For this cannabis strain review review, I tried out some Shishkaberry made by Hexo, when it comes to flavor and aroma, it’s definitely up there. This is a hybrid strain with a pretty low amount of THC at about 12.7% and 0.7% CBD, and it’s main 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.
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 many nice sized nugs in the 3.5 grams that I purchased, very firm as well. The myrcene terpenes really stand out in the appearance of this weed as there is a blueish/purpleish 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 amazing. It’s a sweet and fruity type of smell, it actually reminded me of berries (maybe the name is messing with my brain, or maybe they named it Shishkaberry because of how it smells (outside the lineage)…I guess we’ll never know.) The smell on this weed really stood out to me compared to many other strains, especially from a freshly sealed package, it’s a very refreshing aroma, and probably my favorite part of this Shishkaberry strain review. Once the buds were bid up, the smell became even more intense with the citrusy after tones coming out.
Very nice tasting weed, I found it to be so sweet and fruity, completely different than 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 kinda dry, I really enjoyed the taste overall, it was very pleasant.
The high was great on this strain, as you may know from some passed reviews, I’m not the biggest fan of the “glued to the couch” type of high, this is far from that. I had a lot of energy and was feeling pretty euphoric. but I had zero feeling of paranoia or anxiety after smoking this. The munchies weren’t really present with this strain, I actually felt it kinda cut my appetite actually, but that may be different with everyone.
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 great as well.
