The Shishkaberry strain is a hybrid of the Indica-dominant DJ Short Blueberry and an unknown Afghani strain. Also known as “Kish,” this strain originated in the early 2000s in Canada. Shishkaberry plants are short and bushy, with dark green leaves and purple hues.
The positive effects of Shishkaberry include relaxation, happiness, and sleepiness. Other users are reported to have experienced dry mouth, eyes, and couch-lock. This strain is recommended for evening or nighttime use.
Medical benefits of the Shishkaberry strain include relief from pain, stress, anxiety, and depression. It’s also known to help with insomnia, lack of appetite, and headaches.
Adverse side effects are rare but can include paranoia, anxiety, and dizziness. Although these side effects are uncommon, it’s always best to start with a low dose and increase gradually as needed.
The THC content ranges from 16-23%, which makes it a moderately potent strain. The CBD content is typically low, around 0.1%. Growing can take 8-9 weeks, and the yield is high. You can plant this strain indoors or outdoors.
If you plant it indoors, ensure that you have enough space as the plant can grow up to 3 feet tall. When planting outdoors, choose a sunny spot with well-drained soil. This strain is resistant to mold and pests, making it easy to care for.
Water your plants when the top inch of the soil is dry. Add organic matter to the soil to improve drainage. Fertilize your plants every two weeks using a balanced fertilizer.
Harvest your Shishkaberry buds when they’re light green with hints of purple. The trichomes should be frosty and opaque. Trim away large leaves and hang the buds upside down in a dark, humid room to dry. Once they’re dry, store your buds in an airtight container in a cool, dark place.
The Shishkaberry strain is an excellent choice for beginners and experienced growers alike. With its high yield and easy-to-grow nature, it’s sure to please anyone who tries it.
