The Skunk strain of cannabis (sometimes referred to as Super Skunk) is 60% sativa and 40% indica, meaning it is a slightly more sativa-dominant strain (cultivar) with average THC levels ranging between 16 and 20%.
Sensi Seeds created the Skunk strain by combining the Afghani and Skunk #1 strains of cannabis. When creating new strains, Skunk #1 is used often due to its popularity among growers due to its reliability and uniformity, as well as the wide range of phenotypes it can produce.
The Afghani strain originated in the Middle East and was brought to the United States in the 1970s. Both strains are indica-dominant and are known to give the consumer a deep body high without affecting their concentration. Some consumers even report feeling energetic after smoking the Skunk strain, further testament to this variety’s wide range of possible chemical combinations and compositions.
When smoked, the Skunk strain will produce a deeply aromatic and pungent cannabis aroma that many consumers love. When the strain is inhaled, it has a very sweet and fruity flavor profile that surprises many people.
