Shiskaberry, or “Kish”, is an Indica dominant hybrid that emerged by crossing the DJ Short Blueberry variety with an unknown Afghan variety. This plant ripens within 8 to 9 weeks and should give quite a large number of inflorescences. Weed inflorescences have a fruity berry aroma and are coloured in shades of purple.
Its initial psychoactive effect creates a feeling of happiness and wellbeing, stimulating social activity, but then gives a feeling of laziness and relaxation.
It is a popular variety of marijuana in British Columbia and other areas of the Pacific Northwest.
Marijuana is very versatile in growing, being able to be successfully cultivated indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. It also grows very well in any soil or hydroponics. To achieve maximum yield indoors, most growers use the SROG growing method.
