With a multitude of sativa hybrids nowadays, finding a pure sativa strain is like finding a hidden gem. Created by blending Swiss Sativa and NL5 Haze Mist, Arjan’s Strawberry Haze is a delectable mix bred by Green House. An award-winning strain, it rose into fame by winning the hearts (or shall we say tongue and lungs) of the Green House Smoking Panel way back 2005. Arjan Roskam was the first person who grew it successfully, hence the potent strain’s name. It smells of sweet strawberry with hints of earth and can be grown either indoors or outdoors.
Arjan’s Strawberry Haze tastes like a freshly sliced citrus which becomes stronger as you relish on the smoke. The warm buzz will strike you before you know it. It arrives really quick. At first, you will feel a little bit of pressure in the temples and around the eyes which eventually envelops your whole head with euphoria. It will launch you to a state of pure bliss as if you never knew of sadness or worries before. You will be energized and ready to take on any challenges on the way. It will also cause you to become more talkative and engaged.
Arjan’s Strawberry Haze can easily ease any feelings of tension, hopelessness, and sadness among patients with mental illnesses. This can range from anxiety, depression, PTSD and bipolar disorder. In terms of physical pain, it can soothe and relax any knots of muscle tension or spasms, muscle pain, headache, and migraine. It is also helpful for those who have difficulty in focusing and concentrating, such as those with ADD, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease.
While cottonmouth and dry eyes are just common and mild after-effects of Arjan’s Strawberry Haze, it can escalate into anxiety, paranoia, headache and hallucinations if you were not able to control your intake.
According to experts, the Screen of Green (SCROG) method is the best way to grow this strain. You can also do the Sea of Green (SOG) method and it will also grow fairly well. Its branches tend to grow vertically so trimming or pruning is required to prevent molds.
