Skunk Kush was bred by crossing Skunk #1 with a Hindu Kush plant. This feminised version has undergone further refinement and is a 60% indica plant that flowers quickly producing large yields in the process.
Skunk Kush is intended for indoor growing and can also be grown outdoors in a warm, dry climate. It grows with a thick, strong stem and will add at least 50% in height during flowering which takes between 50 - 60 days. Outdoors harvest is likely to be during October in the northern hemisphere. Buds are dense and fat as would be expected from this cross as both parents are known for the size and weight of their flowering clusters. The best phenos develop clusters that resemble bunches of grapes with swollen calyxes that increase the surface area for the resin glands to populate. Removing lower branches early on will allow the central bud to expand so much that it will take up half of the stem
The aroma is a dark, musky and earthy Skunk perfume with lemon citrus notes. The best phenos will add zesty lemon and menthol notes to the flavour profile and also expanding the airways. The more indica phenos will produce the powerful, physical stone affecting the body while the more Skunk sativa-influenced ones have an extra kick in the head. Either way you'll be well-stoned.
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.
