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. Buds smell skunky as you would imagine but also earthy, candy-sweet and floral like jasmine. The smoke has a fruity orange and cedarwood flavor with an old school musky and cheesy aftertaste. Joints of Skunk #1 are buttery smooth and clean smoking.
Skunk #1 has a strong calming and thought-provoking effect. The high is mostly felt in the head. It goes through waves of feeling trippy and relaxed but keeps functional. Skunk has many medical benefits and is prescribed for treating nausea, vomiting, muscle spasms, inflammation, and glaucoma. Many patients have also used Skunk to ease withdrawals from chemical dependencies.
Growing Original Skunk #1 Seeds
Growing Skunk #1 is easy for all growers regardless of experience. The plants are energetic and quick flowering. The robust stems and branches can bear high yields without added support. Skunk was created for indoor gardens but will also thrive outdoors in warm sunny weather like in California, Spain, and Portugal. The dense flowers can become susceptible to mold if the conditions get too humid and have not enough airflow. Outdoor plants finish flowering in mid-October with an average yield of 16oz/plant. Indoor plants produce 18oz/m2 and finish flowering in 8-9 weeks.

I grew the buds. They are nice buds and the plants gave great yields of over 2 pounds each.
Unfortunately, they dont smell like a skunk 😂 More of a fruity, slightly pungent aroma. Still good stuff though.
I really was hoping for that weed I grew up on in the 80s that smelled like an actual skunk. Maybe those days are gone?
Is there a strain that will give me that old school skunk aroma?
Out of 2 seeds only one sprouted and it is growing well. It is only my first attempt so I’m happy with the progress. Photo shown is at 7 weeks old and I have trimmed off about 40 large fan leaves. I would have thought it would be a bit taller by now but it’s growing strong and healthy.
I ordered 3 feminized seeds. All 3 germinated. They are currently growing aggressively outdoors. The plants themselves are thick, healthy, and amazingly symmetrical. I have clones from all 3 in an indoor flowering room for sexing just to be sure. I'm looking forward to seeing the final product in October. Hoping it's the true original skunk weed we grew to love in the 80s.
Order the original skunk#1. Germinated 1 seed it started to grow. I planted it a couple weeks later I'm checking on it. It looks like it's auto topped it self or am I wrong.. Some answer this please could this happen?
So far so AWESOME
All of my skunk seeds popped and they are growing like weeds lol
Leaves bigger than my hand
As an “vintage” cannabis connoisseur I’m most excited about growing this strain!! Looking forward to a blast from the past!
All seeds popped and they are growing super fast!!
