Liberty Haze (Barney's Farm)
There are many angry reports all over the web deprecating bad germination rates and endless flowering time in some phenos. Other growers' experience is quite positive. We recommend to germinate many seeds at once and cull those that haven't started flowering within 2 weeks after the switch to 12/12. The flowering time can be from 71 to 120+ days with 85-90 days in the average. There are a lot of sativa-leaning phenos but their relatively big height seldom creates a problem. The branches require support at the later stages of flowering. The plants don't like high doses of fertilizers and excessive heat.
Most reports are favourable. The high comes on quick and lasts long making the user uplifted, euphoric, relaxed, happy, clear-headed and eager to work and socialize. It is good against depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, bad appetite. Inexperienced users - after an initial burst of energy - get the couch-lock and heavy eyes. Some are couch-locked instantly.
The smell is nice (mostly citrus, musk, rotting fruit and diesel) but the taste is not everyone's favourite. It's a smooth smoke though.
Cannabis Cup Winner 2011.
G13 X ChemDawg 91.
An excellent plant in both indoor and outdoor environments. Long dense cola’s start to really fatten up in the last three weeks.
The Liberty Haze buzz is immediate and long lasting with an alert and euphoric cerebral effect. Has a distinct and refreshing lime taste and fragrance. Lab tests have rated the THC content as high as 25 percent.

Type: Indoor, Outdoor and Greenhouse
Genetics: Sativa 50% Indica 50%
High: Strong up high
Flowering: 60 - 70 days
Height: 50 - 100 cm
Yield: + 600 gm per m2
Prizes: First prize
Medical: High THC / High CBD
Climate: Temperate and Hot
Growth: Flowered in 91 Days under 275w LED's. Very Sativa, Takes a long time to mature. Some heat stress in the first few weeks may have slowed progress. Topped @ 4 weeks. Grown in 2G Smart Pots with FFoF mixed with perlite.
Nutes: Very Basic. Veg: Jack's Classic All Purpose - Flower: Jack's Classic Blossom Bloomer & Cal-Mag. Flushed 10 days before harvest.
Yield: I cannot comment on yield with any authority as this was my first grow and I made mistakes.
Bag Appeal: 8/10 Nice frosty nugs. Bright orange hairs. Light green buds with dark forest green highlights. Shit looks dank as hell.
Smell: 6/10 Hard to describe. Kind of a mix of citrus and moldy tea leaves. Not unpleasant, Just different.
Taste: 8/10 Nice & Smooth, Not harsh. The tea leaf smell is replaced with a more musky lemony flavor. It's the best way i can describe it.
The High: 9/10 I want to rate this higher but I don't want to get carried away. What can I say? It begins as a clear headed, nervous, racy sativa high and just when your getting a hold on it it drops you almost into a speedy couchlock, if that makes sense? It seems cumulative as well. I start the day smoking this and functioning as best I can. By the end of the day I can barely keep my eyes open.
Comments & Observations: This was my first grow so take my review as such. I'm sure given a chance to grow this strain again it would be even better. The smell, the taste and I'm sure I could yield better and grow it in a shorter time. That being said this pheno is very sativa. She grows fast, tall and takes a long time to bloom but the smoke is totally worth it.
So you got the sativa dominate type. I have 7 Liberty Hazes in vegetation right now. Prolly after this run I wont do Barney's Farm gear again. In the process of flowering some pineapple chunks, critical og and their ak blue mammoth. The PC is an extremely sensitive plant and notorious for uncontrolled stretching. The critical og actually has a great plant profile short internodes and doing quite well. The AK auto didnt auto but started flowering in a day after i switched photoperiod to 12/12 looking lke a beast atm. Hope the smoke from all those three BF strains are solid but still wont do BF in the future again not unless they are free seeds.
The entire pack ended up being the sativa phenos. At the time I purchased/started growing the LH there was almost no info on here or anywhere else other than the seedbanks and BF's website. I did not even know there were several pheno's. I guess I got unlucky. I've been smoking the LH for some time now and am very happy with the smoke. I'd love to grow the sativa phenos outside if I could. They'd reach for the stars and probably touch them as well.
