Afghan Skunk: Crossing between Afghani and Skunk #1
Afghan Skunk is a hybrid strain of cannabis with a genetic composition that is split between indica and sativa varieties. The strain was created via the crossbreeding of parent strains Afghani and Skunk #1. This genetic coupling has resulted in a plant that is a prime example of skunk genetics, one with a high THC content and high resin production.
Afghan Skunk is recognised for more than just the psychoactive high it produces when smoked. The strain offers the pleasant bonus of a variety of tastes that make the smoking experience that much more special and appreciated. When toking on a joint or blunt loaded with the processed buds of Afghan Skunk, smokers will experience the soothing tastes of earthiness and tea pass over the taste buds, leaving a potent after taste on the tongue.
The high generated from smoking Afghan Skunk is certainly on the more relaxing and calming end of the spectrum, making it ideal for home use during a relaxing afternoon or evening. The strain is known to cause users to experience feelings of happiness and to put them in an uplifting mindset. In contrast, it can also work to induce sleepiness and a deep sense of relaxation. These traits make the strain a great smoke when wanting to simply chill out, or when some much needed deep and restful sleep is required. This type of high also seems to have some utilisation among medical users, particularly for cases of stress, nausea, pain, and sleeping issues such as insomnia. The strain is also known to cause sensations of dry mouth, so be sure to keep a bottle of water or juice nearby to counteract these effects.
Afghan Skunk makes a good choice for beginner growers who are just starting out. The strain is both durable and hardy, a representation of resistant and resilient skunk genetics. These factors make things slightly easier for novices, and gives them some room for error when it comes to the growing process. If growing the strain indoors within a grow room or a grow tent, growers can expect to receive yields of around 400g per metre squared. Indoor plants typically reach heights of between 60-100cm. Outdoor plants launch up to heights of 300cm. The flowering time of the strain is approximately 8 weeks.
