Warp Speed Weed
We’ve long since passed the point where opting for a fast-grow strain means dealing with seriously disappointing yields. These days, even the most turbocharged strains out there can still deliver solid results with impressive consistency.
A case-in-point example of which being Amnesia Fast Version, which is just the thing when time is a factor. Developed by the folks at Seedsman, this masterpiece was engineered by combining the genetics of Soma's Amnesia with a top-secret hybrid strain. The exact genetic composition is, therefore, a mystery, but what we do know about this super swift Amnesia is that she’s a 70% Sativa strain with energy and motivation written all over her.
One of the heaviest-hitting daytime strains you’ll come across, these buds are just the thing for an all-action wake and bake. Their suitability for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up at work is somewhat more debatable, given the strain’s tendency to blast your brain into kingdom come during the initial stages at least.
In any case, Amnesia Fast Version is absolutely fantastic for bringing on wave after wave of creativity and inspired thinking. Not to mention, the immediate and lasting alleviation of stress, anxiety and lethargy. Procrastination simply isn’t an issue with a little of this stuff in your system.
As an added bonus, this hybrid has a fabulously fruity fragrance and flavor profile, regularly tests for around 20% THC and is an absolute gift to grow - needing just 50(ish) days of flowering to do her thing.
Flavor and Fragrance of Amnesia Fast Version
The most prominent and prolific terpenes in Amnesia Fast Version are terpinolene, caryophyllene and myrcene - famed for their fruity, peppery and herbal properties respectively. The result of which is a veritable cocktail of fruity-citrus fragrances, with a decadent dose of dank and old-school earthiness in the background. She’s another strain with a fragrance often compared to that of a damp forest floor, but in this instance with a way more fresh fruit on the nose.
Flavor-wise, this beauty doesn't disappoint. All of those fresh and fruity fragrances are released when the buds are burned, creating even more sour citrus and a slightly spicy punch. There’s also plenty of pine on the exhale, making for a fresh and invigorating aftertaste that lingers indefinitely.
A predominantly ‘old-school weed’ experience, though more refreshing and slightly more complex than your typical bag of Skunk.
All versions of Amnesia are famous (if not slightly notorious) for bringing body and mind to life with a burst of positive energy. The difference between Amnesia and similarly uplifting strains being that with this stuff, one toke too many and you’re high as a kite - far too blazed to get anything productive done and precisely why these buds are to be approached with caution as a productivity smoke (unless whatever it is you’re supposed to be doing isn’t of any real importance).
Artists and creative types have been turning to this strain since her first day on the scene. The immediate feeling is one of inspired thinking and relentless optimism, giving you the feeling that you can (and probably should) conquer the world. All of which is accompanied by a sense of overwhelming euphoria and positivity, which can make it a challenge to focus on one specific task.
In addition, Amnesia Fast Version stays true to her name by routinely bringing on bouts of short-term memory loss. Hence, even if you can bring yourself to focus on the task at hand, there’s a good chance you’ll have no idea what the hell it is you’re doing.
Enormous fun and enjoyment in the right setting, though not particularly appropriate in a formal workplace environment.
There’s no discernible physical stone to the experience, so the one thing this strain isn’t going to do is send you to sleep.
Novice smokers should approach Amnesia with extreme caution, as the initial effects at least can be tricky to tolerate. Red-eye and dry-mouth are also practically inevitable, so plan in advance for both.
Medical Uses of Amnesia Fast Version
There are times when Amnesia Fast Version is, without exception, just about the best therapeutic strain going (of course, depending on a variety of factors - your condition, your THC tolerance, what you want to get out of the experience etc). But when all you need is a massive dose of energy and something to snap you out of a pit of pure apathy, nothing gets the job done better than this.
The medical applications of Amnesia are almost exclusively cerebral/psychological, as these buds have no discernible impact on the body whatsoever.
If you’re struggling with fatigue, lethargy or a lack of motivation, this stuff will have you fired up and ready to go up in no time. If you’re feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or generally down in the dumps, a couple of modest hits and you’re back to your best.
Positivity and optimism hit like a freight train and keep on hitting for the duration, for a sense of sustained energy and drive that’s great for difficult days. Amnesia Fast Version can also bring on relatively lengthy cases of the munchies, making her an ideal choice for patients dealing with poor appetite.
Anyone prone to panic attacks or paranoia should approach these buds with caution, however, as they have a tendency to hit with extreme force during the early stages at least.
Growing Amnesia Fast Version
The name tells you all that really needs to be said about the cultivation process. Though it’s worth noting at this point that Amnesia Fast Version isn’t technically the fastest strain on the market. This purpose-engineered variant has a reduced flowering time of just 50 days or so, but it’s not the fastest ‘seed to harvest’ strain money can buy.
That said, this speedy specimen excels when it comes to yield size and potency for such a compact and comprehensively easy cultivation process. Indoors or out, Amnesia Fast Version manifests in the form of Christmas tree-like plants up to 150cm in height, which demonstrate excellent resistance to common plant problems and changeable weather conditions.
With little to no TLC required, you could be looking at anything from 500g per square meter of grow space indoors to a whopping 800g per square meter outside.
In short, Amnesia Fast Version is the strain to go for if you’re out for all the benefits of original Amnesia in record time. With 70% Sativa and 30% Indica genetics, this ganja girl hits hard with an uplifting and energizing high that lingers for hours on end.
Coupled with her elevated THC content (sometimes up to 23%) and fabulous flavor, Amnesia Fast Version is an enjoyable strain that satisfies on a variety of levels. It’s simply a case of testing your tolerance with modest quantities at first, in order to ensure that the initial soaring uplift isn’t quicker than you can comfortably handle.
