For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Shishkaberry made by Hexo; it’s up there when it comes to flavor and aroma. This is an Indica-dominant hybrid cultivar with a pretty low THC amount at 12.7% and a negligible amount of CBD. Its primary terpene is myrcene, but you can really taste and smell the ocimene as well. Hexo did a very solid job with this one; you can see a more detailed breakdown below. Shishkaberry came about by crossing DJ Short Blueberry with an unknown Afghani strain.
Terpene Profile: Myrcene, caryophyllene, ocimene, pinene, humulene
Packaging Details: This was packaged on 06/19/19 and tested reviewed on 12/29/2019, exactly 193 days after being packaged.
Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $23.90 at the SQDC in Montreal, QC ($6.83/Gram)
There were a few decent sized nugs in the 3.5 grams container, very firm as well. The myrcene terpenes stand out in this weed appearance as there is a blueish/purple-ish shade surrounding a nice light green color, with light orange pistils. The nugs were very dense; they break up to a nice amount of weed. What I wasn’t a fan of is the dryness of the nugs, inside and out, and they were pretty leafy as well. There were a whole lot of crystals on the buds, leaving your fingers nice and sticky after bidding up some of this Shishkaberry.
I found that this weed smells excellent. It’s a sweet and fruity type of smell; it reminded me of berries (maybe the name is messing with my brain, or perhaps they named it Shishkaberry because of how it smells (outside the lineage) I guess we’ll never know.) The smell on this weed stood out to me compared to many other strains; it’s a very refreshing aroma and probably my favorite part of this entire Shishkaberry strain review. Once the buds were bid up, the smell became even more intense with the citrusy after tones coming out.
It was some very nice tasting weed; I found it to be so sweet and fruity, utterly different from most of the other strains I’ve tried. The myrcene is present in the taste because the after taste is a little citrusy, and the smoke was very smooth. The joint burned nice and slow even though the buds were somewhat dry; I enjoyed the taste overall; it was very pleasant.
The high was great on this strain; as you may know from some past reviews, I’m not the biggest fan of the “glued to the couch” high, this is far from that. I had a lot of energy and was feeling pretty euphoric. But I had zero feelings of paranoia or anxiety after smoking this. The munchies weren’t present with this strain, I thought it kinda cut my appetite actually, but that may be different with everyone. It lasted about 30 minutes, which made me finish this whole batch real fast.
I would recommend this strain to beginners and everyday smokers, don’t get me wrong though, although there was only 13% THC, you will definitely get high especially if you don’t smoke often. I wouldn’t suggest this for insomnia, but it’s really a nice “pick me up” type of strain. I’d recommend this for a nice evening with friends, whether you’re at home or out doing an activity. If you’re by yourself, I find this strain would help with creativity, or would make a funny movie even funnier. I would buy this again, for sure, and the price point is decent as well.
