Skunk #1 is an old school favorite that was first created by Sacred Seed Co. in the 1970's. Inbred since 1978, its become highly prized as one of the 1st true-breeding varieties, leading to its global circulation amongst breeders as a parent strain for many breeding programs. Skunk #1 shows little-to-no variation in expressed traits (<5%), allowing breeders to anticipate the traits of its offspring & engineer many of the most popular strains on the market today. What's your favorite strain? Whatever your answer, there's a high likelihood that Skunk #1 is an ancestor.
Skunk #1 is an easy-to-grow strain for beginners, & has long been considered a gold standard against which other strains are measured. A solid cross between Acapulco Gold (Mexican Sativa, 25%), Afghani Ind. (25%), & Colombian Gold (Sativa, 50%), it was originally bred to be cultivated indoors; however, this strain is hearty & perfectly suitable for outdoor cultivation as well. Skunk #1 has a high calyx-to-leaf ratio, with large, resinous buds punctuated by sparse foliage/slender leaves. This hybrid is also well-known for its strong resistance to molds/mildew, but be sure to take special care to eliminate excess moisture during the more sensitive flowering stages.
Treat her with care & Skunk #1 will not disappoint you come harvest time. Leaning on its Afghani heritage, expect a pungent aroma & a potency to match. You'll be rewarded with pleasant physical relaxation from head to toe, fostering a feeling of calm that benefits medical & recreational consumers alike. This hybrid provides a well-balanced set of effects, notably a soothing mind/body high that boosts creativity/happiness.

My Cloning Process
These clones come from a healthy, disease-free/pest-free mother chosen for her resilience to stressors, including tolerance of temperatures < 55 degrees F & speedy, vigorous recovery from injury/training. I'd be happy to send photos of the branch/topping to be cut beforehand to ensure your satisfaction if you request it.
Cuttings remain healthy branches of the mother plant until after your order has been received. Each cutting is handled with the utmost care & prepared for rooting before being packaged.
- Cuts are made at a 45-degree angle
- Larger leaf tips are snipped to limit transpiration
- The stem is lightly shaved to promote root formation, then soaked in rooting hormones & planted in a rockwool starter plug that's been soaked in distilled, pH 5.5 water
- Plastic is wrapped tightly around the plug to retain hydration & moisture in the root zone
- The cutting is wrapped in a Ziploc bag & packed carefully inside a light-proof container
All orders include free shipping via USPS First Class mail (delivers in 1-3 business days). If you'd prefer Priority Mail or PM Express, simply pay the difference in shipping & I'd be happy to accommodate your preference. I'll ship your order within 24 hours on any day of the week, but note that Sundays & holidays may result in slightly longer shipping times. Cuttings that are damaged or killed as a result of something I did will be replaced for free. Cuttings that are lost in shipping, killed from an extended shipping duration, or otherwise rendered non-viable through the shipping process will be faithfully evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Depending on the circumstances, you'll usually get a free replacement (possibly added to your next order); however, if I detect obvious deception or bad faith, your order will not be replaced! I hope & expect that we can maintain mutual trust within the community! :)
I accept donations by cryptocurrency (preferred, any coin), cash in the mail, or Cash App. New Strainly members without any positive ratings will be asked to pay in advance, & all other members need not pay until their cuttings are received!
