Haze Cannabis the story
Super Silver Haze Cannabis plant in bloom
Haze cannabis origins to Purple Haze
Our story begins in the late 1960s in Santa Cruz, California, where a mild climate and dry autumn allowed breeders to extend their outdoor season until after October. Here along the California coastline, the Haze brothers cultivated an exotic strain of cannabis, which quickly gained fame among a small group of Cannabis connoisseurs. The original Haze Cannabis includes rumors genetics from Thailand, Mexico and Colombia causing a heavy Sativa push. The high is celebratory and encouraging, with almost no limit to the droning.
Joe Haze, one of the aforementioned Haze brothers, was quoted in Grow American No. 63 (November 1980 issue) as saying, "The stuff grown up there (Northern California) is mostly indica but it is soon harvested around to protect it from frost. In our province, the plants produce resin until December and our plants are grown from sativa seeds. "Four Haze phenotypes of Haze cannabis were nicknamed, Gold, Silver, Purple Haze and Blue.
Regardless of their potential, the Haze seeds went unnoticed until the late 1970s until the famous breeder Sam the Skunkman began to produce and refine his own batches. In 1984, he brought her to Holland where he sold her under the name "Sacred Seeds". With a flowering period of 12 to 16 weeks, the original Haze gained among the breeders the reputation as a difficult and delicate plant which is difficult to grow. Many preferred the cultivation of Skunk and Northern Lights seeds at this time. (The original Haze is still available today, the seeds are produced by Flying Dutchman)
However, those who brought cannabis to maturity were rewarded with sticky lances of spicy buds. The colas need to be well cared for, over-fertilization or too much water will damage the delicate branches. Nets or bars are a must to keep the tops from kinking and falling off under their own weight. The long thin leaves and scrubby buds are characteristic of a pure sativa plant like the Haze.
The Haze wave
In the 1980s, legendary seed producer Nevil Schoenemakers bought a seed selection from a connoisseur from New York, which also included the original haze of the Haze brothers. After taking the seeds to Amsterdam, he started a breeding project to create a more stable version. Schoenemakers brought Nevil's Haze out to serve the cannabis smokers and everything changed. Marijuana historian Mr. Haze 420 said, "Nevil's Haze is one of the strongest sativas I've ever smoked."
At the end of the decade, Haze Cannabis hybrids made it easier for breeders and smokers to appreciate the amazing qualities of the variety. Nevils' Seed Bank brought out NL # 5 x Haze in 1989 and Sensi Seeds followed shortly thereafter with their Silver Haze which won the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup later that year. In the 1990s, Green House Seeds surprised the scene with their Super Silver Haze.
Around the same time, eager breeders in Florida began to produce a fabulous, bright orange product called Miami Haze. These tight little nuggets traveled along the I corridor to East Coast centers such as New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia, changing the smoker scene with the characteristic "up" high. Nicknames such as Crippes, Piff and Pude refer to a high quality product with downright psychedelic effects. Many smokers thought they had a panic attack after their hearts began to race from these almost pure sativas.
Now there are plenty of Haze cannabis hybrids that regularly win the Cannabis Cup and impress visitors to the Amterdamer Coffeeshops. They are perfect for smoking during the day, they are inspirational and creative, and they encourage a walk in the park or a museum visit. Unobtrusive aromas of malt beer, chocolate and sandalwood are felt for a long time after eating a haze joint on the tongue. Haze will continue to win prizes and is an exceptional resource for breeding new flavors and flavors.
Sam Skunkman commented on the infamous Purple Haze debate at a popular Weed forum: "Yes, Purple Original Haze is absolute reality. It was for more than a decade, in the late 60s and 70s in Umaluf, from then on as hybrids. There was Silver, Blue, Reddish, as well as Purple Haze and the Blacks. I bred, smoked and saw them all, they were real. Purple Haze was the original Haze cannabis with Colombian influences (phenotypes).
