The original Skunk # 1, this strain has been the benchmark of the Skunk family for many years.
An Sativa-dominant hybrid, Skunk # 1 Weed has been bringing smiles to the faces of marijuana fans for generations. Some claim that it was first bred in California and then introduced to the Netherlands, while others say that the journey was made in the opposite direction. The accepted genetic heritage for Skunk # 1 is an Afghan Indica and two Sativas: Acapulco Gold and Colombian. What we know with absolute certainty is that this strain is the basis for dozens of modern Skunk hybrids.
As expected, this strain has the classic Skunky aroma with earthy notes and some musk, as well as fresher notes of citrus and pine.
The smoke of Skunk # 1
The smoke certainly does not disappoint and is as heavy and potent as one would expect from such a variety. There is a pronounced undertone of acidity associated with the predominantly earthy and skunky flavor profile, which has a strong hint of classic hashish and sweet spices. It may not be the most delicious strain in itself, but it is still a guaranteed public success.
Skunk # 1 effect / medical effects
The high begins with a euphoric boost that really stimulates the brain cells and then settles into a relaxing body noise. Medically, people use Skunk # 1 for chronic pain, loss of appetite and insomnia. It is also routinely used in small doses to treat glaucoma, while higher doses have been shown to be effective in treating certain movement disorders.
Growth of Skunk # 1
Skunk # 1 seeds produce medium-sized plants that grow between 100 and 120 centimeters in size. The plants have a high ratio of buds to leaves and tend to change from a light to a dark green green as they mature. THC is in the range of 12 to 17 percent. The buds are dense, light green to golden and covered with sparkling crystals.
This plant was developed for indoor growing, but thanks to its resistance you can also succeed outdoors. Inside, she is happy in soil or hydro systems and has a flowering time of about nine weeks. The plants have good resistance to pests and molds and you can expect to harvest about 500 - 700 grams per square meter.
Outside, Skunk # 1 grows cannabis in cooler northern climates. Make sure you plant it in a place that has plenty of warm sunshine and rich, fertile soil to grow. The harvest in the northern hemisphere takes place in mid-October.
