Shiatsu, also known more commonly as “Shiatsu Kush” to most of the cannabis community, is an award-winning indica dominant hybrid (85% indica/15% sativa) strain created by breeders at the infamous BC Bud Depot in Japan. Shiatsu has unknown genetics due to breeder secrecy and is infamous for winning gold at Japan’s secret JCA Awards and for being named to High Times’ Top 10 Strains of 2012 list. This dank bud boasts an average THC level that ranges from 12-15% and a high CBD level that ranges from 1.5-3% on average. Users describe the Shiatsu high as a happy and aggressively energetic head high that hits you hard and lingers for a long period of time. This leaves you stimulated and focused, before you fade into a potent relaxing body high that offers substantial pain relief and leaves you in a dreamy state of bliss. Oftentimes you’ll feel so relaxed that you’ll almost immediately fall into a deep sleep. This bud is ideal for treating conditions such as chronic stress and chronic pain. Shiatsu buds have a sweet vanilla pine aroma and a taste of sweet vanilla pine with a cedar hint upon exhale. These buds have fluffy hairy dark olive green grape-shaped nugs with thin amber hairs and rich purple undertones. These nugs are dusted with a fine layer of thick chunky white trichomes and sweet sticky resin.
