Super Skunk

Super Skunk

The Super Skunk Strain is known globally for its unique “hybrid” qualities. It is loved for its distinct and famously fragrant “skunky” scent and for producing the perfect high that allows you to loosen up. Super Skunk sinks you into a deep state of relaxation, while still being in a clear state of concentration and clarity.

A much-appreciated strain among amateur hobby-smokers and professional cannabis judges, the Skunk line of cannabis has a unique story of origin. Super Skunk is a popular and largely indica strain.

It was created by crossing Skunk #1 with an original Afghani strain. With this cross, the breeder, Sensei Seeds, refers to the strain as the “first hybrid breeding project” with Afghani roots - an upgraded “super” version of its original Skunk #1.

Super Skunk delivers a bold body-high due to the strain being indica-dominant, but keeps you focused and in tune with your surroundings. The underlying prominent sativa presence creates a clear-headed high. This allows you to focus and think straight while feeling a heavy sense of unwinding.

Super Skunk is also in demand for causing a profound state of elation, often causing the smoker to laugh uncontrollably - but also while enjoying an increased sociability and light-hearted talkativeness.


Super Skunk is distinguishable by its potent, fragrant whiff, which it inherited from its undeniably ardent roots and heritage. It has earned the name “skunk” as a homage to the ammonia-like scent of the animal.

While others claim that it smells more like a bold cheese or woodland fungus, it also carries a hint of a pleasantly sweet, yet pungent aroma, having been compared to a certain “white cheddar popcorn” smell”.


When it comes to flavors, contrary to what its scent predicts, the taste of Super Skunk is surprisingly fruity and sweet. Super Skunk also carries a mix of earthy and citrus notes, all still while maintaining the famous “skunkiness” it is known and loved for.

Sticking to its reputation for being “cheesy” in smell, the strain offers up a unique blend in flavor, staying within the savory side of flavors with a hint of a tangy aftertaste.

Adverse reactions

Due to its body-heavy effect, Super Skunk can cause some adverse effects such as dry mouth and blood-shot eyes, and in more extreme cases, mild paranoia and transient hallucinations.

Nervousness and anxiety has also been observed in some cases, due to its “clear head” effects, patients may become confused by the slowing down effect Super Skunk may have on their bodies, while their minds and thoughts stay switched on.

Another unpopular side effect is that Super Skunk can cause the “munchies”, leading to a strong surge in appetite and the absence of the feeling of fullness. This, however,  is purely a matter of perspective, given that Super Skunk is also used to treat patients who suffer from a lack of appetite.


With what conditions does it work?
Because of its strong relaxing characteristics, Super Skunk has proven to medically benefit patients who suffer from high levels of stress and body pain caused by the inability to physically unwind.

Patients who suffer from insomnia, depression and anxiety are known to benefit from the use of Super Skunk. This makes itself the perfect alternative to synthetic prescription medication, which can cause an array of side effects.

Harvest time super skunk

Great harvest

Cancer patients, especially those who are being treated with chemotherapy, often suffer from a lack of appetite, causing extreme and often dangerous weight-loss in many cases. These patients have been successfully treated with Super Skunk to reverse their weight-loss by eliminating the nausea caused by the radiation and encouraging them to consume their meals as normal. For those who have to endure painful headaches, migraines and cramps, Super Skunk has helped eliminate symptoms and aches.

It has also been credited for its ability to lessen their feelings of stress - which can often be the underlying cause of these issues to begin with. Another breakthrough in the use of medical marijuana, which is especially poignant with the use of Super Skunk, is that it is known to aid in the treatment of seizures, for which we have to thank its above average THC levels, which is at a whopping 20%, with its complementing CBD levels at 2.4%.


Popular not only to users, but also growers - Super Skunk is a relatively easy strain to grow, even for the amateur growers. It is a super strain also because it can withstand many environmental conditions, making it a real breeze to manage, without the fear of infestations.

Flowering time

When growing Super Skunk indoors, an above average yield can be anticipated, with the strain growing a rough estimate of 18 ounces per square meter, with its average flowering time ranging between 8 and 9 weeks.

