Super Silver Haze strain is a sativa marijuana strain bred by Green House Seeds. It was the first prize winner at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998, and 1999. Super Silver Haze is made by crossing Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze creates a beautiful, sticky strain that boasts an energetic, long-lasting body high. The uplifting effects are a great for high stress levels or when suffering from a lack of appetite or nausea.
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.
