Super Silver Haze, bred by Green House Seeds, was the first prize winner at the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998, and 1999. Crossing genetics of Skunk northern Light, and Haze creates a beautiful, sticky sativa 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
A classic commercial “Sativa” strain, Silver Haze originates with breeders Scott Blakey (AKA Shantibaba), Howard Marks (AKA Mr. Nice), and Neville Schoenmaker, who retooled their Super Silver Haze strain — a hybrid of Skunk x Northern Lights x Haze — and called it Silver Haze when they left Greenhouse Seed Company. Today’s Silver Haze is a hybrid of Northern Lights #5 x Haze, bred by Sensi Seeds in Amsterdam, and sold as both feminized and non-feminized seeds.
The original Haze was an early hybrid that could only be grown outdoors, due to its minimal yield and unmanageable height-gain. Crossing the unruly Haze with the Afghani Indica Northern Lights #5 stabilizes the growth patterns of Silver Haze for high yields in a controlled, indoor growing environment. Growers can still expect significant, albeit manageable, height-gain from Silver Haze during its relatively long 65-75 day flowering period. Near the end of flowering, Silver Haze’s buds grow dense — packed with frosty, silver trichomes and long, flowing orange hairs.
Silver Haze won the bronze for Best Sativa in the 2005 High Times Cannabis Cup while its closest relative, Super Silver Haze, has won countless awards. Silver Haze is considered one of the most potent “Sativa” strains on the market. Its effects are frequently reported as heavily cerebral, uplifting, and energizing.
Providing powerful euphoric effects within moments of use, it elevates moods and causes users to feel rather happy. Artistic types will find their medium calling to them, fueling a need to create. Many will also feel a rise in energy that makes them want to get outside and do something. The mint tinted piney taste will be accompanied by cotton mouth and dry eyes. Occasionally users may experience dizziness, paranoia and headaches.
