Hanna Haze by Solace Health’s KNUBA brand is a variant of the popular cultivar Sour Diesel. According to Wikileaf, origins of the legendary Sour Diesel were lost in the underground cannabis market of the 1980’s and 90’s. It is rumored however that this cultivar was created from seeds bought at a 1991 Grateful Dead concert in Colorado before being distributed throughout the East Coast for further development. These seeds were also rumored to be combined with the seeds of a Chemdawg plant, and later on Super Skunk, resulting in the creation of Sour Diesel as well as OG Kush. Sour Diesel is popular for its pungent gasoline-like aroma and strong energizing effects.

Hanna Haze produces moderately-sized, dense, leafy buds with hues of light green and yellow within its structure. Upon further examination, you will notice this cultivar is covered in a slight dusting of resin, giving the buds a sticky feel. Despite only being lightly covered in trichomes, as you break up the flower, you will notice a resinous blanket embedded within its packed, dense clusters. Distinctively, these sticky clusters are engulfed by long protruding orange-brown pistils that help create an appealing contrast between the light, springtime hues found on these buds. Hanna Haze also has a noticeable shimmer when light hits its surface due to its resin-coat. When this flower is ground, the crumble resembles a warm sand texture as the layer of resin embedded within these dense structures dusts off and glazes the lightly-colored grounds with a blanket of glitter that gleams with natural light.
What does it smell like:
It came as no surprise that Hanna Haze, a Sour Diesel variant, has such a vibrant and rich aromatic profile. What makes this Sour Diesel variant different from its other phenotypes is the dominant citrus and pine fragrances emitting from this flower. Hanna Haze releases a heavy aroma of citrus complemented by vibrant tones of fresh pine. Still true to the Sour Diesel genetics though, you will undoubtedly detect the legendary fuel-like musk released from the flower. Another prominent indicator of Hanna Haze’s Sour Diesel genetics is just how quickly its fragrance can overwhelm a room. As this herb is vaporized, the diesel odor becomes more dominant, and the odor could remain for a while after consumption.
What does it taste like:
Hanna Haze offers a slightly different array of tastes from that of your typical Sour Diesel strains. Upon inhale, you experience a smooth burst of sweet citrus flavors combined with fresh pine and pepper. On exhale, the sweet citrus is eclipsed by that legendary tart and fuel-like cocktail that lingers in your mouth. The varied sweet and sour combinations create an energizing and flavorful experience. Hanna Haze is sweet, sour, and smooth through inhale and through exhale.
