A common parent strain to many other favorites, Skunk #1 is the true meaning of hybrid vigour with unique characteristics that provide users a stunning combination of stone and high.
Heritage: The original Skunk #1 was first released in the late 70’s by Sacred Seeds, led by Sam Skunkman and was bred by crossing with Afghani, Acapulco Gold, and Colombian Gold. It consists of 65% indica and 35% sativa genetics with incredible resin production, high bud density, and reduced flowering times.
Flavor and aroma: Skunk #1 is famed for its unique and pungent aroma that has become a benchmark for many phenotypes and hybrids throughout the years. It boosts a compelling bouquet of strong, earthy and musky dank fragrances that are supported by an array of sweet, fruity, floral and woody undertones. These odorous traits translate well into its flavor, which adds a sweet, herbal sensation to the creamy smoke as it rolls off the tongue with every exhale. The flavor and aroma will be a feast of recognition for those who consider themselves cannaisseurs.
Effect: Skunk #1 is considered a perfect embodiment of balanced hybridisation ever since its conception, dating back to the late ‘70’s. Even though it is indica-dominant (65%), the sativa genetics provide a blissful and euphoric mental high that pairs well with the overall body relaxing stoned sensation. This makes Skunk #1 a perfect strain for those moments where you want total relaxation while still remaining mentally fresh and talkative
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow Characteristics: This strain is suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation and, while it may grow well in soil or hydro, the best taste is achieved through organic soil means. It’s mostly-indica in appearance, however, it gains more height compared to pure indicas when blooming, due to its sativa genetics. The high calyx-to-leaf ratio makes it known as a natural blocker for mold, producing densely-packed, pungent, aromatic balls of herb covered in a thick blanket of trichomes.
