With 25% THC, Liberty Haze certainly has the power to set you free from physical pain and negative emotional states, releasing you into an uplifting and energetic Sativa high. Interestingly, however, this strain is only 60% Sativa, which means there is enough in the way of Indica genetics to deliver a warmly relaxing body buzz, without leaving you couchlocked. This means that although Liberty Haze is typically seen as a daytime strain and is used to treat pain, fatigue, stress and depression without excessive drowsiness, you could feasibly use it at night without destroying your chances of getting any sleep. It could even help to relax you and clear your head before bed, although if you are actually looking for a strain to treat insomnia specifically, there are far better choices available.
While the taste of Liberty Haze does have woody sweetness to it, it also has the freshness of menthol pine and citrus lime as well as clear herbal notes. Interestingly the aroma is much more robust with plenty of earthiness and skunk pungency to go with sweet wood and clean, crisp pine.
Indoors, Liberty Haze will need about 9 to 10 weeks of flowering time and can yield up to 600g/m2. Outdoors, it will be ready around the end of September or start of October and can yield up to 600g per plant.
In terms of growth, this strain is almost a bonsai Sativa in the sense that it typically maxes out at about a metre. Barney’s Farm says that the strain has a growing range of 50 cm to 1M, but realistically we would say 90 cm to 1M is more likely unless you actively use plant training. Colas are long and thick and by the end of the flowering period they are very dense, which is how such a small plant can produce such excellent yields.
Liberty Haze will grow happily indoors or outdoors and is a nicely straightforward grow. It should be within the capabilities of beginners who feel up to handling photoperiod strains and would be a good choice for people moving on from autoflowering strains. As an added bonus, if you expose it to cooler temperatures at night, you can trigger colour changes which make this strain even more attractive.
