However, it is often exaggerated how difficult Sativas can be, which is certainly not the case. Longer flowering times ensure heavier harvests. The Sativa effects and effect is unparalleled by any Indica dominate plant and there is a reason that there are so many Sativa lovers, including Sannie himself.
Shackzilla is a forgiving plant that can withstand unexperienced handling and therefore suitable for beginning growers. But this strain is also very popular among the experienced growers because of its’ typical haze taste and smell combined with high yield and ready to flower in 11 weeks. There’s a reason she is in our top 5 of best-selling varieties. The stability of the plants makes Shackzilla suitable for use in larger formats with a small amount of pheno types, in other words they all resemble each other.
The first type that Sannie sold was the Sannie's Jack in 2006 followed by the Shack (Shiva X Sannie's Jack) and for years we sold these strains as regular seed. We used the Shack to cross with our SuperSilverHaze for more potency and higher THC content. Since both parents are relatively stable strains, the plants that come from them all look alike, Small differences aside since every seed of course is its’ own individual.

Due to the higher Sativa percentage in the Shackzilla, these plants have enormous growth potential which should be taken into account. The plants like to be tipped, have their lower branches removed or to be tied up in a net also called SCROG, they can easily be tied to a net so that any height deficit is caught.
The flowering period is around 11 weeks and those 11 weeks are utilized to produce massive large buds. When, depending on the hours of light, the plant gets the signal that it is time to bloom the Shackzilla will grow for at least 4-5 weeks before the first buds become visible. This also depends on the pot size that is used for the plant, the larger the pot the longer the growth period.
