Cannalope Haze was bred using a Haze Brothers strain and a Mexican Michoacan plant. Cannalope Haze is 95% sativa yet is a pretty fast finisher producing good yields of hard buds.
Cannalope Haze has a fair bit of stretch quite during the flowering phase and therefore indoor growers without a lot of head-room are advised to switch to 12/12 after a short period of vegetative growth to avoid any height issues. It grows in a Christmas tree shape and is suitable for a Sea of Green set-up. This plant does not like to be either over or under-fed although its nutrient requirements are not high by any means but some care needs to be taken. It is recommended not to prune too enthusiastically. The flowering time is 8 - 9 weeks which is very fast for such a predominantly sativa strain and yields are very good at between 500 - 600 gr/m2 under 600 watt lights.
The dried and cured buds are hard and very compact, especially so for a sativa plant, and they produce an aroma of sweet melon. The smoke is smooth and sweet/sour tasting with a hint of Haze spiciness. The smoke is very expansive in the lungs and the effect is a very uplifting, cerebral sensation and quite thought-provoking. It is a very resinous plant which makes great bubble hash by the water ice method. One of the best sativa hybrids and worthy of its reputation. It makes a good breeding plant due to its relatively short flowering time.
About DNA Genetics
Starting life in California, DNA Genetics’ founders enjoyed the very best selections of local strains when they started growing in the late 80’s.
In 2002 DNA Genetics decided to leave the West Coast of America and head to a more cannabis friendly environment. They settled in Amsterdam but were immediately underwhelmed with the quality of the cannabis. They decided to sell popular strains from their native California while creating brand new strains in Amsterdam such as Nevils Haze and Columbian Gold.
You can buy DNA Genetics seeds from Seedsman now. The 2x Cannabis Cup winners’ (L.A.Confidential and Martian Mean Green) original strains will not disappoint.
