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 marijuana 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 Cannaseur’s love Mango Haze, 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. 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 powerful yet unique strain was created in California by the Haze brothers. In its purest form, it’s considered to be the best Sativa strain you can buy and is used as a parent strain to many other hybrid strains today. Topping the charts at 27% THC, this is insanely powerful, and you should be forewarned that some smokers have reported anxiety for about 15 min. But if you can hold out, this Earthy tasting strain is said to round down to a very blissful high.
Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
As its name would suggest, this strain has a pleasantly potent mango and sweet skunk aroma — similar to its flavor, which is said to be sweet citrus with undertones of earthy spice.
In terms of looks, Mango Haze possesses vibrant green leaves with orange and yellow pistils that run along with the flowers, with a translucent amber coating of trichomes; giving it an almost golden hue.
Mango Haze Growing Information
The Mango Haze marijuana strain is very versatile and can be successfully grown indoors or outdoors. Inside growers should keep their plants in a semi-humid and warm climate (think the Mediterranean) and be aware that they may need to trim back their plants during the early vegetative stages to control the height. If done properly, it should flower between 9-11 weeks, grow to about six feet tall, and yields about 1.5 to 1.8 ounces per square foot of smokable product.
Mango Haze produces 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 — however — it’s high-ly unlikely you’ll become a couch potato thanks to the energizing cerebral high of the Sativa contained in this strain. While Mango Haze is great for brain-storming philosophical ideas, we don’t recommend toking up on this before doing more task-oriented or analytical work.
Mango Haze isn’t likely to induce any THC related anxiety or paranoia, but users should still be aware of their limits and pace themselves accordingly. But aside from the cliche red eyes and dry mouth — there haven’t been any negative side effects reported with this strain.
And two little tips for the dry mouth and red eyes: water and eye drops.
Thanks to the strong energizing and uplifting effects of the Mango Haze marijuana strain, it may be useful to help take the edge off of depression or stress. Users also reported that it has been effective for some of their mild everyday irritations like headaches and nausea; or as an appetite stimulant for patients on chemo.
Mango Haze CBD Strain
We love the medicinal and recreational benefits that the Mango Haze marijuana strain provides, however, if you’re wanting an even more therapeutic bud, we highly recommend the CBD-rich version. This particular CBD laden 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. The CBD Mango Haze strain still keeps its flavor and Sativa-dominant qualities intact, but you won’t get much of a psychedelic high.
A few physical and mental medical conditions the Mango Haze CBD strain has been helpful for are:

Mango Haze Marijuana Strain Reviews
“Absolutely wonderful strain. Uplifting, energising, euphoric, happy, blissful, mind opening, great sativa dominant strain. Nice tingly indica undertone, barely noticeable which I prefer if any indica is present. Watch out when you sit down though, she can take you away to dreamland if you let your mind escape, depending on what you want of course! As a recreational smoker, this strain is truly fun and beautiful with no noticeable negatives. Made its way into my top 10! Oh and the taste is exquisite mango and sweet is definitely prominent, I’ll have to smoke a bit more to explore the tastes fully I focus on the high first. Happy smoking!”
“Uplifting, good for pain and stress management. Leaves a state of mental clarity. Great medicine!”

“I suffer from bad migraines occasionally. Had one today and decided to smoke a bowl of this to see if it helped and it certainly did. Higher CBD doses will usually do the trick for any pain related ailment and this was a knockout for sure. Just enough sativa to pick up my spirits too. Great stuff”
