Strawberry Haze is another strain from the Netherlands created by master grower and cannabis entrepreneur, Arjan Roskam and was released to the world in 2006. This Sativa dominant weed is the result of crossbreeding Northern Lights #5, Haze Mist, and somewhat improbably, a Swiss Sativa. Not a lot of people know that Switzerland has a thriving cannabis cultivation scene as well as excellent chocolate and superb cuckoo clocks.
True to its name, this strain has a distinctive strawberry smell and the flavour continues the theme of sweet berries with the addition of exotic spices. This one hits quickly with a euphoric, energised high and comes highly recommended for creative activities and socialising. Medically, it can help with stress and poor appetite.
Constrained in 2 gallon pots, Strawberry Haze seeds will grow to about one metre, but given free rein can soar up to three metres. The side stems have an upward growing tendency and the bright green leaves are quite spindly. The round buds are dense with a coating of sticky resin and thin hairs. THC content ranges from 15 to 20 percent.
Grown indoors, Strawberry Haze will produce the most flavor grown in soil, while hydro may give higher yields but less flavour. Its vertical growth habit means you can fit up to four plants per square metre of growing area. Flowering is from 10 to 12 weeks and yields are 500 to 600 grams per square metre.
Its long flowering period means that you can grow it outdoors, but only if you are in an area free of frost to the end of October when the plants are ready for harvest. Yields per plant can be as high as 800 grams.
To conclude this Strawberry Haze review, if you enjoy the buzzing energy that typifies the Sativa hit and you like a fruity flavor, give this weed a serious consideration. Strawberry Haze is reasonably easy to grow, at the top end of the potency scale and a good yielder.
