About Big Skunk Korean

Big Skunk Korean is a hybrid strain of uncertain origin. Its name implies a cross between popular strains Big Bud and Skunk #1, but the “Korean” referenced here is a bit of a mystery. Globalization has of course spurred the crossbreeding and development of landraces endemic to places as far-flung as Thailand and South Africa - and although cannabis has grown wild on the Korean peninsula for centuries, there is no evidence of a stable Korean landrace strain taking hold in the west. Despite this genetic puzzle, users enjoy Big Skunk Korean for its unique taste and Sativa-leaning properties.

Buds of Big Skunk Korean are typically large and resinous like those of its possible parent Big Bud. Leaves can contain some purple pigment, a trait also evident in child strain Lavender. Users report a primarily floral, herbal aroma in the intact buds, with some pungent hash and skunk observed after grinding.

A strong head high is the primary effect, which gradually moves towards disorientation and confusion. A subtle body high is also noticeable, although not potent enough for immobilization. Encouraging relaxation and talkativeness, this is a good strain for social and daytime use.

An emerging strain with potential for greater cultivation, growers describe Big Skunk Korean faring well indoors. Yield can be above average, although flowering can take as long as 15 weeks.

This strain has been valuable in crossbreeding, having parented the popular herbal Lavender as well as the citrus-heavy Kilimanjaro. It remains to be seen whether the supposed Korean landrace lineage of this strain lends it any particular potency. Cannabis is strictly prohibited in South Korea and although it’s -- shockingly -- openly tolerated in North Korea, the latter country’s current political climate means that we may not have insight into viable Korean landrace strains for some time.
