During the nineties a bold experiment, that bore a powerful and impressive strain of cannabis, dared to combine three archetypal strains of marijuana. Haze, Northern Lights #5 and Skunk #1. Each an intoxicating example in themselves of expert marijuana breeding.
Super Silver Haze has a psychedelic double dipping of strong tropical sativas in its genealogy. There is also a noticeable influence of the Afghan indica in her story. Certainly sativa-dominant, Super Silver Haze is one the most indica influenced of the Hazes in maturing time, internode distance and bud compactness.
21% THC makes Super Silver Haze a favourite for making hash and extracts. The leaves are so well covered in trichomes, that trimming them is purely for commercial aesthetics. So, even the trim makes A-grade hash providing plenty of available essential oils and rich cannabinoids.
Super silver haze is known to have a powerful, sweet, and somewhat spicy aroma. The sweet skunk smell combined with the earthy haze and stark Afghani scents from the Northern Lights all combine magically together. It tastes pretty much the way it smells, fantastic! With its bold yet sweet-tasting smoke, it’s no surprise why this is a very popular strain.
The buzz from Super Silver Haze is a functioning, daytime high. You’ll be full of energy, but still feel peaceful, centred, and clear-headed. It’s the perfect type of strain for a nice wake and bake session. Not to mention, Super Silver Haze is great for treating headaches/migraines, and anxiety.
Outdoors: If you have unlimited root space or maximum sized grow bags, make sure you have plenty of room, because Super Silver Haze will boom if given the opportunity. Properly topped and trained, a three metre diameter ball of dense vegetation can be created ready for autumn and flowering.
A ladder will need to be added to any growers hardware list if going to grow Super Silver Haze outdoors. The sativa-dominant genetic wants to stretch and stretch some more and can double its height and volume during the flowering phase. It is exciting in the early weeks of flowering, as the plant differentiates and it can be seen how many flower sites there are going to be.
Beguiling scents are produced immediately when flowers start to appear. That first full moon flush of calyx puffballs add the distinctive Haze citrus flavour to the morning air. After nine or maybe eleven weeks, support cages, stakes and ties will be pushed to their limits to support resin drenched clusters of dense cannabis flowers.
Indoors: Hungry, but fickle Super Silver Haze will respond to fertilization with sturdy, thriving growth, but don’t be fooled into thinking you can accelerate things by feeding it more. It will all go bad overnight and you will wake to find heartbreaking bright yellow toxicity.
The want of the sativa to go tall can be used by the artful scrogger to make a magic silver carpet of thick flowers two metres in diameter. Denying the plant a central cola makes it put equal effort into all the flowers. This way you can be rewarded with over 800g/m² of homogeneous well-sized flower spindles varnished with silver candy floss.
If you are being stealthy, you will have to pay particular attention to smell control. Aficionados will inhale deeply and smile a knowing, appreciative smile and cruise on by. Trolls will just bring down the heat so get those carbon filters cranking and don’t wear your gardening clothes in public. You will certainly reek of eau de marijuana and might as well have a sign around your neck that says – Clandestine Dope Grower.
If this strain were an automobile, it would now be vintage. Like many vintage things it can be considered a classic. Super Silver Haze may even have transcended classic and become legend. A revelatory example of the cannabis breeders’ art, this strain has remained popular and still directly wins cups to this day or is a parent of cup winners.
