This true breeding strain is a cross consisting of Afghani, Mexican Acapulco Gold and Columbian Gold genetics. It was the first stabilized marijuana hybrid in the Dutch cannabis world and has been bred since 1978. This branch of the cannabis tree has become notorious due to its potency and now the term "skunk" is used to refer to any very potent or powerful ganja.
This plant is characterized by large fan leaves and short internode gaps that explode into dense, rounded-bud clusters. Flowering is very fast and an extremely high flower-to-leaf ratio makes this plant susceptible to mold in the last six weeks of flowering. Skunk plants also gain more height than pure Indicas when blooming.
