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.

Where do original skunk cannabis strains originate from?
Skunk cannabis is a hybrid between two Sativa landraces – Colombian Gold and Acapulco Gold. Skunk genetics also contain purebred Afghani Indica genetics. Skunk is now a legendary cannabis strain which stands for potency, pungency and ease of growth. Skunk was originally thought to have been developed during the early 70’s in Southern California by a group of growers and breeders known as Sacred Seeds, led by Sam the Skunkman.
Are Dutch Passion’s skunk seeds sativa or indica?
They tend to be sativa or sativa dominant. But many people have used skunk cannabis genetics in hybrids with indica strains and produced indica (or indica leaning) strains which contain skunk genetics.
What are the typical cannabinoids and terpenes found in skunk strains?
Much depends on the specific parent genetics which may have been used in the breeding. Typically you can expect THC rich strains with minor levels of other cannabinoids such as CBD, CBG etc. However, future selective skunk breeding and hybridising may well produce Skunk strains rich in new cannabinoids. Myrcene is a common terpene found in Skunk cannabis strains.
What is the average THC level found in skunk cannabis?
Cultivation techniques play a large role in the final cannabinoid content of any cannabis plant. Just switching from an HPS light to an optimised LED light can significantly increase THC content, as can correct nutrient management and environmental control. But assuming you have optimised grow room conditions and reasonable skill levels you can expect around 20% THC if you grow skunk cannabis seeds.
What is the average flowering time and yield for skunk strains?
Skunks have typical bloom times of around 9 weeks for regular/feminised skunk cannabis seeds. Those that are more sativa-leaning may take an additional couple of weeks. Yields are similar to other cannabis strains, though experienced growers may feel that average yields may be somewhat heaver than other types of cannabis. Autoflowering skunk cannabis seeds generally take around 11 weeks to grow from seed to harvest.
