Original Skunk #1 was originally created by Sacred Seeds on the west coast of the USA during the second half of the 1970s. Bred by crossing an Afghani Indica, Acapulco Gold Mexican Sativa and a Colombian Gold sativa. It was the very first stabilised hybrid to be introduced to the burgeoning Dutch growing scene. It was then commonly called "sinsemilla" - grown for potency as seedless marijuana and prevented from becoming fertilised in order to harness all of the plant's energy to be used for resin production and not for seeds.
Its stabilisation resulted in its utilisation as breeding stock for almost all of the Skunk strains currently available as well as for many other strains as well. As such it was seen as the "gold standard" for modern, hybrid cannabis. Its dense buds vary from a light green to a golden colour and are liberally packed with THC-carrying resin. Its taste is somewhat sweet with a decidedly strong aroma (hence the name) and it delivers a powerful, cerebral high effect. Due to the very high ratio of buds to larger leaves it is a strain that is very easy to manicure following its harvest and drying.

One of the most trustworthy and professional seed banks in today’s industry, here at Seedsman, we have over a decade of experience in selling quality products at a very reasonable price.
Our initial concept was to help expert breeders package, market and sell their cannabis seeds. We are not - and have never claimed to be - breeders ourselves, but we do work very closely with our suppliers in order to maximise the exposure of their high quality inbred, hybrid and landrace cannabis strains.
Our cannabis seeds have come from pioneering breeders, some who prefer to remain nameless and others who are known worldwide for the quality of their breeding. Sacred Seeds and Sam the Skunkman are our most famous suppliers. The huge breeding programme helped to create seminal marihuana strains such as Skunk #1 and Original Haze.
As well as mass hybrid cannabis strains with mass market appeal, we are also very keen to maintain high quality landrace strains, as we see these as the fundamental genetics in cannabis evolution.
In 2007, we launched the Seedsman Feminised cannabis seeds range, which was put together from strains created by breeders we had befriended in previous years. We have kept the number of strains to a minimum so that we can maintain the highest quality possible. Each strain offers a unique taste, and importantly, growth characteristics which display each strain’s individual genetic make-up.
In 2011, we introduced our Autoflowering Feminised strains which, like all cannabis seeds under the Seedsman brand, offer great quality at a very reasonable price.
