Sam the Skunkman brought the Skunk#1 seeds to Holland in 1982 and soon after, the famous Super Sativa Seed Club started working with these seeds.
Aladdin’s Skunk is a selection of Skunk#1 that has been kept pure.
It is an inbred line (IBL) that shows both genetic and sexual stability. All the plants have a similar smell, bud structure, and flowering time. Apart from the fact that the final height of the plants can vary, it is an incredibly uniform variety.
Contrary to popular belief, the original Skunk#1 is not skunky but rather very sweet and slightly fruity. Skunk#1 was named that way only because skunky plants were very trendy in the 70s and ’80s.
What people know as the Roadkill Skunk (RKS) is not a Skunk#1 but another line.
Indica And Sativa Characteristics
Although the Aladdin’s Skunk flowers very quickly and produces rather dense floral clusters, it displays elegant foxtail-style buds thus revealing its Sativa heritage.
Likewise, the plants stretch more than most Afghanicas and the buds are quite long. However, Aladdin’s Skunk is very fast flowering both indoors and outdoors. The plants are usually ready for harvest at the end of September.
As they enter the second half of the flowering period, many specimens will grow leaves with double serrations.
Growers can expect a high calyx-to-leaf ratio as well as a high trichome production. The resin glands are very gooey, and greasy and almost feel wet. The Aladdin’s Skunk is also easy to trim and has a great bag appeal. When looking at the glistening sticky Skunk flowers with beautiful bright orange hairs, it is hard to imagine that this strain dates back to the 1970s!
This Skunk doesn’t just smell and look good but it is also very tasty. The flavor is very similar to the smell, very sweet with fruity undertones.
Aladdin’s Skunk is a pure old Skunk#1 line. It is an old-school classic from the 1970s and is still trendy today! Being one of the very first indoor varieties ever, this strain has revolutionized the cannabis scene. It is both great for beginners looking for an easy plant to grow and for breeders wanting a highly stable strain to work with.
