Afghan Skunk is a very strongly indica-dominant (85%) marijuana strain which originated in the USA before being brought to Holland sometime during the 1980s. The Afghani was already a strong and hardy plant but the introduction of Skunk genetics resulted in a plant with tremendous hybrid vigour and enormous yields which had been quite unexpected at the time. Indoors yields are between 500 - 550 gr/m⊃2. Such is its vigour that in legal commercial grows clones (cuttings) are used and quickly put into flower in order to restrict its height to 30 cm. or so. A longer period of vegetative growth will reward the grower with larger plants. Indoors flowering takes 55 days; outdoors harvest will be during September in the northern hemisphere. Resin production is very good and you can expect a powerful indica effect, lifted by its sativa Skunk genetics, with THC levels around 18%. The flavour is sweet, fruity and slightly spicy with a penetrating aroma.
