Silver Haze delivers the full-strength Haze experience in a fatter, faster, more compact form. Crossing Haze with Northern Lights, Silver Haze maintains strong but clear-headed effects. Introduced by Sensi Seeds, Silver Haze gets its name from the massive amount of shiny THC glands covering the buds.
A classic sativa strain with THC levels averaging at 20-24%, Silver Haze is considered one of the most potent sativa strains on the market. Its effects are frequently reported as heavily cerebral, uplifting, and energizing. Silver Haze has two origin stories.
Origin 1: Silver Haze by Sensi Seeds
This Silver Haze originates in the 1980s as a hybrid of Silver Pearl x Haze. Silver Pearl is a hybrid of Early Pearl x Skunk #1/Northern Lights.
Origin 2: Silver Haze by Shantibaba and Mr. Nice
This Silver Haze originates with breeders Scott Blakey (AKA Shantibaba), Howard Marks (AKA Mr. Nice), and Neville Schoenmaker, who retooled their Super Silver Haze strain — a hybrid of Skunk x Northern Lights x Haze — and called it Silver Haze when they left Greenhouse Seed Company.
Silver Haze won the bronze for Best Sativa in the 2005 High Times Cannabis Cup while its closest relative, Super Silver Haze, has won countless awards.
The original Haze was an early hybrid that could only be grown outdoors, due to its minimal yield and unmanageable height-gain. Crossing the unruly Haze with the Afghani Indica Northern Lights #5 stabilizes the growth patterns of Silver Haze for high yields in a controlled, indoor growing environment. Growers can still expect significant, albeit manageable, height-gain from Silver Haze during its relatively long 65-75 day flowering period. Near the end of flowering, Silver Haze’s buds grow dense — packed with frosty, silver trichomes and long, flowing orange hairs.

To overcome the height, yield and flowering issues of Haze they crossed it with a pure landrace Afghani Indica. The end result is a 75 percent Sativa hybrid that flowers for 65 to 70 days and is capable of an average size harvest.

SILVER HAZE: CLASSIC HAZE MIXED WITH NORTHERN LIGHTS
Silver Haze is a beloved ganja strain with an interesting story.The first Haze sativa strains were developed by mixing landraces from Southeast Asia, South America, and South India, and with this, the course of cannabis history was forever changed.
When some early Haze strains made their way into Amsterdam, they had to be hybridized because the northern climates weren’t optimal for cultivation. When Northern Lights got included in the mix, Silver Haze came to light with its high THC levels and intensely fruity aromas.
