A bit of a mysterious gal, Shishkaberry is a cross between DJ Short Blueberry and an unknown Afghani strain. Users love the smell and taste, as well as enjoying an intense high with a variety of effects.
Shishkaberry may not be best for novice users, as its THC content can max out at 26%. However, its average is a more tolerable 18%, which might allow sensitive individuals to partake in smaller amounts. Well-known for an enticing aroma and taste, your nose will be hit with a sweet and fruity berry scent. Translating seamlessly into its flavor, Shishkaberry is tasty with a slightly earthy note that balances out its sweetness. Nugs are long and dense with a shade of purple and an immense amount of frosty trichomes.

If you have things to get done, take advantage of this time now before things change. You’ll notice that your high starts to creep over your entire body, and all thought of being productive vanishes. Shishkaberry transforms into a strong sedative, urging you to be one with your couch and lulling you into a relaxed and dreamy state.

Individuals who have a hard time being productive due to their medical concerns find they can get things done thanks to this strain.

Individuals who are impatient will also love its quick flowering time, as it averages 7 to 9 weeks but can begin as early as 45 days. Despite being relatively hands off, you will want to look out for mold and pests if growing outside.
Popular in the Pacific Northwest and Canada, Shishkaberry is a strain that lifts you up before it lets you down.
