Award Winning Cannabis Strains
Super Skunk - Sensi Seeds
Taking the Skunk family back to its Afghani roots, Super Skunk adds flavour, weight and potency to the always-reliable Skunk #1. Despite being released three years after Shiva Skunk, Super Skunk qualifies as the first serious project to breed a next-level cannabis hybrid from the groundbreaking SK#1. Experimental Afghan-Skunk hybrids are featured in the very first Seed Bank catalogues and the breeding project aimed at finding the perfect Afghani genotype to match Skunk #1 goes back further still.
Throughout the Super Skunk project, Sensi breeders aimed to create a strain whose commercial potential, potency and hybrid vigour had never been seen before. Over the years, a large number of Afghani cultivars were crossed with both males and females of the true-breeding Skunk #1. Many wonderful plants were produced, though never with exactly the blend of qualities sought by the project. The achievements in cannabis hybridisation made in the late Eighties meant that the standards for professional ganja were steadily moving upwards which, naturally, raised the bar for what was expected from the Super Skunk program.
It was the expansion of the Sensi Seed Bank gene library at the end of that decade - in particular, the range of fresh Afghanica cultivars which became available to Sensi breeders – that made the current version of our Skunk-Afghani hybrid possible. In 1990, Super Skunk in its final form was released to great acclaim, picking up the mostly-Indica Cannabis Cup straight away.
Super Skunk’s performance remains unchanged to this day, always living up to her super vigorous, super potent and super fragrant reputation. With just a little encouragement, females build colossal, crystalline colas indoors or in the greenhouse. Super Skunk bears the rare distinction of being one of the only cannabis strains that may require more experience to smoke than she does to grow!

Sweet Purple is a hybrid of 3 varieties: a purple variety, an early-finishing / large-yielding Dutch variety and an exceptionally potent strain. As the name implies, this strain most of the time keeps the coloration of the purple parent, while gaining sweetness and potency from the Dutch part of the family. This mostly Indica mix was especially bred for outdoor gardens in temperate climates.
Sweet Purple is a strong variety that has the additional benefit of resisting mold. These vigorous plant stand up to cold, wet climates and grow to a full height of about 2.5 meters (8 feet) and can yield 500 grams per fully matured plant. Sweet Purple shows some variation, and potency can vary from average to wow from one plant to another. The coloration also ranges, with some plants turning completely purple while on others, only the buds take on that royal hue.
Sweet Purple has a strong herbal, minty bouquet underlined by a sweet tone. The high is a pleasant bodily sensation, but also retains a lucid edge that may increase your sense of concentration.

Flowering time: end Sep/beg Oct (n.L.)
Suitable environment: Outdoors between 55º n.L. and 55º s.L..
Yield: 500 g per plant outdoors

This strain, with its extremely sweet and smooth flavors and powerful effects, was an instant hit with discriminating smokers. What makes Sweet Tooth even more exceptional is that it’s easy to grow, produces high yields of large, potent colas, sticky with resin, and is mold resistant. Just give the plant some room, as it grows medium tall with significant strong side branches, and the results will reflect its exotic genetic origins and the rigorous selection process that made this advanced strain possible. Sweet Tooth offers a heady, yet pleasantly relaxing high that lasts.
Flowering time: 65-75
