Shark Bite Strain

Great White Shark is an impressive Sativa-dominant strain. It has an uplifting buzz that zaps negativity in an instant. At the same time, its ability to clear the mind inspires a creative streak in enthusiasts looking for a break. Moreover, it has a short flowering period and a heavy trichome production.

Archive Seed Bank decided to cross it with a Face Off OG backcross to add sturdiness to its structure. Moreover, its heavy Indica buzz enhanced Great White Shark’s stress-crushing qualities. Its couch locking side effects are also mitigated by the latter.

Resulting from the cross is Shark Bite. Its balanced mix ensures users can choose between a soothing body buzz that is perfect for a relaxing night. Meanwhile, its stimulating head high provokes thoughtful thinking and creativity.

One thing to remember about Shark Bite is that it is highly potent. With THC levels to impress, its psychoactive compounds of 18% to 24% can overwhelm the mind. Beginners may want to use this strain under the guidance of a seasoned friend.

      Although it prefers a temperate climate, Shark Bite has no problem growing in the cooler regions of the northern hemisphere. It will need protection against the extreme cold and snow which can kill the plant overnight or stunt its growth. Heavy rains may also pose a problem as it can break the branches off and growers may lose important buds. A temporary enclosing is usually enough to protect the batch against the harsh weather conditions.

      Alternatively, growers can move it indoors where factors such as lighting, temperature, and humidity are easier to adjust. It will need to be pruned and topped to not only keep it short but also allow air circulation in the lower nodes. Pairing it with either the Sea or Screen of Green method will encourage bud production. The former maximizes space while the latter levels the canopy for better light distribution.

      Mediums like hydroponics will double yields and hasten the flowering period. However, for growers looking to produce delicious buds, soil is a better option.
