Cheese and Big Bud are among the most popular lineages in the cannabis industry. These strains do share one thing in common - deep within are the genes of Skunk #1.

Origin of Skunk

Back in the early 60s, the existing strains were landraces grown outdoors and often have long flowering times. A group of breeders had been experimenting, attempting to stabilize the ones with remarkable genetics.

One of the first strains developed was a cross between a female Colombian Gold and a male Afghani. This particular hybrid boasted of mostly Sativa cerebral effects but has the physical structure and growth pattern of an Indica. As such, it was able to produce high yields, has a quick flowering time, and has a low leaf to flower ratio. More importantly, its effects were quite intense. Years later, Acapulco Gold became the third strain crossed with the hybrid to stabilize further and enhance its yields.

Constituted by 25% Indica (Afghani), and 75% Sativa (25% Acapulco Gold and 50% Colombian Gold), it came to be called Skunk #1. It was the world's first commercial strain and the winner of the first-ever Cannabis Cup held in 1988. Over the last four decades, it is arguably the most iconic strain in the history of cannabis breeding and cultivation.

Skunk #1 Feminized Seeds

From the time of its inception, Skunk #1 has thrilled its consumers with an energizing high. Moreover, it also helps promote mental clarity, heightened focus, and creativity. Complementing the intense cerebral effects is a gentle, soothing body buzz. These uplifting properties augment its naturally-occurring medicinal properties that alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, and pain. One signature trait of this hybrid is the pungent, citrusy scent it emits, blending into an earthy odor with a spicy, musky note.

Homegrown Cannabis Co. provides feminized seeds of Skunk #1. It grows beautifully into a compact plant that reaches 100-180 cm tall. Because of its hardy nature and excellent resistance to pests, molds, and other diseases, this strain is manageable even by beginners. Once the flowering period starts, it lasts between 8-10 weeks. Depending on the skill level and conditions affecting growth, its yield ranges from 300-500 grams per square meter.

If necessary, or preferred, Skunk #1 auto-flowering seeds is also an option. From the time the seedlings emerge, it takes only 6-9 weeks to reach full maturity. Its yield per square meter ranges from 250-300 grams.

The 9 Best Skunk #1 Hybrids

No other strain has influenced and given rise to new hybrids as much as Skunk #1. By itself, it is impossible to find a weakness. More importantly, using it as a genetic cornerstone has paved the way for possibilities that never existed until it came along.

Big Bud {Skunk x Afghani}

Not many strains can match Big Bud when it comes to the enormity of its size, hence the name. Upon consumption, it delivers an uplifting, relaxing buzz. Depending on the dosage, its effects could lead to laziness to complete couch-lock. Besides excelling at relieving stress and pain, its sedating qualities can also help cut sleep latency.

Big Bud is available as feminized seeds and fast version seeds.

Critical Mass {Afghani x Skunk #1}

Skunk #1 goes back to its root in this cross with an Afghani. One phenotype that emerged, and has since been stabilized, is Critical Mass. A happy, relaxing hybrid, it is also an excellent analgesic and anti-inflammatory. Its most remarkable feature, though, is the production of enormous buds. This trait alone makes it valuable to commercial growers as well as breeders seeking to create hybrids capable of high yields.

Critical Mass is available as feminized seeds and auto-flowering seeds.

Early Skunk {Skunk #1 x Early Pearl}

Early Skunk is yet another Skunk #1 descendant that has won the Cannabis Cup. Following the initial onset of a euphoric buzz, it puts the muscles at ease, leaving one fully relaxed. A cross with Early Pearl, it boasts of quick flowering time and massive yields. Moreover, it has excellent resistance to molds, making cultivation easy enough that even beginners could raise it successfully.

Early Skunk is available as feminized seeds.

Upcoming Early Skunk hybrids:

Exodus Cheese {Skunk #1}

One strain that completely dominated the United Kingdom is Exodus Cheese. Its origin is vague, but the consensus is that it is a phenotype of Skunk #1. It is an incredibly powerful hybrid, capable of delivering an intense experience. Mostly, its effects are energizing and euphoric. Eventually, though, a numbing buzz spreads throughout the body, bringing calm and sedation.

Hektol {Skunk x Skunk #1 x Mazar}

Hektol is a three-way cross - Skunk #1 backcrossed to a Skunk, and the infusion of Mazar. It leans towards the Sativa, delivering an intense cerebral stimulation, and complemented by a smooth body buzz. For home growers, this is arguably the best energizing hybrid for home cultivation. One reason is that it has a quick flowering time, lasting only 6 to 8 weeks, while also providing an insane 650 grams per square meter.

Hektol is available as feminized seeds.


LSD {Mazar I Sharif x Skunk #1}

There is an ounce of truth in the notoriety of this strain named after the hallucinogenic drug LSD. For one, it packs up to 24% THC. Thus, the effects it delivers can be intense. Mostly, this involved a profound euphoric rush and possibly visual and auditory distortions. It is also a popular choice for home cultivation as the yield can reach 600 grams per square meter.

LSD is available as feminized seeds.

Master Kush F {Skunk #1 x Hindu Kush}

Back in the 90s, Master Kush made waves by winning the 1992 and 1993 Cannabis Cup. Its dominance did not end, though, as it won again in 2012. The primary reason is genetics, as it incorporates the pure Hindu Kush into the genes, resulting in exemplary traits. This profoundly relaxing hybrid is also unique in that it has four sets of chromosomes as opposed to two. At home, under the right conditions, it can yield up to 500 grams per square meter.

Master Kush is available as feminized seeds.


Super Skunk {Skunk #1 x Afghani}

In more ways than one, Super Skunk shares a close relationship with Big Bud and Critical Mass, being a cross with an Afghani landrace. It is a profoundly relaxing strain that uplifts the mood and ushers in the sense of happiness. Moreover, it is an excellent pain reliever and could also mitigate the symptoms of anxiety and depression. As a genetic cornerstone, it has contributed to the creation of the Great White Shark, Lavender, and Somango.

Super Skunk is available as feminized seeds and auto-flowering seeds.

Tangie {California Orange x Skunk #1}

The smell of tangerine is the signature of this widely-recognized strain. Much of its effects are cerebral - euphoric and energizing. Gradually, the high spreads down to the body and towards the extremities, easing away tensions. Even at its peak, Tangie does not cause a slowdown in physical activities. Instead, it clears the head and keeps one motivated in finishing tasks or chores.

Tangie is available as feminized seeds.
