When Dinafem created Super Silver, they wanted a sativa strain that truly stands out from many others. Dinafem definitely achieved this goal with Super Silver. This excellent strain can impress with many attractive characteristics, which makes it well-liked among growers, connoisseurs and medical cannabis users. Growers love that Super Silver grows with unparalleled vigor and strength and that she flowers fast in any growing environment. This makes Super Silver also a great strain for less experienced growers who want quality bud without any sacrifices. While Super Silver can reach its full potential grown outdoors in sunny conditions, she will also thrive well indoors or if you grow her in a greenhouse. She will reward the grower with an intensive flavor and aroma that beautifully fuses together notes of citrus fruit, wood, spices and incense.

Durban, named after the South African port city of Durban is the most widely-known African cannabis strain. Unlike other sativa strains, subtropical Durban grows short and chunky and is a favorite of local growers because of her reliability and massive yields. Generations of first-class growing results in her homeland gave Durban her stellar reputation but smokers and connoisseurs from around the world value her as being a sativa unlike any other. She is most famous for her super potent and mind-blowing high. When Sensi Seeds created Durban, the goal was to make those qualities available to growers in more temperate climate zones. Sensi’s enhanced Durban keeps all the amazing traits like the original. The heavy-branching plant is very robust and can grow enormous results of juicy, crystalline buds with a flavor of lemon and aniseed even in summers that don’t see lots of sunshine as can be the case in our climates. Durban’s unique high is extremely potent and unlike that of other sativas has a narcotic characteristic. While very powerful and sedating, it doesn’t overpower like some indicas do.
Those familiar with cannabis strains know that Haze stands for the finest quality in cannabis. Not many strains come close to the pure aroma and exceptional high that Hazes can give. For the average home grower however, achieving this quality always came at some cost: The very long flowering time of sometimes more than 20 weeks as well as the fact that Hazes can quickly grow out of control made growing them anything but easy. Dutch Passion did a great job at solving those drawbacks with their excellent Dutch Haze. By breeding-in some indica genetics without sacrificing anything of the quality from the sativa side, Dutch Haze brings us what we love from pure Hazes without the hassles of growing them. You can find delight in her typical Hazy smell that is floral, tangy, sour and sweet with some aromatic wooden notes on top. As you would expect from a first-class Haze with Dutch roots, she will give a super powerful cerebral, psychedelic and upbeat effect.
Chocolope by DNA Genetics is one of their bestselling strains. Looking at her many qualities, this isn’t really surprising at all. This sativa-heavy strain is super easy to grow so that even less experienced growers can expect excellent results with just a little basic care. Chocolope doesn’t just grow massively sized buds that will guarantee big harvests after her 8-9 weeks flowering time. If you let her, she can grow very tall but you can easily get her under control with some simple topping or training. DNA Genetics created Chocolope from a cross of OG Chocolate Thai x Cannalope Haze and were able to keep all the great Chocolate Thai qualities, like her fantastic chocolate flavor that makes her a favorite of many smokers. Not only has Chocolope won already countless rewards. She has a flawless 100% record in any competition she enters, thanks to her outstanding qualities.
