The history of the Haze strains dates back to the early 70’s. Like most stories of legendary strains which began at a time when legalization was out of the question, it is a bit confusing and contradictory. For obvious reasons, the Grovers of that time were not too keen on popularity. Nevertheless, it is possible to trace the main milestones that led to the creation of one of the most famous and popular varieties and the emergence of online medical marijuanas card pa.
History of Haze
So, the Corralitos in the Santa Cruz area of central California, a few miles off the coast of Monterey Bay. The Haze Bros. experimented with the Mexican and Colombian Sativa landraces popular in these parts, selecting the most productive and “twiggy” plants. The next year, the best of them were pollinated with male plants from South India (presumably from Kerala, an area with a humid tropical climate), and after another year, the Thai Sativa genes were added to the most successful specimens in the same way. This 100% Sativa blend is the starting point for the development of the Haze line.
It has to be said that the Haze Bros., although they were very advanced for that time growers, were not geneticists, and did not spend too much time stabilizing the variety and creating a pure genetic line. The cannabis they grew varied in phenotypes, with Purple Haze, Silver Blue Haze and Lime Green Haze being the most popular with customers. The citrus notes passed on to this marijuana from Thai varieties and the purple or blue color hue from Colombian parents.
The experiments of the Hayes brothers attracted the attention of Sam Skunkman (later the creator of the famous Skunk family) who lived next door. It is unknown the extent of his involvement in the creation of Hayes, but his advice was definitely taken into account by the brothers. In the early 80s, when he moved to Holland, he brought with him some Californian seeds and independently separated the main genetic line Original Haze, which became the basis of a branch of the European family of Haze.
At the same time, Nevil Shoenmakers, a Dutch breeder of Australian origin, became interested in Haze (yes, immediately after legalization, growers and breeders from all over the world rushed to the Netherlands). On his own and involving another legendary personality, Shantibaba, he created his own version of Haze and actively began hybridization, creating, among other things, autoflowering variations.
One way or another, the Satellite, with a pronounced Hai effect, variety has gained a mass of fans in all parts of the world. Modern hybrids have brought unthinkable variety to the classic line, but nevertheless retained its main attractive qualities – a pleasant spicy citrus flavor, and a vivacious energetic effect.
