Original Skunk #1 Seeds
Skunk #1 is the foundation for almost 80% of all modern cannabis hybrids. Skunk was the first true-breeding cannabis plant, meaning that it reliably produces consistent offspring with the same traits as the parents. The original genetics are Afghani bred with Acapulco Gold and Columbian Gold. Skunk #1 was the winner of the first-ever High Times Cannabis Cup held in 1988.
Skunk #1 is 65% indica with a THC content of 16-19% and a CBD/CBN of 1.%. The terpenes in Skunk are mainly delta-limonene, beta-caryophyllene, linalool and, alpha-humulene.
Original Skunk #1 flowers have a faded green color with light yellow, gold, and silver patches. Bright orange pistils curl and twist across the resinous buds. The flowers come in dense rounded clusters that despite being sticky are easy to roll.
Since the late 1970s, the term “Skunk” has been associated with potent and delicious tasting cannabis. Skunk #1 is the standard by which all other strains are held.
