Although Skunk is one of the most important cannabis strains in history, it is also the most misunderstood of all. At least, this is the case in many regions, where cannabis of high quality and potency is often referred to as Skunk. Skunk is not just a strain in itself, but a generic term for one of the strongest marijuana strains on the market.
In reality, however, Skunk is a very important and completely independent cannabis strain. Any form of true Skunk may have the same strong and powerful qualities, but decades of careful breeding and engineering have resulted in the creation of dozens of modern masterpieces.
And if you’re interested in trying one of them, you’ve come to the right place! Seeds66 is proud to offer a wide selection of Skunk variety cannabis seeds – all personally selected and renowned for their outstanding quality and epic results.
Skunk the “Oldschool” Strain
Skunk comes in different forms. At the beginning of the 70s, the first super-talented skunk names began to make the rounds. To this day, Skunk is characterized by an almost overwhelming, earthy aroma, which must be carefully cleaned by activated carbon filters, if discretion is required. Due to the fact that Skunk has always been such a strong strain, all other quality strains have been referred to as Skunk in some circles. Even if by definition they are nothing like that.
The strength of Skunk produced today is so high that it represents the variety highlighted in most government health warnings! This originates from America where hemp was forbidden for a long time. Now, however, the various Skunk tribes are the subject of intense research as the scientific community investigates how many incredible medicinal properties this 70’s wonder plant possesses.
A Skunk family, but endless varieties
There are only a few varieties that exceed Skunk when it comes to the potential for large and reliable yields with minimal effort. Skunk plants are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor growing. They are uniquely durable, resilient and forgive most rookie mistakes.

A Super Skunk Variety Descending From Skunk #1
An absolute classic strain which laid the genetics for the majority of marijuana seeds around today. Originally, a mix of Colombian, Mexican and Afghan land races creating the 50% Sativa 50% Indica genetic that led to a new generation of cannabis. Over the years this strain has been worked on to improve that sweet taste and big buds most commonly associated with Skunk #1. Today, Royal Queen Seeds brings this classic variety into the modern era with a feminised seed.
Skunk XL Offers an Easy Growing Experience
Our Skunk XL feminised will grow over 1 metre tall, up to 1.5m, yielding a giant main cola. Over all she is quite an easy plant to maintain, with little stretching during flower for a Sativa, combined with her big bud structure altogether making her a pleasant plant to grow. This relatively easy maintenance makes her suitable for both soil and hydro set ups, especially for Sea/Screen of Green operations.
Grown indoors on average you get a yield of 65-75 g per plant or between 600-650 g per metre squared, under a 600w light. Grown outdoors, she prefers a warmer climate such as in Spain, Italy or California and given the right conditions will produce over 600g per plant. Due to her relatively short flower time she can be grown in more northern latitudes (UK, Netherlands), however, will not reach her full potential as she would indoors.
Flowering will be finished after 8-9 weeks to maximise flavour, but she can go a week longer to give an extra kick to the smoke. Overall her short flower time, easy grow and big yield makes her a contender for the selection of those commercial ‘cash-crops’.
As for smoke, our Skunk XL Feminised brings a great mix of instant head high while a subtle body stone creeps up on you after time. Smokers always enjoy her sweet, fruit like, taste that makes every hit of the joint or bong a genuine pleasure to be desired after.
Try for yourself and you will not be disappointed.
