How to Grow Haze Strains

Haze is one of the most talked-about sativa strains out there. It’s origins in weed-friendly California helped catapult it into the cannabis limelight. Those that have experienced it know it for its energetic and creative properties.

Maybe you want to grow it at home. Or perhaps you’re just curious about the strain you’ve grown to love so much. We cover all of your questions about Haze strains and more.

A Brief History of Haze Cultivars

The name Haze is apparently a reference to the surname held by its original cultivars, the Haze Brothers, in Santa Cruz, California. R and J Haze crossed a Colombian, Mexican, and Thai landrace. The results of this mixed genealogy was Haze.

Eventually, Haze genetics were passed on to David Watson. Watson took the seeds with him from the US to Amsterdam where he met Neville Schoenmakers, who started Sensi Seeds (the Seed Bank).

Between the 1980s to 1990s, Haze turned from one strain into hundreds. This is why Haze now refers to many cultivars instead of the original created by the Haze Brothers.

What is Haze Cannabis and Why Is It Popular?

Haze was one of the first, if not the first, sativa to be known for the qualities you associate with a strong sativa. All Haze strains give strong cerebral highs that are stimulating and make you feel energized.

The flavors and aromas of the strains vary. However, the original Haze cannabis flower was known to be citrusy, spicy, and earthy. Many of these terpenes and characteristics are thus found in other varieties, too.

Tips for Growing Haze

Haze can be tricky to grow as many places can’t emulate this sativa’s ideal growing climate. And even if you have ideal temperatures, the plant can be finicky. Experienced growers consider cultivating this plant to be of moderate difficulty.

The most productive temperatures are warm conditions. For many growers, this means growing Haze outdoors isn’t an option most of the year.

This sativa can grow to be quite sizable, so it is recommended to use larger and deeper planting pots. Prune and shape it regularly to maintain the size and keep it from growing unruly.

Haze strains are powerful and usually have a high yield. However, they are susceptible to pests and infections, so stay on top of checking your plants. You can plant herbs or use non-chemical-based pesticides to eradicate these problems. But perhaps the best advice is to tend to it regularly.

How Long Does It Take?

Haze does have a long flowering time. Depending on the strain, it can take nine to 11 weeks to flower. This isn’t out of the ordinary for sativas, but it means that time must be devoted to care for the plant. Do not neglect it or forget any key steps to care for it over the growing period.

Once it is time to harvest the buds, you can expect between 350 and 400 grams of fresh cannabis per square meter planted. All the time spent caring for it really does pay off!

Different Haze Strains

Perhaps the most famous Haze strains are the ones you hear the most about. Remember when Jimi Hendrix titled his famous hit Purple Haze?

Lemon Haze and Amnesia Haze are two modern strains that are extremely common to find at dispensaries. If you are not the green thumb you thought you were, you can always get your weed online. You can even find vapes and concentrates that focus on Haze strains.

Benefits of Magic Mushroom?

Magic mushrooms amazing inebriating impacts that shift perspectives, boost productivity and improve mood. People have long used them for spiritual guidance, recreational fun, and now for scientifically proven medical benefits.


Magic Mushrooms Offer Positive Shifts in Personality


An open mind allows us to learn, grow and connect as sentient beings. Research has shown that magic mushrooms play a role in helping a person become more open to others, allowing them to connect better through personal growth. In one study, the researchers noted a significant increase in openness after a few high-dose psilocybin sessions. Openness helps in increasing imagination and creativity and creates deeper connections with others. These effects from magic mushrooms may last for a few days to a few months following the actual psychedelic experience.


Magic Mushrooms Aid in Smoking Cessation


Many people with substance addiction find it a challenge to stop these habits. Modern medicine hasn't found any perfect solution for treating addictions, but maybe this ancient fungal medicine can help. Mushrooms can be beneficial in treating addictions, particularly from drugs like nicotine and cocaine. One study that looked into the effectiveness of psilocybin psychotherapy in overcoming an addiction to drugs has shown that magic mushrooms indeed have some positive effects. 


