Making its debut in the 1990s, Super Silver Haze (sometimes just "SSH") is a sticky strain that boasts three first-place prizes at the High Times Cannabis Cup, taking home its first award in 1997, then again in 1998 and 1999. Though this achievement is impressive, the appeal of this remarkable strain has spanned decades and into the modern day. 

So, if you're looking for Super Silver Haze strain info, you've come to the right place. From origins to effects and beyond, we will cover everything you need to know about SSH. 

Origins of Super Silver Haze

The 1990s were a prime era for some of the most beloved strains in the world of cannabis. Along with Super Silver Haze, it saw the inception of connoisseur favorites such as Sour Diesel and Jack Herer

The legendary Green House Seed Company first developed the Super Silver Haze strain in the Netherlands. It came about from crossing Skunk, Northern Lights, and Haze. As you already know, it didn't take long for this strain to gain notoriety by sweeping the competition at the High Times Cannabis Cup. 

Is Super Silver Haze Indica or Sativa?

In general, people classify Super Silver Haze as a sativa. This property makes it prime for daytime enjoyment or whenever you want to feel vibrant engagement versus winding down for the day. 

Now, the terms "indica" and "sativa" have stirred up much debate within the cannabis and scientific community alike. As of this writing, scientists can't find a genetic distinction between strains labeled as "indica" or "sativa." Then you have the factor of U.S. law, which considers any strain, especially hemp, as Cannabis sativa L. 

However, debates aside, most of your run-of-the-mill cannabis enthusiasts will tell you that Super Silver Haze is Sativa-dominant

Super Silver Haze Terpenes

You may have heard the term "terpenes" thrown around a lot, especially when it comes to cannabis strains. But what are they?

Simply put, terpenes are aromatic plant compounds that give plants their scent and flavor. Besides cannabis, you can find terpenes in various species, from pine trees to apples. 

Terpenes are important because they can modulate the way THC and other cannabinoids interact with the body. The dominant terpenes for our Super Silver Haze strain are: 
  • Caryophyllene - "peppery"
  • Terpinolene - "citrus"
  • Myrcene - "herbal"

Super Silver Haze Effects

Generally, Super Silver Haze is known for its uplifting effects. According to many enthusiasts, it's great for daily high-stress situations and may offer relief if you've got a big day ahead of you or are taking time to sort out bills (if you are experiencing high-stress levels with no known source, we recommend seeing a licensed professional). Many others will also claim that the stain is perfect for energetic, long-lasting, body-focused relaxation while offering a brightened mood.

Other effects associated with Super Silver Haze include: 
  • Feeling energetic
  • Having a brightened mood
  • Creative inspiration 
Remember that the effects of cannabinoids and strains will vary from person to person. You will only know what a strain can offer you once you try it yourself. But if you're looking for an excellent choice for social events, creative endeavors, and spending time outside on a beautiful day, Super Silver Haze is worth the consideration.
