What is Skunk Weed?
You have probably heard the term ‘skunk weed,’ but where does it come from? Well, its origins may have different roots depending on the nation. In the United States, for example, the meaning is derived from everyone’s favorite, stinky liquid-spraying mammal, the Skunk.
Something ‘skunky’ is denoted as a good kind of ‘stinky’ in the cannabis realm. An old-school marijuana reference, at this point, the term ‘skunk weed’ is often used to describe the smell associated with weed.
Meanwhile, the word appears to have taken a different context in the UK. Media in the UK refers to any high-THC variety of cannabis as Skunk, regardless of its genetic heritage. It is widely used in the UK as a generic term for seedless, non-pollinated marijuana.
So, for some, ‘skunk’ is simply a synonym for cannabis. Unfortunately, this generalization is highly inaccurate. It also helps to undermine the true genetic identity that Skunk possesses.
The Skunk strain dates back to the 1970s, an independent variety all its own. In the USA, growers bred tall; potent Sativa strains with short, mountain hashish strains from Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Later, the result was appropriately named Skunk #1. It was the first Skunk stabilized as a true breeding option. Today, it continues to be one of the most predictable and consistent strains available.
What does skunk weed look like?
Skunk weed flowers are small and white, growing about 1 meter (3 feet) tall. The leaves of skunk weed are large and spoon-shaped, and the plant has a woody stem.
