Indica Dominant Hybrid – 65% Indica / 35% Sativa
THC: 18% – 22%
White Skunk is a slightly indica dominant hybrid (65% indica/35% sativa) strain that was created by breeders at the infamous Sensi Seeds as a potent cross of the insanely popular White Widow X Super Skunk strains. This dank bud boasts a moderately high THC level that ranges from 18-20% on average and a sharp aroma and taste of bitter orange with a pungent hint of skunk. Users describe the White Skunk high as having an immediate uplifting cerebral effect that leaves you euphoric with waves of positive energy constantly ebbing throughout your mind and body. This is accompanied by a spacey distant cerebral effect that leaves you creative and very introspective but still functional if need be. You’ll be deeply relaxed and trapped in your own mind for some time after smoking this bud! Due to these potent effects, White Skunk is said to be an ideal strain for treating patients suffering from conditions such as chronic pain, stress, fatigue, and mild cases of depression. White Skunk buds have small to medium sized leafy dark olive green nugs with a spattering of dark orange furry hairs and rich purple undertones. These nugs are frosted with thick crystal trichomes and a fine layer of sweet sticky resin.
Full body relaxation is only one of the many benefits of this strain. Recreational users love this bud’s immediate cerebral waves that continue throughout the high, ebbing and flowing and bringing with it energetic bursts and creative enlightenment. You’ll find in your downtime a bit of introspectiveness, but as with waves it comes and goes and is often replaced by the need to share ideas. This bud is best used when you aren’t needed to be on your A game, but if you need to be functional White Skunk won’t prevent that.
Medical users love this strain as an aide with symptoms of mood disorders such as depression, bipolar, stress, or mild anxiety. Its ability to uplift and soothe the spirit make it ideal for these conditions. As it is very stimulating, it is great for nausea, digestion, and increasing appetite. The sedative properties make it stellar for use in mild to moderate aches and pain, as well as headaches and muscle tension.
As if this wasn’t an easy enough choice by now, you’ll love this strain for the simplicity of its growth as well. Like most Skunk varieties, this self-blooming plant is resilient to most pests and molds and is a great selection for beginner growers. It boasts bountiful harvests and has a relatively short flowering cycle at just 7 weeks to full maturity.
Whether you’d like relief from chronic fatigue or other afflictions or are just looking to get over a creative slump, this is a spectacular strain that exceeds all expectations of its parentage. It brings solid flavors and aromas, but overshadows both of those attributes with its stellar experience. Users from novice to advanced love White Skunk and for good reason. Newer users are recommended to proceed slowly for maximum enjoyment and minimal unwanted side effects.
Growth pattern of White Skunk Feminized by White Label
White Label’s White Skunk Feminized, like the other expressions of this strain, is 65% indica. As a hybrid, it has the short flowering time, and compact size of most indica cannabis plants. However, the 35% sativa element is evident too, in the open bud structure, and reduced lateral branching.
When grown in pots, the size is likely to be smaller. Growers looking for an even more compact plant can shorten the vegetation period. Despite their usual short stature, it is possible to make the plants achieve impressive heights. If grown in a warm or temperate climate in free soil, it’s not uncommon for them to reach as two metres.
White Skunk Feminized is a reliably homogenous strain. This means it’s easy to grow and maintain, even for novice gardeners. The plants respond well to topping, which is useful for growers looking to encourage more branching. They’re also well-suited to lollipopping, and the Sea of Green (SOG) and Screen of Green (SCROG) techniques.
Yields are usually impressive, which is another aspect that attracts growers. White Skunk Feminized can be cultivated indoors or outside. However, it doesn’t respond well to cooler, shorter summers. Those living in cold climates may prefer to select the Automatic version of this strain instead.
Effect, taste, and smell of White Skunk Feminized by White Label
The scent of White Skunk Feminized is sweeter than the typical skunk smell. It’s distinctly citrussy, and the fruity notes get stronger as the plants get closer to harvesting. Expect to detect hints of orange and pineapple, particularly after curing the buds.
This citrus flavour carries through to consumption. White Skunk Feminized by White Label not only has a pleasant flavour, it also produces a mellow, laid-back effect, thanks to the indica genetics. The sativa adds stimulation, giving the user a cheerful lift. This makes it ideal for daytime use, as well as in the evening.

White Widow X Super Skunk
Legendary for its off-the-charts resin production, White Widow is a staple sativa-dominant hybrid with powerful energizing effects. It was produced by Dutch veterans Green House Seeds in the 1990s as a cross between Brazilian indica and South Indian sativa landraces. At the time, the underground cannabis market consisted mostly of early hybrids like Northern Lights and Haze, but White Widow has since joined the ranks of these legendary strains, winning an early High Times Cannabis Cup in 1995 and several awards since. Bred specifically for a high trichome count, White Widow is especially valued in the production of hash. This strain has an average THC composition of 20%, with some phenotypes exceeding that amount.
Buds of White Widow are chunky and somewhat conical and tapered. The bud structure of the flowers are more sativa than indica, with a loose and fluffy texture that can be broken up somewhat easily despite its stickiness. The leaves are spring green with few visible pistils.
Super Skunk is an Indica-dominant cannabis strain with potent body effects. Its parent, Skunk #1, is a reliable and legendary strain that first created Shiva Skunk. Three years later came Super Skunk, which the breeder, Sensi Seeds, calls the first hybrid breeding project with Afghani roots. The breeder says that Super Skunk adds potency, weight, and flavor to Skunk #1 and Shiva Skunk.
The company continues its experiments in Afghan hybrids, as do other companies in the U.S. and abroad. Breeders are chasing the dream of a perfect Afghani genotype that matches Skunk #1. Their passion stems from Skunk #1’s global influence since the 1970s and it’s crosses that span generations including Acapulco Gold and Colombian Gold.
