Silver Haze strain review - Everything You Need to Know & More!

This strain is NOT Super Silver Haze. It’s very similar and is related, but they’re not exactly the same. Silver Haze is slightly less citrusy but has similar effects. It’s a sativa-dominant hybrid which most people consider to be a pure sativa or an almost pure sativa. It was created by Sensi Seeds in Amsterdam and has a great sweet, citrus taste. Some people know this strain as Silver Haze Kush in some parts. Too much Silver Haze may make you feel light headed but the perfect amount is a great stress-buster.

Silver Haze review

Silver Haze is a cross between Northern Lights and Haze, with a strong sativa high. Silver Haze is not as well-known or as prevalent as Super Silver Haze, which was also crossed with Skunk No. 1. Silver Haze is a very popular strain in Amsterdam, and was created over in the Netherlands area. Sensi Seeds, one of the best and most well-known seedbanks in the entire world, created this strain. It is known as Silver Haze because of the coating of shiny silver crystals which cover the sativa-shaped buds.  

 

How much does it cost?

Good news! Silver Haze isn't actually that expensive. That's because it's a very popular Dutch strain. You will find Silver Haze or Super Silver Haze in a lot of coffeeshops over in Amsterdam, and it costs about £8 per g. Obviously some coffee shops are more expensive, but there are some coffeeshops (like Coffee Shop Centraal) which sells high quality weed at under £10 a gram.  

 

Silver Haze THC levels

This strain often tests at around 20-24%. This means that it's potent. It definitely packs a strong cerebral high, and too much of this strain could make your mind race. If so, just either lie down or take a cold shower and you'll feel right as rain in no time.



Silver Haze Lineage

Haze Strain

The illustrious Haze sativa first took root in Santa Cruz, California during the 1960s where long growing seasons accommodated her lengthy flowering cycle. Since then, Haze has become the proud parent of countless hybrids around the globe, passing on its genetics from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand, and South India.

 

Northern Lights

Northern Lights is an incredibly well known and loved strain. It's a pure indica, created from the indica landraces, and has a sweet taste which it passes onto Silver Haze.

Silver Haze taste

  • Earthy
  • Pungent
  • Sweet
  • Citrus

This strain definitely isn't quite as tasty as Super Silver Haze, as its missing a part of the citrus which makes SSH such an accomplished strain. However, Silver Haze does still taste pretty good, particularly in a flower vape, which picks up subtle tastes much better than when you're purely burning the plant.

Can you get Silver Haze in oil, vape, wax or edibles?

Yes. You can get any strain in any format, if you make it yourself. On the other hand, if you're buying it from a shop, your best bet is an Amsterdam coffeeshop. Although, they can't really sell concentrates and oils so they sell edibles. A lot of them make edibles with various strains, including Silver Haze. You're very unlikely, although not completely impossible, to come across this strain in a dispensary in California in shatter/wax format. Although, some people make it themselves.

Sativa strains are good for a number of different things, and Silver Haze definitely helps with something like stress, depression, reducing anxiety etc. It also has many recreational uses, such as staying active and productive, relaxing, smoking after a long day at work, smoking before work and much more! 

 

Silver Haze Yield

Silver Haze can be grown indoors and outdoors, with indoor yields at 14 ounces per square meter, taking approximately 10 weeks to grow. Outdoors each plant will grow around 13 ounces, and as you can see in the video below, the plants are absolutely covered in crystals.

 

Growing tips

Silver Haze seeds are available from the Sensi Seeds official website. The Dutch seed banks are always high-quality, and you know that what you're buying is exactly what you think it is.

As it's a pure Sativa (almost) it can vegetate and flower at the same time. It grows taller quickly, and is a powerful grower. It responds well to being in close proximity to other plants. Silver Haze responds well to bending and super-cropping.

 

 

Silver Haze Overview: 

Overall, Silver Haze is a sativa-dominent cross between Northern Lights and Haze. IT is an 80/20 sativa to indica ratio with a wonderful landrace lineage. Silver Haze comes from the Netherlands where a Dutch seed company, Sensi Seeds, created the strain. Her name comes from the silver crystals that cover the whole plant and offers upwards of 23% THC.
