Afghan Skunk, also known as Afghani Skunk, is an indica-leaning hybrid first crossed between an Afghan and Skunk #1 by the breeder Expert Seeds. Originally bred in the United States, the Afghan Skunk strain was relocated to the Netherlands in the 1980s to escape prohibition. The creators of Afghan Skunk describe the strain as having a spicy aroma and sweet, fruity taste. According to Expert Seeds, the effects of this strain border between relaxing indica-like effects and a heady sativa high that stems from its Skunk lineage. THC levels for Afghan Skunk typically average about 18%. Afghan Skunk is said to be a vigorous grower, but also relatively easy to control and maintain healthy vegetation. Following a 55-day flowering cycle, indoor Afghan Skunk can yield between 500 to 550 grams per square meter, while when grown outdoors it is harvested in September in the Northern Hemisphere and can produce an impressive 900 grams to 1 kilogram, or about 2 pounds, per plant.
