Shangri-La was initially crafted by JinxProof Genetics and is now managed by TGA Genetics, and her sativa-dominant effects are loved far and wide. After all, how could the cross between Fudo Myo-o and 9 Pound Hammer not be incredible?
THC takes on a fairly middle of the road role here, with an average 21% content taking both new and experienced users on a fun ride. Buds of Shangri-La are lovely with a dense structure, furry appearance, and amber trichomes all creating an appealing look. Both flavors and aromas are certainly a bit unusual, with berry, skunk, tropical fruit, and citrus all mingling to create an exotic experience.
Imagine how you might feel on your own personal island getaway and translate that into the high that Shangri-La brings. Initially, an intense euphoria lifts your mind to a place of excited creativity, and while some find they can focus quite well, others are overtaken by sheer cerebral strength. Artistic endeavors become easy here, and while your mind is soaring your body will begin to relax and become slightly heavy. Given the nicely balanced set of effects this strain brings, you’ll neither feel weighted nor fully functional - in fact, it will feel like you’re on vacation.
Most medical users find that Shangri-La helps immensely with mental concerns including depression, stress, anxiety, and much more. Bodily issues certainly don’t take a backseat here, but it’s apparent that cerebral relief is more readily available. Nonetheless, if you suffer from pain, inflammation, or even fatigue, you may find this strain can help you to get through the day a bit easier.
Growing your own Shangri-La isn’t a tall task once you’re able to find seeds, and according to TGA, the strain is either discontinued or out of stock for the foreseeable future. While home growers may find seeds from other online retailers, it pays to make sure the source you’re purchasing from is reputable. Those lucky enough to get their hands on true Shangri-La seeds will do best to plant her in areas that offer a lot of space as she can sometimes reach 8 feet in height. After 8 to 9 weeks of flowering, you’ll be ready to harvest.
As mythical as the novel entails, this strain with the same name may be challenging to locate. But much like your own secret getaway, the search will be worth it, allowing you to feel happy, relaxed, and focused all at once. Share some Shangri-La with friends and see if you can’t get a fun art project under your belt.
