The skunky father of all skunks. Skunk #1 has been around since the late ’70s, and has been quite important in the cannabis world. Back in the day, different international genetics like Columbian Gold, Afghani, and Acapulco Gold were used to make Skunk #1. Since then, it’s been a strain that has created many other strains. As the name suggests, it’s skunky in smell, with a bit of earth.
