Ever since a pair of brothers started breeding Sativas from all over the world back in the 70s, cannabis smokers have been truly grateful for the existence of a type of plant called Haze. Originally, this was the culmination of years of breeding thousands of seeds from Colombia, Mexico, Thailand and South India. Eventually this haze genetic would make its way over to Holland for further hybridisation to form the pinnacle of modern day Sativa strains.
Upon arriving in Holland, along with the now classic skunk varieties, a pair of breeders went to work to find that super hybrid which could capture the sweet taste and high of a haze, but the short flowering period of an Indica. Using a combination of Haze, Skunk and Northern Lights genetics, one of these breeders would end up with one of the first haze classics, Super Silver Haze.
Since then, these early genetics have been spread out and hybridised over the years, from which we bring you one of our top varieties at Royal Queen Seeds, Shining Silver Haze. Our haze hybrid will grow to about 1 m tall, very short for a haze, indoors, but can stretch to over 2 m outside. Grown outdoors, it will need a lot of sun, even a greenhouse, in regions like Spain, Italy or North Africa.
Our Shining Silver Haze Feminized will yield on average 55-65 g per plant, or up to 450 g square metre under a 600w light. Flowering time is 9-10 weeks, which is really quite short for a haze plant. There are very few haze varieties which can produce that sweet taste and strong high of a haze in less than 10 weeks, but Shining Silver Haze is definitely one of them.
The smoke from Shining Silver Haze is simply fantastic. Smokers will love the instant head high that comes with every hit of a joint or bong. The haze effect will go straight to your brain and put you in an actual haze of thoughts. The taste of the smoke is just a pleasing with a super sweet flavour that makes your taste buds moist with anticipation.
Height: short plant (average internodal distance under 5 cm).
Flowering Indoor: 8 weeks flowering time. Yield up to 0.9 gram (dry and manicured) per watt per m2 (with 1000W HPS).
Flowering Outdoor: 8 weeks flowering time. Very large plants can harvest over 1kg of dried, manicured buds.
Taste (burned): chemical, mineral, flowery.
Scent (unburned): kushy, sweet like blossoms yet salty, almost metallic. Complex.
Speed of high onset: fast hitter.
Duration of high: medium lasting.
Quality/type of high: still to be evaluated, surely a good appetite stimulant.
Medicinal qualities: against apathy and depression.
The Caboose is a famous Californian cut, a cross of the original Trainwreck with the legendary Salmon Creek Big Bud. After several years testing we were able to reverse it and self it, to make stable feminized seeds. The strain grows compact, with short internodes and wide branching.
The structure of the branches makes it a good filler and a great producer; it has the irregular bud formation typical of the Trainwreck heritage, with the calyxes large and round, with purple and reddish hues, but the buds grow large and dense, more like a big Bud than a Trainwreck. This large-calix and large-bud combination is very rare, and makes the Caboose an ideal commercial strain with great quality and a very complex aroma and flavour.
The Caboose is good for outdoor and indoor, and performs great on all mediums. If plants are large the branches should be supported. The EC levels can be high, especially when the plants are in a healthy environment and perform at 100%. The Caboose is a fast hit, burns well and has a distinctive mineral taste, complemented by a flowery background. It smells like Chinese oranges and spring blossoms, but it also has a pungent, almost metallic scent (a memory of the heritage from the Big Bud side).
The resin is very white, giving it a really cosmetic look. The effect is very intense.
It starts very trippy, then moves on to a slow but steady descent into the realm of narcotic and couchlock.
It is not suggested for productive or creative moments, it is more suitable for relaxing, chilling,
watching movies or just as a pre-sleep aid.
