From the late 1970s onwards, with the onset of the new generation of modern breeders, different Haze strains proliferated. Smokers prize the Haze strains for their euphoric, cerebral hit, as opposed to the more soporific effects that often come from Indica dominant strains. Connoisseurs also enjoy the clear, clean taste of Haze which includes characteristic citrus notes.
Haze strains grow much taller than their Indica cousins, with heights of up to four metres recorded for plants that have been allowed to grow untrammelled in the right sunny conditions outdoors. Grown indoors, the plants can be kept to a manageable size with judicious pruning, and of course Haze strains crossed with Indica have different growing habits, combining the qualities of the two types.
