The sativa cannabis strain Silver Haze derives its name from the shimmering layer of trichomes it produces when ready for harvest, giving the plant a silver hue. It tastes of pine and mint, with lots of earthy/woody undertones that linger in the mouth.
The parent strains of Silver Haze are a cross between the indica Northern Lights and the sativa Haze. It first blossomed under the care of Sensi Seeds.
Silver Haze’s THC content averages at 11% and doesn’t get much higher, with some crops reaching only 14%. Its high gives the consumer a clear-headed euphoria, perfect for going out and getting tasks done. Silver Haze will increase creativity but works well for social events too, ridding one of social anxiety. This strain will also help relax the body, but isn’t recommended for relieving pain or aches.
The negative side-effects are your typical dry mouth and eyes with some experiencing dizziness, paranoia, and headaches if consumed improperly.
Flowering time for Silver Haze takes nine to ten weeks and grows best indoors.
