The Amnesia strain does not have a 100% clear origin, but we can say with enough certainty that it descends from a cross between a Skunk #1, a Cinderella 99 and a Jack Herer. The result is a sativa dominance plant, with long flowering periods, but even that, many growers do not have any problem to wait for her. Mainly because, as her own name tells us, is so strong that it can produce amnesia in who consumes it and this is good for some!
Apart from that, Amnesia is beloved for thounsands because of its flavor, very special and intense and its very high yield of psychoactive sartiva buds.
It is believed that the first Amnesia that was sold as a seed from the Dutch seed bank "Super Strains" in 1996 and can reach 25% THC, with 90% sativa predominance and a flowering period that takes around 10 to 16 weeks. This seeds are not available in the market now.
One of the best available Amnesia strains is the Amnesia Haze, breeded by the well-known guru Soma, from the Soma Seeds bank. This American grower, rastafari, patient and marijuana activist has improved this genetics several times and says it is one of his favorites. He has not given data about the process, but it is believed that he has put a G13 in the equation to create this 70% sativa. It stands out especially for its strong flavor and for its level of THC that reaches 20%.
Not all amnesia strains have a very long flowering, some have been crossed to shorten this process. In general it can be said that predominantly they are strong plants, with a lot of ramification and enough height to allow the ScroG and SoG techniques. Support for its branches in general is recommended, since the buds tend to be heavy and resinous.
Most amnesia strains are very grateful to high fertilization and tend to withstand fungi better than other cannabis strains. Generalizing we can say that they accuse much the temperature changes but do not take it for granted and make your own research.
Usually an original Amnesia weed gives energy and creativity, even euphoria, but there are also relaxing effects, almost narcotics at the end. This is a strain not recommended for newbies, it can hit so hard that is only recommended to expert tasters.
Depending on the amnesia strain you choose, the flavor will vary due to the different crosses, but generally, its flavor will be citrus as well as earthy and a little spicy due to its Haze ancestry, but different.
