Looking for a meditative, psychedelic Indica? Shiva Skunk is for you. This potent flower will leave you feeling relaxed, creative and even euphoric.

Shiva Skunk is one of the more potent Indica strains in the Skunk family. This powerful flower will put you into a state of deep, blissful contemplation. Marijuana patients will also find it's also great for pain and bodily tension.

 

Shiva Skunk Experience


Shiva Skunk is named after the Hindu God, Shiva. Shiva has also been called the "Lord of Bhang" and the "Lord of Dance". Shiva is also regarded as the patron of yoga, meditation, and arts. Named in honor of the deity, you can count on Shiva Skunk to make you feel a little meditative, blissful, and one with your own body.

Looking for a meditative, psychedelic Indica? This is the strain for you. Popular in Europe, this weed is among the most potent and hard-hitting flowers amongst the Skunk strains. Its THC levels range from 15 to 20%. Most consumers report a strong physical sensation of heaviness quickly after consumption. As the high continues, it expands to produce nearly psychedelic effects.

Many marijuana consumers find themselves in giggle fits or in a state of sedated, relaxed euphoria. If you're hoping to get some mindfulness practice in, this strain will help you explore your mind in a whole new way. Recreational marijuana consumers should pick out this strain when they're looking to bring their present attention to the altered state cannabis provides.

 

Traits of Shiva Skunk and Shiva Skunk Seeds


First bred by Sensi Seeds, this flower is the product of Northern Lights #5 and Skunk #1. It has a strong musky skunk aroma with hints of an almost berry-like sweetness. This strain is pretty darn sedative, so you'll want to save it for nighttime use or a rainy day. Marijuana connoisseurs may even detect skunk and menthol flavors on the exhale.

The nugs of Shiva Skunk are almost spade-shaped, with deep green leaves mixed into the lighter mint shaded ones. Densely packed, riddled with orange pistils and topped off with a modest frosting over crystal white trichomes, marijuana consumers will be licking their lips at the site of this strain.

 

Medical Benefits of Shiva Skunk


Thanks to its number of medical applications, Shiva Skunk is widely sought after by marijuana patients looking to treat a number of conditions.

  • Medical cannabis consumers will appreciate the pain-fighting properties of this strain

  • Many people report that they also find relief from eye pressure with Shiva Skunk, along with headaches

  • Those who experience chronic stress, depression and anxiety also tend to appreciate the contemplative euphoria of this strain

Growing Tips

Shiva Skunk's buds will bulk up later in flowering. Indoors, this strain does well in sea of green (SOG) environments and does best in hydroponic systems. Outdoor growing doesn't bode so well for this indica. If you do plant outside, it performs best in a Mediterranean climate. Shiva Skunk is a little sparse on the leaves, so this plant is very easy to trim.
