Cultivating Shiva Skunk from Sensi Seeds

Due to its notorious parents, the Shiva Skunk is known for its prolific bud structure, and for the oversized trichomes which cover buds and leaves alike during the flowering period. There are two known phenotypes for the strain, one of them indica-dominant, the other sativa-dominant.

The two phenotypes are easy to distinguish, as the sativa phenotype is much slower to grow than the indica one. When the indica phenotype manifests itself, get ready for a darker plant that does not lack assets;

“Right from the beginning she stood out, slower growing than her skunk type sisters with shorter internode gaps and broader leafs on short fat leaf stems.” – by sicklehand, forum.sensiseeds.com[x]

The vigour of this hybrid is clearly one of its main fortes; regardless of phenotype, it is also known to perform extremely well in terms of resin production, and to result in gargantuan yields.

“During the flowering period she’s quick to build bud and gives off very little smell, growing into a typical indica plant […] with a main cola surrounded by smaller outer buds that remain shorter than the central bud.” – by sicklehand, forum.sensiseeds.com [x]

And because of the aforementioned vigour – among other things – Shiva Skunk plants tend to be considered fitting for a first growing experience. This strain has even been cheekily described on multiple occasions as “idiot-proof”. And for more accomplished enthusiasts, it can also open many doors in terms of experimenting with indoor growing!

“The Shivas are incredibly uniform: this strain would be perfect also for any serious SOG project.” – by alsc, forum.sensiseeds.com [x]

Tasting Sensi Seeds’ Shiva Skunk

Both of the Shiva Skunk’s parents can justify why the strain should not be underestimated. The smoke is thick and resinous, often described as “creamy”. Sensi Seeds folks like to say its extra strong body-mind effects are worthy of the Hindu God Shiva, a.k.a. the Destroyer.

The smell of Shiva Skunk flowers is described as musky and sweet, with citrus undertones, although it can sometimes reveal different fruity scents;

“Smells like sweet Skunk and Columbian brick weed with a hint of forest berries. This has a sweet skunk smell mixed with a nice spice, the undertone is of soft berry fruit.” – by drcannabi, 420magazine.com/forums [x]

In terms of taste, trust the smell of the flowers when you crumble them, as you will experience the same elements when consuming them. Shiva Skunk is also known to be extremely smooth despite its strength – enthusiasts who experience coughing more often than not should therefore be appeased.
