A very nice strain that helps my worries disappear with its zen inducing body high, really enjoyed smoking this strain. Not too strong and also has a nice gentle head high as well. These seeds sprouted excellently and I was very happy with Pacific’s quality product.

No more worries when I smoke Shiatsu, the body high effects actually feel like I got a massage. Easy enough to grow but it provides a rather medium amount of weed. Still good however and is not overwhelming with its THC levels.

Beautiful plant…takes a steady hand to master this delicate marijuana strain…has a light floral aroma….and it rolls into beautifully thin joints….perfect for smoking alone or with friends….usually provides a “background buzz”….nice for listening to or playing some music.

Shiatsu Kush is a fantastic strain for those looking for pain relief. The euphoric and happy effects can help to balance out the pain and stress. The high is not too strong, making it great for beginners or those who don’t want to be too heavily sedated. It’s also easy to grow, making it a great choice for home cultivators. I recommend this strain to anyone looking for a balanced and effective pain reliever.

This is a sweet, earthy, delicious marijuana that is great for growing indoors! I have a small growing plot out in West Seattle, and it’s being put to good use! Happy to buy my seeds online, it’s saved me a lot of time and money, also looks great! Very fresh marijuana, the best on the west coast, and I LIKE Pacific seeds!

I feel like growing this strain is an art form. It’s very tender and delicate with its needs, but if you listen just right, you’ll be sure to have great success. It’s so nice to have marijuana in the yard. That way I know exactly where it comes from, especially since there are so many chemicals these days. Love my homegrown pot!!

This weed has a sweet floral smell and a deep flavor. I got my seeds online, had them shipped to my apartment, and enjoy watching them grow in my window. If you have a nice little LED setup, you actually can grow your own weed, and it looks phenomenal. It’s a very easy process but does take time, and usually yields are between 100-200 G per plant.

Smooth and tasty, this weed makes me so HAPPY! I never thought it was this easy! Buying online is so quick and convenient and the vibe is out of this world!!! It’s just a little delicate is all. So BE NICE to your plants and they’ll treat you right.

Might break your heart. Bought 10 seeds. 8 Germinated. 6 became fully matured plants. About 10 oz of weed. Fickle plant but high quality nug.

A boutique variety of mj, great for rolling into spliffs or long, thin joints that you smoke with your friends. Shiatsu kush is a patient garden grow with usually a pretty high scoring harvest, even if you aren’t an “expert.” It’s an evening strain for me, mix this with a cup of tea and a good book and you have me hooked!
Alastair Hobbs (verified owner) –
This has to be one of my favorite strains. It’s so nice to have this in your back pocket. It smells like a LOT of roses, and it hits the nostrils beautifully. I broke my knee last year and smoking homegrown herb helped with pain and inflammation. I swear it made it all better! Gotta buy more of this stuff!!
Nikola Woodcock (verified owner) –
Light and delicate this is the closest thing to FANCY weed I have ever smoked. The taste is mellow and floral and the vibe is anything but ordinary. I love smoking this and taking my dog Sam on long walks. We both love exploring, and Sam loves chilling with me in my garden, especially when I am cultivating my own mj from Pacific!

A sweet earthy and relaxing strain that helps with stress, depression and anxiety. I live on the Big Island, and growing weed out here is extra easy. The reliable sunlight and warm temps make cultivation fast and simple. Gets me very stoned, and gives me a GREAT internal drive to GET WORK DONE!
Pharrell Mcconnell (verified owner) –
A very delicate and flowering strain with a nice yield and a high THC potency. I am a BIG fan of these stoney weeds that get me really baked and make me super happy. It was not too difficult to grow either and it shipped to my mailbox faster than I could blink! Weed delivery is truly the future and it makes me happy.
Bevan Porter (verified owner) –
A very light and delicate strain, makes me smile every time, and it helps me deal with loneliness cause I am new to Seattle and there aren’t many people to socialize with here!!! I will definitely keep trying for friends, but in the meantime, I am really enjoying this marijuana, it looks and smells delicious and it gives me all the best vibes hooray!!
Evelyn Rowe (verified owner) –
Shiatsu kush is absolutely awesome and it feels great to smoke it in the evening when I am very stressed out. I looooove growing marijuana, it’s a great past time, and it always yields some excellent results. Ordering online from Pacific is absolutely amazing. I will definitely keep buying from them, their seeds are always awesome!