I was only avoiding the total weight because I felt after seeing the results in might reflect badly on the strain rather then the grower, where blame should be placed. This was my first grow and like many first timers I started off with cfls in a tiny cabinet and then slowly upgraded until by the end I had plenty of lights in a large tent. Also I should note that because I was not running a fan during "lights out" that I developed a powdery mildew problem at the end and some cola's (two large ones) got bud rot and had to be chopped and tossed.
I'm explaining this in detail just so you know why my yield was so low. Anyway, on to your questions!
When all was said and done I was able to yield 90grams, dry, from 5 liberty haze plants. There was also somewhere around 85+grams of popcorn bud/fluffy airy bud/trim that I used for extracts and edibles. Anything that wasn't a nice dense hard bud got tossed into the latter pile.
1.) I've been curing since the chop. Around 60 days so far, And will continue curing. Was cured approximately 3 weeks at the time of this report.
have found that Liberty Haze takes at a minumum 75 days. Could have gone longer. Used 1000whps, yielded 2.3oz a plant. Excellent high. I find it soaring and then after awhile it just about knocks you down as mentioned in the review at the top. Good smoke, buds not very compact but that may have been because of the lack of light. Overall easy to grow.
Here's some pics of a 10 Liberty Haze grow that yielded 2.3 oz per plant under a 1000W hps. Definitly not enough light. Excellent medicine, takes you soaring but if you smoke to much you are going down into couchlock mode.
will grow forever smells like lemon fuel.shade leaves die but nugs not done.pics at 65 days.2 600w hps
all organic ,foxfarm soil and boibizz nutes,2 600w,5 gall pots,love,they didn't get too tall for sativa dom
well,i say that liberty haze is the worst strain ive ever had to deal with.it will never finish and now I just don't even care anymore.they say flowering time of 9 weeks and should be changed to "hundreds of days"its not stony and tastes nothing like it smells.in fact it tastes like nothing.worst stain ever.i can think of a bunch of better sativas with shorter flower times and better nug.let em go 90 days and still white hairs and clear frost.wasted sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much time and money.DO NOT BUY THIS STRAIN.
I ran these and got the same results and therefore have the same opinion. Also ran critical kush also sucked fuck barneys.
Here's my experience. Nine plants. Five(ish) phenotypes. Six hermies :finger:. Three turned purple (not expected) and were exceptionally weak. The non purple varieties had more frost but not exceptional. That said, there was one good one that didn't have balls. Very frosty, excellent hazey spicey smell. 65 days. It's dank and better than most in these parts but I've had better. Most people have found it a nice 'up' high but every now and then it will hit somebody wrong in a couch lock sorta way.Medium-high yield. Medium stretch.
The thing I will take away from Liberty is an abiding belief that this seed never should have been released in the first place. It needed to be stabilized. The smoke is fine but i expect better results in a seed, especially at premium prices. Sorry Barney's. I'll still hang a right at Central Station and come see you for breakfast though. But I will leave without seeds.
Edit: don't recall any problem with excessively long time to harvest.
Hey. I'm scrogging 3 under CFL (must be about 200-250W, at about 31 days flowering, looking good at the moment (for my setup) and all 3 look the same pheno at the moment.
They keep on growing though, even though theyr'e budding, which i think seems weird.
grew 2 barney farm liberty haze under ~500w cfl in a 2x2x4 cab
grew in ffof soil with 25% perlite added.
fertilized a few times with dyna gro foliage pro.
was given home brewed teas once a week during flower and straight rain water the other times.
both topped at 2nd node vegged about 30 days(showed preflowers)
both flowered at about 8 inches transplanted one to larger pot left other in smaller one.
larger pot finished at about 28 inches smaller about 24 inches.(have a small grow wanted to find out if pot size matters much)
harvested the bigger of the 2 plants at 65 days and the other at 80 days.
ended up with 5.5 ounces total off the 2 plants.
the one at 65 days was 2.5 ounces.(could of went another week or 10 days)
very compact chunky looking indica buds.(12 mains)
smell was of nasty roadkill/puke/musty as it was growing
still have about a 1/2 ounce left been curing about 6 months has pure moldy musky smell and taste a bit musky with taste of incense.
