CBD Shark is one of the most popular strains on the market for its high cannabidiol levels. With CBD levels ranging from 6% to 10%, it effectively calms nerves and soothes muscles. As such, it has become a fan favorite for anxiety and pain management.
Information about CBD Shark:
The choice of using the name of a predator came from its parent Shark Shock. A hybrid notable for earthy flavors, it drowns the mind in euphoria without inducing a couch lock. Because of its high CBD levels, there is general agreement that the premium medical hybrid Cannatonic may have been the other parent. Tested up to 17%, it is among the highest in the world.

CBD Shark contains between 6% and 10% THC. Thus, it comes as no surprise that users accustomed to extremely potent strains may find it lacking. However, it does induce a subtle high that less experienced users can appreciate. Regardless, its light psychoactive property is what makes it a great companion on a slow afternoon.
CBD Shark’s onset is slow and gradual. Once it set in, an uplifting sensation begins to sweep away the negativities. Not a moment too soon later, it brightens up the mood and causes users to have an overwhelming sense of happiness.
The mild cerebral effects, though, are but a prelude to its ability to put one in complete bliss. It takes a bit of time before the body high takes effect. When it does, it is gradual but pronounced. From a gentle calming sensation, it soon puts users in complete ease. At no time is it debilitating though. While it makes one feel lazy, it will not make people feel lethargic.
For most people too, using CBD Shark also leads to a case of the munchies. If used in moderation, it should not hinder users from eating. Other than that, during the comedown, most tend to feel sleepy.
Marijuana use always makes the throat and the eyes to feel dry. Such conditions are typical and not a cause for concern. Some people, too, may feel a bit dizzy. It is most likely to occur in individuals who do not have experience using weed.
CBD Shark has one of the highest CBD values in the medical marijuana market. At 10%, it has more than enough cannabidiol concentration to be able to appease a variety of mental and physical afflictions. The strain’s psychoactive compounds then help provide more benefits.
The hybrid, having both analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties can provide a great deal of comfort. In particular, it helps reduce or eliminate discomforts such as headaches, cramps, muscle tensions, and spasms.
Thanks to its Indica structure, CBD Shark is very durable. For example, it can tolerate sudden changes in temperature. And that in itself already makes it suitable for beginners.
It is not a tall plant but may still require topping. Growers will also want to train the plant and promote lateral growth. As it stretches, regular pruning or trimming of the leaves helps with air circulation in tight areas. Consequently, the likelihood of having molds and mildew is almost nil.
Upon reaching the latter part of the flowering phase, CBD Shark will have produced pepper-shaped buds. Besides being dense, it also appears fluffy. These flowers are also covered with orange hairs and coated with amber trichomes.
CBD Shark yields 14 to 17 ounces of crystal coated buds per square meter after 8 to 9 weeks of flowering.
When grown outdoors, the plant can produce up to 21 ounces of buds each. Typically, it begins transitioning to bloom phase by the first week of October.
