Great White Shark
Created in the Netherlands, Great White Shark weed is an Indica dominant product of crossbreeding Super Skunk with strains from Brazil and South India. It’s been around for quite a few years, proving its pedigree back in 1997 when it finished second overall in the High Times Cannabis Cup as well as second in the Bio section.
The smell of Great White Shark cannabis is reminiscent of forest glades and freshly turned earth, and the flavor is smooth with a sweetish edge. After smoking it you’ll experience a typical Indica high; a heavy body stone with narcotic and sedative cerebral effects. This is a great evening smoke for relaxing with your favorite music or a movie. Medical dispensaries recommend it for sleeplessness and muscular pain.
Great White Shark seeds produce plants of short to medium height that are quite bushy with broad palmate leaves, mid-green in colour, turning darker as the plant matures. The dense buds are roundish and covered in orange hairs. THC levels have been measured as high as 17.9 percent in the lab.
The strain thrives with the SOG growing method using a hydroponic setup. Flowering time is eight to nine weeks and yields are very healthy, as high as 800 grams per square metre.
This plant will succeed in colder northern European climates. Plant it in a soil enriched with composts in a spot that gets as much sunlight as possible. Harvest comes in early to mid-October and each plant can yield up to one kilogram.
If you’re looking for a plant that will produce abundant harvests of a very potent weed, think about choosing Great White Shark weed. Its scary name reflects the fact that novice smokers should approach this weed with caution.

Great White Shark Strain – Everything you need to know and more!
Great White Shark was considered to be very potent in its heyday. Although it’s not considered to be super potent by today’s standards, that doesn’t mean it should be brushed aside as a weak strain. It was created by the legendary breeders Green House Seeds, who are based in Amsterdam. If you’ve seen the Vice documentary on Youtube where the group of growers tries to find some of the rarest landrace strains in existence, then that’s who these guys are. Great White Shark is another classic example of a landrace cross strain, which brings together two or more landrace strains to create one dank strain. It was first bred in 1995 and won the entire 1997 High Times Cannabis Cup competition for best marijuana strain. Needless to say it’s a classic that all stoners should get to know!
This strain is sometimes called Blue Shark Strain, Shark Weed, Great White Weed, Shark Flower, or Shark Dab.

Great White Shark strain genetics
A landrace strain is one of the original strains that grow naturally on the earth. It’s like eating an apple straight from the tree instead of making it into apple juice. Which is tastier – the apple or the juice – depends on the user. Some people prefer simpler landrace crosses, others prefer the frankly rather crazy dankenstein strains. Whichever you prefer, you can rest assured that this is a great strain, as it was created by master growers for their clients.

Great White Shark strain taste
Although the taste of this strain isn’t exactly akin to something like Girl Scout Cookies, which was bred for its taste, that does not mean the taste is going to be terrible. If you want to fully experience the taste of any strain then you should get your flower vape out and give it a puff inside this. Even better would be to first grind up the strain, allowing for the flavor and potency to be fully released.
Great White Shark strain oil, wax, shatter, edibles, etc.
Great White Shark is an excellent choice for those to concentrate connoisseurs out there. That is because it is literally covered head to toe in trichomes and has a very large yield. These two key characteristics are things that every concentrate maker in the world looks for. Not only this, but this strain grows in only 8 weeks, making it a perfect choice. However, making your own Butane Hash Oil is considered to be very dangerous, so please exercise caution.
Surf's up! Great White Shark is a classic, indica-dominant landrace strain. Winner of the 1997 High Times Cannabis Cup competition for best marijuana strain, Great White is a classic that any true stoner should at least familiarize themselves with.
