Kief refers to the resinous trichomes of cannabis that may accumulate in containers or be sifted from loose, dry cannabis flower with a mesh screen or sieve. Kief contains a much higher concentration of psychoactive cannabinoids, such as THC, than that of the cannabis flowers from which it is derived. Traditionally, kief has been pressed into cakes of hashish for convenience in storage, but can be vaporized or smoked in either form.
Shishkaberry, also known as “The Kish” to many members of the cannabis community, is an indica dominant hybrid (80% indica/20% sativa) strain that is a potent cross between the delicious The Red X Blueberry strains. This dank bud boasts a moderately high THC level ranging from 20-23% on average and a combination of both indica and sativa effects. Shishkaberry was the second place winner of High Times’ Cannabis Cup for best Indica in 2001 and has been a patient favorite ever since. Shishkaberry has an aroma of fresh earthy berry and a taste of fresh-picked earthy berries that sweetens upon exhale. Shishkaberry buds have dense spade-shaped dark olive green nugs with minty green leaves and undertones. These nugs are specked with furry dark amber hairs and are absolutely frosty with thick white trichomes. Users describe the Shishkaberry high as one that has an initial onset of an insanely happy and uplifting feeling that leaves you social and focused. This is followed by a lazy heavy body high that leaves you sedated before easing you into a deep and peaceful sleep. Due to these potent effects, Shishkaberry is an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease.