A very aromatic strain, takes a bit of patience and experience but well worth the effort. A quiet and relaxing high with mellow smoke, bet enjoyed as a joint or bowl. High quality and delicate. Highly recommend. Definitely order it online 😉

This weed is hella dank…it’s so delicate and light and sticky…and just wow! Very pleased with the grow on these seeds, very easy to cultivate and make things a lot easier on me, cause my back is always hurting, and I am very pleased….definitely a great strain for relaxation and back pain!!
Ariah Hensley (verified owner) –
A very sutble and delicate strain, kind of like a top-shelf liquor but with weed. It’s a little challenging to grow, was a little nervous to try it out for myself but I really think this was a good time either way. I ordered online and had it delivered and it came together very nicely. Beautiful buds, very dense and colorful…and plentiful as well!
goldfish550 (verified owner) –
This is a delicate strain with a lot of love put into its cultivation. Very happy I have this weed in my life. Got 3 seeds to start, perfect germination, and they all grew HUGE, so tall and bushy it was like a miracle!! I got nearly 500 grams of very high qual pot. Smoking this weed almost every day, and getting really stoned. Can’t wait to buy more!
Kimberly malone (verified owner) –
A delicate and relaxing strain, as calming as a cup of green tea in the afternoon, so good for the brain and so good for the soul. I love smoking this lovely aromatic indica and reading a book by the fire with my dog. I am very excited to share this with my sister, I know she will love PSB just as much as I do. Great buy!

I am very zen about my weed, I enjoy the relaxing vibes of the shiatsu kush…a very delicate strain with a unique flavor that helps with stress, depression and anxiety. I ordered my seeds online, they showed up within a week, and they grew nicely in my greenhouse, really can’t complain. Easy to manage and fun to harvest as well. Makes my morning meditations that much better!

Shiatsu kush is a phenomenal strain with a lot of subtelty and grace…it makes life easier…taking the edge off of things and always giving a nice glow to the afternoon. I work for the park service and I love just smoking a little joint on my walks around the preserve. I also keep a lovely garden at home, well worth the buy!
Waxxing (verified owner) –
Subtle and relaxing with a very unique floral aroma to it and a very delicate growing process. Truly a delicacy if there ever was one and pretty hard to find almost anywhere you look. Great buy for a great price for experienced growers. Pacific always delivers!
Outback (verified owner) –
Extotic and delicious, perfect for headaches, stress, and depression. A very mysterious strain, but well worth the grow. I got 3 seeds from Pacific and they shipped right out to my place here in SoCal. I have a little garden in the back and did most of my growing out there. Saved one seed for later 🙂 It’s a very aromatic strain, very intoxicating and uplifting. I definitely enjoy smoking it out of a bowl or a joint…or a bong if one is around. Definitely a good buy, highly recommend!

