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.

Fragrance

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”.

Flavors

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.

Medical

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%.

Growing

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.
