Super Silver Haze from Good Flower via The Spot on 11/16/19. THC tested out to 16.89%. Purchased for $10 plus tax thanks to Happy Hour. Super Silver Haze is a classic, so when I was able cop some at a discount due to the Spot’s killer Happy Hour rate, I was 100% on board. These buds are a mix of light and dark green with a dusting of triches and dark reddish brown pistils. I spotted a seed pod on one of the buds but I didn’t come across any actual seeds.
The herb is very crispy, my guess is that moisture pack was added to combat this, but it was not very helpful. The nose out of the jar is musty in a dusty back of your closet kind of way. The smell strikes me as being similar to clothes that have been put away for many years and are now just getting exposed to fresh air for the first time in a while. There’s this acrid smell that’s also that’s hard to pin down, it’s a little cheesy and a little citrusy, but overall just comes off as unpleasant. When breaking the nug, there’s a bit of a sweetness that emerges, but it’s mostly that same musty cheese scent. On the finger grind I notice the mustiness sort of widens out and you get a bit more of the sweet and citrus but it’s not all that powerful. I’d say it comes off as a really muted spicy lemon. The inhale is little harsh on the throat and I catch a flavor that reminds me of a pineapple rind but in an extremely faint sort of way. On the exhale I pick up on a slight sweetness with a bit of earthiness in the background. The headchange is weak and frankly frustrating. I smoked bowl after bowl and it would almost get me where I wanted to be but not quite. It felt like climbing an icy steep driveway, struggling as you’re almost to the top, then losing your footing and sliding all the way back down to the bottom. I’d describe this as Grandpa Strength. If you know an older person who used to smoke back in the day but finds that strains today are just too powerful this would be perfect for them. While I would recommend it for someone like that, I can’t say I would recommend it for anyone else, even at the discounted rate. Sorry Good Flower, as a sativa fan and a Super Silver Haze lover, this one was a total miss for me.
