Ruderalis Skunk was bred to create a faster-finishing and stronger, more resistant plant, than Skunk #1 whose genetics are used in this hybrid. Half of all plants will be auto-flowering with the rest flowering as a response to shortening daylight hours. The perfect beginner's outdoor plant.
Ruderalis Skunk is a marijuana strain that is eminently suitable for cultivation in relatively harsh climates with short summers such as is found in northern and eastern Europe. It is 70% indica and grows into a large plant producing very high yields. Unlike the Ruderalis Indica strain Ruderalis Skunk was bred and selected for its potency, vigour and yields with the land-race ruderalis genetics contributing auto-flowering genes.
The auto-flowering plants will enter florescence at between 5 and 10 weeks of vegetative growth when 5 - 7 sets of side-branches have developed. Growers often start their plants off indoors to give them a head start before transplanting outdoors when the temperatures have warmed up a bit. The rest will flower later and finish at around the same time as Early Skunk and Early Girl in September in northern latitudes. This provides two separate harvests, one with around 45 days of flowering and the other around 3 - 4 weeks later.
The autos amongst the crop will not grow more than 2 meters tall but the photo-period ones can get rather bigger. The buds grow large, dense and very sticky with resin. Inclement weather will not phase this strain and it will still deliver buds with an extremely relaxing body stone.
About Sensi Seeds
There is no other seed bank in the world that has been coveted with more awards than Sensi Seeds. From the Highlife Cup to the Cannabis Cup, Sensi have achieved unrivalled legendary status in the seed bank world.
In the early 1970’s, the founder of Sensi, Ben, opened a clothes shop in the Dutch city of Rotterdam where he sold homemade clothing. A few years earlier, at the age of seventeen, he smoked his first joint. But it wasn’t until he began making regular trips to Turkey, Afghanistan and Pakistan to purchase textiles that he became aware of the plant’s versatility. He learned about hemp fibre’s suitability as, among other things, a textile and was given cannabis and cannabis seeds by local farmers. Ben discovered that the cannabis plant had so much to offer in spite of it being prohibited and vilified in all corners of the world.
It became one of his passions to collect cannabis seeds from Central and South East Asia and the Asian subcontinent. Back home in the Netherlands, he started to cultivate these seeds in order to learn more about the growth process of this very special plant.
At the start of the 1980’s, the first examples of innovative, stabilised hybrids, such as Haze and Skunk, arrived in Europe from the United States. Ben was one of a mere three Dutch cultivators who were granted access to these hybrids, which are considered an important blueprint for the development of European hybrids.
At the end of the seventies, Ben found out that cannabis seeds did not fall under the cannabis prohibition; it was only the plant that was prohibited and not the seeds. As it was not illegal to sell seeds, Ben reasoned that the production process should not be illegal either. He started his seed company after a lawyer confirmed this insight and in 1985 the Sensi Seed Club, also known as the Sensi Connoisseurs’ Club, came into being. Ben took over a company called the Seed Bank in 1991 and the gene libraries were merged to create the Sensi Seed Bank as we know it today.
Sensi Seeds search for cannabis genetics has never ceased in the last 30 years. Their dedication towards genetic preservation has also never diminished. To this day, Sensi are true to their roots and are now, more than ever, aware that the future of cannabis genetic research lies in its past, in the genetics that started it all.
Sensi genetics offer not only the high yield and range of effects people search for, they actually represent a part of Cannabis’ history.
With a host of award winning strains, it would be unwise to overlook Sensi Seeds, available to buy at Seedsman now.
