Super Skunk was first released to the world in 1990. A group of breeders decided that they wanted to produce a Skunk strain like no other, one the likes of which the market had never seen before. Super Skunk is a strain that goes all the way back to its Afghan roots. It is the combination of the illustrious Skunk #1 with an exemplary version of its Afghanistan parent strain. To produce this beast of a strain took patience and perseverance. It is the result of a lot of hard work and trial and error – something often required when you are taking an already high quality strain to the next level. Their pain staking hard work paid off though, Super Skunk is a success in pretty much every way.
Those ingenious breeders created an award winning strain that still retains a lot of its admiration to this day. Upon its release in 1990 it instantly snapped up the High Times Harvest Festival award for the best indica dominant strain. It also stormed the market and became revered for its great commercial viability and connoisseur quality results. It became the new benchmark in Skunk genetics and has sired many new strains, remaining a favorite of Skunk veterans to this day.
