Great ganja: Cannabis consultant Courtland Sandover-Sly shares his favourite strain

1 of 2 2 of 2

“I have developed a love for Vancouver Island–grown Super Silver Haze,” cannabis business consultant and financial adviser Courtland Sandover-Sly says when asked about his go-to strain. The sativa-heavy hybrid scored a High Times hat trick, taking home the first prize at the Cannabis Cup in 1997, 1998, and 1999. The strain garnered its award-winning reputation for combining three steadfast parent phenotypes: Northern Lights, Skunk, and Haze.

“It suits my lifestyle,” he says. “I am a busy person. I run two businesses as well as volunteering as the president for the BCICA [B.C. Independent Cannabis Association], and it provides the energy and clarity at the times when I need it most.”

Sandover-Sly says he typically indulges at the end of a long work day—adding that he leans toward smoking flower because a good Super Silver Haze is difficult to find in extract form.

“I don’t like how some strains of cannabis can limit my ability to be social, so this allows me to unwind but still go out and have fun.”
