LIBERTY HAZE EXCELLENT AWARD-WINNING HAZE HYBRID
Liberty Haze isn’t just your typical Indica/Sativa hybrid. The slightly Sativa dominant (60%) strain won already several awards. And as you’d expect from an award-winning Lady like her, she didn’t get those awards for nothing. Liberty Haze shines with several excellent qualities that make her truly stand out among the many cannabis strains available today.
Created by crossing a G13 with a ChemDawg 91, Liberty Haze turned out a very-fast flowering strain that displays both, Indica and Sativa characteristics. She will grow to a medium height of about 100cm but takes on some good girth instead. Her compact, bushy growth and that she doesn’t grow too tall can make her a good choice if your growing space is somewhat limited.
When she grows, she will develop a number of long but tightly packed colas that will in no time be brimming with very dense buds. Know that she is a beauty to behold because she will show off some wonderful red and purple colours in the later stages of her flowering period which, by the way, is 8-9 weeks.
Of course, looks are not everything when it comes to growing some good weed so let’s check out these things that really count, besides appearance alone. At harvest time, Liberty Haze sure won’t disappoint! She can yield as much as 600 gr/m² if you grow her indoors in good conditions.
When you smoke Liberty Haze you can enjoy an awesome, slightly tart lime taste that she nicely blends with some fragrant floral notes. Just like her taste that invokes dreaming of flowers and Mediterranean citrus trees, her effect is equally positive and uplifting! Seeing that she has a slight Sativa dominance in her genetics, she will make for a powerful, fast-hitting cerebral upper effect that will last for quite some time.
Liberty Haze won the 1st prize in the Overall category at the High times Cannabis Cup in 2011 and made 2nd in the Best Sativa category in 2015 at the Amsterdam Unity Cup.
With all these fantastic qualities, like her excellent taste and the great Sativa high you would have quite some troubles if you needed to find any flaw with Liberty Haze. She’s simply a superb Sativa to grow that will no doubt delight the Sativa lovers out there!

About Liberty Haze
Liberty Haze is a hybrid that has predominantly cerebral sativa effects. A cross between Mississippi-born G13 and sativa favorite Chemdawg, it is the brainchild of Barney’s Farm, a breeding operation that has also created flavor-focused strains like Tangerine Dream and Blue Cheese. With a dynamic, well-rounded taste and an energetic, it’s a great option for a any number of situations. Liberty’s Haze’s psychoactivity has even earned it the honor of best strain overall in the 2011 High Times Cannabis Cup. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found flowers of Liberty Haze to have between 17% and a stunning 29% THC.
Liberty’s Haze’s flowers betray its sativa character with long, tapered buds that are somewhat reminiscent of traditional Thai stick. These buds have a loose and fluffy texture and the leaves are easily torn away from their central stems. Leaves themselves are a vibrant spring green and are set off by many orange to red hairs (which are actually pistils, meant to catch pollen from flowering male plants). Transparent trichomes ensure that the flowers are sticky and very potent, but leaves them without the silver sheen characteristic of other resinous strains. When buds of Liberty Haze are properly cured, they give off the relatively rare aroma of lime. On closer inspection, this citrus tang is grounded out by more dank, kushy base notes. This strain burns with a smooth smoke and tastes like lime on the exhale; smokers may also pick up on some subtle spicy and herbal flavors.
The effects of Liberty Haze take hold of users quickly in the form of a bracing head high. A steady pressure can be discerned around the eyes and temples. There is also a marked change in perception that may prove disorienting at first; smokers may suddenly find them some more observant or even hyper-aware of their surroundings. Once they’ve become accustomed to this altered state, though, users can point this energetic thoughtfulness in any direction they choose. Liberty Haze can provide the motivation you need to get out and accomplish some errands. Alternatively, it can help accomplish work, whether creative and artistic or more analytical and task-based. It may also be a great way to bond and relax with friends, whether you’re staying in or taking a hike on a beautiful day. A classic “wake and bake” strain, Liberty Haze is not recommended for use before bedtime. Its strong cerebral can be long-lasting, even for cannabis veterans.
Just as Liberty Haze has recreational uses that affect the mind, its medical applications are also mostly psychological (although its anti-inflammatory properties may confer some benefits for minor aches and pains or for an irritated stomach). Its sustained feeling of focus and acuity can be helpful for those with attention deficit disorders. For patients with mild to moderate stress and depression, it can open up channels of perception and mood, allowing the afflicted to feel more present and “in the moment.” Negative side effects include dry mouth. Because of its tendency to bring about recursive thinking and paranoia, Liberty Haze may also be not best choice for those who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
Breeders Barney’s Farm have made seeds of Liberty Haze available for commercial sale. Like many sativas, this strain has hearty genetics that allow it to be successfully grown indoors or out — although outdoor cultivation requires warm, Mediterranean-like climates. Its plants are somewhat tall (and can stretch during their flowering period), but their height can be managed if growers prune and trim branches early on in the vegetative stage. Parent strain Chemdawg was specifically selected for its quick maturation and Liberty Haze follows in kind, flowering within a fast 8 to 9 weeks when grown indoors and ready for harvest in late September to early October when grown outdoors. This strain also offers growers an exceptionally high yield for their efforts: growers can expect about 60 grams (or 2 ounces) of flower per square foot of plant.
Liberty Haze’s enduring head buzz is a great way to keep a party rolling or to just enjoy some quality solo time. If you do share, though, bring enough for everyone, as its signature lime taste deserves to be spread and savored.

The Haze Strain Is Beloved For It’s Clear, Heady Effects
If you have frequented a medical marijuana dispensary or are even slightly familiar with cannabis, then chances are that you have heard of the Haze strain at some point in time. It is highly sought after for its uplifting, sometimes racy effects and has been used as a staple in a number of hybrids.
“It often takes as as long as 14 weeks of flowering before a batch of haze can be harvested.”
It should be noted that there are a variety of Haze strains, typically referred to by the region from with it originally stems from. Nonetheless, the most famous of these is often referred to as “original haze.”
It famously combined Sativagenetics from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand, and India to highlight the best characteristics of each individual strain. It was developed by a group called “The Haze Brothers” during the 1970’s.”
Despite the uplifting effects for which the Haze strain is known, it can be hard to come by in the US dispensary scene. This is largely due to the the amount of time required for a Haze plant to be ready for harvest. It often takes as as long as 14 weeks of flowering before a batch of haze can be processed. The resulting flowers can be well-worth the wait, however, which is why Haze varieties are still popular in the European cannabis market.
How Will The Haze Strain Affect Me?
I came across this batch of Haze on my most recent trip to VFL Collective in Burbank, CA. I knew I was in for a pleasant experience when I sniffed the jar and was welcomed with a subtle, smooth aroma. Its scent was nearly identical to the best batches of the Jack Hererstrain – no complaints there.
