For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some CBD flower from Hexo called Shark Shock. It’s an indica dominant strain and this one had just 6.09% THC and 9.78% CBD. The dominant terpene for this strain is myrcene, the whole profile is pretty complex though, as there are four other terpenes present as well: bisabolol, caryophyllene, guaiol, humulene. There is a huge appetite for CBD flower these days, as CBD in itself has become a craze, check out the rest of this Shark Shock strain review to see if this may be a strain for you!

This weed looks awesome! I was quite surprised at the freshness of the buds, as it was packaged almost an entire year before I tried it out, and Hexo doesn’t put humidity control pouches in their containers. The nugs have a very dense appearance, and they are dense as every nug bids up to a lot of weed. The buds are green with light orange pistils, and lots of trichomes. Also, all the nugs were large and round, which is always more pleasant that those little popcorn buds.
Smell 4/ 5
I noticed a very herbal aroma coming from a newly opened container. The smell is herbal and earthy, even a little minty, it gives off a very fresh scent. When burned, this strain gives off quite the earthy, skunky smell.
Taste 4 /5
I found that there are some spicy undertones that the caryophyllene gives off, but it’s very subtle. On the inhale I noticed an earthy and floral taste, with woody and herbal flavors on the exhale. Very pleasant overall, and the smoke is very smooth. Again, it gives off a fresh vibe overall from the smell to the taste.
High 4.5 /5
If you’re an everyday smoker that enjoys getting really stoned every time you smoke, you may not like this Shark Shock strain, because of the small amounts of THC and large amounts of CBD. Personally, I enjoyed it alot, and I also smoke every day. I enjoy different experiences depending on the time of the day and what I’m doing, and I find that this is really good for creativity. I’ve also enjoyed this before a work-out, it really put me in the zone in the gym. The high is subtle, but it;s not non existent, the CBD and the myrcene will make you feel very relaxed after smoking this.
Summary 4.4/ 5
I wouldn’t recommend this to someone that loves to get really baked, because it might not get your where you want to go. However, if you haven’t found a strain that gets you in the right state of mind before work or school or anything else where you need to be fully aware and functional, but you want to feel relaxed, give this Shark Shock a try. Also, I think this would be great for beginners that are just getting their feet wet. Please leave your own reviews below if you tried out this strain!
