Strain Name: Shiva X
Genetics: Shiva crossed with an unknown sativa
Type: Indica dominant hybrid
Looks: Big, slightly lumpy, light green buds. Loads of orange hairs and trichomes.
Smell: Strong, clean fruit smell. The slightest hint of pine and spice.
Taste: Very mild smoke in the throat and lungs, with a slightly spicy taste and heavy tingles in the nose that lasted for some time after exhaling.
Effects: Fast-acting and strong medicine. First, a big head rush with strong euphoric sensations and a distinct increase in heart-rate that some users may find uncomfortable. This is the “kick” that initially caused the growers to want to call this strain “Chuck Norris.” But someone got a little paranoid (an understandable side-effect) and was afraid of being sued by Chuck’s lawyer’s, or of getting their ass kicked by Chuck, or something like that, so it doesn’t really have a name. Anyhow, it’s excellent medicine that will leave even high-tolerance patients energetic and up for a couple of hours. It eventually mellows out into a lazy and thoughtful buzz, but never leaves you feeling drowsy – even after heavy consumption.
Potency: High potency. Not recommended for new patients or those with heart or blood pressure issues.

Good Strain For: Depression. ADD. Narcolepsy.
Notes: Shiva, the indica parent of this strain, is supposedly known for it’s pronounced drowsy effects. This medicine is the polar opposite. In fact, the only trait that seems to have been passed along from the Shiva parent is the incredible potency. This seems rather appropriate given the dual nature of this strain’s namesake, the Hindu god Shiva, both the destroyer and the giver of life.
