Super Silver Haze is a super hybrid Sativa Dominant strain with a ratio of 80:20 of sativa to indica. This complex hybrid is a combination of Stunk, Northern Light, and Haze marijuana strains with a THC concentration of up to 23%.
The Super Silver Haze strain became popular at the fall of 20th Century, when it won the HIGH TIMES Cannabis Cup three years in a raw (1997, 1998, and 1999). The general features of the Super Silver Haze strain match its name as its seeds tend to make plants that are covered in silvery THC glands that glow on sight. It is best grown indoors, producing colas that get pointed on top when mature and are more open than compact.
Its buds are long and sticky, hairy and dense and often times the plants can get relatively tall and may become unwieldy to work with. It sometimes appears as a medium forest green with bunches of brownish orange pistils. However, with patience, you can limit vegetative growth so that they don’t get out of hand.
For the growers and breeders of medical marijuana, the beauty about this strain is that it is generally considered to be resistant to mold. Within 9 to 12 weeks, the plant flowers and will produce 21 ounces of weed per 10 square feet of plants.
The smell of Super Silver Haze varies greatly depending on which phenotype you have although most often, it is a combination of the floral Haze with the sweetness of the Skunk and deep Afghani undertones from the Northern Lights.
The flavor is pungent and spicy with an earthy haze and undertones of fruity skunk. When it comes to the taste, it is incredibly smooth and sweet with creamy like peaches.
