Exhale as you enter a state of alert relaxation, this strain is great for mind and body relief. With Shangrila one experiences a variation of sweet flavors including fruity grape and lemon-mango, to light coffee and spicy notes.

Many medical patients appreciate Shangrila for its ability to suppress pain and relieve stress, while connoisseurs and growers alike admire this strain for its outstanding plant structure and high levels of frosty resin content.

Phenotypes: The first, most recognizable pheno is more bushy than stretchy with an indica-like structure. This pheno often displays chunky nuggets densely coated in trichomes resting atop dark purple foliage. The impressively firm flowers ooze when harvested. The second notable pheno has obvious stretch early on, so a healthy topping in both vegging and flowering cycles are recommended. This pheno can exhibit a plethora of epic pineapple shaped colas containing violet colored pistils peppered in dense, light green buds. Shangrila is a great terpene producer for extraction lovers.
