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.

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.
