Sunlight Skunk Strain

Sometimes, all one needs a ray of sunshine to brighten up the day. Fortunately, Sunlight Skunk does exactly that. Through its well-balanced high, it clears the mind of worries and negativity while totally relaxing the body.

Besides recreational users, Sunlight Skunk also brings joy to growing enthusiasts. Its name, in fact, was inspired from its frosty and resinous flowers that glisten when shined upon. Nothing short is to be expected of the specialized Skunk #1 bred by Zion Botanicals though.

The perfectly split hybrid is vastly different from its parent though. For one, it is much more potent with THC levels that average at 18%. Its terpene profile differs vastly too. Its skunky overtones have traces of fruit and flowers.

    Mellow at first, the mental stimulation gradually intensifies until users radiate with a happiness from within. The upbeat disposition also positively transforms creative slumps by encouraging thoughts to flow and form freely.

    After about an hour or two, its Indica effects manifest as a light pressure that ebbs from between the temples. Each muscle the soothing wave passes is relaxed. A heaviness plants itself in the limbs as tensions release. In all likelihood, users will stay locked in their couches.

    Though it has great wake-and-bake qualities, Sunlight Skunk is not recommended for daytime use. The intensify of its physically relaxing buzz easily overpowers the cerebral onset especially when one smokes too much.


    Those who love Skunk #1 will find the skunky overtones of Sunlight Skunk quite familiar. Interestingly, it has fruity undertones accentuated by the sweet scent of wildflowers which intensifies when the buds are broken apart or combusted.


    Sunlight Skunk has a strong fruity flavor that perfectly pairs both sweet and sour undertones. On the exhale, it leaves a floral, skunky aftertaste that lingers even after the last puff.

    Adverse Reaction

    Like other strains, Sunlight Skunk has moisture-inhibiting cannabinoids that interfere with the production of saliva. Because of this, users most likely end up with a cottonmouth accompanied by dry eyes. Both usually last for a few hours before going away on their own but, if symptoms persist, downing a few glasses of water will help relieve the dehydration.

    Users may also experience a condition called ‘greening out’ when too much of Sunlight Skunk is used. It is characterized by either by a temporary dizziness, mild headache, and a keen awareness that can potentially lead to anxiety. Apart from a negative disposition before the session, another contributing factor is individual tolerance. For this reason, marijuana must always be used with caution.


    Sunlight Skunk has smooth and balanced effects that make it ideal for addressing issues affecting the mind and body. Its happy high, for example, enhances the mood and uplifts spirits. In doing so, it provides comfort to users going through depression and similar mental disorders like PTSD. Similarly, it reduces stress levels by calming the mind of overwhelming anxiety.

    In high levels, the same psychoactive compound in Sunlight Skunk also turns into a natural painkiller. Through its soothing body high, the bud eases various types of aches beginning from the temples including those caused by fatigue, inflammation, and muscular contractions.

      Sunlight Skunk, like its predecessor, is a joy to cultivate. A hardy plant, it performs amazingly in the outdoors and can withstand various problems caused by moisture such as mold or mildew. It may require protection from strong rains and other extreme weather though especially during the flowering phase.

      Indoor growing spaces also bring out Sunlight Skunk’s full potential. In such controlled environments, growers easily adjust and maintain factors like lighting, temperature, and humidity to ensure stability throughout the different stages of development.

      Because of its hybrid structure, the herb does not grow as tall but may still need to be topped early to keep it short especially for growers with limited areas. It is also quite versatile and adapts to different kinds of growing methods like the Sea and Screen of Green. Those wanting to maximize flavors while saving money may consider soil as a medium.

      When it flowers, it produces neon colored buds with a sparse covering of yellow hairs. Adding to its appeal is a rich layer of trichomes with drips of oozing resin sparkling against Sativa-shaped leaves.

      Because Sunlight Skunk is only available in regular form, growers must use pre-germination methods to increase the chances of females. They may also want to cultivate more than one plant. Although if one has the access, getting a clipping is also possible.

      Flowering Time


      Sunlight Skunk has an indoor flowering period of 8 to 10 weeks. Once ready for harvest, it yields 12 to 14 ounces worth of buds per square meter.


      Sunlight Skunk blossoms from the second to fourth week of October with each plant producing at least 14 ounces of buds. Depending on the climate, it can sometimes produce flowers a week earlier or later than its usual outdoor harvesting period.
