and Haze. This article will give you a better background on the Haze family. We will teach you about the Haze varieties, their history and origins, and review their qualities in depth. You will also learn about the most famous, respected, and acclaimed Haze varieties that you will not want missing from your garden.
The Haze variety is a high-powered sativa that is characterized by producing energetic and euphoric effects among users. This is what makes this variety a favorite of breeders and weed smokers who prefer an edifying and motivating experience, rather than staying stuck in their armchair. Legend has it that the Haze cannabis strain originated in the 1960s in Santa Cruz and is believed to be the result of the combination of four sativa strains: South American, Thai, Mexican, and South Indian. As a good sativa variety, the effect of Haze is rather mental, instead of physical. Therefore, it is recommended for users who need extra energy or for those who suffer from depression or demotivation. Also, it is perfect to get rid of the stress of the day.
How does Haze get to Europe?
There are several stories as to how Haze got to Europe. Some sat that the classic breeder, Skunkman, carried copies of various genetics including Haze and sold the seeds to another breeder called Schoenmakers. Another story says that the Haze brothers who are credited with creating this variety gave Schoenmakers some seeds in the Netherlands, who then crossed it with other genetics and gave life to other classic varieties today.
Characteristics of Haze varieties
Haze is recognized for its spicy aroma, which becomes refreshing as the buds are ground. When it is exhaled, you begin to notice a slightly sweet citrus aroma, something that makes it a unique strain as it has a more spicy tendency. The smoke is light and it is easy to inhale and exhale. For this reason, Haze is a great variety for novice smokers because it does not make them cough like other genetics. However, the smoke does manage to hold for a moment, so if you smoke indoors, be sure to open the windows or have a fan so that the air is not permeated by the smell of Haze.
The flavor of Haze is soft and sweet, highlighting citrus and spicy tones that will refresh you in the first puffs. At the end of each smoke, you will feel some soft, earthy notes in the background that are combined in a great way with the aforementioned flavors. If we talk about the structure and appearance of the buds, we will find olive-green flowers combined with fine orange pistils that cover the buds. The orange pistils that take on these shades as they mature add to the overall appearance of the plant and give the impression that there is a layer of orange hairs covering each bud and giving it an almost fluffy appearance.
The color of the leaves of Haze cannabis plants are dark green with pale green lines furrowing the leaves. Remember that these plants grow spiky and vertically due to their sativa tendency, which is why their lateral leaves will cover different sectors of the plant and can even cover the buds. We tell you that Haze will activate and motivate your day, however, these are not the only effects. You should also be aware of potential dry mouth and eyes. We recommend that you have a glass of water by your side to minimize such effects.
Some people have reported experiencing a sense of paranoia and an increased sense of anxiety after smoking Haze in large quantities. For this reason, we recommend consuming smaller amounts of this variety since it concentrates high levels of THC, which can cause adverse effects in people with little resistance to cannabis.
As we pointed out at the beginning of the article, several new genetics stemmed from the original Haze, which have spread throughout the world, delighting weed growers everywhere. These daughters of Haze are crosses made with other varieties or backcrosses of the original Haze, its clones, or descendants. Today, we can conclude that there is a great variety of different Haze on the market.
At this point, we are going to talk about Blue Dream, one of the most popular descendants of Haze today. This variety has earned the respect of gardeners and pot smokers in the United States and fills dispensaries both in the USA and Canada. It has since expanded around the world reaping popularity and love from cannabis fans all over the planet.
Do you know the Mystery of Blue Dream?
The story says that no one knows who made Blue Dream and its anonymous author remains a mystery today. It is only known that some of the most famous breeders in the world have taken it since its appearance to improve it and obtain Blue Dream’s greatest potential.
From here, we can tell you that Blue Dream from Blimburn Seeds is an exquisite variety that will leave you more than screwed to the sofa. Perhaps it is due to its great qualities that Blue Dream, since its appearance, has earned the respect of the world cannabis community and also the medical community that saw in these mostly sativa genetics a powerful natural medicine.

- Whether you grow indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse, you can apply cultivation techniques such as SCROG and LST. With this, you get more abundant side tails full of flowers, you maximize the yield of the growing space, and you produce bigger yields.
- When you want to have rounder buds with a fatter appearance, you can stimulate that structure by pricking the bud and also breaking the branch it is on.
