Super Silver Haze

Super Silver Haze (sometimes shortened to SSH) was born through the careful and strategic cross-breeding of Northern Lights, Haze, and Skunk #1, three of the highest quality strains on earth. Looking at its genetic lineage, it’s no question how Super Silver Haze rose to be a highly sought-after and award-winning strain itself.

Super Silver Haze is a sativa-dominant strain with a ratio of 70:30 between sativa and indica. This balance of sativa to indica makes Super Silver Haze a popular strain for use during the day as it has uplifting and energizing effects. These effects make SSH helpful for managing anxiety and depression when used in low doses.

The tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels of Super Silver Haze are moderate at 20% on average, with cannabidiol (CBD) levels almost nonexistent at less than 0.2%

Dosing

Growing

growing strains

Growing Super Silver Haze requires some experience and is not suitable for novice growers, especially those wanting their plant to reach its full potential. As is typical with most other sativa strains, expect Super Silver Haze to produce tall plants and provide ample room to avoid overcrowding.
Super Silver Haze thrives best in hydroponic growing conditions but can also be grown in soil. If everything goes to plan while growing, successful indoor harvests yield around 19 ounces per square meter, and outdoor yields 15 ounces per plant.

Height

Super Silver Haze can easily grow to be over 6.5 ft tall.

Humidity and Temperature

Super Silver Haze requires a hot, sunny, and balmy climate, which restricts the geographical locations suitable for outdoor growth. Mediterranean and tropical climates are ideal for this cultivar.
Retain relative humidity between 65-80% when your plants sprout as seedlings. In the vegetative stage, slightly lower down to between 60-70%. In the flowering stage, humidity should be between 30% and 40% to prevent mold from growing on your flower.

Flowering

Super Silver Haze flowers within 10-12 weeks when grown indoors. These plants are ready for harvest in mid-October when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere.
