Eventually, the cultivators at Amsterdam’s Green House Seeds took 50 percent Haze and mixed it with two other strains: the indica Northern Lights and the hybrid Skunk No. 1. Released in the mid-90s under the name Super Silver Haze, this hybrid was an instant hit with customers and critics. As of today, Super Silver Haze is the only strain to win three consecutive Cannabis Cups between 1997 and 1999.
Average grow time for Super Silver Haze is between 9 – 11 weeks. That’s significantly shorter than most sativa hybrids, some of which take a whole five months to reach maturity.
Super Silver Haze usually has a sativa to indica ratio of roughly 80:20, but the indica part of this strain plays a crucial role in both the high effect and growth cycle. Interestingly, many people describe Super Silver Haze as an “indica amongst sativas” for this very reason.

Yes, the high produced by Super Silver Haze is all you’d expect from a sativa: euphoric and energizing. THC content is usually pegged at 19 percent with less than 1 percent CBD and CBN. However, the indica element helps produce a unique calming sensation that can be felt throughout the body. Users often describe tingling and a sense of relaxation after inhaling Super Silver Haze.
One of the most influential hybrids made with Super Silver Haze is known as Super Lemon Haze. Also created at Amsterdam’s Green House Seeds, this blend of Super Silver Haze and Lemon Skunk has already won two Cannabis Cups of its own between 2008 and 2009. Unlike Super Silver Haze, the energizing effects of Super Lemon Haze are far more pronounced and can be deleterious for people with conditions like anxiety, panic attacks, or insomnia. THC content can get upwards of 25 percent, so this is definitely not for the faint of heart.
Turning to the effects, Super Silver Haze has a typical Haze high. Users generally report feeling uplifted and euphoric after taking a hit of Super Silver Haze. The euphoria here, however, isn’t likely to make you feel all tensed up and jittery. Thanks to the indica effects of Northern Lights, Super Silver Haze provides a bit of mellowing action to help you feel clear headed and calm.
Average CBD: 1 percent
While Super Silver Haze might be more forgiving than other sativas, you need to keep an eye on its nutrition and environment. This strain enjoys warmth and humidity, so be sure the temp is set between 70-80ºF (21-27ºC). While most growers see the best results growing indoors, it’s possible to grow Super Silver Haze outdoors (especially in tropical climates). Growers in the Northern Hemisphere can expect harvest times in mid-October, while Southern Hemisphere breeders can harvest in mid-April.
