Amsterdam Strain Review – Amnesia Haze


By Frederick Walker

Amnesia Haze is one of the all time classic, very trippy and very famous strains. This sativa dominant hybrid (80% Sativa/20% Indica) has the kind of high that boosts your  mental energy. The genetics of this strain goes back to the South Asian and Jamaican landrace strains. When it was released in the Netherlands in 2003, nobody expected that it would gain big popularity so fast. Amnesia Haze did not take long until it was entered in the 2004 Cannabis Cup where it won the overall 1st place. It also took 1st place at Sativa Cup 2012. Since the day Amnesia Haze appeared in the Dutch market, it has continued to grow in popularity and still is on the top of the list on coffee shop menus of Amsterdam. Although Amnesia Haze is a very popular strain in Amsterdam and in Europe in general, in Americas is not so easy to find.

Amnesia Haze has a reputation for offering one of the most deep psychedelic highs and being a great strain for all sorts of daytime activities. This is one of the first famous strains for those who like to wake and bake. It will give you a happy and euphoric high. Even if your mind gets racy,  you will not get stressed or feel uncomfortable.

Maybe it is not the right hybrid to choose if you are a newbie. But if you take the risk, you don’t have to worry, it’s just old school weed, just relax. (Amnesia Haze will help you do that anyway). Just a few puffs and the high THC content will be enough to knock you out.  After the first impression of the strong fragrance of lemon zest, the spicy sativa feels fruity with a sweet earthy taste undertone. It will not take long before the a potent kick will get you high in the holy psychedelic smoke.

Moreover, Amnesia Haze holds also some very important medical properties. Reduces eye pressure and works well for those suffering from anxiety, depression, migraines but also from chronic pain.

Anyone would enjoy nature while being high with Amnesia Haze, forests, mountains, a river or a beach will make you appreciate the natural vibe. Riding a bicycle can be also another unforgettable experience. (The strain is an invention of Amsterdam, remember?)  Also being with good friends is fun and an opportunity for laughs as the dominant cerebral Sativa will make you social and friendly.


The high is very relaxing and a Euphoric mellow cerebral high will make you smile. Amnesia Haze is a perfect strain to start your day with a smile. The uplifting, energetic buzz will push you to do things that you like, spontaneously.

Amnesia Haze requires the knowledge and experience of expert growers who have learned how to wait. The long flowering periods of the plant mean always a lot of care and responsibility, until they produce a very decent harvest. When grown indoors, she will take 12 weeks to flower and could give 500-600 grams/m2. When grown outdoors, she needs a lot of sun and the warmth of hot climates. This Haze needs also a lot of care as it’s a sensitive plant. With a little extra love your plant will compensate you.
