Strain InformationSativa Dominant Hybrid – 80% Sativa / 20% Indica. THC: 23%
Super Silver Haze is a Sativa dominant strain with an 80:20 sativa/indica ratio. What really sets this strain apart from the rest is that it is quite fat with medium foresty-greens with unique brownish-orange leaves. It is as tempting as it looks and is extremely delicious with its fruity and sweet aroma. However, unlike other strains you do not have to worry about it leaving a bad aftertaste. It tastes incredibly smooth and sweet and is creamy like peaches. After smoking the strain you will come to realize it is quite strong and creates body-oriented buzzes instead. However, these buzzes are sleep-inducing and relaxing which is why you should not expect them to wake you up or energize you. But then again it offers a lot more and is a complete package as it lasts longer than the usual strains you are accustomed to. Moreover, it is also the perfect remedy for a number of different medical conditions. It can help you overcome anything from muscle cramps to depression. Additionally, its lasting effects allow you to achieve relief for longer periods of time. So if you are suffering from chronic pain, Super Silver Haze will do more than just tone it down for you.
Known for being the king of all Sativas in the 1990’s, Super Silver Haze has taken home many awards from various Cannabis Cups throughout the years. Carefully bred by Shantibaba and Neville (two well known breeders), the development of this stain began while Shantibaba was at Greenhouse seeds in the very early 90’s. They have continued to cultivate Super Silver Haze at the Mr. Nice Seedbank ever since. It’s become a favorite for medical and recreational consumers alike, regularly being offered in dispensaries throughout the west coast. It is composed of about half Original Haze, a quarter Northern Lights #5 and a quarter Skunk #1. Tasting of spice, skunk and citrus, Super Silver Haze can deliver powerful psychoactive and physical effects.
A strain that can make users want to get on their feet, it lacks focus but can be very profound and thought provoking. Motivating as it can be, Super Silver Haze shifts gears during the second half of its long lasting high and begins to soothe the body. Users may experience a brightening of colors and sharpening of sounds. For most users the strain can be effective daytime medication for fatigue, mood disorders, nausea and migraines. Some users may find the bodily effects heavier than others but it may alleviate chronic aches and pains.
Super Silver Haze does her best when grown in a hydroponics setup but don’t let that stop you from growing it in soil or outside, the Mr. Nice version can be grown in a green house. The Greenhouse seeds version can take longer, up to 11 weeks to grow, than the required eight to ten weeks for the version offered at Mr. Nice. The trade off is reportedly higher yields of up to 800 grams indoor or 1500 grams per plant outside, compared to harvests of 450 to 550 grams. Not for those just starting a grow for the first time, Super Silver Haze can do well with the SCROG and LST methods of growing.
