Super Silver Haze is an award-winning strain created in the early 90s by Green House Seeds and, like its close relative Jack Herer, is a mix of Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze genetics. Floral, sweet, and spicy, this sativa-dominant hybrid is highly prized for its ability to motivate and energize. Some may find that Super Silver Haze aids in easing pain and migraines. It's an enduring favorite of both recreational and medicinal users and is readily available in dispensaries.

  • Indoor flowering time: 70-77 days
  • Indoor yield: Up to 800 g/m2
  • Outdoor yield: Up to 1500 g/plant
  • Harvest time: (Outdoor/Greenhouse) Mid October

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.

Flowering indoor: 10-11 weeks with yield up to 800 g/m2. Flowering Outdoor: harvest in mid October in the Northern hemisphere, in mid May in the Southern. Yield up to 1500 g/plant.

The Super Silver Haze strain really rose to fame at the end of the 20th Century, when it won the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup three years in a row. The strain was under the care of Green House Seeds at that point, but the company’s co-founders split soon thereafter.

Additional Information

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.

The flavors of Super Silver Haze blend into a one-of-a-kind sweet, skunky, spicy melange that is well known to lift spirits while calming the body. High combines with stone, relaxation with stimulation, and every subsequent hybrid crossed with Super Silver Haze seems to retain a little bit of this Dutch breeding magic. If ever a marijuana strain was perfect for delivering a complete head-to-toe stoney buzz, Super Silver Haze just might be the one.

The Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze strains combine forces to give the Super Silver strain star-studded genetics. It is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that has become one of the building blocks for superior cannabis since it was released in the 90′s.
