Known also as SS Haze or SSH strain, this is a Sativa-dominant hybrid plant with royal relatives – Skunk 1 and Northern Lights 5, with a bit of Haze C. Super Silver Haze THC level varies from 18% to 20%, depending on the growing conditions. This powerful combination in one crossbreed has formed a great phenotype in which both medical and physical qualities are unmatched in other Sativa-leaning breeds.

Absolutely feel you Rosalie Guerriero, was hoping that I would succesfuly grow my stash indoors but turns out the lighting crippled my elec bill. next round did them outdoors and what a yield I got. Now I only plant them outdoors and I am happy.

Super Silver Haze Strain Information

Bred by the famous Green House Seeds farming company, and particularly – Neville Schoenmaker and Shantibaba in the 90s, it won a Sativa nomination at the Cannabis contest 1997 through 1999. At first, it was the outdoor plant only, but After Shantibaba moved to Mr. Nice Seedbank company, he developed the indoor version of the strain, which, surprisingly, was able to yield more than the original one in the hydroponic setup and within 1-2 weeks less time. There are two types of seeds for this strain: CBD Super Silver Haze feminized seeds and Super Silver Haze feminized seeds.

Originated from crossbreeding Skunk #1, Northern Lights #5, and Haze C (Skunk #1 +Haze C, Northern Lights #5 + Haze C), it features up to 50% of qualities found in Haze C, up to 25% of Skunk #1 and up to 25% of NL. This gives Super Silver Haze strain potent energizing qualities the Sativas have with the relaxing aftermath of Indica.

Super Silver Haze Strain Effects

Consumers who have tried Super Silver Haze weed strain report such effects to be the most common:

The most widespread states that this herb can cure concerns psychological states rather than physical ones. Due to its lightning-fast effect that can be kept for a pretty long time, it’s said to be effective to treat:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines
  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue

In addition, Super Silver Haze strain THC level range (18-20%), 0.44 - 0.67%% of CBD, and 0.08 - 0.18% of CBN form a perfect treatment for the bad mood, sudden fear and panic attacks, ADHD syndrome, and simply to make your day bright.

Negative Effects of Being High on SS Haze may include:

  • Cottonmouth & dry eyes
  • Dizzy
  • Anxious
  • Paranoid

Smell and Taste

For those who like sweet, candy-like flavor and smell, we have bad news: this phenotype has nothing to do with it. On the contrary, the buds have pleasant spicy, skunk and diesel-like aroma with distinctive pine and citrus notes.

It’s a pretty creamy, smooth taste with a bitterness in the aftertaste that the typical weed plants have. You can also notice the citrus-pine-eucalyptus combination that is inherent to all Haze groups.

Opinion by Growers

The fact that it gives a lot of harvest from the square meter (+-450-550 grams), ability to grow in the greenhouses, and the quality of the plant, makes this type a staple of major pot factories. Super Silver Haze strain is also used for crossbreeding and further phenotype inventions.

One of the few things to know about harvesting SS Haze is that the herbs, just like all Sativa plants, grow pretty tall, so you should bear that in mind when choosing to grow the crop indoors so it doesn’t cause squashing. In terms of nugs, they are grown bigger if planted outdoors in the warm and moderate-to-high humid climate, while planted indoors, the flower buds tend to be smaller in size.

Money-wise, the indoor cultivation of this strain requires more resources than other Sativa-dominant counterparts as you’ll have to make artificial conditions close to the equatorial climate, which requires some solid investment.

On the bright side of indoors Super Silver Haze grows, it yields more when cultivated in the greenhouses. It requires reasonably low maintenance because it’s naturally stable to different kinds of insects and plant diseases.

Regarding Super Silver Haze flowering time, it takes longer than other Sativa relatives and hybrids (9-11 weeks against usual 7-8). The planting type also plays a vital role in growing the culture as it will bloom sooner indoors rather than outdoors. It can be vegetated by planting seeds or cloning, and both options are easily reachable.


Just like any other weed, you should do it with love and affection. You can grow it outdoors if your location allows or indoor if you can create favorable conditions. If preparing a place for indoor cropping, always build the room with high ceilings as the plants are high in this regard too. Also, don’t place them close to each other so they don’t overshade each other or steal vital elements from the soil.
You can harvest your crop in 9-11 weeks after you planted it, though you should always consider how it looks and if it’s ready to be harvested. Don’t forget to leave a few bushes to grow past the harvesting time to see the glorious silver-to-gray sheen and make it a special treat for loyal clients.

Apart from some pretty bad dry mouth i think that SSH is one of the best strains we have.

took a whole 10 weeks to grow from planting to harvest. Now, this wouldn't have shocked me at all byt I was thinking that Sativas usually take a shorter time. Miss me with that waiting period. I want me some fast growing babies.

Don't plant indoors, lighting will cost you an arm and a leg.

This strain is a bit difficult for beginners. it requires special attention especially when it comes to the lighting and maintenance. For one you have to constantly prune the leaves and make sure the light is sufficient. its upside is if you put in the work it rewards yyou with GINORMOUS nugs.

DESPISE sativa dominant hybrids, i get that there are stoners that have high tolerance and can take even 20% of THC but what about the beginners who fancy some SSH strain. Anyway, I guess Ill just settle for something else with no loyal weedline.

Decent taste, quick high and happy/peaceful feeling. Doesn’t get you drowsy but creates dry mouth. Happy to smoke this strain.

It’s pretty good and the taste was yummy. Tho at first, I felt talkative and euphoric, after some time it gave me a bit of dizziness. But it’s not the top shelf for me

For me, SSH is in the top 3 strains for social activities. When I first tried it, I was just overwhelmed with that pleasant feeling of serenity that made my anxiety and concerns melt in a few minutes. What surprised me the most is that I even became much

I enjoy SSH. It emits a skunky, diesel-like aroma, while the taste is sweet and citrusy with a light bitter aftertaste. Maybe it’s a bit particular, but it made my head light as a feather, though I still could focus on some important stuff. Don’t underest
