Utopia Haze offers a complex and pretty distinguishable scent that once you have experienced once, will always stay with you. A delightful mixture of spicy notes and an exotic, sweet, and somewhat mysterious undertone make this a real mouth-watering flower.
Users report upon first sniff an overwhelming hint of spicy hash that is indeed intriguing, but it is the notes released upon breaking this bud up that entice you in. Sweet, spicy and unusual, the notes mingle together for a party in your nostrils.
Transforming into a citrusy sweet and earthy scent upon inhaling, a lot is going on with this bud, which certainly sets it apart from the norm.
Utopia Haze is a towering bud; often growing up to 130cm, it is certainly large and offers some stunning views for the budding grower. Boasting a sturdy stature, Utopia Haze has broad branches and a generous coating of frosty white crystals, which emphasize the plant’s size.
Compact buds in a deep green hue, with fiery amber hairs throughout, this is a delightful, hardy bud and makes for a pretty above average looking plant.

Utopia Haze Cannabis Strain Grow Info
When it comes to cultivating Utopia Haze for yourself, there is a certain level of skill and knowledge required to do this bud justice. Due to its sativa structure, this plant will need significant upkeep, and so beginners should probably steer away from growing this bud.
The efforts of cultivating Utopia Haze are well worth it, with the bud offering a highly generous yield when well-grown, with up to 650g per square meter on offer!
This hardy bud is a product of its clever backcrossing, offering a highly mold and disease-resistant plant that can suffer through a lot. With a flowering time of between 70-75 days, patience will be necessary, but the reward is well worth the wait.
For those opting to grow their bud outdoors, harvesting time comes around the end of October.
Utopia Haze Cannabis Strain Medicinal Benefits
The effects of this sativa dominant bud are pretty versatile and can be applied to a multitude of conditions. Overall, this is a profoundly uplifting, cerebral strain which offers a real boost of energy, making it an ideal antidote to depression, anxiety, and fatigue.
On the flipside of its high-energy effects, Utopia Haze also gives a wave of physical relaxation that will leave you feeling pain-free and slightly sedated, so if you are struggling with insomnia, chronic pain or muscle tension, this could be a perfect remedy.
The high is long-lasting, which is why so many patients have opted to medicate with this bud to reduce the amount of times in a day that one would need to self-medicate. While the high lasts for hours, the effects do differ from start to finish, with users reporting a massive boost in motivation which eventually gives way to a feeling of being heavily stoned, relaxed and somewhat lazy.
The hazy relaxation at the end is ideal for getting off to sleep; however, we recommend users indulge in Utopia Haze a good few hours before they wish to sleep in order to ride the wave of cerebral energy that kicks this high off.
Patients suffering from glaucoma, eye pressure, arthritis, migraines, and headaches have all reported this bud has some potent yet not overwhelming benefits to their condition.
Utopia Haze Potential Side Effects
We haven’t come across many reports that Utopia Haze causes panic or paranoia. However, like with many sativas, the cerebral effects can often be overwhelming, so as always we would recommend using caution with this bud.
Dry eyes, dry mouth, and potential dizziness can occur with this strain, mainly if you overdo the dose before you are ready.
