Colorado Seed Inc has created a strain that is evenly mysterious, rare and great. Silver back cannabis has some mutated Hawaiian genetics. These plants give tiny harvest so very hard to find, but hunters for unique strains sometimes manage to.

The 60/40 Indica-dominant hybrid based Siver back weed strain is quite potent and requires well-experienced consumers. It has a sweet and spicy terpene profile with grape and earth flavors.

The best time for using Silver Back strain would be in the evening due to its calming and sedative effects. Consumers admit the first boost of mood and happiness along with creativity and socializing lift, but not for long. As time comes by, the body becomes more relaxed and sedated. People use this weed for medical purposes to control sleep issues, stress, fatigue, pains, nausea, and appetite loss.

The news for breeders is no good. It is hard to find Silver Back strain on the market and find seeds close to impossible.

Personally, I love this ganja and I take it at different times of the day. It has a tropical taste and the vaporizer effects come quick! I always feel euphoric after and when the effects wear off, I have an excuse to eat all I want.
