What Does Haze Mean?

Haze is a strain of marijuana that was first cultivated decades ago in California. Originally developed as a sativa-only strain, Haze has grown to become a blend of both sativa and indica, and is renowned for its THC content.

Haze was developed by the Haze brothers in the 1960s, around Santa Cruz, California, and is renowned for the unique experience it produces in users when it is ingested.


Maximum Yield Explains Haze

Most of the cannabis strains in the world today are not natural; they’re hybrids developed by growers in search of a specific set of characteristics. Haze is no different. In its purest form, Haze is a sativa-only strain. Many of the hybrids developed from it are also sativa-only, but some growers blend sativa with indica to create unique benefits.

The Haze strain itself bears a very mixed heritage, incorporating genes from South India, Mexico, Colombia, and Thailand into a unique plant.

Growers find Haze a little on the challenging side, as the flowers have a longer maturation period than other strains. This means that the plant requires a long, warm growing season (similar to that in and around Santa Cruz, where it was originally developed). This can be created artificially in an indoor growing area if outdoor conditions are not ideal.

The effects of Haze are denoted as being highly uplifting, even euphoric. They are also virtually all confined to the brain, with little to no physical aspect to usage at all. Most users note increased energy, happiness, and even creativity with this strain. It’s an important tool for combating stress, but is also used for fighting depression, headaches, and to some extent, both pain and fatigue. Some users report dizziness when using Haze, and dry eye is a common complaint, as well.
