Shaman is a Sativa dominant outdoor plant. In addition to a very unique look, this robust and tough outdoor variety also has an attractive terpene profile. In general, she has a fresh, sweet and spicy aroma.
The aroma can best be described as sweet, fruity, floral and spicy, with sometimes sour and pine notes. Her taste is mainly sweet and spicy, some phenotypes also have a slightly more acidic touch and others a bit more of a piney, woody character.
Due to the different phenotypes found in this strain, there is something for everyone. The green phenotypes usually taste slightly sweeter than the purple phenotype.
Shaman has colour in about 50% of the plants. This can vary from light pink/purple hues to completely purple flowers which can even show very dark, almost black, hues. This makes this lady really beautiful to see.
On certain phenotypes, the flower hairs also change to pink/purple instead of the orange, brown color usually seen in a cannabis plant. Shaman delivers good yields in a wide variety of conditions and she is the perfect choice for the outdoor grower. Thanks to the powerful parent genetics she is also very suitable for the novice grower.
Shaman is an original Dutch Passion classic that has been in the collection for several decades and is still very much loved. It is a true outdoor plant that was developed for growing in greenhouses and outdoor cultivation.
Shaman stems from a breeding program in which an early Skunk was crossed with a colourful Purple strain. This breeding program was perfected when a very robust and easy to grow outdoor variety emerged.
This reliable and very potent F1 hybrid is the result of an exceptional quality male Purple #1 and a Skunk female. It is a Sativa dominant variety with only a small proportion of Indica genes.
This makes her exceptional in high and looks, but with a fast flowering time. Shaman was originally developed as a regular seed, but is also available as feminised cannabis seeds.
Shaman is a striking, elegant plant with clear Sativa characteristics. Her structure is more open and 'stretchy', the leaves are slender and long. The buds are long with a more airy, open structure. She also has long internodes between the large buds.
About half of the plants develop a pink/purple color in the flowers, ranging from light pink to completely dark purple buds. As the season comes to an end and the temperature drops, the beautiful purple hues will emerge more and more. It is truly a beautiful plant to see and photograph.
Shaman is a perfect plant for growing in greenhouses and for outdoor cultivation. She is very resistant to bud rot and fungus. Due to her open bloom structure, she is much less bothered by this.
This does not mean that she is not susceptible, but she will cope much better with long periods of bad weather, e.g. with a lot of rain and high humidity, than most traditional (outdoor) varieties.
This lady does as well in the ground as as she does in pots. She can be grown as a guerrilla plant but also does very well in a pot on a balcony or in the backyard. Due to her Sativa-dominant character, she can grow quite large, especially if you have started pre-growing in time.
Shaman responds well to topping and fimming and this can be done several times during growth. If she still stretches too much and gets too big during flowering, you can also bend her and (super) crop her.
At Dutch latitudes, this strain needs approximately until the end of September/early October to finish flowering. In greenhouses she is ready for harvest, on average, after 7-9 weeks.
Shaman is a strong plant that has a beautiful Christmas tree structure if you let her grow naturally. However, if you top her several times, she will grow very strongly in width and you will get a beautiful bushy plant.
The plants are on average between 1-2 meters high, but with the right pre-growth they can grow to more than 3 meters both in the open ground and in (large) pots. Shaman's internode distance is medium to large.
Some blooms really get extremely large and can become solid lengths of bud between 40 and 75 cm long. A beautiful Sativa dominant lady that will amaze!
The genetics used to grow Shaman guarantee the following traits:
Shaman is a Sativa dominant cannabis strain with great hybrid potency. Her smooth sweet taste combined with a sensual up-high makes this a lovely strain to smoke.
Shaman is a very robust purple cannabis strain with a slight creative 'up-high'. The effect is instantly recognisable as that of a Sativa. The mental aspect is much stronger than the physical aspect. The high can therefore best be described as a 'head-high' instead of a 'body stone'.
The mental effect provides a more energetic, social uplifting high. Also, Shaman can produce effects causing deep, philosophical thought. It's a good choice if you're looking for a strain that will keep you active.
This is the ideal strain for a good conversation or at a party. The high is of medium strength and lasts for a medium duration/time. The smooth, sensual fruity taste brings you a wonderfully relaxed, high-quality Sativa effect.
Shaman has an average flowering time of 8 weeks. Outdoors, the flowering period lasts until the end of September/beginning of October. In greenhouses she is ready for harvest within 7-9 weeks on average. Some phenotypes are just a little faster and will be ready for harvest in 50 days, others take a little longer and can take up to 65 days to fully flower.
Despite being a hybrid cannabis plant, Shaman mainly behaves like a pure Sativa. Tall elegant plants with slender leaves and long buds. The biggest advantage of this Sativa is that the genetics makes her ideal for growing in more temperate climates.
These hybrid cannabis seeds produces long blooms like a Sativa, but with the short fast flowering time of an Indica.
Shaman averages around 1-1.5 meters in height with very slender and long Sativa dominant blooms. Because Shaman was developed as an outdoor plant and for cultivation in greenhouses, we usually speak less about the yield per m2. But to give an estimate anyway, this yield is about 400g/m2.
Shaman performs best outdoors and mainly in greenhouses, where yields of several hundred grams per plant are possible, even for novice growers. Plants here are on average between 2-3 meters tall.
The bigger the pot and the longer the growth phase lasts, the bigger the plant can eventually grow. In the hands of an experienced grower, yields of around 500-750 grams per plant are possible.
Shaman is a strong Sativa dominant outdoor strain that is easy to grow. She is a vigorous plant that can grow very quickly in the right conditions. If you want to limit her height somewhat, you can use different growing techniques to achieve this. You can bend, snap, crop & super crop her.
It is also possible to grow this lady in a SCROG, both outdoors and in a greenhouse. If you grow Shaman in a colder and wet climate, it is recommended to defoliate her at the end of the growth phase. This ensures that there is less chance of dead leaves that can get stuck in the buds, increasing the possibility of mold.
This variety will produce very good yields if grown with a little love. It is the perfect choice for the outdoor and greenhouse grower looking for strong robust genetics. Shaman does not produce cannabis that will knock you out completely, it is a wonderfully relaxed Sativa high that will make you social, creative and active. Because of the stimulating properties Shaman is also very suitable to use during the day.