revegged this plant outdoors had a slight ph problem entering flowering flushed. ended up with another 2 ounces
the other at 80 days was 3 ounces and def the keeper.
very compact very fat colas bit more sativa.(2 mains)
smell while growing was on the sweeter/limey/musk.
also still have a 1/2 of this cured about 5 months. has very musk hint of lime smell. taste is of lime earthy incense.
cannot really comment much on stability(every one hates barneys) as plants were grown in different size pots so hard to compare apples and oranges.
the high of both were the same very up energentic euphoric high with no hint of couchlock. but def 2 different pheno's that is to be expected.
would def try barneys gear again.
a 1-10 is hard for me since where i live lots of schwag. very up high which i hold all other green to this standard.
i have grown out a g13 pineapple express since this grow and comparing the 2 i like the liberty better for the fact of absolutely no couch lock.
all honesty a 10 would be overdoing cause of my limited exposure to good green. but would give this an 8 because there has to be better out there.
as for the high itself very up high smoked in large amounts makes for a very spacey carefree attitude that keeps me motivated at any task at hand.
The Liberty is Amnesia Haze x Amnesia Lemon and it is a weed of overwhelming fruity/citric taste with a rather clear than trippy high but very strong. Truely a superior cut.
I also could smoke the Amnesia Haze in contrast. It's much more trippy and intense in the high, but not as fruity in taste as the Liberty. Also the Amnesia Haze was much more sticky and more than heavily coated in resin. As I smoked raw spliffs in Amsterdam I prefered the Liberty, because it was not that devastating to my mind as the AH or (even worse :mrgreen:) their Old School Haze.
Not to forget the belly blasting munchies You will get from the Liberty.
This strain is pure trash. Junk. Avoid it.
I've germinated and grown one 5-pack of BF LH seeds so far -- and what an incredible disappointment! Good cola development and plenty of pistils -- but NO calyx development at all! None! The bud is all dried pistils and air - just airy useless fluff - with no calyx's or trichomes to speak of. It tastes and smells just like yard grass, even after a careful curing. Yuck!
All seeds were first germinated (4 out of 5 germinated) and then put in rock wool blocks until good roots appeared. At that point they were put into our normal hydroponic pre-flower setup - pH neutral water with a bubbler, and 24-hour lights. Once the root ball was a good size (a couple of weeks) they were moved into a hydro flowering (12/12) setup for 12 more weeks. Top-shelf nutrients were provided at every stage of growth, and lights, temps, TDS and pH carefully controlled.
Yet the results were awful.
This plant tends to produce very few "normal" looking marijuana leaves - almost all the leaves on the plant are just a single large leaf - no lobes. No 7-leaf fans - just one big droopy leaf. I've had a few other strains like that before, and they were fine in the end. But these plants look weird with all big, single leaves like that.
I'm an experienced grower, and I've been growing an ever expanding variety of plants for years now - I know what I'm doing.
My only other experience with Barney's Farm seeds was with Super Lemon Haze. The first pack of SLH seeds I got ALL failed to germinate. All duds. The second pack only had 2 out of 5 seeds germinate.
Once I got a few SLH going it turned out to be a wonderful high, though the yields are *very* low compared to most other strains. Still, SLH has the biggest calyx's I have ever seen on any plant, and they are uber-densely packed with trichomes. And the buzz is to die for - no joke. Incredible. But it's not a big yielder.
So...I'm not so hot on Barney's Farm anymore. I've tried to germinate 15 of their seeds so far - and only got 2 plants out of it. One was great, in it's own way - the other is worse than ditchweed, IMHO.
Barney's Farm needs to work on their offerings and on their entire operation a while longer, I think. Pretty packaging can't make up for shipping dead seeds that simply won't ever germinate. And the weed they're winning Cannabis Cup contests with is very likely NOT anything like the weed you and I are apt to see growing from their seeds, for some reason, sad to say.
