Traits of Afghan Skunk and Afghan Skunk seeds
Born and bred in the United States, this flower is a sleepy hybrid cross between Afghani and Skunk cultivars. Afghani is a landrace indica strain from the Kush Mountain region. The term “Skunk” can refer to either high-THC hybridized cannabis cultivars, or it may refer to members of the genetic Skunk family.
As a result, this marijuana strain has inherited a potent indica-dominant heritage. This strain will express broad leaf indica characteristics and is relatively short, paying tribute to its Afghani heritage.
A pungent, skunk-like aroma shines through with this flower, providing the first hint as to its psychoactive effects. This strong-armed strain tends to produce higher levels of the terpene (aroma molecule) myrcene, which is responsible for the sedative and psychedelic effects of this potent flower.
Often featuring an average of 16 percent THC, this strain offers consumers a powerful experience with moderate amounts of THC. Though this strain is not the highest THC producer in the world, it’s wise not to underestimate the potent effects of this intoxicating plant.
Afghan Skunk seeds are currently available online and may ship to select regions. In the United States, Afghan Skunk clones may be available for purchase at select dispensaries.
