British author James Hilton in 1933 wrote about a place in the western end of Kunlun Mountains, he described it as a utopia of some sort, where nature and men lived in harmony, and nothing was short of perfection, he called this mythical place Shangri-La. Close to a century later, this utopia remains a longing for most of us – an existence of peace and tranquility (perfection). This quest continues to shape our activities till date and is the major influence in the naming of the Shangri-La cannabis strain
How Shangri-La Strain Is Made
Today, Shangri-La Strain is bred by JinxProof Genetics, using a cross parent strain of Fudo Myo-o and 9 Pound Hammer. This hybrid 60/40 Sativa-dominant plant is currently propagated and distributed by the seeds bank only and unfortunately, does not seem to be currently available.
Fragrance And Aroma
The Shangri-La strain is a garden of different aromas ranging from ripe grape and berry to tropical mango and citrus, which all combine for an overall skunky and sweet flavor.
Shangri-La Strain Effects
Shangri-La is named after the mystical place described in James Hilton’s book “Lost Horizon.” And that’s because it provides a cerebral experience like none to users. It produces an out of body experience of happiness, creativity, euphoria, and relaxation. Although there is a very high amount of THC present in the strain, its effects are intense yet not overwhelming. However, this is based on the assumption that people use it well within limits.
Due to its varying effects and benefits, the Shangri-La strain continues to be a suitable solution to a varying number of ailments, medical conditions, and symptoms. Overall, Shangri-La is considered most suitable for helping with the relief of pain, stress, and inflammation, muscle spasms, and nausea.
Patients who frequently use Shangri-La may experience the following symptoms: dry eyes, dry mouth, and headache. If you notice any of the above symptoms, be sure to stay hydrated and drink plenty of fluids. Please note that the information on observable symptoms are the average and can be significantly different from user to user.
Shangri-La Seeds are currently unavailable for distribution; however, expert growers expect this strain to thrive both indoors or outdoors. This hybrid is also expected not to be more than 8 feet tall as it follows the Indica structure more. It has more lateral branching and can produce an average amount of buds under the hands of expert growers.
