Shiskaberry, also known as “The Kish” to many members of the cannabis community, is an indica dominant hybrid (80% indica/20% sativa) strain that is a potent cross between the delicious The Red X Blueberry strains. This dank bud boasts a moderately high THC level ranging from 18-26% on average and a combination of both indica and sativa effects.
Shiskaberry was the second place winner of High Times’ Cannabis Cup for best Indica in 2001 and has been a patient favorite ever since. Shiskaberry has an aroma of fresh earthy berry and a taste of fresh-picked earthy berries that sweetens upon exhale. Shiskaberry buds have dense spade-shaped dark olive green nugs with minty green leaves and undertones.
These nugs are specked with furry dark amber hairs and are absolutely frosty with thick white trichomes. Users describe the Shiskaberry high as one that has an initial onset of an insanely happy and uplifting feeling that leaves you social and focused. This is followed by a lazy heavy body high that leaves you sedated before easing you into a deep and peaceful sleep. Due to these potent effects, Shiskaberry is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease.
