Amnesia started life as a clone-only strain bred by Zwiep from the company Hy-Pro in Tilburg. This clone-only strain was the result of crossing a cut of Neville’s Haze with an unknown Afghani Indica. Amnesia gained its notoriety as a stand-out strain due to its popularity with the customers of coffee shops across Holland. Its success has led it to win and place in many cannabis competitions over the years. Eventually, a seed form of the clone was released to the public. How this was achieved is up for debate with some talk of a backcross to another Haze, perhaps Nevilles? The resulting progeny will generally produce two phenotypes, one squat bushy Indica and another lankier Sativa leaner that will stretch and yield well.
TASTE & SMELL –
This herb has that unique Haze smell accentuated with hints of cedar, spice and mango/lemon.
The effects of Amnesia are well balanced with the onset of a euphoric uplifting high followed by a narcotic sedative come down.
MEDICAL USES –
Some common ailments that Amnesia can be used to treat include; anxiety, low mood, nausea and loss of appetite.
GROW INFO –
Amnesia is a forgiving plant to grow, hard to stress and able to handle heavy feeds. For a Sativa dominant hybrid, she finishes fast enough, anywhere from 64 to 73 days. Outdoors she will perform well in warm climates but will suffer when late flowering is hampered by low temperatures. Both phenotypes have typical Indica looking buds, fat bulbous, fairy dusted, glimmering and low leaf to calyx ratio.
SEED AVAILABILITY –
For those wishing to obtain this strain, it can be a real minefield selecting the genuine article, with over twenty breeders/seedbanks offering versions of Amnesia containing a mishmash of genetics from Koh Chang to Cindy99 to Skunk#1. To guarantee that you get the same Amnesia genetics that originated all the hype and the provenance of being made with the original clone-only Amnesia (Hy-Pro)(Core Cut), authentic Amnesia seeds can be purchased directly from Hy-Pro seeds. Dinafem also does a feminized version working with the same genetics that they call Original Amnesia. This version was made in collaboration with Zwiep of Hy-Pro.