Had nothing but great success. Takes about 9 weeks and def has a great yield if you know what your doing. Let your plants veg for more than a couple weeks like some people on this thread and u will do fine
I averaged 270 per plant.. Not saying its one of my favorite strains by any means but I did get a good yield and it smoked decent, given a choice I would def choose other strains
The Liberty Haze I'm growing is dank for sure. Barney's advertises this as a 1 meter plant, while mine is more than double that...roof of greenhouse is 7 ft and had to lst severely to keep it under the 7ft. It's back finally broke under the stress. I was able to splint her back up without a prob. The buds have been super frosty from the beginning. Now at week 4 up close most green isn't very visible under the trichromes. Now I have new problem tho....any flying insect that lands on the budz gets instantly stuck...I notice them in the same spot after a few days and think their dead but when I pick them out with the tweezers I find them still alive. So it's like a flypaper plant! So maybe since the start of this thread a couple of years ago they stabilized this strain by more back crossing or other method. I'm glad I took a couple cuts from her before she started her flower on...
One of the higher priced buds but it was worth it for the quality.
Buds were super frosted with a relatively tight makeup as far as sativa goes. Bright lime green and orange/red hairs.
Notes of musk, rotten fruit, wood, haze, and foreign spice. Lots of G13 is present mixed in with some candy sweetness that you see in the Chem/OG/SD family.
Taste is butter haze, spicy wood ,dark fruit, and citrus zest.
High was bugging at first since this was the first smoke of the day but as we got used to her she mellowed a bit. Still very uppity with light paranoia which I tend to enjoy. :)
Good 2+ hours for this particular strain. Faded pretty clean also.
Another winner from the Barney’s crew. I scooped this at Amnesia which stocks a lot of the same stuff as the Barney locations. They also have maybe the best cut of Amnesia Haze in the city. Will be back!
I bought these seeds and, dont fuck with them.
Barney's farm seeds is a scam and sells shit mislabeled gentics.
I'm glad you found a cut worth smoking this looks alot better than the crap that grew from the pack of Barney's farms seeds I bought.
Honestly it makes me wonder if they even sell the same gentics online
Amen Mcdabbers. Barneys seeds suck. I was asked to grow out some of Barneys Seeds and give clones to a local spot. I looked for keeper phenos of liberty haze, violator kush and lsd. The liberty haze was a joke..I didn't see any g-13 or chem 91 in it, lsd has some funk to it but no potency…bog's lsd absolutely blows it away. The best I can say was Violator kush. It was a kush but the best mom was still pretty weak. The best seed company(s) in amsterdam are reserva pravada and dna but they just water down west coast genetics…I'm most impressed with Sin's gear as of late. The guy got cuts from progressive options, cloneville and obsoul then hit them with males from the best cali connect and karma gear. Great seeds, I'd recommend sin city seeds for sure
I have this now MGM and your review is spot on. This strain is powerful and very tasy. Mine is quite sticky too!
From: Private Grower
Loose fitting, G13 haze looking buds with lots of hairs and extended, tall crystals. Very sticky to the touch when broken.
Funky cheese, incense, melon, fuely chem, G13 haze, and lemon skins.
Flavor was earthy and sweet with the Chemdawg coming through nicely especially in aftertaste left on tongue.
Very clean sativa-forward high. Perfect smoke to get stuff done for a few hours without a care in the world.
2-3 hours. I was medicated nicely for 1.5 hours but didn’t need to smoke for at least another hour after that.
Overall, this was a nice sample of Liberty a friend traded me. It may have been dried too fast since it was a little light and airy and you can see a bean in the one picture so it must have been a little stressed or had hermie tendencies as well. Either way, Liberty Haze will keep you lifted for extended periods of time. –Meangreenmartian
liberty haze did surprise me as well. Bit weird on the taste but the buzz is very long!
These buds were dense, mossy, and covered in resin. The colors were dark and rich.
The smell that came through was primarily grape, leading me to believe that is part of the genetics. The smell also reminds me of G13.
The taste is similar to the smell but to a lesser extent. Perhaps that is because of the Haze, which comes through more in the flavor.
The buzz fit the hybrid lineage, that’s for sure. It relaxed my body but still made me want to be active. Not a couch locker and not too cerebral. It was a strong buzz.
