The Great White Shark Strain, also known more commonly as “Peacemaker” or “White Shark” among the cannabis community, is a sativa dominant hybrid (85% sativa/15% indica) strain that is an extremely potent cross between the hugely popular Super Skunk X Brazilian X South Indian strains. Depending on how this bud is bred, it can also show tendencies towards being an indica dominant hybrid strain with a (85% indica/15% sativa) ratio. This dank bud boasts a moderate THC level that ranges from 12-15% and was the 1997 winner of the High Times’ Cannabis Cup for Best Hybrid. Users describe the Great White Shark high as having an almost immediate onset of an intense cerebral head high that leaves you feeling easily distracted and cloudy.
Great White Shark is a potent strain that is known for its ability to provide a strong indica body buzz very quickly. For this reason it’s often recommended medically to treat chronic pain ailments. The sativa qualities of this strain keep this heavy hitter from being a complete knockout, but it isn’t recommended for days when a lot of work needs to get done. Great White Shark plants grow best indoors and will flower between 8 and 10 weeks. It has a strong fruity aroma that also alludes to its Super Skunk lineage. The buds themselves should be examples of the “white” part of its moniker, with a blanket of crystals and burnt orange to brown hairs. Also known as Peacemaker or just White Shark, this strain won the 1997 High Times Cannabis Cup.
