About Super G
Super G is a sativa-leaning hybrid with a prestigious genetic background. The creation of Seattle-based breeding group Soulshine Cannabis, this strain is a cross between sativa staple Haze and the highly resinous Super Silver Haze, Super G has heady effects that slowly dissolve into physical sedation. Its THC content has been measured at between 15% and 17%.
Super G is distinguished by medium to large-sized flowers that cling together in large, chunky cone shapes. Like many indica varieties, they display a dense inner core, but also exhibit long, wispy leaves that have more of a sativa appearance. These sage-green leaves are loosely twisted through with curly orange pistils. Finally, the flowers are capped off by a thick coat of translucent white trichomes that make them very sticky and difficult to break up without a grinder.
Flowers of Super G emit an intensely earthy aroma, with notes of dried leaves and soil. A second whiff may also reveal some hints of pine lurking underneath. Grinding up or breaking apart these flowers, meanwhile, can yield some rich fumes of diesel and skunk. When Super G is combusted in a pipe or a joint, all these scents may mingle in an acrid and cough-inducing smoke. On the exhale, this smoke tastes dank and woodsy. Those toking in public may want to take some precautions, as Super G can be a particularly pungent smoke.
Super G’s high takes hold soon after the strain is ingested, unleashing a headrush that may be accompanied by sensations like pulsing around the temples or some flushing in the cheeks. As they become accustomed to these tics, however, consumer may become aware of a distinct change in their thinking; one’s stream of consciousness may seem to take on a new dimension or complexity, with certain concepts occupying more attention than they ordinarily might. Thanks to this cerebral mindset, Super G can be highly effective in enabling productivity on anything from complex problem-solving tasks to freewheeling creative projects. Any smokers who aren’t feeling quite as motivated, however, can just enjoy Super G’s ongoing mental stimulation as they go about their daily agenda.
After an hour or so (or sooner, if dosage is boosted), Super G’s physical properties become gradually stronger. Waves of relaxation may roll down from the neck and radiate outward through the core, weighing down eyelids and limbs alike and making extended physical activity much more difficult. This spacey feeling may eliminate some of the high’s earlier mental edge. In fact, in the high’s later stages, smokers may experience some sensory distortions -- like a flattening of visual depth perception or a strong feeling of time dilation. As these effects wear on, couch lock become more and more likely. Thanks to its slow decline in energy levels, Super G is recommended for late afternoon or early evening use when it can be fully appreciated.
Super G’s multifaceted high can have some usefulness for medical cannabis patients as well. Its initial cerebral onslaught can help those with attention deficit disorders to stay zoned in on one task at a time. The strain’s generally upbeat vibe can also temporarily distract from mild to moderate cases of stress, depression, and anxiety. Physically speaking, Super G can dull chronic, disease-related aches and pains as well as inflammation-related discomforts like nausea and cramps. In properly relaxed conditions (and sufficient quantities), this sedative bud may even work against insomnia, lulling consumers to sleep. Because of its higher likelihood of obsessive, repetitive thinking patterns, Super G is not recommended for patients who are prone to paranoia or who have a low THC tolerance.
Seeds of Super G have not been made available for sale online. Those looking to grow the strain at home must somehow acquire clippings from its mature, healthy plants; these can be fostered as “clones.” Plants of Super G may thrive indoors or out, although successful outdoor cultivation calls for a hot and semi-humid climate. While there isn’t much information available on best practices for growing this strain, its sativa-inflected flowers suggest that crops grow tall and lanky and may require occasional pruning. Super G can reach flowering maturity within 9 to 10 weeks.
With its combination of mental and physical effects, Super G is the perfect strain for sativa fans who’d like to enjoy some long-lasting relaxation.
