[Skunk #1 x Afghani][90% Indica][18% THC]
I find that a lot of strains that people only consider for sleeping, I prefer all day long. Super Skunk is one of those, for the sensitive Indica smoker it may knock you right out for a peaceful night’s sleep. However for me it provides a calmness and relaxed state that makes me able to start my day, continue on with my day OR pass out after my day is through.
The strain first appeared in 1990 in Amsterdam and by 1992 had won the Cannabis Cup there in the mostly Indica genre with a 3rd place appearance in the all around. With the genetic parentage of an Afghani Indica and classic Sativa Skunk #1, the hybridization is old school in the friendliest sense. You’ll feel a familiarity in the effects as the Afghani relieves all your stresses and the Skunk lifts your spirits.
How Does It Hit the Senses?
These buds generally grow slightly rounded and densely packed, they’re like rocks and should definitely be ground up for the best use of your flower. The color is more of a forest green lightened by a visible array of trichomes. Dark orangey brown hairs are sprinkled methodically throughout each nugget. The first whiff delivers a layered bergamot citrus scent which finishes with a sweet cocoa aroma. The familiar skunk is not lost in this smell scape but it’s also certainly not highlighted. That skankiness found in most Skunk #1 hybrids combines with the Afghani in this cannabis strain to create the rich cocoa undertones. When you take a hit the taste is all to familiar of the wonderful scent. The richness layered in the musky orange flavor stimulates the palate. It almost delivers that sweet earth flavor on inhalation and morphs into a bright citrus on the exhalation.
Super Skunk will grow like the squatty little Indica plant that it is. It takes about 45 to 50 days to flower and is an easier strain to grow. She will perform well indoors and in a greenhouse setting located in temperate zones.
What is the effect?
For me the effects take hold in seconds by directly relieving all ocular pressure. As the muscles in the eyes begin to unwind you’ll feel a smooth wave a pain relief run first through your face and then melt down your neck and shoulders to inevitably relax your entire body. After noticing the initial physical realm of calmness you’ll begin to realize that your mind is also releasing all of the anxieties that formerly took weight. You will get anywhere from 1-3 hours of effect from this flower, as I said if you are sensitive to Indica this may be a sleepy time only strain for you.
It will lighten your mood and give you the ability to let go of the little things, personally a welcome feeling in my daily existence. Riding out the effects of Super Skunk is a pleasant experience, like taking a little row boat out on a calm evening. For your first time medicating with Super Skunk make sure you test it in the evening in a safe, comfortable setting. Everyone’s body is different and it is best to try anything 70% Indica or above with the ability to remain safe if you feel a wave of sleep coming on. Safety is key!
