About this Hybrid Strain
It’s one of the most famous strains in existence, and it’s the parent of too many “Skunk” brands to count. The buds from this iconic cannabis plant are a brilliant neon green, though it may be difficult to see given all the thick, winding orange and brown pistils that smother these flowers.
Skunk #1 is mostly indica (65% indica/35% sativa) and it smells exactly as it should – like a dirty, dirty skunk. When sparked up, it tastes sour and pungent.
This strain is known for providing a heavy, stoney-headed high that remains focused and functional. It is recommended for minor pains and inflammation, although it excels at treating stress, insomnia, depression, and other mood disorders. It will also bring on a strong appetite.
Skunk #1 may cause cottonmouth or lightheadedness.
Skunk #1 was born sometime in the 1970s, originally bred by Sacred Seed Co. It is a cross of multiple strains, primarily landraces from Afghanistan, Thailand, and the Acapulco Gold landraces that originated in South and Central America. It regularly tests around 15-19% THC and under 1% CBD.
