About Silver Pearl
With a rich history dating back to a 1994 best hybrid win at the High Times’ Cannabis Cup, Silver Pearl is a favorite in Amsterdam coffee shops. Sensi Seeds developed this 80/20 sativa-dominant strain by crossing Early Pearl, Skunk, and Northern Lights #5 to create a plant that delivers strong mental effects.
Possessing a moderate THC level, 16% on average, Silver Pearl shouldn’t be thought of as a weak strain. Its attractive notes of sweet citrus, honey, and spice are accented by a noticeable skunky aroma, yet it tastes slightly more herbal and earthy upon exhale. Many note that it smells of chocolate and tastes of honey, yet flavors and scents seem to vary. Nugs of Silver Pearl are quite a sight, as they’re sticky with a ton of bright hairs and layers upon layers of trichomes.
Looking for a mellow high that eases you into a dreamy sleep? It’s best to look somewhere else then, as Silver Pearl is known as a great wake-and-bake bud. It hits you instantly with a head high that boosts your mood and gets your mind going, yet can create strong psychedelic effects for inexperienced users. While Silver Pearl allows you to get things done and flesh out any lingering thoughts you may have had, it doesn’t provide a focused high like other hybrids. Instead, you’ll find yourself bouncing from one thing to the next before settling into a lethargic relaxation that starts to slow down your mind.
When used in moderation, this strain is great for those who suffer from stress and anxiety since it engages the feel-good part of your brain. Keep in mind that higher doses of Silver Pearl can induce anxiety, so those with the condition should use caution. Fatigue, pain relief, and even a poor appetite can also be helped tremendously from this strain, although it may not be quite as powerful for chronic pain as others.
Novice growers will think they’ve hit the jackpot with Silver Pearl, as it is easy to manage as long as it’s cultivated indoors. It has a tendency to flower after only 7 weeks, and sometimes sooner, so it’s a great strain to get your growing skills fine-tuned. Plants top out at an adequate height and can produce a fairly large yield.
If you have the time to be high for hours, Silver Pearl is a great choice. Many users report its effects last for at least two to three hours with a nice mixture of uplifting and relaxing effects. Use in moderation for help with easy to complete tasks or pain relief before settling in for a functional but relaxing high.
