Growing Runtz outdoors is tricky to master—it’s better small and compact indoors than as a field of trees. Masters coax out notes of candied fruit and creamy berry-grape gas.

Unpacking the name, Forbidden Lemon Glue combines Forbidden Fruit (Cherry Pie x Tangie) and Lemon Glue (Lemon Tree x Glue 75%). That’s four equally intriguing genetic lines outside of a Cookie or an OG.
Don’t get your hopes up for a modern version of Catpiss, though. That legendary, biting strain is thought to be lost to time. This is Cookies’ cross of Lemonnade, Gelato #42, and London Pound Cake #97—a menagerie of on-trend terps.
For the old school throwback fans, Skunk 1 has delivered high-THC, high-terpene, mind-warping effects since London in the late ‘80s. But skunk also seems to self-limit its population. The racey, edgy 80% sativa is stinky as all get-out—enough to get you popped in prohibition states.
Amazing Haze cannabis seeds manage to encompass the full spectrum of weed genetics almost in its entirety. That’s quite an achievement, and it probably account for much of what makes this steamroller strain so unique in its varied effects. The genetic diversity of Amazing Haze is directly due to the mixed, open-minded marriage between two hugely complementary parent plants. Amnesia Haze is an iconic 70% sativa monolith, whereas Caramella brings an impressive 80% indica genome to the table. If you know the classic effects associated with either branch of the Great Weed Family Tree, you know you’re in for a special ride. Well, you guessed right: start your engines, for the Amazing Haze Race is about to start!
An interesting blend of two genetic extremes, Amazing Haze appears to provide medicinal possibilities worth exploring. Its uplifting headbuzz tendencies suggest applications for sadness, low energy and depression-like symptoms, for which the strain is widely appreciated indeed. Some report significant improvement of migraines and lasting headaches for this predominantly brain-directed strain. In fact, Amazing Haze is often quoted as a personal favourite for chronic fatigue and associated conditions, but of course, it works equally well if you’re just having an off-day or a slow start. Add a cup of coffee and something sweet to nibble on, and you’re all set for a productive, positive run!
With two highly diverse indica and sativa strains for parents, the terpene profile determining the scent and flavour of Amazing Haze is a rich blend of aromatic molecules. Caryophyllene and myrcene tend to have the upper hand, although terpene composition does tend to vary from one grow setup to the next. The determining factor in the unmistakable Amazing Haze bouquet comes from the Caramello side, however, as its sultry sweet caramel tones make the taste of its thick smoke quite unforgettable. Taken together, all elements culminate in a lovely sweet palate sensation with lovely touches of earth for balance. The taste of Amazing Haze tingles and lingers on long after you exhale.
Perhaps Amazing Haze is not your best choice if this is your first ever attempt at growing cannabis. Still, the main trick in cultivating this strain to full effect is patience, lots of patience. Flowering times average at around 9 to 10 weeks, so if you’re planning to grow outside, be sure to go in early or you’ll be harvesting after the autumn rain sets in. If you do manage to let her flower all the way, you’re in for a considerable reward. With the right treatment and nutrient mix, her buds turn ginormous, which in itself does pose a bit of an increased fungus risk towards harvest time. She does have a bit of that familiar sativa sensitivity, though, so don’t treat her rough and try not to stress her out too much.
Amazing Haze feminized cannabis seeds pack a veritable cornucopia of different effects. That makes it a very interesting strain; not just for growing, but for consumption, too. Her unsurpassed highs are quite cerebral, full of energizing cheer and uplifting mental stimulation. Some would say that qualifies Amazing Haze as a daytime strain, but for others, she’s a fine pick for a lively finish of the day. No matter what, though, she always brings a serious THC range and powerful entourage boost provided by her flavourful terpene profile.
This pure sativa rose to stardom in the late 1960s thanks to its effects: speedy and intense, bordering on psychedelic.
Strain type: Hybrid
Strain type: Hybrid
Backstory: Berry White is the offspring of parents of near-celebrity status in the cannabis world, and is famous in its own right for effects that offer shelter from stress and a sturdy sense of euphoria.
Why we love it: Few strains sharpen creativity and encourage productivity like this classic sativa.
Strain type: Indica
Backstory: Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple (or GDP) is a famous indica cross: The California staple inherits a complex grape and berry aroma from its Purple Urkle parent, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure. GDP flowers bloom in shades of deep purple, a contrastive backdrop for its snow-like dusting of white crystal resin. Its potent psychoactive effects are clearly detectable in both mind and body, and growers particularly love GDP for its massive yields.
