Skunk #1

Indica Dominant Hybrid 65% Indica / 35% Sativa

THC: 15% - 19%, CBD: 1%, CBN: 1%

Skunk #1, also known as “#1” or simply as “Skunk," actually has less THC than its reputation might suggest: about 15-19% tops. But this remains one of the most famous strains of all time, born three decades ago in Holland, where breeders crossed multiple strains from South and Central America, Thailand, and Afghanistan. The result became a staple in itself and spawned countless hybrids containing its genes. True to its name, Skunk #1 smells decidedly skunky, while the taste is a mix of sour and earthy flavors. This is an indica-dominant strain (35:65 sativa/indica ratio) best used late in the day. Though it comes with a head buzz that belies its indica genes, Skunk #1 also provides deep-body relaxation. The head high is energetic and creative, while the body high is peaceful and soothing. It can be used to treat anxiety and other mental disorders, as well as chronic pain, headaches, and lack of appetite. This strain remains highly popular in Amsterdam, and though it can be found across the United States, it's mostly found on the West Coast, Arizona, and Colorado. Dry mouth is the most common problem associated with this strain, as well as paranoia and red eyes.

I love this strain... but I do not understand why some says 80% indica, some says 65% indica and some just indica dominant... but the actual lineage is Afghani, Acapulco Gold and Colombian Gold... so 2 out if 3 are sativa... ???


thanks Skunkman Sam for the great strain!


Very good smoke reminds me when I first started skunky & munchies


Damn good smoke.


There's a reason this strain has #1 in its name. This old school classic is and always will be one of my top 3 strains. The smell is so pungent and skunky and the taste is surprisingly sweet. I love the buzzy head high and the sinking body melt. It always instantly fixes my anxiety. A+++++


The description posted for this breed here is for skunk #1. Basically it relieves mild anxiety. This is not a couch lock breed nor does it increase or decrease appetite. This is something that goes best with an activity of some kind that doesn't require too much active thought. Like cleaning the house or making exercise fun. It comes and goes easy on the mind and won't leave you anxious or make you paranoid. Some like it for meditation. Skunk 47 is a cross of Skunk #1 and AK-47 which created something with a light calming headstone with minor pain killing effect. It should not affect balance. This and the broadening of the mind makes this a favorite among skateboarders, snowboarders, skaters and skiers.
