The Dutch are extremely friendly and helpful. In my experience they are excited to help and show you how to enjoy their culture. It doesn’t hurt that a lot of people speak English, too. Many tourists who visit are there for the same reason you are, and I’ve always found it easy to strike up a conversation or share a joint with strangers at a coffeeshop.

No surprises here! The Netherlands has a close relationship with Amnesia Haze. After original Haze genetics entered the country decades ago, breeders worked their magic and created Amnesia Haze within Dutch borders. Popular in coffeeshops across Amsterdam, Dutch growers also have a soft spot for this powerful sativa hybrid. She packs a hefty THC value of 22% and provides delicious earthy and citrusy terpenes. Her energetic high shifts motivation up a gear and leaves users looking for something to accomplish. Medium levels of CBD help level out the high and prevent things from becoming overwhelming.

Amnesia Haze provides a significant yield both indoors and outdoors. Indoor specimens grow to between 80–140cm tall and produce 650–700g/m² after a flowering time of 10–11 weeks. Outdoor plants surge to a towering height of 210cm and produce a rewarding yield of up to 700g/plant. Prepare to harvest these tree-like plants in late October.
