Amnesia is the name given to several strains, which cumulatively have won at least 18 awards. Amnesia has been officially recorded as the cross between Bubblegum and Super Silver Haze.
Usage of Amnesia strains is often characterized by a loss of short-term memory, which is replaced by what is remembered as happy times. The strain can produce increased energy, which is generally followed by a light body tingling. Paranoia and dizziness may accompany the usual dry eyes and mouth as side effects.
The Amnesia strains are usually recommended for people dealing with emotional, anxiety and stress disorders as the Sativa-style high is good for mood lifting and stress relief. Amnesia is recommended for use during down times. This strain is also beneficial for individuals suffering from stress-related insomnia.
For many years, Amnesia was 'clone only' and offered by Hy-Pro. Almost all of the other Amnesia plants are descendants of this first one. Most Amnesia strains are Sativa dominant and require approximately 80 days to flower. Some Amnesia strains grow to 180 cm in height. Many of the strains are recommended for growing indoors, but some have been successfully grown outside as well. Amnesia strains have recorded THC counts of up to 20%.
