Shiva Shanti Regular by Sensi Seeds
Shiva Shanti Regular is 85% indica, so the high she produces is strong and soothing to the body. She is an affordable, easy-to-grow strain that grows medium in size and does well in sunny climates. Growers often enjoy its sweet and sour aroma and pungent, skunky flavor, as well as the high yields it provides without much effort.
Shiva Shanti Regular Growing Principles
Shiva Shanti Regular marijuana seeds have indica-dominant genetics (85%, to be exact). Developed in the 1990s to celebrate the founding of Sensi Seed Bank, the strain is the product of a cross between an Afghan plant called Garlic Bud and a classic Kush strain.
This is a regular version of the strain, making it the preferred choice for growers who want to produce their own seeds. In this package, the seeds produce both male and female plants. The regular seeds are also suitable for those who want to cross with other varieties.
Shiva Shanti Regular has a relatively short flowering time of only 50 to 55 days. This means that growers can reach the harvest stage quite quickly. Thanks to their indica genetics, the plants do not tend to reach great heights. When grown indoors, their growth can be limited to 100 to 160 cm. Outdoors, these numbers increase, reaching 190 to 200 cm on average.
Structurally, the plants are quite leafy, with narrow, dark leaves. They can have a squat appearance, with a thick central stem. Most flowers are formed around the stem and are usually large and dense. They have a hard feel and are often spear-shaped. Growers report that they get bountiful harvests with Shiva Shanti Regular without having to expend much effort. Yields average 500 grams per square meter when grown indoors and 500 grams per plant when grown outdoors.
This strain thrives especially well in warm, sunny climates, such as the Mediterranean region. Due to its Kush ancestry, plants are usually ready for harvest in late September or early October. It can also be grown indoors (year-round) or in a greenhouse. The medium height means that low ceilings are not a problem.
The growing techniques of supercropping and lollipopping are both effective with Shiva Shanti Regular and give good results. However, most growers can get substantial harvests without too much effort.
Effect, taste and smell of Shiva Shanti Regular
Shiva Shanti Regular is an indica-dominant strain, which shows in the high. It is a strong, physical high that is calming and soothing and also improves the physical senses, as reported by users. The 15% sativa influence adds an uplifting note to the high.
The plants do not produce much odor, which is useful for those who want to grow them inconspicuously. However, they do produce some aroma that is usually sweet and sour, with a hint of Skunk. After curing, the smell is less noticeable, but the skunky taste is still evident.
