Appearance & Aroma
Mango Haze makes its bag appeal apparent right away with large, elongated nugs. These buds have an extended spade-like shape, similar to oversized pine cones. The leaves are consistent with a Sativa bud formation — they appear loose and in pieces that tear away easily from their stems. These light, fluffy leaves are a brilliant shade of spring green and are threaded throughout with hairy orange and yellow pistils. Clear amber trichomes cover all surfaces of these leaves, giving the flowers a somewhat golden finish.
Effects & Benefits
When correctly cured, the flowers of Mango Haze burst with a potent citrus scent. Clear notes of mango prevail, along with a skunky-sweet, almost fermented odour. When grinding up Mango Haze’s flowers, they give off a deep and spicy incense likely carried on from the Afghani landrace in parent Northern Lights’ history. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Mango Haze gives off an easily palatable and smooth smoke that tastes sweet and hashy upon the exhale.
Parent strain Haze is famous for imparting a powerful, dreamy head high. Mango Haze gives a slow, creeping high that might take several minutes after consuming to unveil its trippy effects. Ultimately, users will begin to feel joint pressure around the forehead and eyes. As they adapt to this sensation, they might pick up on adjustments to their sensory perception, including an increased awareness of certain sounds and sights; an odd feeling of time dilation is also generally reported. This mindset can spark free-flowing creativity that may be great for brainstorming; however, not as helpful for more task-based analytical jobs. In the proper set and setting, Mango Haze might also trigger some mellow introspection. Mango Haze provides the energy required to illuminate mundane daily tasks like cleaning the house or running errands for the consumer more actively.
As this high progresses, subtle Indica effects creep in on the back end, numbing any bodily stress and supporting deep, easy breathing. Such a mindset can help users melt into their surroundings as the outer world shrinks into the background. Although it’s unlikely to knock users out with couch lock, Mango Haze can reduce any internal physical or mental stress. Because it decreases down into a downbeat, smooth high, Mango Haze is best enjoyed late afternoon or evening.
Mango Haze’s even-handed influences can also have several purposes for medical cannabis users. The strain’s mood-elevating characteristics can momentarily take the edge off of depression and stress. Meanwhile, its subtle physical high may provide mild relief from deep-seated pains and aches, as well as common irritations like headaches and nausea. Because it is unlikely to produce the kind of intense, recursive thought patterns that lead to paranoia, Mango Haze might be a good choice for users prone to panic or who have a lower THC tolerance.
A harmonious combination of mental and physical effects, the Mango Haze strain is an excellent example of a flower that doesn’t sacrifice flavour for potency. There’s also a CBD-rich type of Mango Haze available for those looking for a more therapeutic high.
