Shiva Skunk: A potent indica strain
Shiva Skunk is a potent indica strain that is the result of the crossing of the two absolute classic parent strains Skunk #1 and Northern Lights #5. This strain remains at a nice manageable size all throughout the grow cycle and offers large bounties of buds at the end of the flowering stage. The hard hitting high and beautiful flavours and aromas make this strain extremely rewarding to cultivate.
Shiva Skunk offers a profound stoning effect initiated by the indica genetics within this cannabis variety. This strain is best smoked during a lazy evening or before bed to assist with sleep. It also makes a great smoke before settling down to watch and film or to get through a significant portion of a book. The high targets both the body and the mind.
The body high is quite intense and will definitely kindle the flames of the appetite, all the while inducing severe states of relaxation, calm, and couch lock. The head high ignited by the strain is characterised by thought provoking and exhilarating sensations and borders on the psychedelic.
These effects have some medical potential and are reported to help with pain, headaches, lack of appetite, muscle spasms, and stress. Be prepared to keep some water or juice nearby to counteract the possible dry mouth caused by smoking Shiva Skunk.
Shiva Skunk offers some delightful tastes that are defined as sweet and spicy. The strain also gives off a nice and pleasant scent of bubblegum, honey, and fruits.
Shiva Skunk is an easy strain to grow and therefore may appeal to beginners looking to cultivate some strong indica buds. The plants rarely exceed 75cm in height which makes them easy to conceal for those wanting to keep a low profile. This small and compact size also makes a great addition to outdoor garden beds in areas where growers want to keep their activities a secret. Shiva skunk has a flowering time of around 45 to 55 days and is known to produce yields of between 251 and 500g per square metre. The outcome will all depend on the growing practices and quality of light and nutrients that plants have exposure to.
