Haze Cannabis – the Royal Queen Seeds Collection
HAZE: CLOUD EATER CANNABIS
Haze varieties are extraordinary sativa strains. Albeit, with a contentious and hazy history. Sam the Skunk Man boasts his version of Haze’s true origins, while the original “King of Cannabis” Nevil Schoenmakers provides a more plausible explanation for the lineage and subsequent refinement of Haze. But even his claims are not without their discrepancies.
Concerning the very beginnings of Haze history, there isn’t much to be certain of. Both of the above parties unreservedly accredit the “Haze Brothers” from America’s West Coast as the creators of the strain. The brothers were known for cultivating a wide selection of sativa genetics, apparently growing everything from Thai to Colombian and even Mexican and South Indian strains as well. Occurring throughout most of the 1960’s and 70’s, crossing so many diverse landraces eventually resulted in what we know today as the original Haze hybrid.
SPREAD OF HAZE
During the 1980’s, these genetics found their way to the Netherlands. Through a combination of selective breeding and adaptation to indoor cultivation, the modern Haze varieties were developed. Many seed banks and European breeders would spend the best part of the next three decades continuing and honing in on this work.
Sativa connoisseurs will choose Haze over other strains at a moment’s notice. Smoking Haze is a unique, mind-expanding experience. The polar opposite of the couch-locking Kush effect, Haze is far more psychedelic and cerebral than it is physical. Whereas heavy indicas turn off the lights, genuine Haze sparks the imagination. Always a 1st choice head stash for the Cloud Eaters, Haze is truly a strain for the dreamers among us.
WHAT MAKES RQS HAZE STRAINS SO SPECIAL?
Royal Queens Seeds was founded by sativa lovers, so it’s no surprise that some of the most extraordinary Haze varieties are to be found exclusively in the RQS Haze Collection. Genuine Haze is often imitated but never equalled. However, top-shelf Haze induces trippy, euphoric vibrations like no other weed around.
Few cannabis seed banks possess authentic Haze genetics. Far fewer contain the expertise to successfully hybridise Haze if they did. Royal Queen Seeds brings the heat. Packing Fire Haze genetics and decades of master breeding expertise, our seeds are feminised and quite possibly the finest head stash strains in the game today.
SHINING SILVER HAZE
Entire seed banks have been founded on a combination of Northern Lights, Skunk and Haze genetics. By successfully hybridising all three legendary varieties into one definitive Haze hybrid strain, Royal Queen Seeds gives you the Shining Silver Haze.
Blending indica genetics with Haze is a complicated business. Striking the right balance between reduced flowering times and optimal Haze conditions is no easy feat. With Shining Silver Haze, RQS retains the trademark cerebral effects of this strain with quicker flowering times. In fact, growers can crop a heavy harvest of high flying haze nuggs in just 9-10 weeks of bloom!
Moreover, plants are far more compact and manageable when grown indoors, reaching approximately 1m. Outdoors, this strain can tower up to 2m, featuring ornaments of high-quality bud throughout. If you want top-grade Haze without the high-maintenance, accept no substitutes for Shining Silver Haze in your grow-op.
Haze is all about flying High! Sativa sybarites rejoice as we give you the lowdown on Haze and the very best Haze varieties available from Royal Queen Seeds.
Haze is a Sativa-dominant strain with a rich history that dates back to 1960s from California. Because of the long growing seasons and long flowering times, Santa Cruz was the perfect backdrop for this strain. After 2-3 decades, its popularity outgrew and haze became the parent strain to many hybrids worldwide. The genetics have crossed crossing many diverse landraces and oceans, leading to strains that originate in Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and India, eventually resulted in what we know today as the original Haze hybrid strains.
THC: the average THC content in Sativa-dominant strains is around 14%. However, haze stands out with THC ranging from 18% to 27%, Haze is a staple in the cannabis industry for decades. The aromatic buds are well worth the wait of a long.
AROMA: The spiciness of this strain draws in by the nose, but it’s the earthiness and sugary sweet flavours that have come to be associated with the name that hooks.
FLAVOUR: These buds have the classic olive green and orange-haired appearance. The uniqueness of the strain has been nearly replicated time and time again, but none have reached the perfect match. For this reason, the Haze high remains one of a kind.
EFFECTS: The high-energy that the sativa provides gives this one a creative buzz that not many can parallel. The Indica, however, counters that high energy with a completely relaxed body. This isn’t a building high; this is a “one or two hits to feel good” high, it is recommended to check limits.
MEDICAL BENEFITS: Medicinally, Haze has many applications. Because it is indeed an uplifting strain, many use it in the treatment of depression, stress, bipolar and fatigue. The stimulative features make it highly beneficial for loss of appetite, digestive issues, and inflammation. This strain has a hard come down that usually induces sleep, so many can also use it as an aid for insomnia or restless leg syndrome.
SIDE EFFECTS: Haze can have a tendency to get ahead and if smoked to excess can induce paranoia, anxiety, dry mouth, and itchy eyes.
HARVESTING: Warm temperate weather is a favourite of this plant. For expert growers who have endless amounts of patience, Haze will be the best choice.
RESISTANCE: Though it is resistant to most moulds and mildews and will produce an above average yield, this is a very long growing period and falls under the category of “temperamental and difficult to cultivate.”
POPULAR STRAINS: Includes, super lemon haze, Neville’s haze, amnesia haze, dela haze, super silver haze, chocolate haze, gipsy haze, G13 haze, blue haze and canoplope haze. These are favourite among hundreds of strains. Obviously due their high yield and unique features.
Many consider Haze to be the most popular strain in the cannabis word for many reasons. Not only it is unique in ways that many have tried to copy or borrow, but it is a perfect unwind strain for an end-of-a-long-day high. Whatever the reason for loving Haze is, it’s one of its kind.
