The most powerful member of the Skunk family and therefore one of the most powerful Indica-dominant strains ever made, this very special hybrid is named in honor of the Hindu god Shiva, Lord of Bhang. Shiva Skunk seeds were an instant hit when released in 1987 as NL # 5 x Sk # 1. This simple description was of great interest to all growers familiar with these two famous relatives. A new marijuana strain that combines distinct and stable genotypes is always a noteworthy event, and this particular combination of letters indicated something extraordinary.
NL # 5 x Sk # 1 offered growers a super-hybrid embodying the two most potent cannabis strains known. Before being formally named, Shiva Skunk was already building a reputation as the next step in marijuana growing. Currently, Sensi's Shiva Skunk has taken a step further by offering one of the all-time favorite genetics in a uniform, reliable, and all female strain!
Both parents give the prolific bud structure and devastating power of Shiva Skunk feminized seeds. During the advanced flowering period, buds greatly increase their mass and density and are coated with the characteristic layer of large resin glands, courtesy of the exclusive Northern Lights #5. Its remarkable hybrid vigour allows the feminized Shiva Skunk to overcome its distinguished predecessors in terms of flower and resin production.
Its aroma is musky with sweet citrus background, the smoke is thick, expansive and resinous, described as "creamy" by veterans, and sometimes "oily" or "strong" by beginners. The extreme mind-body effects of the Shiva Skunk can have a range of different effects in smokers, from red-eyed and smiling, to deeply contemplative or even stimulating and very active.
Do not underestimate it, remember that Lord Shiva is the Destroyer!
