Doctor Shive is a Sativa dominant strain from the breeders at Flash Seeds. It is a combination of Garhwali Shiva, AK 47 and Stitch 0.2. These genetics came from plants which naturally grow in the most remote mountains of Northern India. This strain is impressively hardy due to the influence of the original Garhwali Shiva strain, it is capable of withstanding the harsh and high altitude climate of the Himalayas. It has an extremely high concentration of CBD which makes it an excellent medicinal strain for daily use.
It has a euphoric, happy and relaxing effect making it ideal as a painkiller, for those who suffer from stress, anxiety and depression and for those suffering from muscle issues. The scent of the plant is an enchanting combination of citrus and spicy pepper. The plant also produces elongated flowers which are extremely resistant to mould.
This strain is both autoflowering and feminised which means that it is extremely user friendly. Autoflowering strains will flower automatically rather than as a result of a specific light cycle. This can make the growing process far easier for novice growers. This also means that they skip a section of the flowering process known as the vegetative period. Skipping this period means that the flowering time is shorter than that of other plants. Autoflowering strains also have a more impressive yield and can grow to a much shorter height without losing any of this yield. This makes them ideal for indoor and stealth growing.
Feminised strains will only grow into female plants which is ideal for growers. Growers have no need for the male plants and so they are simply a waste of time, space and effort. The growers usually have to remove the male plants at the start of the flowering process to ensure that they do not harm the female plants. Since around half of the plants would be male this is a huge waste of time and money. Feminised plants are also of a generally higher level of quality and uniformity than regular seeds.
Doctor Shiva can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse. It has a flowering period of 100 - 120 days from seed and a yield of up to 500 g/plant.
