Skunk Kush Feminized is a 60% indica / 40% sativa hybrid with impressive genetics. Being a blend of pure Afghani Hindu Kush and Skunk #1, it’s also known as Hindu Skunk,. Skunk Kush Feminized seeds produce vigorous and high-performing plants. They also provide an intense, full-bodied stone. Several generations of cross-breeding of the original Skunk Kush mean that this strain has a distinctly different personality from the rest of our Kush family.
Growth pattern of Skunk Kush Feminized
Skunk Kush Feminized cannabis seeds produce large-yielding plants, with an average flowering time. The strain is marginally indica-dominant (60% indica / 40% sativa), and this hybridisation offers the best of both worlds – vigorous growth and solid performance, combined with a potent, heady high.
The seeds are feminized, which is useful for novice growers, as it means there’s no need to identify male plants and remove them. It’s also advantageous for those looking for an easier grow. However, Skunk Kush Regular is a better option for growers wanting to produce seeds for further cultivation.
One of the major advantages to growing Skunk Kush Feminized is that it has a short flowering time; ideal for those who want to generate a harvest in rapid time. The flowering stage takes around 50 to 60 days whether indoors, or outside. If growing the plants in a greenhouse, expect to harvest them around late October.
The plants’ moderate height is another bonus, especially if they’re being cultivated in a grow-room, or in a greenhouse or place with a low roof. Typically, they don’t extend beyond 150 cm, with most of the growing taking place during the flowering period. In fact, usually the plants are around 110 to 140 cm, which is an easy-to-manage height.
Feminized Skunk Kush’s indica parentage is evident in the plant’s structure; thick stems, with dark-green, leathery leaves. However, Skunk #1 is detectable too; in the size, and the vigorous growth pattern. The buds form grape-like bundles, and the flowers are ‘towering’ in form.
If extensive yields are a top priority, this is definitely a strain to consider. When cultivated in the right conditions, Skunk Kush Feminized produces abundant buds, and satisfyingly large harvests. Thick, Afghani-Skunk nuggets are to be expected when cultivating female plants, and also swollen calyxes. These generate dense, semi-open buds with a generous weight to them.
The buds also produce plenty of resin, thanks to their large surface area. In fact, some of the trichomes are so bulbous that they actually seem to expand and change colour from day to day, especially near harvest-time.
Skunk Kush Feminized grows best in warmer climates, and thrives in long summers. They’re susceptible to rot and mould, and as such, don’t do well in damper, cooler locations. Keen growers will be pleased to know that this strain responds well to various cultivation techniques, such as lollipopping, supercropping, and the SOG (Sea of Green) and SCROG (Screen of Green) methods.
Effect, taste, and smell of Skunk Kush Feminized
Most people agree that Skunk Kush Feminized produces a powerful, all-encompassing high. It’s relaxing and calming, thanks to its 60% indica heritage. It’s sativa heritage provides an activating effect, with some noticing increased energy and excitement after consuming it.
The strain not only packs a potent punch when consumed; it’s also got a distinctive scent. While the plants are growing, people usually notice a hint of spice and sweetness, with the familiar musky-skunk aroma coming through too. There’s also a hint of citrus, which gets gradually stronger as the buds get closer to harvesting.
This fresh, citrus flavour carries through to the taste too, along with a hint of menthol, which is pleasantly invigorating.
