Super Skunk first appeared on the market in 1990 in Amsterdam, and almost immediately went on to take the first prize in the Mostly Indica section of that year’s High Times Cannabis Cup. In 1992, it went on to place third in the overall Cannabis Cup. Genetically, it’s a hybrid of an Indica from Afghanistan and Skunk #1, an earlier generation of skunk.
The hit from Super Skunk combines a pleasantly laid-back body stone with intellectual stimulation characterised by a heady mental buzz. The weed burns with a powerful skunk aroma and has an earthy flavor with hints of fruity citrus. Medical qualities include the suppression of nausea, appetite stimulation and pain relief.
Super Skunk seeds produce plants of medium height, around 100 to 150 centimetres, with large colas set on thick stems with dark green leaves. The buds are very dense, almost round in shape and emanate a typically strong skunky smell that is difficult to hide. THC content is in the medium range for a skunk strain, varying from 10 to 15 percent.
Super Skunk seeds are easy to grow and offer high yields of up to 500 grams per square metre when grown indoors using SOG or SCROG with hydroponics. Greenhouse growing in a medium of rich compost is also recommended for this strain. Indoors this quick growing plant has a flowering time of about six to seven weeks while greenhouse harvest comes in late September or October.
Super Skunk has been a favorite with growers, both beginners and experienced, for more than two decades and its notable qualities include high yield, speed of growth and consistency. It’s also highly prized for its powerful yet manageable stone, and for these reasons, this Super Skunk review highly recommends it.
