Super silver haze strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid from Amsterdam’s Green House Seed Company.
Its name once belonged to a plant from breeders Scott Blakey, aka Shantibaba; Howard Marks, aka Mr. Nice; and Neville Schoenmaker, who retooled the strain and called it Silver Haze after leaving the seed company.
Green House reports the current version of the strain is the result of crossing Shiva with Northern Lights #5, donated by breeder Sam the Skunkman. The strain earned three successive 1st Place Awards at High Times’ Cannabis Cup — 1st Hydro in 1998, and 1st Place overall in 1998 and 1999.
The seed company reports the strain has an instantly recognizable, spicy-peppery terpene profile and a strong, fast-acting Sativa-like effect. It tested at 19.11% THC, 0.17% CBD and 0.74% CBN. It’s recommended for treating pain and stimulating appetite.
About Super silver haze strain
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 strain 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.
Considered one of the highest quality sativas in the world of marijuana, it’s pretty safe to say that Super Silver Haze has not gone unnoticed – especially considering that it was awarded first prize at the High Time Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998 and 1999.
This three-year-in-a-row champion is still famous, and still highly admired 20 years later – proving that the scientists over at Green House Seeds truly bred an iconic and legendary marijuana strain that has left a massive impact and is still continuing to make waves.
