Indica Dominant Hybrid –65% Indica / 35% Sativa
THC: 19%, CBD: 1%
Known for its strong skunky smell and deeply relaxing effects, Super Skunk is an indica-dominant crossbreed of Skunk #1 and an original Afghani strain. The sativa/indica ratio is 35:65, making this a decidedly physical strain that can help relieve bodily pain, insomnia, depression, and anxiety, as well as everyday stress. It’s also effective at treating depression and lack of appetite. THC levels vary widely, depending on the batch and the lab that analyzes it, but it can apparently be fairly high, above 19%. CBD levels are also hard to pin down, with estimates ranging from 0.26% to 2.4%, but neither reading is high enough to firmly recommend this for seizure disorders. Super Skunk delivers a euphoric body buzz that improves mood, sparks creativity, and encourages a carefree attitude. Paranoia is possible, but dry mouth and bloodshot eyes are more common. Like its parent strain, Super Skunk has a strong, pungent skunk aroma and an earthy, skunky flavor. The buds are a lighter green color with a light hazing of trichomes. This strain sells on the legal markets in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Arizona, and Connecticut. It also circulates on the black market, though it isn’t terribly common there.
Super Skunk has one of the most distinctive highs among all the strains of marijuana. It is obviously an updated, crossed version of the original Skunk strain, but it sort of ups the ante for Skunk lovers. The seeds of this marijuana strain have produced plenty of award-winning plants that have impressed professional cannabis judges and plenty of amateur aficionados. This indica-dominant strain is certainly one for the ages.
Super Skunk is an Indica-dominant cannabis strain with potent body effects. Its parent, Skunk #1, is a reliable and legendary strain that first created Shiva Skunk. Three years later came Super Skunk, which the breeder, Sensei Seeds, calls the first hybrid breeding project with Afghani roots. The breeder says that Super Skunk adds potency, weight, and flavor to Skunk #1 and Shiva Skunk.
The company continues its experiments in Afghan hybrids, as do other companies in the U.S. and abroad. Breeders are chasing the dream of a perfect Afghani genotype that matches Skunk #1. Their passion stems from Skunk #1’s global influence since the 1970s and it’s crosses that span generations including Acapulco Gold and Colombian Gold.
This marijuana strain inherits its parent’s aromatic values, which people call skunk due to its overwhelming resemblance to the black and white woodland creature. Others say that the smell is like cheese or the fungus underside of a rock. People describe the smoke as clean and the taste as sweet.
