    Super Skunk is considered one of the classic marijuana strains. Its predecessor, Skunk, came up in the 1980s and was crowned the winner on the first Cannabis Cup. The Super Skunk offspring came up around 1990 by combining Skunk and more Afghani genes and has been an Amsterdam coffee shop staple ever since!

    Effects of Super Skunk

    The general strength of the Super Skunks effects often varies in individuals. This strain is famous for being a powerful stress-reliever, inducing a feeling of deep relaxation and a calm, euphoric high – a great way to alleviate day-to-day anxieties and insomnia.

    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.

    Also read about this amazing skunk strain known as White Skunk that is very potent and high yielding.

    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 have 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.

    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 nausea caused by the radiation and encouraging them to consume their meals as normal.
