Skunk strains are believed to have originated in the United States before development by Dutch growers. Skunk is a hybrid of sativa and indica, dominating both varieties in different strains. This iconic strain first hit the market in the 1970s and has since given rise to multiple other strains that most cannabis connoisseurs are familiar with.
Skunk is a rather beautiful crop, radiating with sugar leaves in shades of light-yellow and faded green, mixed with a bit of silvery-grey and orange. Often the buds contain many patches of bright, bright orange pistils that curl and twist throughout the sugar leaves, and a thick coating of trichrome usually coats the surface of these densely packed balls of herb.
The aroma of Skunk is a spicy and sometimes overwhelming scent that has become a preference amongst medical marijuana patients and recreational pot smokers. It has a strong earthy, musky, and skunky smell with hints of jasmine, sweet and sour, and fruity aromas.