MMMmmmm is that vanilla I smell? Nope it’s the Shiatsu Kush again, what a surprise! I am so glad I decided to grow this weed in my backyard. It’s delicious and nutritious…well maybe not the latter, but the vibes it gives off make me feel nourished on the inside lol It was a bit of a fickle grow but what can I say? I am a master gardener and I can grow anything! I got a very respectable yield and like to smoke this at night to help with my joint pain. It’s an excellent indica blend.
HighHopes (verified owner) –
The Japanese know their way around weed for sure, this is some exotic and delicious weed that perfects the art of relaxation without sleepiness. I smoke this on the weekends, when I am walking around or chilling at the park. It’s a very…non-intrusive weed, doesn’t disrupt my daily activities, just enhances my mood and overall feeling of peace. It’s a delicate grow, so make sure you have time to dedicate, but what you put into it you also get out of it, so keep your spirits up, this MJ is worth it!
elizabethpark (verified owner) –
I was on the hunt for an exotic strain of mj and I am glad I stumbled on this stuff. It’s really floral and aromatic, I like hot it looks in my garden, very tall and full of color and light. It’s perfect smoking for those lazy days during the fall or winter where there’s not much else to do. I was really impressed by Pacific’s online catalog, it’s so vast! And the shipping is pretty darn quick as well. I really like what I’ve got here, and i’ll definitely do it again!
Dan J. (verified owner) –
The Japanese tend to do things well, and this weed definitely lives up to that standard. It’s a great backyard grow, perfect fit for most gardens, doesn’t take up too much room and doesn’t have too strong a smell. It’s nice and floral really, and extremely relaxing. Rare to find a weed this amazing at such a great price. I’ll be back for more!
Edward Saunders (verified owner) –
A nice even hybrid, not too strong or too mild. It’s a decent grow, but it was a bit finicky at times. Guess I am not the world’s greatest weed grower! It’s got a nice flower to it, smells and tastes a little like vanilla, and it offers up some delicious highs, very relaxing, like a sedative, and easy to unwind and watch a movie. Happy times!
Alec A. (verified owner) –
An interesting strain that’s more about the smell and taste than the high I think. Don’t get me wrong, this is a good thing in a lot of ways, and this weed offers some serious pain relief, which is a godsend for me cause I work in farming. The grow was a bit fickle but I liked the challenge, happy to smoke this at night before bed to help with aches and pain!
Shania V. (verified owner) –
Vanilla wondrous goodness. That is how I would describe Shiatsu Kush the great. First all, let me say that the seeds from Pacific are the best. I’ve used other seeds before but the ones from Pacific are the highest quality I’ve seen and their delivery time is good. (I live on a Canadian island in the middle of nowhere, but my order still got to be a relatively fast amount of time.) I have pain in my neck and shoudlers and shiatu is terrific treatment. It calms the pain AND my mind; such peacefulness with this mj.
Rodney A. (verified owner) –
Moderate everything in the best way possible. 50/50 split with decently high thc and decently high cbd, it’s an all around pleasant and very peaceful experience. Think meditative, really. The balance of indica and sativa make it a good painkiller without taking too much of the edge off so I can still focus on work and stuff as I need to. Quick delivery, too.
Peter M. (verified owner) –
The Japanese have a tendency to perfect everything, and this cannabis is no exception. It’s exceptional, as a matter of fact. With a quick flowering cycle and pretty high (by my standards) CBD – this is a fantastic strain for medical purposes such as pain management and whatever physical ailments may plague you. Important to note that topping increased my yield with my second round of plants, so I’d recommend a little bit of trimming for an otherwise easy to manage strain. 5 out of 5.
Carl S. (verified owner) –
I like to smoke pot but I don’t really care for getting “stoned” so this strain seemed to be the perfect balance of peace and relaxation without getting knocked off my feet! I grew a few plants in the side yard have enjoyed the sweet flowery smell it gives off and actually blends nicely with my citrus trees and other garden veggies. I’m happy I decided to treat myself to this strain, all the way from Japan! Best enjoyed with a cup of green tea.
Nate R. (verified owner) –
