Let’s not ignore the fact that Amnesia Haze is also a haze strain, in which has its own line of properties. We have previously covered Lemon Haze, Silver Haze and a few others. Strains like these are award-winning and never fail to deliver a strong high. If you see a haze strain at your local dispensary, chances are its a good one.


Sure, the name “Amnesia Haze” could refer to how the strain makes users feel a bit forgetful, though not severely. Instead, this strain is known better for its strong uplifting effects. It’s a sativa strain, after all, and can get a user up and active.

Levels of THC in this strain are known to range between 18-25%, depending on the grower. As for terpenes, myrcene is very dominant here, which actually contributes to a small hint of indica effects in Amnesia Haze. Its roots can be traced back to a Jamaican landrace strain.

As mentioned above, many haze strains are award-winning. And Amnesia Haze is not shy of its Cannabis Cups. It has won two of them: one in 2004 and the second in 2012. Today, this strain is very popular in Amsterdam and much of the United States.


Being a sativa strain, you can expect the mind-enhancing, energetic effects that often come with it. The high from Amnesia Haze can be very energizing, which makes it not the best strain to take before going to bed. However, it can be a good strain for getting things done or being creative. In addition, many users claim this strain to be a good one for physical activities, such as exercising and sex.

Effects from this strain:

  • Uplifting

On the flip side, there is one thing to note about these sativa effects. Due to its energetic and focusing effects on the mind, those who suffer from high anxiety could easily become paranoid if too much of this strain is consumed. If you experience high anxiety, try an indica strain instead.