Magic Mushrooms Can Fight Depression

Psilocybin is an active ingredient found in magic mushrooms. Modern neuroscience has shown how it interacts with the serotonin receptors in the brain, producing a series of consciousness-altering effects. This suggests that mushrooms can be useful in treating mental health problems like depression. A growing number of people suffer from mental health conditions in our chaotic world, which can sometimes lead to self-harm. New studies are looking at how shrooms, in therapeutic settings, can help people overcome anxiety, depression, and other difficult mood disorders.


Magic Mushrooms Can Help Dissolve the Ego

Magic mushrooms can help you overcome your ego. The ego is consciousness; it is your defensiveness, your perception, and your cognition. While it is your sense of reality, often, this reality is blocked by negative thoughts and perceptions. Breaking free from the restraints of ego is a long tradition among mystics, poets, philosophers, and medi-tators. Therapeutic doses of mushrooms can dissolve the ego to open up a path towards creativity, connection, and enlightenment.

Types of Edibles at the Dispensary

Even when Canada legalized marijuana in 2018, we still had a wait a bit longer to see cannabis extracts and edibles to follow suit. Today, edibles have become an incredibly popular method of consumption. You will find different kinds of edibles at online and brick-and-mortar dispensaries, ranging from flavoured candies to baked goods. You can take your pick from a wide array of delicious snacks and food items all made with cannabis — to experience pleasant and euphoric effects.

Check out the most popular types of edibles available in dispensaries in Canada today:




Gummies are perhaps the most popular type of edibles in many dispensaries. You can buy gummies with only THC, only CBD, or a combination of both. Gummies are colorful, tasty and fun. They come precisely dosed, making sure your experience is both a predictable and delicious one.



A warm and gooey chocolate chip mixed with a bit of cannabis makes for a winning combination. Cookies are accessible to a broad group of people. Just about any cookie can be made into a THC-rich one. Therefore you can find so many of your favorite for sale at Canadian dispensaries. Think peanut butter THC cookies, double chocolate chip cookies, and much, much, more.



A classic cannabis edible, many people turn to brownies because it is what they are familiar with. After all, mainstream television and Hollywood movies talk about weed brownies all the time! When done right, this type of edible is exceptionally delicious and potent.




Chocolates allow for easier micro-dosing for consumers who are not fans of the potency of brownies. Generally, chocolates contain lower THC doses, making them a good starting point for newbies. Check the label first, though, because sometimes they may have more than 100 mg of THC per package. Another benefit to chocolates? They are discreet! You just have to make sure to keep them out of children's reach.



One of the sweeter edibles available in dispensaries, candies are made with butter, corn syrup, food colouring and cannabis. The result is hard candies that are easy to carry and deliver consistent results. You can consume them like any other kind of candy while getting your desired cannabis effects.



It is easy to love truffles, so it is not a surprise that we can buy them infused with cannabis now. Truffles infused with cannabis can be dibbed or covered with nuts, sugar, sprinkles or chocolate. These edibles make for a great holiday treat, so they are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or other special celebrations.



For those who are into the idea of discreetly carrying and consuming an edible whenever and wherever they feel like it, chews are their best bet. Chews like caramels and taffies replicate the feel of candies that generations have been buying from local corner stores. But this time, they come with a perfect dose of medicine.



Aside from giving you the cannabis effect that you desire, mints can also freshen your breath. They are not as popular as the other types of edibles, but the underrated mints can be easily kept in your purse or pocket. Mints do not melt like chocolates and offer even more discretion.

Baked goods:


A wide range of baked goodies may be infused with cannabis, including cupcakes, granola bars, wafers, and many more. They are not as popular as the other cannabis edible options, but you might want to consider them if you are throwing a themed celebration or just want to mix things up.


