How To Choose The Right Lighting For Your Marijuana Grow Room

In the nineties, an ambitious marijuana experiment combined three iconic strains: Haze, Northern Lights #5, and Skunk #1.

The goal was to create a super-potent, super-fragrant strain that would satisfy even the most demanding cannabis connoisseurs.

The result was super silver haze: a deliciously hazy hybrid with an intoxicating aroma of sweet citrus and skunk. This potent powerhouse packs a serious punch, with THC levels regularly testing

Classic marijuana breeding is evident in each piece of genetics that goes into Super Silver Haze.

Super Silver Haze is a Sativa-dominant hybrid with strong psychedelic properties. It gets its genes from two other tropical sativas.

The Afghan indica also plays a role in her story. Though mostly Sativa, Super Silver Haze grows more like an indica with shorter internode distance and bushier buds. It also matures faster than most Hazes.

With 21% THC, Super Silver Haze is a favorite for hash and extract makers. The leaves are so well covered in trichomes that trimming them is purely for commercial aesthetics. So, even the trim makes A-grade hash providing plenty of available essential oils and rich cannabinoids.

What are the effects of super silver haze cannabis strain

Super silver haze is known for its potent, sweet, and slightly spicy aroma. The delicate skunk smell mingles with the earthy haze and sharp Afghani scents from the Northern Lights to create a magical atmosphere.

The taste profile matches the smell, both being phenomenal. The smoke is rich and sweet, which explains why this strain is so popular.

The effects of Super Silver Haze are perfect for a daytime high where you’ll feel energetic, but still peaceful and clear-minded. This strain is ideal for a leisurely wake-and-bake session.

How to grow super silver haze cannabis strain

If you have ample root space outdoors or use maximum-sized grow bags, Super Silver Haze will thrive given the chance to grow.

If you want to grow Super Silver Haze outdoors, you’ll need to add a ladder to your list of supplies. This Sativa-dominant strain can easily double its height and volume during the flowering phase.

The early weeks of flowering are always exciting as the plant differentiates and reveals how many flower sites there will be.

Immediately upon the blossoming of flowers, their enchanting aroma graces the air. For example, that first full moon flush of calyx puffballs emits a citrus flavor reminiscent of haze. After approximately two and a half months, the support cages, stakes, and ties holding up the resin-drenched cannabis flowers will be pushed to their limits.

Super Silver Haze is a delicate plant that should be fertilized with care. Over-fertilization will result in bright yellow toxicity and stunted growth.

The Sativa’s desire to grow tall can be harnessed by a clever scrogg to create a beautiful silver carpet of thick flowers up to 7 feet in diameter.

By removing the main cola, the plant will use its energy to create homogeneous and well-sized flower spindles that are covered in silver candy floss. This results in over 800g/m² of flowers. Just a bit, eh?

Keep in mind that if you’re trying to be stealthy, minimizing odor is critical. Experienced smokers will take a deep whiff and smile knowingly as they walk by; casual users, on the other hand, might not be so forgiving.

So make sure your carbon filters are on full-bore and avoid wearing clothes that smell like weed in public – otherwise, it’ll be painfully obvious what you’re up to.