This is a great strain from the Barneys Menu. The G13 smell reminds me of good times in Amsterdam. It’s not for your newbie, it’s a good poison that delivers. It has no ceiling and is very uplifting while still completely immersing you within the world of the Liberty Haze. –Bermuda
The effects an smell were really decent, but knock half a point off, for novelty an lack of flavour, an it still stands okay, although I havn't the experience to know what its like from start to finish.
Such a crap strain :/ I grew this ended up GIVING AWAY 2 ounces
Only bud plant I've ever grew that I wouldn't smoke, or even bother waisting time making oil with it
The only thing this strain has going for it is its very floaty introspective sativa high if ur into that
My liberty smelled of grass even after a month cure and the taste is like ur licking the floor of a really clean barn when made to oil.
And the Tric's! So small it looks like it had no trics unless you pull out the 420 scope , an I usally grow pretty good bud so I don't know what happened, I just checked it off as another Barney's farm (seed bank) skrew over (happens alot with Barney's farm)
The buzz on liberty is acually quite strong nothing special tho
Maybe for some one who wants to smoke it and sit on a grassy hill and stare at clouds all day
Liberty Haze has a sweet, Juice Fruit, smell as the buds grow. The final product has large white crystals bursting out everywhere where the hairs turn into a dark brown with an almost a red hue that becomes abundant in the final week of flowing. The biggest bud wighted out at 3.2 grams with many others just coming in at just over 2 grams. The smell is not overpowering when growing or after harvest, but the high was not lacking. It was a nice balanced high between both the body and mind.
My first attempt growing MMJ for my wife. This is just a little sample piece I pulled to test before I cut and this is some Kill Ahh stuff! Totally knocked her Pain & Nausea out, but also provided her with a "Super Uplifting Happy High" that allowed her to do things she hadn't done in a year from Chemo. The only major drawback is the big-time dry mouth and it caused me to eat an entire box of chocolate-chip cookies (first time smoker). We were both slammed for a few hours and slept hard that night without Ambien. I will grow again..!
I grew that strain and it was amazing yeild and flowering time... but most of all taste! Enjoy!
I have 4 plants of Liberty Haze in my grow room right now just waiting to finish up and by FAR these will be my best grow ever. HUGE buds bigger than my fist and going to be monster yeilds! CAN'T WAIT!!
I bought only 2 beans and both popped:)they seemed slow to me to start with but that changed for me in first week of 12_12 sshe is a monster and looks lush nice dark green leave's can't wait to see some bud not sure how long flowering take coz the info aint out yet :s topped one and she didn't like that bout a week later she kicked the bucket,lucky the other looks great,don't know much about the strain and any info is handy
Ive grown out liberty and tangerene dream, total pish, the genetics at barneys are crap IME to say the least, to much variation and you need 20-30 seeds to find a half decent pheno, libery haze is my fave all time smoke (from the coffeeshop) but having grown barneys strains before i wont be doing them again, or GHS for that matter and i know Arjen personaly and have told him peoples views in the UK on his genetics, he does not seem bothered.
Run all your seeds and get rid of any that arent flowering after 14 days of 12/12. There are some long flowerin lh phenos out there. I have a fast flowering lh pheno that is close to finishing, im at day 57. Got her on 10/14 and sunpulse 10k mh uva finishing bulbs and straight water. Smells like limes.
I got 5 seeds and started one and gave two to a friend. He has two phenotypes, one short and bushy and one tall with lots of stem. Mine is the tall phenotype. She is the stretchest plant I've ever grown. She is about a month in bloom now. She is in a two gallon grow gag of Fox Farms Ocean and Forest with about 20% Happy Frog and 30% of the total mix is pearlite. She is under a Inda-gro Pro 200 PAR induction growlight.
I'm growing libery haze and I think if anyone stresses the branches on this one they are going to see that this strain loves to be stressed. I have one that has six main braches that split off 7 inches above the dirt, each branch is 4 ft tall, each with there one branches that are 2 ft long. Down side is having to tie them up because the bigger the plant gets the smaller the branches become. So they need support but they are very explosive when stressed
great plant. 2.3oz per plant. Buds not dense but not too light either. Fruity lemony smoke. High is off the charts! Takes you up and up and eventually will slam you down if you use too much medicine.
...great selection if u like high thc +high yeilds u will like this one
