Super silver haze is a Sativa-dominant hybrid from the Green House Seed Company in Amsterdam. Its name once belonged to a plant from breeders Scott Blakey, alias Shantibaba; Howard Marks, alias Mr. Nice; and Neville Schoenmaker, who restructured the strain and named it Silver Haze after leaving the seed company. Skunk, Northern Lights and Haze strains combine forces to give the Super Silver strain star-studded genetics.
It is a Sativa-dominant hybrid that has become one of the pillars of superior cannabis since its launch in the 90s. Also known as the SS Haze or SSH strain, this is a Sativa-dominant hybrid plant with real relatives: Skunk 1 and Northern Lights 5, with a little Haze C. Super Silver Haze THC ranges from 18% to 20%, depending on growing conditions. This powerful combination in a cross has formed a great phenotype in which the medical and physical qualities are unmatched by other Sativa-leaning breeds.
Known for being the queen of all Sativas in the 1990s, Super Silver Haze has won many awards from several Cannabis Cups over the years. Carefully bred by Shantibaba and Neville (two well-known breeders), the development of this strain began when Shantibaba was at Greenhouse Seeds in the early 90s.
