Atomic Shiva is the local version of the popular Northern Lights strain. But it is grown in that mountainous agricultural region where drone strikes are common and the places that are safe to find growers willing to sell their extra seeds are not actually tourist friendly regions.
The Shiva strain has a strong smell of dank earth and the flavor will remind you of a strong black hash with notes of pine as well as Indian spices like cardamom and cinnamon. This weed is a heavy hitter and you can expect to be very stoned when you smoke it, with couchlock a strong possibility. Medical practitioners recommend this weed for stress, insomnia and muscular pain.
Indoors, you can cultivate Shiva in hydro but it does best in a soil growing medium using the SOG method. This plant doesn’t like to be over fertilized, so go easy with the nutrients. Flowering time is eight to nine weeks and you should achieve yields of 400 to 500 grams per square metre.
This is a robust plant so you can grow it outdoors in northern European countries as long as you plant it out in a sunny, sheltered spot. Harvest in the northern hemisphere comes in the first half of October.
Shiva marijuana is good choice for novice growers because it’s easy to cultivate, has good resistance to mold and pests, and grows well in cooler climates. Novice smokers, on the other hand, should be warned that this weed packs a potent punch.
