Royal Haze Strain Review

Whether you’re interested in the development of royal haze, or you’re looking into how it affects the body, then keep on reading. 


Royal haze is a Sativa-dominant strain but is also made up of around 15% THC 5% CBD and is considered to be a great party starter, so if you were looking for something to have to relax before bed then this won’t be your go-to strain.

This bud is potently skunky so you’ll be able to smell it instantly within a room. 

What Is Royal Haze Strain?

How Was Royal Haze Developed?

Royal haze is a combination of Skunk, Haze, and Northern Lights genetics and is one of the shining stars of Dinafem Seeds. 


Royal haze boasts a range of flavors encapsulated into buds. A mix of tangy citrus fruits along with a wood-like earthy tone with a distinct skunky taste makes this strain come alive and makes it easily smokeable all day.

Odor & Flavor

This strain has a distinguishable smell that will linger in your environment even long after you’ve smoked.  Just like its taste, it offers citrus and almost tropical odors with the distinctive skunky smell accompanied by some spicy and earthy undertones. 

Physical Appearance

When grown to perfect, royal haze typically has the appearance of most quality sativas you’ll come across. It has generously sized buds that have a nomination of deep greens and tinged amber on the hairs. 

Grow Info

Royal haze is famous for its rapid growth as it can go from seed to harvest indoors in as little as 12 weeks. It’s also an ideal candidate for a novice cannabis grower as it’s a resilient plant and easy to cultivate.

It can be grown indoors and outdoors but tends to do a lot better in milder climates, so growing outside during the summer is recommended in comparison to using heat lamps indoors.

If you’re planning on growing royal haze outdoors, then it is normally ready to harvest around October once it’s endured the warm and dry climates of the summer and early fall.

You’ll be able to get your royal haze seeds from Dinafem so you won’t have trouble finding any to grow. 

Sativas are normally known for having weaker stalks, however, this is mostly untrue when it comes to royal haze. Whilst it does have naturally sturdy stalks and branches, you will have to stay on top of its tower heights if you want to produce higher yields. 


The royal haze strain is long-lasting, which is exactly what you want to hear when you consider how euphoric the effects of smoking are. The feeling of overwhelming positivity will linger with you throughout the day with work seeming a lot easier than it usually is.

Those who are more introverted tend to be noticeably more outgoing and initiating conversation after a few puffs of royal haze. 

As this is a predominantly sativa-based strain, you’ll get a cerebral high which will improve productivity and help you function creatively and mentally when you need it most. 

People may casually smoke this every day to feel lighter and brighter when one is usually more pessimistic, which is why this strain is often preferred by people with struggle with depression, which we’ll touch on in a bit.

This is a great strain to smoke as a party option as it’ll give you a euphoric feeling throughout with your body feeling eased of any pent-up tension but without the heaviness of a hangover feeling the next morning.

The come-on of royal haze is slow but noticeable and gradually the effects become more potent as time progresses. 

Side Effects

As with most strains, some if not most people will experience a dry mouth along with dry eyes and even redness. Those who are not used to smoking or have taken too deep a puff may feel slightly dizzy for a few moments before the buzz begins to kick in.

Royal haze is not the kind of strain to make you want to stretch out and take a nap, so it’s unlikely that you’ll find yourself passed out after smoking a blunt of this. 

Those who’ve never smoked a sativa-based strain may find themselves with a mild headache after smoking as the potent euphoric feeling may be a shock to the body as their tolerance won’t be good. 

Medical Appointments

Medical users will also use this royal haze strain to alleviate mental health symptoms and also any chronic pain or medical conditions that they suffer from day to day. 

People who struggle with anxiety, stress, and bouts of depression often will benefit from regularly or occasionally smoking royal haze, depending on the severity of their problems.

If you struggle with chronic fatigue or even find yourself having to drink 5 coffees within the first hour of being awake in the morning, you benefit from the uplifting edge that royal haze brings.

Anyone who suffers from migraines, inflammation, and nausea will find that this strain can relieve 

symptoms to help them carry out their tasks for the day without feeling too in pain. 

Similar Strains

If you can’t find can’t get your hands on any royal haze seeds or buds for yourself, then you may want to consider finding an alternative but similar strain.

As royal haze is predominantly sativa based, you’ll want to find something similar to give you that euphoric and creative high.

Two recommendations we have are Purple Haze and Pineapple Express as these have similar THC and Sativa makeups that will give you a similar feeling

Strain Cannabinoids 

The cannabinoids of royal haze may differ slightly depending on the batch, however, the average cannabinoids stand at 15% THC, 5% CBD, 85% Sativa, and 15% Indica. 

Higher THC contents in strains will produce psychoactive effects, but it can lead to anxiety and paranoia. 

CBD has a different effect, where it’ll reduce physiological problems and even ease pain in the body. 

Sativa-based statins will produce a more energetic and creative high whereas indica-based strains create a more relaxed and chilled out high.
