Known also as SS Haze, this is a Sativa 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.

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 Super Silver Haze Strain, which, surprisingly, was able to yield more than the original one in the hydroponic setup and within 1-2 weeks less time.

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 the herb potent energizing qualities the Sativas have with the relaxing aftermath of Indica.

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 cannabis 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. It 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.

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

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.
