Did you know that Sweet Amnesia Haze (also known as sweet amnesia haze) is good for stress and chronic fatigue?

This sativa day strain is definitely something to puff on when you are getting into a busy day and want to micro-dose or just sitting the office and let those creative juices Flow; either way this high-yielding flower is definitely a go-to if you’re having a bummer day or need a pick me up! So let’s learn some more about amnesia haze.
What does it Look Like?
Sweet Amnesia haze has thin lime peel green leaves that attribute to it’s obvious heavy sativa genetics, so you don’t really get much diversity until about 8 weeks from germination, that’s when the real beauty begins. At full maturity it gets between 4ft indoors and 6ft outdoors (could be more), in veg you get heavy citrus scents that deepen later into flower; by week 2 of flower you should start to see small white hairs form at the top of the colas and by week 6 its leaves should be as frosty white as its colas, sparkling under your lighting as if it was covered in diamond dust and its beauty lasts until about week 8 when you chop, dry and smoke.
Is Growing Sweet Amnesia Haze Easy?
The short answer is YES, indoors or during spring and summer (if not in an always sunny state) because it doesn’t do well with temperature drops. This is a rapidly growing strain with record high yields (no pun intended) so anticipate setting a few hours off to the side at the end of your grow for chopping and drying. This strain also needs extended periods of attention due to its longer flowering periods ranging from 8-10 weeks. This includes checking the ph levels, protective measures (pest control), training etc. Pruning once a week after about 3-4 established nodes also helps sweet amnesia haze due to its naturally bushy nature for optimal light and air penetration.
Conditions for Growing Amnesia Haze:
Amnesia haze can be grown either in outdoor (field) or indoor (greenhouse) and require warmer climates, about 70 ° -85 °F (21-29 °C temperature can vary). Though the veg stage requires a slightly more humid environment for most plants and germination, this plant does best at no more than 60% humidity; so provide optimum conditions and get maximum growth. Your media (if organic growing) should contain all necessary nutrients or your water should when hydrating plants and I hate to stress this but with this particular strain you you should pay close attention to airflow needs because it can get bushy and without regular defoliation, pests or even mold can become an issue. If you are growing in pots, be sure to have a big enough pot to start or multiples sizes if transplanting if growing in dwc change water once per week. The yield of sweet amnesia haze can vary from strain to strain; but is usually about 400-650g or about 1- 1.5 pounds. Always pick a high-yielding cultivar, a site I use Seedsman.
