Silver Surfer is a sativa-dominant hybrid with all the buzzy energy you could possibly need to power through your day. This strain is a cross between award-winning Super Silver Haze and the uber-popular Blue Dream. With a dank and earthy aroma alongside its active, productive mindset, this strain is a must-try for both sativa and hybrid lovers. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has measured Silver Surfer’s potency at between 12% and an impressive 26% THC.
Silver Surfer establishes its bag appeal right away with flowers that show off a hybridized structure: like indicas, they are dense and tightly-packed, but like sativas, they have an elongated, almost cylindrical shape. The leaves are a patchwork of mossy green, shot through with dark orange to red pistils. Some phenotypes of this strain also have faint hints of light purple in their leaves; these hues are due to pigments called anthocyanins which trigger shades of blue and purple when agitated by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, much like White Widow and this bud’s parents strain Super Silver Haze, Silver Surfer is named for the high volume of translucent trichomes that cover its leaves and gives them a silvery sheen.
When properly cured, flowers of Silver Surfer have a musky, earthy scent, similar to that of damp soil. On closer inspection, the acrid tang of cheese is also present, giving the buds a sharp edge. This strain seems to have little of the fruitiness of its parent, Blue Dream; instead, Silver Surfer’s only sweetness comes through as a kind of sour-sweet, fermented smell when buds are ground up or broken apart. When combusted in a pipe or a joint, Silver Surfer burns with a harsh smoke that may tickle the palate or sinuses and trigger a coughing fit.
