This Skunk Classic strain is a call back to the earlier Skunk strains which was significantly more Sativa based. Skunk has been one of the best loved strains for a long time which also serves as a benchmark for other strains.
Since Skunk is so reliable, robust, and high yielding many breeders judge other strains by it. It is also true that Skunk's sheer potency has led to a trend of giving the name Skunk to any cannabis that is exceedingly strong.
Many other strains contain Skunk genetics which usually enhances their yield and growing speed. This strain is a back-cross of Skunk #1 with a high quality Columbian mother plant. The resulting plant is dense, full of resin and has an extremely strong scent.
A perfect strain for any type of grower or breeder. Flying Dutchmen has even made the strain available in the form of feminised seeds.
Feminised seeds were first created by Dutch Passion and immediately took the cannabis community by storm. Their purpose is a simple yet exceedingly effective one, to only grow into female plants.
For growers everywhere this was an absolute godsend as male plants are not only useless, outside of breeding, they can also be quite the nuisance.
They take up space which would otherwise be used by female plants as well as possibly harming the females that they grow amongst. The concept of simply creating a seed that did not allow for any male plants was nothing short of genius.
Not only do they solve this age-old problem, but they do so with a higher level of quality and uniformity. The process by which they are created is stunningly simple, however exceedingly difficult to execute and should only be attempted by experienced breeders.
Essentially a female plant can, if properly treated, produce a very similar pollen to that of the male plant, we call this feminised pollen. This feminised pollen is then used to fertilise a female plant.
The resulting seeds will only contain female genes and so can only grow into female plants. The results are truly fantastic and for a long time have been saving growers time, space, and money.
This strain is 35% Sativa and 65% Indica, has a short growing period of just 50 - 65 days, and thrives in a sunny or Mediterranean environment.
Please remember that the growing of cannabis plants and the cultivation of seeds is illegal in some countries - please check the laws of your country and don't be growing any plants if it is against your country's laws.
