Super Skunk is an Indica dominant hybrid that was first bred by Nevil Schoenmakers, the founder of The Seed Bank of Holland. This multiple award-winning strain is a cross of an Afghani landrace known as Maple Leaf Indica (Afghan T) and Skunk #1. Super Skunk was developed with yield and potency in mind. It was released in 1990, the last year before Nevil’s genetic library was acquired by Sensi Seeds.
TASTE & SMELL –
This strain has a strong skunky aroma that’s blended with sweet notes of citrus and earth. She has a strong citrus flavor when smoked, reminiscent of mandarins and oranges with a mildly earthy backend.
Super Skunk is typical of a heavy Indica hybrid with a pleasant combination of cerebral euphoria and deep physical relaxation. Super Skunk’s strong cerebral effects can seemingly heighten senses with mental clarity and alertness maximized.
MEDICAL USES –
Medically, Super Skunk’s relaxing qualities have been known to be beneficial for those suffering from chronic pain, migraines and stress. She can also be helpful for those with eating disorders, helping to make food more palatable and encouraging appetite.
GROW INFO –
Considered a relatively easy strain to grow, she is suitable for indoor, outdoor and greenhouse cultivation. Super Skunk produces medium-height, uniform plants with a thick dense structure. This sturdy hybrid has an indoor flowering period of seven to eight weeks and is ready for harvest by October when grown outdoors in the Northern Hemisphere. She responds well to additional cultivation techniques such as Sea of Green and Screen of Green, while topping and lollipopping are also recommended. Growers can expect generous yields of fat dense buds that are super frosty. Lastly, it should be noted that this strain has the tendency to produce male flowers if over-stressed.
SEED AVAILABILITY –
For those interested in obtaining Super Skunk genetics, she is available in regular, feminized and auto-flowering seed forms directly from Sensi Seeds’ website and through authorized online vendors. It must also be noted that Super Skunk genetics are an important building block in many of today’s strains. Sensi Seed’s Super Skunk seed stock from the 1990s is a holy grail to cannabis breeders and one has to ask why the Super Skunk seed stock of today, still sold by Sensi Seeds is not sought after with the same relish?
