Like the name implies, Memory Loss acts quickly and leaves a lasting impression on the mind. This sativa dominant hybrid is no slouch when it comes to THC potency. With THC levels reaching as high as 28.0%, average and high tolerant users will likely both have difficulty handling Memory Loss. The effects are unlike many other sativa heavy hybrids in that the head high is much greater and leads to more focus driven activity. Users report experiencing tingling in the eyes immediately during inhalation of the cannabis that slowly transitions into a full body uplifted high.
Focus is the key word here as the trip has been noted to be much more engaging if the consumer can retain even the slightest amount of focus once the high reaches its tipping point. Stated as being perfect for everyday chores and for the early morning rise, but for those with less willpower to remain coherent in thought will be glued to the couch.
While this may seem like a downside, the sedated effect is actually somewhat sought after for this hybrid. The couch magnet pulls you in and leaves you in a unique cerebral state that offers those afflicted to explore their minds freely, though forgetfully in most cases.
The flavor hints of fruity tang with an undertone mixture of pine and wood. Similar to the flavoring, the taste is somewhat fruity and nature infused. Some report, after grinding up the material, that the aroma has a certain musk to it found in more damp earthy soil. Once ignited, Memory Loss’s smell becomes much harsher and the smoke remains difficult to hold in resulting in a predominant chance of coughing with each toke.
Originating in the west coast of the United States, the Archive Seed Bank created the Memory Loss strain. Not much information is known about the origination of Memory Loss. Ironically, with the name, the information is surely out there though lost in the shuffle of memory loss studies, articles, and research that is widely linked to cannabis use in general.
The Memory Loss hybrid is a split between a considerable 70.0% sativa and 30.0% indica. This split is made between the sativa Amnesia Haze and indica Face Off OG. Where Memory Loss shines is in its THC potency. THC is often as high as 28.0%, however the average treads close to 23.0%. Emphatically, Memory Loss provides a rough trip with a sativa balance that promotes users to not be reduced to a hollow shell, though this is not always the outcome produced

Medical Benefits of Memory Loss
Memory Loss has been found to be beneficial in all stress related issues. The mental effects produced from inhalation relieve the user of severe stress and depression. Uplifting the mood of patients works in helping them to proceed throughout the day unhindered by life’s daily difficulties. While patients that choose to opt out of the day time relief and rather utilize the benefits of the strain in the evenings will be greeted with a relaxing end of the day meditation period.
An important warning to keep in mind however, is that due to the elevated degree of mental alteration potential in Memory Loss, users that regularly experience panic or severe anxiety should most likely stay away from this strain.
Like the origin of Memory Loss, the terpene profile appears to be hidden amidst the fog; just out of clear view. However, despite this, when paying close attention to the flavor, effects, and smell I surmise that it possibly predominantly consists of Myrcene and Ocimene.
Myrcene is the easiest bet as it is the most common terpene found in all cannabis. Aside from this notion, the focus driven experience users seek from Memory Loss also leads to this conclusion. Though some note that they find it difficult to focus while utilizing Memory Loss, however, the potential for stimulated focus remains present. Myrcene is a welcome addition to the strain as it supplies pain relief and helps as an anti-inflammatory. This is perhaps responsible for the citrus flavoring as well.
Limonene may also be a key terpene within the Memory Loss strain. The mood boosting effects that have come to be signatures of the strain may be found within terpenes of this variety. Not only is this terpene a mood elevator, but also contributes significantly to stress relief and depression. Both are central to the medical benefits found in Memory Loss. Limonene, in high concentrations, is often associated with various types of Haze which Memory Loss is directly connected through the breeding of Amnesia Haze.
