Effects & Usage



Silver Haze is a sativa-dominant hybrid from a distinguished Northern Lights and Haze lineage. With THC content reaching up to the mid-20s, the strain gleams with potency. It will make you full of happy and creative energy and self-belief, enabling you to get almost anything and everything done.


Silver Haze is a potent strain and may feel a little overwhelming to newbies. However, if consumed responsibly, the journey it takes you on is nothing short of magnificent.

Within moments of inhaling, a strong wave of euphoria will envelop your entire being, rapidly spreading throughout your mind and body. This translates to a surge of motivation that inspires you to tackle various tasks and activities.

Whether it’s a creative art project or a mundane chore at home, the strain’s effects make every endeavour more enjoyable and attainable. Silver Haze leaves you with a clear mind despite its potency, allowing you to face life’s challenges head-on. This is why it’s considered one of the best strains for an uplifting wake-and-bake experience, providing a more powerful boost than a double espresso. Moreover, it’s an ideal choice for social gatherings, as it induces happiness, talkativeness, and a lively party mood that can last all night.

You may also like strains like Durban Poison or Bruce Banner if you enjoy such intense cerebral stimulation.


Silver Haze can remedy many conditions, although it shines brightest in relieving some symptoms of mental discomfort. With the help of myrcene, the strain provides mind relaxation, easing stress. Its uplifting and energising properties, fortified by limonene, will give you clarity of mind and positive energy and may be helpful not only in depression but potentially also conditions like ADHD and PTSD.

Furthermore, the strain may relieve minor aches and headaches, primarily by distracting you from the pain. It is also known to induce a strong appetite, which can be helpful for cancer patients or individuals struggling with other conditions associated with weight and appetite loss.

Side effects

Given the high THC content, overindulgence in Silver Haze might trigger paranoia, dizziness, and anxiety. Caution is essential if you have a history of mental health conditions or are a novice user. Start low and slow on Silver Haze to ensure you enjoy the experience. You can also expect the usual side effects of cannabis, meaning dry mouth and eyes.

Taste & Smell


Silver Haze owes its name to a beautiful massive layer of sparkling trichomes covering its large, loose flowers. There is also an abundance of long, dark orange pistils contrasting with the silver-green buds, adding to the strain’s visual allure.

The pungent aroma is a vibrant mix of earthy and piney undertones with a typical citrus Haze influence. It tends to linger in the room for a long while, so take precautions if you are trying to keep your consumption discrete.

The strain’s flavour mirrors the complex aroma, with citrus and earthy notes on the inhale, rounded off by a sweet woody exhale.



The strain is a creation of the Dutch Sensi Seeds, who aimed to streamline Haze’s flowering process and make its cultivation more manageable. For this purpose, they crossed two classics: Northern Lights with the original Haze. As a result, they achieved a sativa-dominant strain that retained most of the intense cerebral qualities of the mother, Haze.

Growing conditions

Silver Haze is a strain that thrives in a controlled environment, preferably indoors. The plant is sensitive to temperature and humidity levels and can be susceptible to mould and mildews. It needs a hot and sunny climate for outdoor growth – meaning you can try to plant your own in Thailand.

Though the plant can reach an impressive height of up to 2 metres, techniques such as topping and trimming can keep its size manageable. A little patience is required, as its flowering time ranges between 10-11 weeks. You can expect around 400 grams per square metre for indoor cultivation and 450 grams per outdoor plant.
