This combination between short and long photoperiod plant has gathered a lot of attention from users, as well as online, and has become very popular among experts. The cultivar’s amazing genetic parents paved the way for a unique blend that’s really one of a kind. Here at Green Nexus, we want you to have the confidence you need when purchasing your seeds. That’s why we are coming up with detailed strain profiles so that you know what you can expect, without any surprises. In this article, we’ll discuss how Auto Skywalker Haze affects your endocannabinoid system, what sorts of effects you might anticipate, as well as the best growing methods.
Growing Auto Skywalker Haze
Growing Auto Skywalker Haze is an experience in and of itself. This particular strain matures within about 12 weeks of planting. She is a high yielder, producing between 450-600 g/m2 when indoors and around 500 g/m2 on average when in good outdoor conditions. It can reach a height of between 1.50 – 2 meters. She is a plant that loves a lot of sun and can handle harsher environments which makes her resilient, and resistant to bugs and mold. When outdoors, 1-3 weeks longer may be needed in adverse conditions. If you want a sturdy plant with hard and compact buds that are covered in crystals, then create a good environment for her to thrive in! You can also get two phenotypes that take a little longer to appear by allowing it to stay in the blossoming stage longer (13 to 14 weeks – ie. an additional two weeks), which will result in a slightly foxtail look on your buds.
How Does Auto Skywalker Haze Interact with the Endocannabinoid System
Let’s take a quick look at the endocannabinoid system and how this strain affects it to learn more about how it works and what sort of effects it has.
Understanding the Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system is part of the nervous system that comprises cellular communication. Its job is to maintain homeostasis and regulate the body’s response to stress. It does this by using compounds called cannabinoids, which are analogous to the cannabinoids found in grass. Endocannabinoids interact with cannabinoid receptors on nerve cells throughout your brain and body, many of which are found in parts involved with pain processing and memory. These fatty acids are essential for a wide range of bodily functions, including digestion, sleep, moods, and more (Pacher, 2006).
It’s made up of three separate parts:
- Cannabinoid receptors: One of two main types of receptors, cannabinoid one (CB1) and cannabinoid two (CB2). They fit the endocannabinoids like a lock and key and allow for communication between your body and mind.
- Endocannabinoids: Compounds such as anandamide bind to your cannabinoid receptor cells to get them to do work for you. They help control pain, sleep, appetite, moods, and memory. Since they work with receptors to maintain a sense of balance in your body, endocannabinoid deficiency can lead to a variety of disorders.
- Enzymes: Catalyze the production and degradation of endocannabinoids
As a result, the system as a whole impacts several bodily processes (Battista, Di Tommaso, Bari & Maccarrone, 2012) such as:
- Appetite and hunger
- Immune response
- Fatigue and sleep
Type of Strain: Long Photoperiod Plant vs Short Photoperiod Plant
Being predominantly Long Photoperiod Plant, this strain has properties that are energizing and inspire users to be creative. Meanwhile it’s quite strong because of its Potency potency that ranges between 20-26%. A blessing for Long Photoperiod Plant enthusiasts who enjoy strong highs!
This strain is ideal for those busy yet stressful days that need the rest of the night to be dedicated to relaxation where you’ll be left feeling uplifted, energetic, social and tranquil. Auto Skywalker Haze will fix you up right away!
Phytocannabinoids and Auto Skywalker Haze
Both grass L. short photoperiod plant and grass L. long photoperiod plant contain cannabinoids that are structurally similar to endocannabinoids produced by the body and are the key active components in the plants. The ECS is controlled by the endocannabinoid system, which includes two primary cannabinoids: tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) and cannabidiol (CBD).
- Tetrahydrocannabinol (Potency) is responsible for the psychoactive effect of grass while cannabinol (CBN) is converted from Potency when exposed to light and oxygen. Potency reduces nausea, increases appetite, has anti-cancer properties, stimulates neurogenesis in adults, relieves chronic pain, reduces seizures, relaxes muscles, among other things.
- However, CBD or Cannabidiol has been found to have powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action which reduces the risks of many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, and even schizophrenia (Crippa et al., 2011).
The Terpene Profile: Auto Skywalker Haze
Terpenes and flavonoids are the chemicals that give plants their smells and tastes. According to research, terpenes can influence the desired effects of grass by modulating endocannabinoids and cannabinoids. Grass has over 100 terpenes, but some are found in higher concentrations, giving the strain its distinctive scent, flavor, and health benefits.
Beta-Pinene: Pinene is the most common terpene in grass, found in up to 50% of all plant matter. It’s also one of the most prevalent chemicals produced by conifer trees. It has anti-inflammatory properties and can act as an expectorant, making it valuable for treating asthma and other respiratory conditions (Uribe, Ramirez, & Peña, 1985).
Myrcene: This terpene is prevalent in mangoes and hops, but is also found in grass. It’s an analgesic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and a muscle relaxant that can be used to treat insomnia (Kamatou & Viljoen, 2008).
Caryophyllene: This terpene has an effect on serotonin receptors, so it may be useful for treating depression, along with inflammation and pain. It also inhibits the uptake of GABA which causes anxiety.
