SUPER SKUNK: HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE SKUNK FAMILY
Super Skunk is beloved by beginner growers and big time commercial growers alike. This infamous strain is the result of a monumental selective breeding program by the Master Breeders at Sensi Seeds. Only the finest pedigree Afghani genetics were chosen for hybridisation with the legendary Skunk #1.
Don’t get it twisted, Super Skunk is not just Skunk #1 on steroids. Rather Super Skunk is an enhanced version with improved potency and yield. Even aroma and bag appeal have been tweaked and refined. The characteristic reeking odour and frosty pumped buds of Super Skunk are the defining traits of high-grade marijuana. Super Skunk is a proven producer of top-shelf weed in just 7 weeks flowering.

Super Skunk Cannabis Strain Effects
After a little digging, I discovered where the cheese smell was coming from. The genetics of Super Skunk link back to Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 and Afghanistan. Skunk #1 is a cross of Mexico, Colombia, and Afghanistan. Afghanistan is an original strain, so when this strain was back-crossed with its true Afghani parents, it created a ‘super’ hybrid, hence the name.
On the other hand, the famous Big Buddha Cheese strain is a phenotype of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 and Afghani. They have the sameparents, no wonder they have similar smells, tastes, and effects! The story behind Cheese is sort of a miracle. It originated in 1988 as one unique phenotype that grew impressively large buds from a packet of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1. The plant was quickly cloned and named “Cheese,” because of the buds very distinct cheesy odor.
The dispensary categorizes this strain on their menu as a Sativa strain. However, after looking at the strain genetics (and actually smoking the strain myself), I found the this strain to have a noticeably strong couch-lock effect. This full-body warp makes the this strain popular among medical marijuana patients seeking for a way to treat minor aches and pains. It’s also revered for its ability to significantly boost ones appetite.
