Although Skunk is one of the most important cannabis strains in history, it is also the most misunderstood of all.

Skunk is not just a strain in itself, but a generic term for one of the strongest marijuana strains on the market.

Skunk the “Oldschool” Strain
Skunk comes in different forms. At the beginning of the 70s, the first super-talented skunk names began to make the rounds. To this day, Skunk is characterized by an almost overwhelming, earthy aroma, which must be carefully cleaned by activated carbon filters, if discretion is required. Due to the fact that Skunk has always been such a strong strain, all other quality strains have been referred to as Skunk in some circles. Even if by definition they are nothing like that.
The strength of Skunk produced today is so high that it represents the variety highlighted in most government health warnings! This originates from America where hemp was forbidden for a long time. Now, however, the various Skunk tribes are the subject of intense research as the scientific community investigates how many incredible medicinal properties this 70’s wonder plant possesses.