Keep in mind that the psychoactive effects of cannabis edibles can be stronger than you think, so you should start slow and go slow. You might find it hard to control the amount of THC you consume, especially when the amount can vary from one edible product to another. Make sure that you first carefully read the label to determine if you should eat an entire handful, a piece or two, just one bite, or the whole thing.

Do Cannabis Topicals Get You High?

More and more people are turning to medical marijuana in Canada to treat everything from arthritis to epilepsy. While some choose traditional methods of consuming cannabis - like smoking or edibles - others are turning to the growing array of cannabis topicals on the market.


So what exactly are cannabis topical? How do they work and - crucially - do they get you high?

What Are Cannabis Topicals?

A cannabis topical is a cream, oil, lotion, or salve that can be applied directly onto the skin.


They’re made by infusing cannabis, or cannabis oil, into waxes and oils.


Instead of ingesting cannabis - like with edibles - or smoking it, the active compounds in the topical are absorbed through the skin. Simply rub the topical onto the area where you need to reduce pain or inflammation, and it will get to work.

Cannabis topicals are a relatively new form of medical marijuana in Canada - although, throughout history, people have used cannabis-based products to treat pain. They’re exciting for medical marijuana users because of the unique way the cannabinoids enter your body.


How Do Cannabis Topicals Work?

However you consume it, cannabis works by interacting with receptors in your endocannabinoid system. We have two types of receptors - CB2 and CB1, which are found throughout the body and in the brain.


The active cannabinoids in marijuana - THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids - bind with these receptors and affect both our body and brain. THC is known for providing the euphoric high that most cannabis users know. CBD, meanwhile, relaxes the body and reduces pain and inflammation.

Cannabis topicals work in the same way. The cannabinoids (mostly CBD) interact with receptors close to where the topical is applied, reducing pain and inflammation. The big difference with topicals is that they only work in a localized area. When you smoke or ingest cannabis, the active compounds into your bloodstream, affecting your entire body and brain. With topicals, the effect is limited to wherever you’ve applied it.

Do Cannabis Topicals Get You High?

The good news for medical marijuana users in Canada is that cannabis topicals can’t get you high. Because the cannabis is absorbed through your skin, it never enters your bloodstream. That means any THC or other cannabinoids can’t reach your brain - and that means you won’t feel high at all.


It’s no wonder cannabis topicals are becoming so popular with medical marijuana users. With their unique delivery method, they allow cannabis to be used to relieve pain and inflammation without any risk of getting high. On the other hand, if you’re a recreational user looking for a buzz, topicals probably aren’t the product for you.

Who Can Benefit From Cannabis Topicals?

Cannabis topicals are most useful for treating pain and inflammation. Some common ailments they’re used to treat include:

● Arthritis
● Joint pain
● Eczema
● Chronic pain (e.g. back pain)
● Menstrual cramps
● Dermatitis


But because topical have a local, anti-inflammatory effect, they can be used for any kind of pain or muscle soreness. Even if you’re only experiencing a minor issue like muscle soreness, it can be eased by applying a topical lotion or balm.


What Are The Benefits of Cannabis Topicals?


Medical marijuana users in Canada are choosing cannabis topicals for a few main reasons:

1. Topicals don’t get you high

As we said, topicals don’t affect your brain so can’t get you high. This means you can use them regularly, throughout the day, and they won’t get in the way of your normal activities.

2. You don’t have to smoke, anything.

While traditionally most cannabis users smoke dried cannabis flower, there’s a growing number of people who want the benefits of medical cannabis use without the risks associated with smoking. For them, topicals can be the answer.


3. Topicals have a localized effect

There are lots of other ways to consume medical marijuana - think CBD oil, edibles, and vapes. But cannabis topicals are the only method that delivers the active compounds straight to the source of the pain. That means their effect is focused on where you need relief, without affecting your whole body.

