I can't say I have smoked enough Silver Haze to give a truely accurate rating, but I can say one thing... This shit hits hard. Two hits off of this strain and it left me feeling numb with a full body high. I was at my friends house who lives only a couple streets over so about a 10 minute walk. What should have been a 10 minute walk was around a 40 minute walk. If you are tired and/or experiencing any sort of head or muscle pain then this is definitely the strain to remedy it.... One last thing, I found myself getting pretty hungry part way through my high so you might want to have something to munch on :).
