Mango Haze is a tasty and popular strain that offers as much potency as it does flavor. This sativa-dominant hybrid is the brainchild of Mr. Nice Seeds, the Netherlands-based creators of Super Silver Haze, and is a cross between Northern Lights #5, Skunk, and Haze. The complex genetic combination results in a refreshing tropical aroma alongside a strong, dreamlike high. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 measures Mango Haze’s potency at between 9% to 19% THC.
Mango Haze makes its bag appeal clear right away with large, elongated buds. These flowers have an extended spade-like shape, somewhat like oversized pine cones. The leaves are in keeping with a characteristically sativa bud structure — they appear loose and in pieces and can be easily torn away from their central stems. These soft, fluffy leaves are a bright shade of spring green and are threaded through with hairy yellow and orange pistils. Translucent amber trichomes cover all surfaces of these leaves, giving the flowers a slightly golden sheen.
When properly cured, flowers of Mango Haze burst with a strong citrus scent. Distinct notes of mango prevail, along with a skunky-sweet, almost fermented odor. When Mango Haze’s flowers are ground up, they give off a rich and spicy incense, likely passed on from the Afghani landrace in parent strain Northern Lights’ background. When burnt in a pipe or a joint, Mango Haze gives off a smooth and easily palatable smoke that tastes both sweet and hashy on the exhale.
