Strain Spotlight: Super Silver Haze

Strain Spotlight: Super Silver Haze

Super Silver Haze is a world-renowned cannabis strain made with legendary genetics. Its lineage includes DNA from such popular parents as Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze. With such an impressive pedigree, it doesn’t come as a big surprise that Super Silver Haze won first place in the High Times Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998, and 1999. Judges were blown away for three straight years by this premium cannabis flower, and it remains one of the most popular sativa strains in the world.

Strain Origins

Green House Seeds in Amsterdam gets the credit for cultivating and popularizing Super Silver Haze over 20 years ago. Among cannabis fans, this strain is the equivalent of a supergroup. Northern Lights lends some of its resilience, resin production, and cerebral characteristics. Haze and Skunk No. 1 are both associated with uplifted and energetic experiences, which makes both of these strains excellent building blocks for other sativa-dominant strains.

What to Expect from Super Silver Haze

Each of the impressive plants that went into creating Super Silver Haze did their part to impart pleasant characteristics. The buds are sticky, fluffy, and a beautiful shade of green. As you break them apart, you might not be particularly surprised by an aroma of any specific type. Most people say it just smells like pretty normal cannabis: a spicy plant smell with just a hint of citrus.

Don’t let the somewhat low-key flavor profile of these buds fool you– most people say they fall head over heels for this strain within minutes of that first taste. Most reviewers associate it with an uplifting experience that definitely gets their attention, but doesn’t become overwhelming. Simply put, people who enjoy sativa strains are likely to absolutely love Super Silver Haze.

Silvertip Strain

Because Super Silver Haze was so well received, some of the best cannabis growers have used it as a parent for additional strains. One such example is Silvertip, which is appropriately named. It offers an earthiness like a walk through Silvertip firs, and can bite like a Silvertip shark.


Silvertip is a cross between Super Silver Haze and Granddaddy Purple. It was originally cultivated in Montana, which is why some people also call it Montana Silvertip. Like many great combinations, word of the Silvertip hybrid quickly made its way through the cannabis community.

Taste, Smell, and Effects: What to Expect

Sativa Strains like Silvertip are extremely popular among people who like to feel uplifted and inspired, but not overly excitable. The strong indica lineage from Granddaddy Purple combines with Super Silver Haze to create a more balanced sativa-leaning hybrid. The flower often comes in smooth little nuggets that let off a pleasant earthy smell when you break them up. People typically report associating the Silvertip strain with feelings of calm, happy energy.
