skunk #1 seeds
Skunk #1, also referred to as the Original Skunk #1, is a cultivar created by David Watson — also known as Sam the Skunk man — that serves as the genetic backbone for many of today’s cannabis strains.
Sources trace its origins to 1970’s California. It’s present in countless crossbreeds, and is a descendant of an Afghani landrace strain crossed with Acapulco Gold and Colombian Gold.
Refining his crops over many years, Sam the Skunkman selected phenotypes with the best yields, early flowering times and dense, resinous buds. It was one of the first well-known indoor cannabis varieties, and won several awards, including 1st place at the inaugural High Times Cannabis Cup in 1988.
The strain is named for its unmistakable stink. In fact, Skunk #1’s pungency contributed to its transition to indoor growing. Over time, breeders used the stable Skunk #1 to create countless hybrids, such as Ultra Skunk, Cheese Exodus and White Widow.
Both novice and experienced breeders should be able to grow the strain indoors, and can expect a yield in 8-9 weeks.
