The cannabis strain Shaman is a sativa that produces pepper-shaped buds when ready for harvest that emit a scent that’s sweet, spicy, and often floral. Its taste is quite similar having undertones of pine.
Shaman first blossomed under the care of Dutch Passion Farms in Amsterdam. Its genetics stem from crossing the indica Purple #1 and the hybrid Skunk #1.
THC levels range anywhere between 12-18%, so checking its potency before consuming/purchasing is a must. Its high has been used by reviewers to help with anxiety and depression due to its ability to improve mood quickly simultaneously relaxing the body. Though aches and pains will subside, Shaman can also increase energy levels. Some have noted this strain can seem psychedelic, placing the consumer in a meditative trance that’s often introspective - thus its name. As the high wears down after a couple of hours, a sedative state may arise.
Negative side-effects include dizziness, paranoia, or headache when improper doses have been consumed. Dry eyes and mouth are normal.
