Honolulu Haze is a Sativa-dominant CBD strain that lets you feel all the soothing effects of cannabis without the intoxication of THC. A mashup of Hawaiian Haze and AF6 genes, this flowery fresh, earthy strain wraps the senses in an aromatic wonderland. In this article, we’ll dive deep into this tropical strain’s history, effects, and more!

Honolulu Haze CBD Lineage

Honolulu Haze CBD is born from Hawaiian Haze, an airy Sativa strain known for its floral aroma. Hawaiian Haze is a mashup of the truly native Hawaiian strain and the potent Sativa strain Haze. Some believe it’s the rich soil of Hawaii that lends Hawaiian (and in turn Honolulu Haze) its powerful, flavorful effects. Haze was originally grown and cultivated in Santa Cruz, California, by the Haze brothers. Hawaiian Haze is the tropical cannabis bridge connecting the golden coast and the Aloha state.

Breeders took the lovely Hawaiian Haze and crossed it with an elusive strain called AF6 to create our beloved CBD-rich hemp flower, Honolulu Haze. AF6 is believed to be descended from the Landrace (meaning truly native) strain Afghani, though its true lineage is mysterious. As you can tell, it took careful breeding to create this CBD flower, but it was all worth it in the end. This internationally loved Sativa-dominant hybrid strain has it all: potent effects, delicious flavor, and a sensational aroma.

Honolulu Haze CBD Strain: Terpene Profile

Terpenes are compounds that give cannabis flowers their flavors and aromatic qualities. Many terpenes also deliver unique benefits, just like cannabinoids. Let’s take a look at the terpenes in Honolulu Haze that make it so crisp, exotic, and beneficial.

Also found in pine needles, basil, and rosemary, this terpene gives Honolulu Haze a piney scent. Pinene sends your senses to the middle of a densely-wooded forest. Cannabis experts believe this terpene has potent soothing, anti-inflammatory, and sedating qualities.


Floral, earthy, and citrusy, caryophyllene naturally occurs in black pepper, basil, and oregano. This spicy terpene gives Honolulu Haze its warm aroma. It may also have powerful effects on the endocannabinoid system.


Bisabolol is a light, sweet terpene that’s found in chamomile. This terpene gives Honolulu Haze its fragrant floral aroma, and it may contribute extra soothing properties to the strain. Some studies have suggested that bisabolol may promote anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial, and calming qualities.
