Some thoughts may seem more appealing and engaging than they usually would be to a sober mind. As such, Early Skunk Fem can stimulate interesting conversations with like-minded people in light social settings or serve as an icebreaker among new acquaintances. The cerebral vitality from this strain may also ease consumers into open-ended, creative, or analytical tasks.
Early Skunk Fem is a hybrid of the infamous Skunk #1 with Early Pearl. Despite its Indica-leaning genetics (65% Indica / 35 Sativa), the budchild carries daytime effects best enjoyed on lazy afternoons — when you have free time to take it easy and get buzzed up. The high is euphoric, marked by relaxing yet sociable tendencies, making it an excellent flower for group sessions, lights social settings, or hitting the outdoors for a short hike. Additionally, the strain gets your creative juices flowing while improving focus. You’ll feel ambitious and may want to start creating works of art. Relief from chronic pain, stress, and depression are also to be expected.
The buds of Early Skunk Fem has a THC range swinging between 15% to 22%. It boasts a sweet smell and taste accented by minor hints of fresh rose, tree fruit, and peppery spices. The cannabis plant can be grown indoors and out and is expected to grow tall.
Cultivators must plan where to grow Early Skunk Fem, as it matures tall and requires a space that can accommodate its height. Cannabis plants double or even triple in size during the flowering phase, so consider that when deciding how long to veg. The pot size also determines how small or large your plant grows. If a tall one is not desired, we recommend performing stretch-limiting training techniques, too, as an added measure.
Taking more hits than you can handle may also cause paranoid thoughts. People susceptible to paranoia and those sensitive to THC are most prone to this side effect. To prevent such experience, start low and go slow.
Topping and scrogging will keep Early Skunk Fem at a moderate height while also boosting its bud production. Through topping, apical dominance, which gives its Christmas tree-like shape, is eliminated, forcing the plant to bush out. Scrogging then requires weaving the branches through the wire mesh to develop an even canopy. With the lateral branches exposed and receiving more light, their colas mature bigger, resulting in increased yields. Another advantage of the ScrOG method is the branch support it provides, preventing breakage and harvest losses.
Early Skunk Fem is suitable for growers of all skill levels, even those with a black thumb. The plant is straightforward to grow and resistant to mold, but it must be raised around optimal conditions to achieve ideal results. Despite being Indica-dominant, it has relatively thin, Sativa-like foliage and thin-fingered leaves. You may remove unwanted branches and leaves to reduce light and nutrient competitions, but make sure not to take out too much as it lessens the plant’s ability to absorb light energy.
Sensi Seeds’ Early Skunk Regular cannabis seeds are mainly indica, and they display many of the classic features of this type of plant. Growers can expect to see resin-coated flowers, and sizeable yields. Early Skunk requires a level of know-how when cultivating. Experienced growers can achieve good results with supercropping and training, as long as they start early in the vegetation process.
While other strains with similar buds have issues with rot and mould, Early Skunk is highly resilient, even in cold, wet climates. This is due to the hybridisation of Skunk #1 with Early Pearl, resulting in a robust, mould-resistant end-product. This makes it an excellent choice for growers who want to cultivate their cannabis plants in colder, damper climates.
Early Skunk is an original Sensi Seeds strain, bred from the award-winning Skunk #1 and outdoor favourite Early Pearl. It’s a 65% indica, 35% sativa blend for a relaxed yet uplifting effect. The plants can grow extremely large, especially in free soil. They also produce massive buds. We bred Early Skunk to resist mould and bud-rot, to avoid the risk of growers losing their harvest even in cold, wet summers.
The generous size of the plants, combined with the expansive branches, results in a large harvest. It’s easy for the top colas to reach over 30 cm. Expect the buds to be large and dense too.
Early Skunk cannabis buds are also valued for their flavour, and the effects they produce when consumed. Smokers usually report a calm, contented high, which inspires more creative thought. Early Skunk Regular provides strong effects which, given a good hot summer, can be comparable to indoor grown cannabis.
