Skunk #1 Genetics
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.
Skunk #1 Effects
Skunk #1 is considered a perfect embodiment of balanced hybridisation ever since its conception, dating back to the late ’70s. 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.
Skunk #1 Terpene Profile
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 flavour, which adds a sweet, herbal sensation to the creamy smoke as it rolls off the tongue with every exhale. The flavour and aroma will be a feast of recognition for those who consider themselves cannaisseurs.
Medical Benefits Skunk #1
In smaller doses, Skunk #1 could be used to help reduce nausea and vomiting relief, allowing users to regain their appetites after strenuous treatments or gastrointestinal upsets. In higher doses, due to its CBD content, it could help with movement disorders like Arthritis and MS. Mentally, Skunk #1 may ease feelings of chronic stress by eliminating negative thoughts and relaxing you without making the body feel heavy.
How to Grow Skunk #1
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 mould, producing densely-packed, pungent, aromatic balls of herb covered in a thick blanket of trichomes.
