Amnesia was and remains one of the most popular marijuana strains even today. With its unique and outstanding features and the whopping potency, this weed is bound to provide spectacular effects to all who consume it.

The effects of this weed are perfectly balanced but the biggest reason behind its quality is genetics. Right now, the Amnesia weed strain is one of the most potent strains out there with a THC level that can go up to 25%. If you stop to compare it to other Sativa dominant strains, you see that this cannabis is in its own league, beating most of its competitors by a lot.

If you’ve been wondering where the potency of the Amnesia buds come from, you should know that the parents of this strain are the award-winning Jack Herer, Cinderella 99, and Skunk #1.

So, you might find versions such as Amnesia Haze on the market, but the effects can vary a lot seeing how some of those strains can also be indica-dominant.

It is because of its high potency that Amnesia cannabis lasts for quite some time. Experienced tokers will feel high for around 3 hours while for new users, the experience can last double or more.

Are there any side effects?

Like other strains, consuming the Amnesia can also bring up some side effects. Due to its high potency, these side effects can be more uncomfortable if you take bigger doses, especially if you aren’t an experienced smoker or one that has tried strains that have high THC levels.

The side effects that could happen include:

Dry mouth 37% of users
Dry eyes 19% of users
Paranoia 11% of users

What Are The Features Of The Amnesia Marijuana?

The Amnesia weed and its plant have features that are easily recognizable and make this plant more unique than it already is. Combine the marvelous scent and taste, and you will understand why Amnesia marijuana is so popular among users. Let’s see what those features are.

How does Amnesia look, smell or taste?

As far as appearance goes, Amnesia looks a lot like the NYC Diesel strain. IT has dry buds that have a bit of stickiness to them, despite the fact that this strain is obviously heavily crystallized. The buds of the Amnesia weed strain don’t flake off or compress much, which makes it easy for growers to handle the plant.

Unlike most marijuana strains, the Amnesia marijuana strain doesn’t have its trichomes raised vertically with the heads at their tops. The trichomes on the plant are arranged in a swept pattern and lay flat against the buds. It almost seems like something is pressing on them, but that’s not the case.

When the buds of a plant are pressed, the trichome heads end up being warped and damaged. In the case of the Amnesia cannabis strain, the heads remain in perfect condition, which means that this is their natural formation.

Taste and smell-wise, Amnesia has a dusky fragrance that you won’t find with any other plants. The bouquet of the Amnesia cannabis smells like freshly cut grass and hay. You can also sense mix notes of ammonia and rotten wood. When you taste the strain, you’ll feel a grassy taste on your tongue and a fresh feeling in your sinuses. You might get the temptation to cough more often, but that’s pretty much the result of its strength.

On the exhale, you will sense hints of citrus and be left with a sticky and sweet taste in your mouth.

Should You Consume Amnesia Cannabis?

If you are up for an amazing high and happy feelings, this is a great strain for you. It has amazing uplifting features and acts fast. But, since it is really potent, you need just a bit of it to enjoy its great effects. If you aren’t accustomed to such high potency and Sativa-dominant strains, you might want to pace yourself. The Amnesia weed is perfect for daytime use.

Is The Amnesia Cannabis Strain Popular With Growers?

Such a popular strain cannot possibly be unpopular with growers. When you add the easy growing to the equation, you’ll get an idea of how much this strain is the growers’ favorite.

How To Grow Amnesia?

The Amnesia marijuana makes for a high-yielding plant. This is ideal for growers who look for an option that’s easy to cultivate. Thru right weather conditions for this strain include a healthy outdoor climate of the Mediterranean type. It doesn’t grow well in northern climates, which is why many growers choose to cultivate the Amnesia strain indoors.

When grown indoors, the plant of the Amnesia weed strain yields around 21 ounces of bud per square meter. It is ready for harvest in around 8 to 9 weeks.

When grown outdoors, the Amnesia marijuana strain will yield at around 42 ounces of weed per plant. The plant is ready for harvest around the end of October.

Is Amnesia useful to edibles?

You can find this strain in the form of weed, wax, and other edibles, extracts, etc.

What Are Alternative Strains For The Amnesia Marijuana Strain?

Some alternatives to Amnesia marijuana include:

  • Diesel is a Sativa-dominant strain with amazing genetics that come from Afghani and Mexican Sativa strain. Its THC level is much lower than that of the Amnesia weed, which makes it a better choice for newbie marijuana users. The effects are similar but, due to the lower potency levels, this strain does not have strong medicinal applications as Amnesia.
  • AK-47 is a Sativa-dominant strain known as a ‘one-hit wonder’.  It has high THC concentration, which makes the effects rather similar to those of Amnesia marijuana. However, when it comes to attractive smell and flavor, this strain lacks a lot in features.

Quit a special smell, very pungent diesel aroma, with earthy note. The high was quit strong, made me feel pretty uplifted, with a burst of creativity. The visual distortion it gives you is basically what I was looking for when I smoke a classic sativas. As it was quit potent, I found it perfect for treating conditions such as depression, and also stress. Most of the time I get worry for little things and this helped me keep my ideas clear. It also helped with pain, the high was so smooth that I could meditate when my eyes closed. I was feeling my head buzzing and at the same time couldn't feel my body. It was an abstract dream at that point. If you want that " floating on the clouds " high, Amnesia is for you. Ofc with lil doses, you get a nice boost of energy, but higher doses made me feel more lethargic and more happy

I've bought 3 different types of amnesia so far, and I can't tell which was the right one. Number 1 was eathy sweet and diesel and sour. The taste was the same, and gave me a nice head buzz, I was focused and creative. The second one was way sweet, almost no diesel aroma, but citrusy earthy instead, same goes for the taste and was basically more aggressive in the head than the previous one, but lasted less. The number 3 though was quit special, it was almost a combination with the two I had before. When I put my nose in the packaging it was an aggressive pungency like the N°1 and was sweet like the N°2 but instead a very sour sweet earthy smell, I didn't understand what I was smelling. The taste leaned more to the sweet earthy and pungent, and the high was a bit soft, but with a good happiness feeling that lasted longer than the 2 I bought before

This could be used for joint pain and migraine. Is it not so cool? That implies that for your joint pain, this cannabis serves a purpose of helping you get over pain. It also has medicinal purpose as someone with inflammation can have something to smoke and the joint pain can then be gone. Get quality marijuana. Get some healthy one. Get Amnesia

this marijuana can help with depression or any frm of anxiety. Sometimes you get worried over so many things and you don’t know how to jst curb that anxity. Do not worry. Just smoke some Amnesia. This works natrally. But you just get so high and inexperienced smokers should be extremely careful with their very first attempt at it
