Among its best uses is reducing stress levels. Its soothing euphoria calms the overwhelming dread induced of having too much in one’s plate. At the same time, it uplifts the mood with its happy high and pushes back negative feelings or thoughts. Albeit temporary, its anti-depressant qualities work well with managing symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues like PTSD.

Its high THC levels have muscle relaxing properties that reduce swelling, redness, and inflammation. By temporarily unties knots in the body, it appeases aches and pains that prevent users from moving around freely. Doing so also makes it a quick but temporary solution to fatigue.


Memory Loss grows lanky. Despite this, it is not a difficult plant to grow. It stands tall against strong winds and is relatively resistant to humidity. However, it does have difficulty adjusting to the cold weather of the northern hemisphere due to its propensity for a Mediterranean climate. To this end, growers may move the predominantly Sativa bud in a controllable environment where one can mimic the long sunny days and the warmth.

Topping is essential when cultivating the strain indoors. It manages Memory Loss’ height and initiates the flowering period, so the plant has ample time to create buds. After entering the blossoming phase, growers should train the plant for higher yields. One of the best methods is the Screen of Green which works best with tall Sativa-leaning plants. It requires installing a screen a few inches above the current canopy then weaving the branches into the net. It distributes light evenly so it can produce more budding sites.

Branches usually move toward the light as it grows. At times, it can get too close to the light where the heat accidentally burns off the tips. Moving the budding site away toward the ends of the screen will ensure that the rest soak up equal amounts of light which will significantly improve bud production.

Another way to increase yields is through the hydroponics setup, which delivers nutrients straight to the roots. It not only doubles turnouts but also enhances trichome production, resulting in more potent buds that are almost scot-free for traces of chemicals. However, for better flavors, soil is the best option. It is also beginner-friendly.

Flowering Time

Growers can expect Memory Loss to flower 10 to 12 weeks after initiating the flowering period. A high yielder, it produces between 12 to 16 of buds per square meter.

It takes quite some time for Memory Loss to fully mature in the northern hemisphere. However, flowers usually bloom around the last few days of October to the second or third week of November. It rewards growers with at least 16 ounces of buds per plant.
