About Haze Berry
Haze Berry is a sativa-dominant hybrid that leans on some prestigious genetics to deliver a potent and long-lasting high. Created by prolific Dutch breeders Royal Queens Seeds — the same people who have given us Blue Mystic and Royal Cheese, Haze Berry is a cross between Super Silver Haze and fruity staple Blueberry. Definitely a better choice for get-up-and-go sativa lovers, this strain imparts more head-focused concentrations that bodily relaxation. That said, the bud’s initial sativa stimulation eventually melts into a mellow, holistic high that’s enjoyable in a variety of settings. Haze Berry’s THC content has been measured at between 20% and 22% THC. Some phenotypes have also been reported to contain significant amounts of CBD.
Flowers of Haze Berry are somewhat visually unimpressive; they are also small to medium in size and, despite their mostly sativa genetics, hold together in dense, popcorn-like clusters. The mossy green leaves are twisted through with curly golden-brown hairs (which are actually pistils, structures meant to catch pollen from fertilizing male plants). Parent strain Super Silver Haze also passes on some cloudy white trichomes, giving these flowers a silvery sheen and a very sticky texture.
What these flowers lack in visuals, they more than make up for in scent. As with parent strain Blueberry, this primary aroma that wafts up from this bud is that of fresh blueberries. This fruity profile is accented by some sweet notes of vanilla. Meanwhile, grinding up or breaking open the bud yields hints of spice and damp earth. When combusted, Haze Berry burns with a smooth and palatable smoke. On the exhale, this smoke carries a distinctly herbal flavor, likely passed on from the Haze in the bud’s lineage.
Haze Berry takes hold quickly, initially apparent as a throbbing around the eyes and the temples. As users acclimate to this strange physical sensation, they may notice some changes in perception; while some only have a slight feeling of time slowing down, others pick up on psychedelic effects like visual and auditory distortions. For many, Haze Berry imparts a strong cerebral character, with thoughts jumping rapidly from one to the next in free association. This feeling of mindrace can be great for creative brainstorming or for powering through intense analytical tasks. Conversely, this mental stimulation may lead to the kind of recursive thinking patterns that can result in paranoia. In the right set and setting, though, Haze Berry may feel euphoric and uniquely social, bringing about the desire to spend time around companions and loved ones. As the high wears on, some slight physical relaxation creeps in to ground out this strain’s bold head high. Because of its energetic nature, Haze Berry is recommended for daytime use; it may leave smokers wired if consumed at night.
This sativa’s head-focused properties can have many benefits for medical cannabis patients as well. Its enduring, lucid focus can help those with attention deficit disorders to concentrate on a single task. Its ability to alter mood may also help patients with mild to moderate depression to spend their time more consciously and presently. Physiologically, the bud can relieve deep-seated aches and pains, as well as more minor irritations like headaches and nausea. Because it can easily trigger paranoia, Haze Berry is not recommended for users who are prone to panic and anxiety or who have a low tolerance for THC.
Fortunately, Royal Queen has made seeds of Haze Berry available for sale online. It can be grown indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a humid climate with daytime temperatures between 72 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Plants are easily accommodated indoors, where they rarely exceed 3 feet in height. Like many sativas, Haze Berry has a long flowering time of about 9 to 10 weeks when grown indoors; crops are ready for harvest in late October when grown outdoors. Growers should expect a yield of about 49 to 53 grams (or 1.7 to 1.9 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Although somewhat difficult to come by in retail settings, Haze Berry is a no-brainer for sativa lovers who value flavor as much as potency. This strain’s long-lasting mental effects are just the thing for intense, undisturbed concentration.
