Skunk Special was retired for a few years but has since been brought back into the Female Seeds' line-up purely through weight of customer demand! Its lineage can be traced back to the original Skunk plants that Sam the Skunkman developed for Dutch greenhouse cultivation way back in the 1980s.
Skunk Special is a very versatile plant; it performs exceptionally well indoors under artificial light, in greenhouses as well as outdoors. This strain is composed mainly of Mexican and Colombian sativas with a little Afghan mixed in and has the familiar cat-piss smell of old-school Skunk.
Plants grow to a height of about 60 - 80 cm. and have a short flowering time of 7 - 8 weeks. Growers can expect large harvests of very high-quality buds. The high is strong in both head and body and it persists for a long time. It provides a well-balanced indica/sativa hit.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