The speed and service I received with this company is unlike any other seed provider out there. I have bought seeds from the biggest seed company's out there and have not only dealt with headache and plain out crappy customer service I will never again deal with the headaches of wondering if I was just ripped off or wondering if they'll ever be here. I love growing marijuana is the best site I've ever dealt with and will do many years of service through them. Thank you sooo much guys y'all are the shiznit.

I have just one SUPER SKUNK growing outdoors. It is a clone that I cut myself. This is the first time I have grown SS outside, as I usually grow indoors. The difference between indoor and outdoor is, shall we say, HUMONGOUS! My indoor SS plants averaged about 40-50 inches in height and 3-4 ounces of beautiful tasty buds in 7 gallon pots of organic soil. This outdoor clone, from same exact seed(MOTHER), stands an easy 70 inches in height and Is loaded with the stickiest, hairiest, stinkiest buds you could imagine. It is a CHRISTMAS TREE and in less than a week it will be Christmas Day! I think 18 ounces would be a safe estimate. I may never run up the power bill again! I almost forgot to mention this. I have always been a firm believer in providing my plants with a healthy organic growing medium and usually add nothing when plants are growing. This plant is in the ground beside my home growing in almost nothing when it comes to GOOD soil. I told my girlfriend that I was experimenting with a couple plants and letting them fly, pretty much on their own. Both the SUPER SKUNK and an old CENTRAL MAINE strain we'll call ROSCOE blew my mind outside with literally no help. ROSCOE is a monster and growing in the same stuff. Only Mainers can grow the ROSCOE, but do not hesitate to grab yourself some SUPER SKUNK seeds. I used to think it was good. Now I think it is INCREDIBLE.

Awesome. Truly. Easy and quick to grow. Mr Bergman, thank you!

I'm a first time grower and I will tell you...Robert and ILGM are the real deal. Got me seeds fast (ten fem super skunk) and I germinated three to start. ALL of them cracked over night with strong healthy tails! The girls are growing like crazy and I am amazed. I will be back for more beans in the future. Thanks again to Robert and crew!

By Roy ILGM on 21 February 2017

Awesome Carl! May your bud be supreme 😀

I grew this indoors this strain this spring. GREAT buzz. Doesn't take much (one or two draws off the vaporizer) and I'm good to go - full of energy, happy, productive. Very easy strain to grow but if you're going to take clones make sure you do it BEFORE you start flowering her out. She begins flowering so quickly (I saw pistils within 48 hours of flipping the lights) that you don't have much time before it's too late.

Super Skunk grown under 400 or more LED’s make for a fast turn around on these beauti’s. For my PTSD, Anxieies and more this strain has been my choice over pain pills of which yes my body has had many injuries too, and I don’t see the same commitment for relief from those on pills that do so many bad things to me and millions. Thank-You Mr. Robert! Life is so much kinder, beautiful and more. This gave me a chance to make so many other good choices that I could not have otherwise made with being on all the meds I used to be on and could be on. Our State will go recreational I assume in 2018 but Cannabis will always be a medical wonder for me and surely so many others like it has for thousands of years in some places of God’s great planet.

I have been growing for about a year and half. I'm in my seventh grow.I have only used ILGM. Seeds ordered have never taking more then 12 days to recieve. Also, and I believe most importantly, all germination problems were promptly replaced, no questions asked and with courtesy. I grow in a 4x4 space with limited head room. I have 2 air cooled 1000 watt lamps. Because of growing conditions I always employ SOG method. In my last six grows my lowest harvest was 22oz. (White Widow) with my highest being 33 oz. (Gold Leaf). Presently harvesting Crystal Fem which looks to be a record breaker, incredible plant! I started this project because I have a Neurological condition with Epilepsy. Weed has been a Godsend for me. That being said, buy from ILGM. They have good Karma. Robert and staff, thank you, thank you, thank you. Sincerely, Matt W.

Ordered 5 seeds planted one as an experiment and 7 days in and she’s looking good I’m only using a 125w cfl with a wing reflector. All in all I’d say that it was worth it!
