Afghan Skunk Auto is the auto-flowering version of Advanced Seeds' Afghan Skunk. Adding ruderalis genetics produces a plant with a short life-cycle and one which will flower irrespective of whether it receives 12, 18 or even 24 hours of light per day.
The original Afghan Skunk brought the pure indica hit of the Afghani plant combined with the more sativa-leaning effect of Skunk. This strain was 70% indica and 30% sativa. The addition of the ruderalis genes has brought the duration of the life-cycle down to between 9 - 10 weeks and produced shorter plants whose energies go into bud and resin formation sooner than with photo-period strains. It is a robust plant that has good resistance to both plant pests and mould infestations. When cultivated indoors these plants will grow to 75 - 100 cm. tall; outdoors they will grow a little taller but rarely more than 120 cm. tall. It performs very well in all kinds of substrate and grow-media.
Yields are good and indoor growers can harvest between 400 - 500 gr/m2 under 600 watt lighting. Resin production is very high producing an aroma that is likened to the sweet smell of hashish. The taste has undertones of berries and other fruit making this a truly delicious strain. Its THC level has been measured at 15% giving a relaxed, lazy feeling but one which elevates mood. It has also been known to relieve stress, anxiety and to stimulate the appetite.

About Advanced Seeds
Advanced Seeds was initially created after a group of Spanish breeders spent time researching Dutch genetics. Despite the incredible aromas and tastes of these genetics, the breeders found a number of problems with germination and vigor. In light of this, these breeders decided to set up their own seedbank in 1999.
During their first years, Advanced Seeds started selling their strains from their small grow shop in Murcia, Spain. It was a very basic set-up, with no packaging for products and no marketing to speak of; sales were slow, despite the high quality of their strains.
To achieve a substantial growth, Advanced Seeds decided to create a line of feminized genetics that combined a simple cultivation process for consumers, with the incredible flavors that they had seen in legendary Dutch genetics. Such was the success of these strains that Advanced Seeds became a professional seedbank in 2006.
Paying special attention to their advertising and corporate image, Advanced Seeds very quickly established themselves as one of the mots popular and reliable seedbanks in the country.
Today, Advanced Seeds continue to work hard to offer the very best qualty products to their loyal and ever-expanding customer list.
