Mango Haze is a strain to look into for several reasons. This beloved strain doesn’t sacrifice potency for flavor. Mango Haze is a Sativa dominant (60/40) favorite that tips the scales at 24% THC and tastes like a delicious tropical fruit. Created by Mr. Nice seeds in the Netherlands, this complex and unique strain is a hard-hitting crowd-pleaser that starts with a swift uplifting cerebral high that balances into a full-body buzz.
Mango Haze Lineage
The Mango Haze strain is descended from a long list of hard-hitting Indicas and first-rate Sativas — which is why it’s nominated as one of the most influential cannabis strains to exist. To give you a little more perspective as to why we and other Cannaseurs love the Mango Haze strain, you need to be educated about its heritage.
Northern Lights #5
One of the most well-known strains on the market, this 95% Indica dominant strain is a three-time High Times Cannabis Cup winner that hits at around 22-26% THC. The Northern Lights #5 is best known for producing a relaxing and uplifting high that ends with heavy sedation.
This hybrid strain is milder than the Northern Lights strain at 15-19% THC and breaks down to be a pretty balanced Indica dominant strain at 65%/35%. Skunk #1 is a pest and disease-resistant bud that has been bred as the backbone to countless strains within the Dutch market.
The Skunk #1 marijuana strain leaves users feeling a relief of tension for both the body and mind and is a favorite among medical marijuana patients.
This strain was created in California by the Haze brothers. In its purest form, it’s the best Sativa strain you can buy and is used as a parent strain to many other hybrid strains today. Coming in at 27% THC, this is a powerful strain. You should be warned ahead of time that some users have reported anxiety for about 15 min. But if you can hold out, this earthy strain is said to come down to a very nice high.
Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
As its name would suggest, this strain has a good potent mango and sweet skunk smell — similar to its flavor, which is said to be sweet citrus with undertones of earthy spice.
In terms of looks, the Mango Haze strain has vibrant green leaves with orange and yellow pistils that run along with the flowers, with an amber coating of trichomes. These properties give this strain an almost golden hue.
Mango Haze Growing Information
The Mango Haze strain can be successfully grown indoors or outdoors. Inside growers should keep their plants in a semi-humid and warm climate and be aware that they may need to trim back their plants during early vegetative stages. The trimming of this plant will help to control the height. If done properly, it should flower between 9-11 weeks. The Mango Haze Strain will grow to about six feet tall, and yields about 1.5 to 1.8 ounces per square foot of smokable marijuana.
Effects of the Mango Haze Strain
Mango Haze gives off a high that starts with an uplifting and energetic feeling that is known to spark good conversation or creativity. It then fades into a deep sense of calm and relaxation. It is highly unlikely you’ll become a couch potato thanks to the energizing high of the Sativa that is in this strain. While the Mango Haze strain is great for brain-storming philosophical ideas, we don’t recommend smoking this strain before doing more task-oriented or analytical work.
Mango Haze isn’t likely to cause any THC related anxiety or paranoia, but users should still be aware of their limits and pace themselves. But aside from the common red eyes and dry mouth, there haven’t been any negative side effects reported with this strain.
Thanks to the strong uplifting effects of this strain, it may be useful to help take the edge off of a user’s depression or stress. Users also reported that the Mango Haze strain has been effective for some of their mild everyday irritations like headaches and nausea. This strain also helps as an appetite stimulant for patients on chemotherapy.
Mango Haze CBD Strain
We love the medicinal and recreational benefits that the Mango Haze strain provides. If you’re wanting an even more therapeutic bud, we highly recommend the CBD-rich version. This particular CBD heavy Mango Haze strain was created in 2013 by CBD Crew with a CBD: THC ratio of 1:1 to 2:1.
This is a great option because it incorporates the therapeutic benefits of CBD without a strong mental high — in fact, CBD could counteract the side effects of THC. This CBD strain still keeps its flavor and Sativa-dominant qualities intact, but you won’t get much of a psychedelic high.
