While Shiva Skunk cannabis seeds don’t contain the power to destroy evil, they do possess the power to produce a near-pure indica that has a reputation for vanquishing stress.
Named for the Hindu deity known as the destroyer of evil, and whom some say was also a loyal cannabis user, Shiva Skunk is the resultant cross of luminary parent strains Northern Lights No. 5 and Skunk No. 1, hence its original name of NL#5xSK#1 when it was first introduced to the world in 1987. That there’s a mouthful.
