Inspired by the Hindu god of destruction, Shiva Skunk is a powerful strain with a high THC content that delivers a sedating and relaxing effect.
Released back in 1987, Shiva Skunk was first developed in the Netherlands under the name NL#5xSK#1. It is a cross between Northern Lights No. 5 and Skunk No. 1, two strains with a long history. The resulting 85% indica hybrid is incredibly potent with high THC levels that can reach 20%. This makes Shiva Skunk one of the strongest weed strains on the market today.
With its deep earthy notes, distinctive berry taste, and strong skunky scent, Shiva Skunk is loved by cannabis connoisseurs who are looking for something a little different out of their weed. It’s also popular among medical marijuana patients who require something to increase their appetite and relieve their chronic pain symptoms.
Shiva Skunk is impressively easy for beginner growers and will produce an average of 450 grams of bud per square meter once ready.
