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.
