About Citral Skunk
Citral Skunk is an Indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis first grown in the Netherlands. The cannabis company who first created this strain, Bulldog Seeds, is a brand created by the same individuals responsible for a coffee shop empire in the Netherlands. As the name implies, this strain is a cross of two popular cannabis strains: Citral and Skunk. Although the lack of inspiration behind this name is astounding, the name itself is still quite descriptive of the properties of this strain. Citral Skunk, according to the numerous reviews available online, produces an aroma so powerful it can only be described as “dank.” This heavy aroma, in addition to its easy-to-grow nature and potent effects, has garnered this strain a number of fans and quite a following in places where it is legal. The THC concentration in these flowers is typically between 16-20%.
Unlike most Indica-dominant flowers, Citral Skunk nugs are typically elongated and thin pepper-shaped buds. These bright green flowers are almost neon in color, with a number of orangish brown undertones. In addition, you’ll easily spot some winding orange hais and a thick layer of chunky trichomes which can appear amber under the right lighting. These aspects add a lot of bag appeal to the strain, which is important for selling the strain to consumers. The aroma produced by these buds smells super sour, like something decaying in damp musty earth. This smell is only amplified as the buds are broken down or ground up, which makes Citral Skunk a poor choice for stealth smoking. The flavor isn’t nearly as harsh as the aroma, however. You’ll taste a wonderful blend of spicy herbs, sweet fruit, and a bit of sharp citrus on the exhale which will have you going back for another hit almost instantly.
Although the effects of this strain are largely physical in nature, the onset of this high is met with a number of calming and exciting cerebral effects. With a rush akin to the riptide current, your mind will be washed anew with energy and creative euphoria which will have you reaching for the paint brush(or whatever your creative tool is). While you’re busy expressing yourself with this newfound energy, the high slowly progresses from your mind throughout your body, easing any physical pains you might have been experiencing earlier in the day without you noticing it. This relaxing and almost sedative physical state will stay with you much longer than the creative energy will. You might find yourself searching for a comfy and quiet place to lay down where you can enjoy being stoned to the fullest extent.
