Liberty Haze Feminized Seeds Overview
The breeders at Barney’s Farm crossed a G13 Haze with a fast flowering ChemDawg ’91 to produce this indica/sativa hybrid that won a 2011 Cannabis Cup award. Measured at a whopping 25% THC, Liberty Haze also produces some CBD when left in flower longer. We grow this potent, high yield strain because they have great structure, respond well to topping and training, and aren’t particularly prone to pests.
Great structure for training
Stable size and structure
Strong odor while growing
Prone to nutrient issues
We’ve grown several of these and had 100% germination rate. We topped each multiple times and performed low stress training to get a flat canopy. The strong structure and rate of growth is impressive.
The flowers were large sized with medium resin production and a citrus fragrance. The ones we grew over winter turned dark purple since the temperatures often hovered in the low 60’s (~15C).
When flowered for the recommended minimum of 60 days, the high was intense and psycho-active, but we didn’t note anxiety or racing thoughts that can come with potent strains. Waiting a full 9 weeks to harvest allowed the CBD to fully form and toned down the intensity of the high. The effects are relaxing and hazy without the couch-lock that you get with a lot of heavy Indicas.
Easy to Grow?
These plants were very easy to grow. They weren’t particularly prone to pests or nutrient issues. They responded well to topping and training and had great structure overall.
Speed to Flower?
The breeder recommends 60 days minimum, which will result in potent buds with rather extreme psychoactive effects. Waiting the maximum recommended of 65 days resulted in buds with a more relaxing sedative effect. The flowers were large and dense with medium resin production.
Liberty Haze produces a euphoric effect, making it a a good choice for treating anxiety, stress and depression. If you want the maximum CBD, you will need to flower for at least 65 days. Learn more on how to find the perfect time to harvest for medical purposes in our harvesting guide.
Liberty Haze has very high levels of THC, at around 25%. It has medium levels of CBD (~2%) to offset the THC. The effects are uplifting, and euphoric.
The advertised yield is very high, at 600 grams per square meter and we saw similar results. The buds were large and dense with medium levels of resin development. The overall yield was high compared to other strains.
Liberty Haze has a nice, but mild, citrus flavor with earthy undertones. It cures well and is relatively smooth to smoke.
We grew in a 4×4 tent with 4 LED lights: one 1200W light, one 800W light, and 2 400W COB lights. The temp was between 60 and 70 degrees throughout the grow. We grew in a soil/coco mix and used General Hydroponics Flora series as the base nutrient for this grow. Once per week, we added CalMag and compost tea.
