Backstory:Skunk 1(or Skunk #1) is a hybrid that has influenced cannabis on a global scale since the late 1970s with its unmistakeable pungent blend of sour skunkiness and subtle earthy notes.
Why we love it:Skunk 1 is a cornerstone of countless hybrids, and its pungent, skunky smell and heavy-hitting effects continue to make it a classic.
If you’ve ever had a taste of Jack Herer, U.K. Cheese, Green Crack, or Grape Ape, then you’ve already sampled Skunk #1 and some of its magic. This cannabis strain’s THC levels are not so profound, only reaching 15-19%, but probably what makes Skunk #1 cannabis so revolutionary, well-respected and appreciated, is the fact that it has been utilized as the parent plant to all of the descendant strains mentioned earlier, plus so many more.

This marijuana strain has brilliant genetics, which is why it has become a go-to for cannabis geneticists and breeders. Developed in the Netherlands during 1985 by Sensi Seeds (then called The Seed Bank), these brilliant scientists selectively bred together a few landrace strain varieties, and the end result became a plant from another planet.

What Is the Skunk #1 Marijuana Strain?
Classified as an indica dominant hybrid, Skunk #1 weed consists of 65% indica and 35% sativa genetics, but its effects aren’t so reminiscent of how one would imagine an indica dominant strain to be, possibly because of its hybridization.
As mentioned early, the THC levels of Skunk #1 weed are not particularly considered to be “off the charts”, but they do still rank in.
Due to its long-standing history of being genetically pure and quintessential for the development of other popular strains, Skunk #1 is widely respected throughout the cannabis world, and a multitude of seed banks have begun producing seeds for sale of this strain to encourage growers to cultivate Skunk #1.
Sensi Seeds created Skunk #1 by masterfully crafting a combination of three landraces, pure genetics strains; Acapulco Gold sativa, Columbian Gold sativa, and Afghani indica.
Skunk #1 Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
Much as the name suggests, the aroma of Skunk #1 is the epitome of skunky, radiating a pungent and sometimes overwhelming scent that has become a favorite amongst cannaisseurs, medical marijuana patients and recreational pot smokers.
Aside from the skunky aroma, Skunk #1 also protrudes hints of earthy sweetness. Some claim this strain tastes a bit sour and dirt-like, not in an unpleasant way, however, but more so it has a healthy overall flavor.
