If you’re looking for a couch-lock effect, take a good look at Super Skunk. It gives the user a pleasant version of the couch-lock, however, given the fact that you remain clear in thought and capable of concentration.
It is a skunk lover’s dream, what with its extremely skunky smell designed specifically for this crowd. It is a hybrid but is mostly Indica in origin — it is roughly 20% Sativa, with the rest being Indica. Super Skunk is quite the popular hit worldwide, especially for people who are looking for a very relaxing high.
This particular version of Super Skunk is a feminized autoflower strain. Feminized means that the seeds should all be female (thus meaning growers won’t have to remove any male plants from their garden and can simply focus on growing) and autoflowering refers to when the marijuana plants go into their flowering phase.
Regular marijuana plants go into their flowering phase when the light begins to change with the seasons. In other words, these plants are photosensitive, and will naturally flower and ripen by the end of October (the exact timing depends on the climate and geographical location). Autoflowering plants, however, enter the flowering phase according to their own internal clock rather than according to the seasonal changes in the amount of sunlight.
Autoflowering marijuana plants can be very useful because indoor growers won’t need to alter the amount of sunlight they are exposing their plant. a Instead, the flowering phase starts automatically, and outdoor growers could potentially get more than one harvest out of a grow season (since they could do their first harvest in the middle of summer, for example). Autoflowering marijuana plants are generally smaller than other types of marijuana plants, and Super Skunk is no exception.

Growing Super Skunk Autoflower Strain Of Medical Marijuana
Super Skunk is an easy plant to grow, making it very popular to beginners and veterans alike. The autoflowering strain has a very short flowering period (only 48 days, on average), so multiple harvests are a definite possibility if you plant it right.
Super Skunk grows best indoors, although it will also do perfectly fine outdoors. It is a compact plant (its height will reach between 16 and 28 inches), and the yield will be approximately 5 ounces of marijuana per 3 square feet of plant.
Origin Of Super Skunk Autoflower Strain
Super Skunk was the result of breeding Skunk #1 (a hybrid) with an Afghani Indica. The breeder was Sensei Seeds. Sensei Seeds asserts that Super Skunk was the first hybrid that was bred in combination with an Afghani strain, which is what makes it different from the first, original Skunk (“Skunk #1”).
This creation is an upgrade due in no small part to the fact that its buds are denser and thicker. These buds are pungent and yet sweet, making for an overall pleasant effect.
Effects Of Super Skunk Autoflower Strain
Super Skunk autoflower gives its users a strong buzz that oozes with relaxation and yet clarity as well. It is a highly physical stone, making it an excellent choice for people wanting to really relax with a good, strong smoke.
Although the effects can easily vary from person to person if nothing else it is known for relieving stress very effectively. Its high is very body focused (thus the couch lock), which also keeps the head fresh, clear, and able to think straight.
Because of Super Skunk’s ability to keep your mind focused but your body slow and calm, it occasionally can lead to a feeling of nervousness or anxiety. The slowed bodily effects of Super Skunk can confuse a user whose brain and thoughts still remain clear. Some smokers of Super Skunk complain of the strong hunger that is attributed with it; this has been interpreted as both a positive and a negative effect, however.

Prescription pills for these issues always have side effects associated with them. For the most part, smoking Super Skunk might give you dry eyes or dry mouth, but other side effects are rare, and if experienced they are still mild and manageable.
Super Skunk is even the strain of choice for many cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy, since they may lose their appetite from those treatments.

Taste And Aroma Of Super Skunk Autoflower Strain
Super Skunk Autoflower is a skunk lover’s dream. It has that characteristic skunk smell, mixed with a sweet, citrus taste. The smell is overpowering for some and delightful for others. Some would describe it as smelling like fungi in the woods or a strong artisanal cheese.
The difference in the smell and the taste seem almost illogical. Its flavors are fruity and sweet, with earthiness and citrus blended in. This differs greatly from its pungent, skunky smell, although it maintains the skunk undertones when you taste it.