Who ever heard of Japanese weed? I hadn’t. But I like kush so I ordered. It turned out to be one of the better strains I’ve had—maybe the best. What I like most is the body effects. Pain relief is reliable and long-lasting. I’d say if you’re a fan of kush mj, you won’t go wrong with this one.
patricktylerreid (verified owner) –
A nice sweet treat to buy. You may have heard about the secretive breeding of this pot which made me so curious to try it. It made me deeply relax and feel calm which was fantastic. I wasn’t crazy about the vanilla smell but honestly the effect was so good and deep and chill that I loved it overall. If you like vanilla and a slightly perfume smell you will especially like it, if not, the effect is still good and worthwhile.
Monty A. (verified owner) –
Wow what a great grow! I was so intrigued by this strain given its history in Japan! One toke of Shiatsu Kush and all your anxieties just melt away, you feel both relaxed and alert and the earthy woody smell is intoxicating. I grew this in my backyard and had some pretty solid results. It was a bit of a slow flowering time (3-4 months) but well worth the wait, and I walked away with around 250 G which I’m pretty proud of. First time with Pacific, but I’ll be back for sure!
Nolan P. (verified owner) –
Duuuuuuuuuuude. This weed. It smells incredible. I feel like someone should make a perfume, cologne or body spray of this stuff. Or maybe incense? I could just sniff this bud all day without even smoking it and I’d be happy. When my ladies be chillin in my grow room I’d just go in there and sit with em, smelling their essence and giving em the good vibes. Plants like that, and when you talk to em too. Love this weed! Ordering again.
Mitch W. (verified owner) –
There’s nothing like the wondrous, magical shiatsu. The smells and taste are truly enticing – sweet and enveloping – and the effect of shiatsu is that stress and tension are sent packing. I was excited when I saw this strain available from PSB – it can be hard to find, even from growers in the USA. I will buy from Pacific Seeds again, very happy with their selection of seeds and the seed quality.
Pierre M. (verified owner) –
So so zen. I really like to smoke this weed right before meditating. I don’t know if you’re supposed to do that but I always have a great time, so it must be okay haha. I would highly recommend this strain for beginners. I gave a couple seeds to my sister to try, and she just started growing her own. She got em all growing with total success. I think anyone could grow this one with no problems.
Lexie F. (verified owner) –
I’ve always been a fan of hybrids, and this is my new fave. It’s got a lovely, aromatic smell, and just the peaceful high I look for from blends like this. High quality seeds that grew very well, as I’ve come to expect from Pacific Seeds. Give this one a try if you’re looking for good, relaxing pot.
London L. (verified owner) –
Pretty easy grow indoors. I tried to keep these plants close to light and nice and dry and I think that made them pretty happy because I got a pretty good yield. The plant got a little on the tall side so for a smaller set up some topping may be necessary but it was pretty straightforward. The weed itself is a really nice and vivid green hue. As far as smoking goes, I’m happy to see that there are minimal side effects with the exception of slightly dry eyes but that seems to be the only adverse effect.
Romy G. (verified owner) –
I was intrigued to find out that this weed does indeed come from japan and I knew I had to give growing it a try. I am glad I did! A great indoor grow with some seriously delicious notes of citrus, spice, and vanilla. Not hard on the nose at all! A very even keeled buzz, won’t knock you off your feet and really helps with creativity and social engagement! Such a delicious surprise and a fun way to spend an evening at home or with friends. Best online seed selection anywhere!
Kieran Q. (verified owner) –
A perfectly balanced strain that will leave you feeling extra relaxed and pain free. It’s a very dense plant, and it’s trichomes are bright green and even yellow too. I ordered online with PSB and the seeds shipped out super fast! I was really impressed by the selection and customer service as well! A great indoor grow, likes to have a controlled environment it seems, and have been smoking on the daily for months!
Kelsie F. (verified owner) –
I like the name of this strain! It’s like a ninja kush 🙂 This was really easy from seed to harvest and the buds are really really sticky! Lots of trichomes and whatnot and very leafy green! Smoking this weed is pretty great too! It makes me happy and upbeat and cheerful. Good stress reliever and I’d bet it’d be good if you’ve got depression or you’re feeling down. The ninja kush will for sure help you smile and little!
