Skunk varieties, what's to it?
    #633038 - 07/28/12 06:35 PM (4 years, 4 months ago)

From what I know until now, Skunk #1 was the first true hybrid of an indica and a sativa which made it possible to grow weed with a body stone, yet trippy high indoors in a small room in a short time.
I figured that White Widow should also be called a Skunk type variety because it consists of Indian indica and Brazilian Sativa. Am I even close?

I wondered what's to it. Many vendor's sites claim that skunk in general has a very short flowering time, also the assumption arises that if a strain keeps his position so virally on the market, it can only be a legit legend.
I also read the Cheeses are all Skunk clones.

What about the other skunks? I read about skunk#5 and others, do they have the same parents or were they bred with totally different genetics?
I'm interested in this because I know that Skunk didn't earn it's name from its smell, but merely from the breeder's nickname.

So is it true that "Skunk" has such a short time til harvest and how is yield/potency versus some more recent strains?

Almost the thing about skunk #1 is that the breeder was able to make it a ibl strain so that every female plant can be a producer without going threw a ton of phenos.

The reason it's a legend is cause of the ibl thing. When a plant is a constant performer it becomes a legend so to say.

False. True Skunk #1 smells like you ran over a skunk with your car. Sometimes called RKS Skunk. The Sweet smelling skunks that pretty much suck hard are the versions that came out when the breeders in Amsterdam changed them around. The sweet smelling version is more popular there and the RKS versions here.

Yup, clones from a skunk #1 plant out of England.

Real skunk is always a performer just way overdone. RKS is hard to find when you can hold onto it.

so any newer seeds for skunk 1 are going to be this sweeter variety, or are you talking about the updated skunk varieties, like super skunk?

So what about the other "Skunk numbers"? And is Cheese an RKS Skunk?
