Pineapple Skunk, also called Old Sweet Skunk back in the day, was created by Northern California’s Humboldt Seeds, which says it combined several Skunks with Big Bud, itself from Skunk lineage with Cannabis Cup wins. Other sources online peg the combo as Skunk #1 with Pineapple and a bit of Cheese. Either way, the resulting strain has about 15% THC in sweet, floral, pungent-smelling buds with fruity, piney flavors, according to Humboldt Seeds.

The breeder says Pineapple Skunk is a 70% indica crossbreed that’s easy to grow, does well indoors or outdoors, and takes about seven to eight weeks to flower. Sea of Green (SoG) and Screen of Green (ScrOG) growing techniques work particularly well with this cultivar. The stable hybrid delivers balanced physical and cerebral effects, though some online reviews have noted its potential for outcomes more on the sedating end of the spectrum.
