Nothing short is expected of Sunset Haze. As a descendant of the quick-acting Haze, its onset is immediately noticeable following the first two or three puffs beginning with an uplifting buzz that swarms the mind.
For many casual users, the clarity is like a breath of fresh air from a mental slump. It inspires a surge of creativity so thoughts flow and form freely into innovative ideas. Because of its wake-and-bake qualities, Sunset Haze is perfect for brainstorming sessions.
After about an hour or two, a light pressure ebbs down from the temples. It soothes the muscles and loosens up tension. It is not uncommon for users to move with the fluidity of a well-oiled machine. As a heaviness sets in, many eventually become drowsy.
Sunset Haze is quite fascinating. It combines the scent of various fruits like peaches, mangoes, and cantaloupes. Hints of raspberries and pears are also noticeable underneath the sweet overtones. Broken apart or combusted, a floral note fills the room.
Carrying over to Sunset Haze’s flavor is its parent Tangerine Haze’s strong citrus note. Enhancing it are sweet notes of ripe fruits such as mangoes and raspberries. On the exhale, it leaves a pleasing floral aftertaste that lingers in the mouth even after the last hit.
It is common for users to experience a cottonmouth while smoking Sunset Haze. After all, marijuana’s moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids normally interfere with the production of saliva. Some may also experience dry eyes to some degree. Neither are a cause for concern due to their mildness. Moreover, both usually go away with time. If symptoms persist, downing a few glasses of water immediately remediates the dehydration.
Stress relief is among the most widely cited reasons for using marijuana. And, to this end, Sunset Haze works perfectly. The combined effects of its THC, CBD, and cannabinoids like terpenes thoroughly frees users from the harmful effects of stress.
If left unattended, for example, chronic stress leads to the early development of depression and other mental health issues like PTSD. Through its happy high, Sunset Haze provides users with a temporary reprieve by calming the mind and uplifting spirits.
One of the best times to use Sunset Haze is right before a meal. This is because it encourages a hearty appetite. At the same time, the same psychoactive compound also eases pain form various aches in the body, particularly the stomach.
Sleep is an integral part of the healing process. It helps the body rest so cells regenerate and hormones balance out. Stress, however, makes it difficult for drowsiness to set in and is thus a contributing factor to insomnia. By totally relaxing the mind and the body, Sunset Haze not only makes dozing off easier, it also positively enhances the quality and quantity of sleep.
Sunset Haze is a relatively tall plant that can sometimes cramp up one’s growing area. For this reason, growers need to top the plant early or hasten its vegetative period. This is especially true for those with truly limited spaces.
Apart from its height, Sunset Haze is easy to attend to. Its Indica genes provide it with a sturdy structure with branches that can carry the weight of its heavy buds. Not only that, it can also withstand a variety of issues such as strong gusts of wind and high levels of moisture in the air.
Still, many prefer growing the strain inside in spite of its great performance outdoors. Apart from added protection against pests, indoor growing environments allow breeders to adjust factors like temperature, lighting, and humidity.
Temperature control plays a huge factor in how well the plant performs. It needs a nice warm climate to thrive during the vegetative stage. Exposing to cooler evening conditions brings out its vibrant pink, red, and purple hues.
Indoors, Sunset Haze flowers between 8 to 10 weeks but can sometimes bloom as early as 7 weeks depending on the grower’s skill level. It produces 12 to 14 ounces per square meter once mature.
Garden grown Sunset Haze flowers from second to last week of October. Once the batch fully flowers, each plant yields at least 14 ounces worth of buds.