How To Make The Most of Cannabis Topicals

Before you buy your first batch of cannabis topicals, here are a few ways to get the most out of your experience.

● Choose your strain carefully

Just like other forms of cannabis, topicals can have different amounts of CBD, THC, other cannabinoids, and terpenes. All of these will influence the effect they have. If you’re looking for pain relief, make sure to choose a topical with high CBD content You can even choose topicals with similar cannabinoid profiles to your favourite strains of weed.

● Check the other ingredients in your topical

All cannabis topicals contain a range of ingredients as well as cannabis. Often these ingredients can work together with CBD to offer even more benefits. For example, aloe vera can also help reduce inflammation, and menthol can have a cooling effect. Most topicals are made with natural oils and waxes (like beeswax): it’s worth avoiding products made with synthetic ingredients like parabens.

● Buy from a source you trust

Not all cannabis topicals are worth what you pay for them. Make sure you trust the place you’re buying from, so you aren’t short-changed with an ineffective balm that actually contains little or no CBD!

No High, But a Host of Other Benefits

Since medical marijuana in Canada became legal, cannabis topicals have become more and more popular. They’re easy to buy, easy to use, and come with very few risks. For that reason, we think they’re here to stay.

While they aren’t great at getting you high, they offer lots of other benefits. Their pain-relief and anti-inflammatory properties show a lot of promise. And most topicals are made with all-natural ingredients that can also promote health in other ways..


Whether you’re struggling with serious chronic pain or looking to help an injury heal quicker, a high-CBD content cannabis topical could be for you. There are almost as many different topicals as there are strains of weed, so you’re sure to find a product that works for you!

Dabs vs Cannabis Flower. Which Is Healthier?

There has been lots of excitement in recent years about dabbing - one of the fastest-growing ways of consuming weed. A major reason people are excited is because dabs are seen as healthier than cannabis flower. Lots of people who don’t like to smoke are buying cannabis concentrates online and turning to dabbing for a cleaner alternative.


But once you start investigating the health risks of dabbing vs. smoking, there’s more to it than meets the eye. There are lots of different things to consider when we talk about the health risks of cannabis use.


So we dug deep into the benefits and risks of dabs vs. cannabis flower, so you can choose the method that works for you. And of course, you have to weigh the risks with the benefits you get from cannabis, whether that’s for treating pain, anxiety, or anything else.


Cannabis Flower Vs. Cannabis Concentrates

Most people are familiar with cannabis flower - also known as bud. Dried cannabis flowers are still the popular form of cannabis used around the world. Female cannabis flowers produce the resin that contains THC and other cannabinoids. But the dried bud you buy online all contains the rest of the plant matter from the flower.


Cannabis concentrates, on the other hand, are a purified form of that resin. As the name suggests, concentrates have a much higher concentration of cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and other cannabinoids. Concentrates are made by extracting resin from the cannabis plant. This can be done in many different ways, including using solvents like butane or CO2, water, or heat.


Dabbing: How Does it Work?

Dabbing is a fairly new way of consuming cannabis. It involves vaporizing a cannabis concentrate very quickly and inhaling the vapour. This is typically done using a dab rig. Users heat a nail to a very high temperature, then dab a concentrate like wax, shatter, or rosin onto the nail. It vaporizes fast, and users inhale the vapour through a water pipe, similar to a bong.


Dabbing: The Upsides


1. You’re not inhaling smoke

The key reason why dabbing is seen as healthier than smoking is because it doesn’t involve inhaling smoke (at as much smoke). When you smoke bud, burning the whole flower produces lots of different chemical compounds, some of which are known to be carcinogens.


It’s mostly vapour produced by dabbing. So it contains no extra plant matter, so in theory, it’s much cleaner than smoke and is nearly all THC or other cannabinoids. And the good news is, research seems to support this conclusion so far.


