The Ultimate Stress Relieving Strain
Even those outside the cannabis community have heard of Skunk #1, and so we think it’s safe to say that Super Skunk Autoflower, as a descendant, deserves the title of a world-class strain. Classically skunky-sweet in aroma, this herb’s fast-acting, feel-good high is beloved on the 420 scene by Indica-lovers, despite her more well-balanced hybrid nature.
Blending Skunk #1 with Afghani, this baby is pungent, powerful and frankly, the perfect stress reliever for a long and tiring day.
More potent and full of flavor than the original Skunk strain, Super Skunk Auto is reliable for her relaxing effects and blissful tranquility and was even bestowed with the Cannabis Cup in 1990, when she was still new on the market.
Abundant with recreational and medicinal effects, this weed can soften the limbs and muscles of any seasoned stoner to lock them to the couch and relieve mental troubles and physical aches and pains alike.
Now in an autoflowering variant, any grower with an ounce of common sense can rear this mighty specimen to maturity. With Ruderalis genetics thrown into the mix, Super Skunk became even more super, with simple beans that can be cultivated successfully by amateur growers. Resistant to diseases, pests, and molds, she’s also hardy and high yielding, without relying on light cycles to flower.
Flavor and Fragrance of Super Skunk Autoflower
You don’t call a strain Super Skunk Autoflower if it isn’t skunky, right? Yes, much like her parent strain, there’s a distinct skunkiness to this herb that’s dank and woody with a hint of sweetness that tempers the earthy, fungal notes.
In flavor, this weed is entirely different as when she’s combusted, she’s sweeter and far fruitier on the tongue that you’d expect, underpinned with an earthy citrus taste that’s more intense on the exhale.
A perfectly balanced hybrid strain for ultimate stress relief and relaxation, Super Skunk Auto delivers both as a Sativa and an Indica. The initial effects manifest as a blissful, euphoric high that fills your mind with happiness and positivity for an instant mood boost.
Within a few minutes of this cerebral effect usher out negativity, the warm and relaxing physical element of this high will begin to creep in. Careful, it’s potent enough to lock you to the couch if you’re not paying attention!
For tokers who want a night of chilling out, this body-stone works in perfect harmony with the blissful mental side of Super Skunk’s high to transport you to tranquility with just a few hits. Hard-hitting as she is, seasoned smokers should watch out, as more than a couple of tokes will knock flat even the veterans of the cannabis community with ease.
If you’re looking for a social strain, then Super Skunk Auto might be your best bet, since she’s also capable of inducing some serious giggle fits and feelings of elation that serve to enhance the mood of any party and encourage sociability, chattiness and laughs.
As with many strains, there’s the possibility of adverse effects with this weed. In lower doses, this will remain limited to the usual dry, red eyes and cottonmouth that can be alleviated by drinking plenty of water. Consume more, and this can worsen to headaches, dizziness, anxiety and paranoia - especially in those who are sensitive to THC.
Medical Uses of Super Skunk Autoflower
A hybrid exhibiting physical and cerebral effects, Super Skunk Auto also embodies various properties that make her an excellent medicinal marijuana (MMJ) choice. Since her uplifting effect boosts the mood within moments of lighting up, this herb can be of therapeutic benefit to those with such psychological troubles as stress, anxiety and depression.
With anti-inflammatory and analgesic qualities, this pot can ease the symptoms and pains of such conditions as arthritis, glaucoma, muscle cramps and PMS, in addition to sedating those with insomnia into a deep and restful sleep.
Most marijuana will give you the munchies, and Super Skunk is no different, capable of boosting the hunger of any patient suffering from lack of appetite or nausea, be that due to an eating disorder or a side effect of chemotherapy treatment.
Growing Super Skunk Autoflower Seeds
Most autoflowering strains are fairly simple to grow, but Super Skunk Autoflower is not only straightforward but provides huge harvests too. When you think about it, it’s no wonder that these little beans are popular with cultivators new to growing marijuana, looking to develop their skills with an easy strain, and her auto traits make everything just a touch simpler.
Resistant and resilient, Super Skunk Auto is unlikely to succumb to pests, mildews and molds or any of the diseases that commonly target cannabis plants. Able to thrive indoors or out, she doesn’t rely on changing light cycles to shift from the vegging to the flowering phase and also doesn’t need any additional nutrition.
With dense, pale green nugs, glittering trichomes, scant leaves and sparse pistils (hairs), Super Skunk Auto’s appearance only serves to emphasize the size of her singular, huge cola. Fairly short in stature, this plant isn’t likely to grow taller than 100 centimeters in height even when fully mature, so she’s well suited to an indoor grow room or a small grow tent.
After 8 or 9 weeks of flowering, these little beauties are ready for harvesting and will reward you with around 450 grams of buds per square meter. Do remember though that this stuff’s skunky aroma is strong even before she’s dried and cured, and indoor growers may want to consider an odor filtration system to control the smell.
If growing Super Skunk Auto outdoors, aim for a warm, dry and sunny environment. Though alfresco growing will lower yield size, and multiple harvests are recommended to improve this. Harvest time should fall around the middle of September in the northern hemisphere, and yields will come in at around 500 grams per plant.
Super Skunk Autoflower is… super. What else is there to say? With Afghani and Skunk #1 as parents, expectations were high, but we can honestly say she improves upon both to provide an instantly recognizable skunky scent, uniquely fruity taste and a lifelong impression on tokers when it comes to sedating, relaxing effects.
Improving the mood within moments of lighting up, this pot takes tranquility to a new level, inducing a blissfully long-lasting couchlock that’s an absolute joy to discover. And such properties make this herb a potent MMJ choice for relieving pain as well as stress and anxiety - further explaining her worldwide popularity as an all-round good time.
Cultivating this little star at home is a breeze, with Ruderalis genetics removing the requirement to monitor and adjust light cycles, making it possible for any amateur to grow this ganja gem to fruition. Super Skunk requires only the barest amount of care and attention to thrive and yields well for your efforts in 8 to 10 weeks of flowering.
