Skunk #1 has been one of the biggest cannabis strains in the world for over 30 years. Even the word Skunk has become synonymous with any form of extremely strong weed.
This particular strain is extremely vigorous with its impressive yields and thick, resin covered buds. This strain is a combination of indica and sativa, giving it a delightfully balanced effect.
It is both extremely relaxing in that heavy, full body way that only powerful indicas can be, but also have a nice, light heady high that keeps it from being a full knock out.
However this strain is not one to be taken lightly, despite the slight over exaggeration when it comes to its power. Skunk #1 will usually thrive in a warmer climate and does stretch a little, so may need to be given a bit of support later on.
This strain is feminised and will only grow into female plants. Feminised seeds are perfect for growers, who usually have no need for the male plants.
The males take up a lot of valuable time, space and money that would be much better used on the male plants. They also have to be removed during the flowering period before they can harm the females in any way.
Feminised seeds also tend to be of a higher standard of quality and uniformity than regular plants. For this reason some breeders also prefer to use feminised seeds. However, this form of breeding is quite difficult and should only be attempted by experienced breeders.
This strain can be grown indoors, outdoors or in a greenhouse and has a flowering time of just 45 – 50 days.
