This is the strain that changed cannabis cultivation. The potency of this branch of the cannabis family tree is so notorious that ‘skunk’ is often used as a term for any powerful ganja.
Skunk #1’s energetic performance and bountiful yields demonstrate the true meaning of hybrid vigor. Growth and flowering are mostly-Indica in appearance, though Skunk plants gain more height than pure Indicas when blooming.
The extra-dark green of this strain’s foliage comes from her Afghan ancestors.
The Original Skunk was made from Acapulco Gold or Mexican Sativa, Afghani Indica and Columbian Gold Sativa to pave way for great taste and Sativa high experience. For the first time, this strain provided growers with the good taste and high of a Sativa coupled with the quick heavy flowering of an Indica. It is very easy to grow and has always been seen as a standard against which others can be measured. It produces dense buds varying in color from light green to golden with a high yield. It is easy to manicure due to its high bud-to-leaf ratio. It has a sweet smell and taste with a cerebral high.