Dabbing: The Downsides

1. Dabs can produce harmful organic compounds

There hasn’t yet been much research on the safety of dabbing. But one recent study did find that at high temperatures, dabbing produced some dangerous chemicals, including benzene, a well-known carcinogen and pollutant. One way to reduce this risk is to dab at a lower temperature. The researchers found that at lower temperatures, fewer harmful chemicals were produced.


2. Unlicensed dabs can contain dangerous solvents

As we mentioned, dabs are made by extracting resin from cannabis flower. Often this is done using solvents like butane or CO2. It’s important that traces of these solvents are removed before being consumed, as they can be dangerous to our health. In regulated laboratories, these processes are now well established and licenced. However, some illegal and unlicenced producers still don’t purify their concentrates to acceptable levels. The moral of the story? Always choose a reputable, legal place to buy cannabis concentrates online.


Cannabis Flower

As you probably know, smoking cannabis flower involves burning bud in a joint, pipe, or bong. To get high, you simply inhale the smoke. Smoking is still the most popular way of consuming cannabis around the world.


Cannabis Flower: the Upsides

1. It’s easier to manage your dose

One of the major benefits of smoking over dabbing is that it’s much easier to manage your dose. Most flower contains 10 -25% THC, whereas concentrates can contain 50-80%. Especially for new users, smoking can be a safer way to try cannabis, without risking uncomfortable side effects that are more common with dabbing. While it’s impossible to overdose on weed, overdoing it can be a pretty unpleasant experience!


2. It could lead to less dependence and withdrawal

Cannabis isn’t an addictive substance, but some heavy users do experience dependence and mild withdrawal symptoms when they stop using. One recent study found that dabbing led to higher levels of physical dependence than smoking. This could be because dabbing typically involves much higher doses than smoking. More research is needed, but it's worth considering.

Cannabis Flower: the Downsides

1. Cannabis smoke contains more carcinogenic compounds

Evidence suggests that smoking cannabis is much safer than smoking tobacco, and research hasn’t found a link between smoking weed and lung cancer. But there’s no denying that cannabis smoke contains a whole range of chemicals that can be carcinogenic. Smoking can also damage our lungs, especially if we use it regularly.


2. Cannabis flower can be contaminated

Because cannabis flower is unpurified plant material, it can get contaminated. Moulds, bacteria, and mites can infest plants, especially if they’re stored in humid conditions. Insecticides, pesticides, and heavy metals can also contaminate cannabis flower, depending on where it’s grown - and these are all bad news for human health.

How Much Do We Know About the Health Risks?

We think it’s important to point out that right now, no one is 100% sure about the risks of smoking or dabbing. While people have been smoking weed for thousands of years, scientific research is lagging far behind, and we still don’t have conclusive evidence on what all of the risks are.


That’s doubly true for dabbing, which is an even more recent phenomenon. Research is slowly emerging, but there’s a long way to go. Like everything we do in our lives, there are some risks associated with cannabis use. The best thing you can do is educate yourself and make an informed choice about what’s best for you.


Smoking Vs. Dabbing - Which One to Choose?

Dabbing has grown in popularity because it’s seen as healthier than smoking, and there seems to be some truth in that. For those who don’t want to inhale smoke, dabbing seems like a good choice.


But honestly, we probably don’t yet know enough about either to be sure. Both smoking and dabbing have some potential negative health effects. One of the best ways to minimize those risks is to buy you weed from a reputable source. Whether you buy cannabis flower or concentrates online, make sure you understand what you’re buying. That way, you can be sure to limit the chance of dangerous impurities in your weed.


And if you’re put off by some of the risks we’ve discussed here, don’t worry. There are plenty of safer ways to consume cannabis too. Oral consumption - like edibles or tinctures - doesn’t involve burning or vaporizing cannabis, so doesn’t have many of the risks we’ve mentioned here.


In short, there are benefits and downsides to both cannabis flower and concentrates. But the good news is, there are so many different ways to consume now that you’re sure to find one that works for you.
