Amnesia Haze is a top marijuana strain that has become popular all over the world. It is strong, has an excellent balance of genetics, and is found in coffee shops all over Amsterdam. It was a first-place winner in the 2004 Cannabis Cup as well as the 2012 Sativa Cup and for a good reason. People love Amnesia Haze.
Of course, it’s important to understand what an autoflowering strain of marijuana means before we go any further. In nature, marijuana is photosensitive. That means that the sun (or lack of sun) signals when it should go from the vegetative phase to the flowering phase. When there are enough hours of uninterrupted darkness at every night for a certain number of nights in a row, the plants will begin to transition into the flowering phase.
Autoflowering strains of marijuana, however, are not photosensitive. They transition to the flowering phase when the time has come, and this time is not based on light at all. This makes it possible for many growers to have two marijuana harvests within one growing season since the first harvest can take place when there is tons of sun (and photosensitive plants won’t have gone into their flowering phase yet). Amnesia Haze Autoflowering strain is an excellent strain of marijuana for experienced growers.
