Mango Skunk Strain Genetics
Nirvana crossed the ever-popular 60’s strain Mango, for its sweet and fruity flavour, with Venus Flytrap (itself a mix of Special Skunk and Jock Horror) to balance that sweetness with a deep, rich, dank quality. This indica-dominant strain is a little trickier to grow than others, but still produces juicy, frosty nugs and a blissed-out effect.
Mango Skunk Strain Terpene Profile
Mango Skunk has a well-rounded flavour with myrcene one of the most prominent terpenes found here. Juicy and fruity, and boasting the flavours of her sativa heritage (some Jock Horror and Skunk Special) Mango Skunk is a tropical cocktail of a strain. And there’s no doubt this cocktail packs a punch with her fruitiness counterbalanced by an earthy, cinnamon spice richness (thanks to her Dad). The aroma is light and pleasant; delicious
Mango Skunk Strain Effects
The sativa genes are also clearly present in the effect. For a mainly indica strain Mango Skunk is very uplifting, active and energetic. She is long-lasting and strong, so don’t let the gorgeous flavour make you binge at the outset. With THC levels upwards of 15% she will give you a nice, deep body-buzz too.
Medical Benefits Mango Skunk Strain
Not a specifically medical strain but Mango Skunk does lift mood and provides a deep body- buzz, that could be helpful for those dealing with chronic pain, stress or anxiety. She is a strong strain, with upwards of 15% THC, so you’re going to feel medicated; more of an evening strain than a daytime one. Intriguingly, drinking mango juice is said to heighten the flavour and effects of the terpene myrcene, which is also thought to have some pain-relieving properties.
How to Grow Mango Skunk Strain
There are three different phenotypes for this strain, two come out as bushy, easy-going indica plants and one comes out lankier and sativa looking. You will need to know how to handle taller plants (and have space for them) just in case you get one of the little sister variety.
On the upside she is pretty quick to flower, averaging 9 – 11 weeks to full maturity, when (under ideal conditions) she will produce a large yield of very frosty bud. She’s best suited to an indoor (SOG) grow, especially in cooler climates.
