Despite being one of the most important cannabis families in history, Skunk is also just about the most misunderstood of all. Or at least, that’s the case in many regions like Great Britain, where any cannabis of high quality and potency is often referred to as Skunk. So rather than a strain in its own right, Skunk has become a generic term for the strongest, most potent weed on the market.
In reality however, Skunk is in fact a supremely important and completely independent strain of cannabis in its own right. Every form of true Skunk may share the same powerful and potent properties, but decades of careful breeding and engineering have brought about the creation of dozens of modern day masterpieces.
