I don’t know whether Sensi Seeds were trying to be ironic when naming this indica-dominant hybrid, but Super Skunk’s very pungent odor might be the only thing capable of masking the rotten cabbage-like smell of a real-life skunk. Originating from the legendary Skunk No.1 and Afghani strains, this product is ideal for those looking for a relaxing time or pain relief. Be warned though, tackling the after smell will get you through deodorant containers faster than the weather in Florida!
Not a particularly difficult to strain to nurture, Super Skunk is best grown indoors and has a flowering period of 9-10 weeks and can produce yields of around 425-500g/m2. The strain, however, is not limited to being grown indoors and can be grown outside in a dry temperate climate. Be wary, however, the process is not as easy and can result in some hiccups along the way.
Super Skunk buds are dense and bulky and have the usual fine hairs protruding. Its color is mostly green but can at times have orange and brown shades to it. Flavour wise it can be described as sweet, earthy and spicy, and it's exceedingly powerful smell is reminiscent of ammonia, whilst others have boasted cranberry, lemon and pomegranate aromas. Make no mistake, its pungent aroma is what really makes this strain stand out.

Perhaps best described as soothing and emboldening, you will notice a nice buzz around your body that brings about a noticeable improvement in mood, attitude, and creativity. The effects tend to last around 1-3 hours and will have you releasing positive vibes throughout.
Super Skunk appears to have a few medicinal uses, but the strain is especially regarded for its ability to bring about pain relief and alleviate depression and anxiety. Other medicinal uses include inducing hunger for those with eating disorders and helping to combat insomnia during the night.
Consuming or smoking too much can cause lethargic behavior, so not advisable to smoke in great quantities if having things to do. Also owing to it being high in THC, paranoia can potentially occur in those with low tolerances, but more often the side effects compromise of a dry mouth and bloodshot eyes.
