Skunk is one of the oldest hybrids around and has always remained a favourite in cannabis culture. It was the first hybrid to be completely stable and first came into being in the 1970s before being released in Holland. Immediately it became one of the favourite strains of growers and breeders across the world. It has a potent but happy high and a long lasting yet cerebral effect.
Its genetic background is made up of three strains: Afghani, Columbian Gold and Acapulco Gold. These strains together make quite the potent mixture as well as creating a tasty and aromatic smoke. It is Sativa dominant and has a delightfully short flowering period, for its type it produces impressive yields. Skunk’s cultivation has been painstakingly performed over a number of years, these days just the word ‘Skunk’ is synonymous with good quality weed.
This strain is perfect for novices and experts alike due to its easy to grow nature and its amazing results. The only issue, for some growers, is the powerful smell that comes hand in hand with Skunk; it didn’t get that name for nothing. When grown it will need a good amount of ventilation and outdoors it can really give itself away.
Skunk can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse and will produce high yields under any growth set up.
