It was created by crossing Skunk #1 with an original Afghani strain. With this cross, the breeder, Sensei Seeds, refers to the strain as the “first hybrid breeding project” with Afghani roots – an upgraded “super” version of its original Skunk #1.
Super Skunk is considered one of the classic marijuana strains. Its predecessor, Skunk, came up in the 1980s and was crowned the winner on the first Cannabis Cup. The Super Skunk offspring came up around 1990 by combining Skunk and more Afghani genes and has been an Amsterdam coffee shop staple ever since!
