Super Skunk is truly a strain that lives up to its name and was one of the first serious attempts, by Sensi Seeds, at stepping their breeding game up a level. Needless to say they were successful in their endeavour and, by taking the ever popular Skunk#1 back to its Afghani heritage, they created an immediate Cannabis Cup winner. The sheer vigour and potency of this plant are truly something to marvel at since it surpasses anything else on the market. There were many experiments before Sensi achieve Super Skunk and a good number of excellent strains were created but none of them quite as special as this one. Super Skunk matched the exact target set for the project, since the bar has been steadily raising since the 80s Super Skunk really had to be something spectacular. It was 1990 when Super Skunk was finally available to the public and it took off like a bullet. The reliability and vigour of the strain made it an instant hit with the public and the cannabis breeding community. The strain may need a little encouragement at first but when it gets going it produces massive crystal-covered colas whether it is grown outdoors, indoors, or in a greenhouse.
These seeds are regular seeds which simply means that they have not been tampered with genetically. They grow into a roughly even split of male and female plants, although the ratio often leans in the favour of the females. Many old-school breeders and growers all over the world still swear by regular seeds for their reliability, their purity, and their simplicity. There have been many projects over the years which have attempted to introduce cannabis back into the wild, and in each project regular seeds were utilised. For breeders regular seeds are by far the simplest option as the only other one is feminised breeding, feminised breeding is an extremely complex process which should only be undertaken by the most experienced breeders. However the regular seeds, since they produce a combination of male and female plants, allow a breeder to select the cream of their genetic crop. These plants will become the parents to the next crops, passing on their superior genetics and ensuring a certain level of quality in future plants.
Super Skunk flowers in a relatively short period of just 45 - 50 days. It should be grown, if being grown outdoors, in a temperate or continental climate, the strain is 80% Indica.
