Being a cross of Northern Lights #5 and Skunk #1, two of the most powerful strains at the time, Shiva Skunk even out-performed her parents in terms of yield and resin production. The award-winning cross soon became the god of the Skunk family and is absolutely properly named after the Hindu deity Shiva. Of all the Hindu gods, he is said to be the one who enjoys cannabis frequently. He discovered the astonishing properties of the plant whilst meditating in a field of ganja trees. This indica-dominant strain is comprised of 85% indica and 15% sativa genes, and is available as regular and feminized seeds.
This is a compact plant with a really short flowering period - usually between 45-55 days. She shows amazing hybrid vigour during growth. Shiva Sunk is a heavy yielder because of her prolific bud structure. The resin production is insane and in late bloom the buds will explode, being covered in a thick layer of oversized trichomes, which are a trademark of the strain. If you grow her outdoors, expect her to be ready for harvest at the end of September or the beginning of October. She will thrive in a temperate or continental climate.
Shiva Skunk has a super dank aroma. It is musky but also has sweet and citrusy undertones. When you light up a joint of this indica, the smoke inhaled will be thick and resinous. Fans of the cultivar describe it as "creamy", while novice smokers normally use the attributes "oily" or "heavy". Be prepared to cough a lot if you are not used to such quality smoke! Keep in mind that Shiva Skunk is one of the most potent indica-dominant strains ever made. Again, smart move to was named her after Shiva, since his primary title is "The Destroyer" ... You will definitely feel the extra massive body and mind effect. Consumers can go from being giggly and having red eyes to feeling adventurous and even producing deep, profound, contemplative thoughts.
