This strain was named after the Hindu god Shiva, otherwise known as The Destroyer. The name is strangely apt when considering this amazing strain, it is possibly the strongest Indica strain available on the market. It was originally released in 1987 as NL#5 x SK#1, this working-title peaked the interest of cannabis-lovers everywhere as the two parent-plants are two of the most famous and impressive strains around. These strains have been used before to create some rather impressive strains but this exact combination was certainly an exciting and noteworthy event in the cannabis community. The reputation of this strain certainly preceded it and it spread across growers and breeders everywhere like wild fire and was considered to be the next step up in cannabis breeding. The primary attributes that this strain gained from its parent-plants are its buds, Northern Lights #5 gave it bulky buds covered in a layer of resin. It is also a vigorous strain with an excellent yield despite its compact size.
This strain is sold in the form of regular seeds, regular seeds are still extremely popular amongst growers and breeders everywhere. Many believe that regular seeds have been squeezed out of the market by auto-flowering and feminised seeds, but Sensi likes to ensure that they provide for all types of customer. Regular seeds are most popular amongst old-school breeders because of their simplicity, uniformity, resilience, and the options that they provide. Regular seeds grow into a roughly 50/50 split of male and female plants which means that the breeders can select the very best male and female to breed. Thus they can ensure that only the best genes are passed on to the offspring, meaning that through the generations the crops will only increase in quality and uniformity. They are also extremely independent, they have often been used by those who would wish to reintroduce cannabis into the wild. They can breed, grow, and thrive completely on their own as long as they are in the correct environment.
This particular cannabis cup winning strain thrives in temperate or continental environment. It is a compact plant with a heavy yield that is 85% Indica. It also enjoys a short flowering period of 45 - 55 days.
