This cross between Skunk #1 and Northern Lights #5 is a very reliable variety. Excellent hybrid vigour and yield make this one a snap to grow. Works superbly indoors as well as in a greenhouse. Taste and high are similar to Skunk #1, a rich sweet pungency, but with more resin and better yield. High calyx-to-leaf ratio, you can almost throw those scissors away as very little manicuring is required. An absolute must for beginners or experts.
I know that Nevil's Nl#5 was the seed mother for the "Shiva Skunk cross. He never offered NL#5 as a pure strain etc. As for Basic 5 being the same as NL #5, well, I'm taking Mr. Soul?s word for it. (Due to previous work experience etc.) One thing I can add is that I remember the original Skunks having a much more powerful stone than most of the skunks today. It may be just a fond memory but I recall having an underlying buzz or bell sound going off in my head after smoking skunks (10 years or so ago). Perhaps this is why it is such an attractive strain for some. I'm not saying that today?s shiva skunk is not as good as 10 years ago. I don't know this for a fact. I've only grown Nevil's, not Sensi's.
T's friend has an original Basic 5, this would be a rare treat. "The resin Mother that started it all' so to speak.
I would suggest Sensi Seed's "Shiva Skunk" (NL#5 X SK#1). Very close nodes, sweet, fragrant smoke. Great yield and it will finish in about 55 days. Very high calyx to leaf ratio. Great resin production. I grew this strain for 4 years in a SOG format and I was very, very impressed. Very easy to grow, cloning is a breeze. Only problem I had is that after about 3 years the high started to get a little weaker and the yields did go down slightly. It just seemed to lose some of its vigor. So if you used it for 2 years or so, it could very well be what you are looking for.
The most potent I have had to date is probably Shiva Skunk, a close relative of Silver Pearl. This variety is hallucinogenic. Not to be smoked if you have to operate any machinery within the next several hours. ? Hyde
