Silver Haze was bred by Sensi Seeds in an attempt to produce a Haze that could be grown well indoors. 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 is a 50/50 hybrid strain with reported THC levels of up to 14 percent. The strain is named for the frosty trichome covered buds it produces that can give the buds a silver hue.
