General Information

Type:  Sativa-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  (Skunk #1 x Haze C) x (Northern Lights #5 x Haze C) , making it 50% Haze, 25% Skunk #1, 25% Northern Lights #5

Geographic Origin:  Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Seed Company/Clone: Green House Seeds and Mr. Nice Seeds (Shantibaba was the original breeder along with Neville Shoenmaker, and left Green House to form Mr. Nice Seeds)

Description: Perhaps the most award-winning strain ever created, Super Silver Haze was the prized brainchild of renowned Green House breeder Shantibaba.  A fusion of 2 of the most desirable commercial strains (Skunk #1 and Northern Lights #5) and the racy and rangy Haze C, SSH is considered by many to be the perfect Sativa-dominant hybrid, combining the best in mental and physical effects.  The addition of the Skunk and NL keep the flowering times and size manageable for indoor growth, making the normally-equatorial Haze feasible for indoor growing.


Story: This forum post has a wealth of history about Haze as a lineage, starting with the “Haze Brothers” and moving through the Shantibaba/Neville Shoenmaker days, when Super Silver Haze and its sister Mango Haze were created.

Awards: 1st Prize in 1997, 1998, and 1999 High times Cannabis Cup

Growing Information

Flowering Time: Up to 75 days for certain phenotypes, but normally in the 8-10 weeks area thanks to the Skunk and Northern Lights #5 influence

Preferred Growing Medium: Works well in soil or hydro, indoors or out — the definition of hybrid vigor.  It produces above-average yields as well, Mr. Nice’s website says 450-550 g per square meter.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Pine, menthol, and sour citrus are the main smells with this variety — some can get more towards the flowery Haze side of the spectrum as well.

Flavor: Citrus-pine Haze with some eucalyptus notes.

Effects: Energetic and a little racy immediately, it fills the head with a variety of cycling pressure and a buzzing but at times misguided energy.  It’s one of those that gets you out of your seat and looking for something to do, but often results in meandering and lots of random activities rather than anything focused.  At times increasing visual and auditory sharpness, this strain is great for creative types as well.  As it progresses, the Skunk and NL influences come into play, making it more of a relaxing experience over the second half of the duration, including some quality body relaxation and pain relief.  Recommended as a daytime or early evening med primarily, it has great energetic, ocular, motivating, creative, appetite stimulation, and mood-elevating properties.
