Skunk #1 is a hybrid strain that has influenced cannabis on a global scale, parenting a horde of Skunk crosses since it first bloomed in ‘85. Sensi Seeds, who were called The Seed Bank at this time, bred Skunk #1 using diverse genetics from around the world. Central and South American, Afghani, and Thai varieties converged through an intricate selective breeding process that spanned several generations. Finally, the genetic cornerstone of countless cannabis hybrids was born.
Sensi’s indica-dominant Skunk #1 gave rise to several genetic variations; sativa-dominant renditions were later harvested from the gardens of Dutch Passion, Nirvana Seeds, and Royal Queen Seeds. Skunk #1’s sativa classification has become commonplace due to its soaring cerebral euphoria and sativa-like growth structure. As its name suggests, Skunk #1 buds radiate with an aromatic blend of sour skunkiness and subtle earthy notes. This hybrid offers elevated creativity through its high-energy buzz, while stress and appetite loss melt away with Skunk #1’s potency.
