Winning in both the 2005 High Life Hemp Fair and 1997 High Times Cannabis Cup, the sativa cannabis strain Great White Shark is known for its quick-to-hit indica-like qualities (with one phenotype in fact an indica). It derives its name from not only this, but the thick coating of white crystal trichomes that covers its buds, producing a scent and taste much like skunk, citrus, and soil. It also goes by the name “White Shark” or “Peacemaker”.
The parent strains of Great White Shark are a mixture of the indica Super Skunk, and two sativas South American and South Indian (landrace strains).
THC levels average at 12-15%, making it a nice choice for novice consumers. Its high will cause the mind to become hazy as the body drops into a powerful stone, often couch-locking. The mind’s thoughts will drift, making this strain a good choice for lazy days, meditation, or creative endeavors at home. The mood will improve as relaxation spreads throughout the body. This strain has multiple medical uses as reported by reviewers (such as helping with migraine, headache, ADD, ADHD, PTSD, depression, and nausea).
Negative side-effects include dizziness, paranoia, or headache when consuming above one’s tolerance levels.
