Today I am reviewing another batch of the delicious Super Skunk from one of my favorite dispensaries in San Diego, Alpha Medic. This strain definitely holds true to its name; it is known for producing an aroma similar to a skunk on steroids. The taste of Super Skunk is nothing to get that excited about, but the euphoric high and spacey zone the bud creates is sure to create a memorable smoke session for patients of all tolerances.
Super Skunk is lab tested by SC Labs at 19.1 % THC and 2.4% CBD, putting up good test result numbers. Would not recommend this for mornings unless you are specifically looking to wake up slowly. Stoney but uplifting effects.
When I popped the top of the container open, I was immediately overwhelmed with a sharp cheddar cheese smell. This aroma was accented by a pleasantly sweet, yet skunky stench. The pungent cheese smell is reminiscent of the white cheddar popcorn smell from the batch of Cheese I reviewed earlier this month. This peaked my curiosity, and I began doing some research to find out why.
Super Skunk Cannabis Strain Effects
After a little digging, I discovered where the cheese smell was coming from. The genetics of Super Skunk link back to Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 and Afghanistan. Skunk #1 is a cross of Mexico, Colombia, and Afghanistan. Afghanistan is an original strain, so when Skunk #1 was back-crossed with its true Afghani parents, it created a ‘super’ hybrid, hence the name, Super Skunk.
On the other hand, the famous Big Buddha Cheese strain is a phenotype of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1 and Afghani. They have the same parents, no wonder they have similar smells, tastes, and effects! The story behind Cheese is sort of a miracle. It originated in 1988 as one unique phenotype that grew impressively large buds from a packet of Sensi Seeds Skunk #1. The plant was quickly cloned and named “Cheese,” because of the buds very distinct cheesy odor.
The dispensary categorizes this strain on their menu as a Sativa strain. However, after looking at the strain genetics (and actually smoking the strain myself), I found the Super Skunk strain to have a noticeably strong couch-lock effect. This full-body warp makes the Super Skunk strain popular among medical marijuana patients seeking for a way to treat minor aches and pains. It’s also revered for its ability to significantly boost ones appetite.
