WHAT IS THE SKUNK-IST PLANT YOU HAVE EVER GROWN ?

Depends on what you mean by Skunk-est I guess... if we're just talking general stanky rankness the clone only Mass Super Skunk I have going right now is up there for certain. But it's still not like super real Skunk spray smell. I really haven't grown anything yet that hits that old Skunk weed smell. Randomly my Blackened Oranges pheno from Useful was might funky too, but more gym socks and mothballs then Skunk.

I just grew some Sensi Skunk and it was nice smoke but not very skunky at all. More of a sweet Skunk. Ive got a pack of their Shiva Shanti to try soon.

The moonrocker I'm growing now is pretty skunky...it is why I selected it...I have had many plants of the past that I have lost that were very very skunky...but sadly they were often f2s of other stuff and an outlier pheno pops up out of nowhere SKUNKY...I've ran a few cheeses that were pretty skunky....some of Karma's gear comes off as very skunky....I actually got a plant out of Danky Danksters Area 51 gear....Glen sent me a bunch of stuff and we ran off a bunch of them about 5 of us at different locations...this one popped up and we ran it for a few years...it almost made all the criteria...but when I got ahold of the Appalachian Skunk that is grown and sold out here in the Shenandoah Valley...I remembered what my 1980s were like...and the search continues!

Good thread... I hope to read some interesting things.

Skunk weed from skunk bud bag seed, circa 1988.
That is all.
Let me ask a couple of questions so I can feel like I'm on the same page as the rest of y'all. (spank me and call me a NOOB if ya want to. :ROFLMAO:)
When discussing 'skunkiness', are we talking about the smell the live plant? OR the dried bud? OR the smell of the smoke? OR a combination of all three?
Next, I get that the 'skunk bud bag seed' is the ultimate goal in the never-ending search, but what is the closest you've come in something that is currently available?
Lastly, did the plants that you did the Skunk #1 seed run on check any boxes for you in the skunky category?
Thanks Skunky

@Hawkman Sorry Man, not trying to de-rail your thread.

The skunk #1 from 2002 was skunky in all stages veg, in flower and as dry bud/smoke. Potency was weak though and bud also had a cat piss smell to it.

Lol, I'll give this a try.
The skunk stunk growing, badly, but the bag appeal and skunkiness was really out of this world. I used to roll up bombers and just dry hit them for 30 minutes, suck on the huge calyxs that were so big you could just pick them off.
Beautiful lime green and the terps and smells that just seemed to take ya to a place, without even lighting up.
And the buzz baked you, a smooth acrid flavor with zero citrus or sweet, complete sour and acrid sickness. Make your mouth water on exhale,
Next, no, ive never, ever grown any other bud that was close.
And last, the only thing the skunk #1 seed run showed was the bulk and vigor of that strain.
Honestly, I'm really beginning to believe this rabbit hole is too deep for an old man to chase much more.
Genetics can be bred out and lost, and this jewel may be a victim.
Everyones got it, nobody really does , on , and on and on we go.

Skunky is on point there. I think the only way to recapture would be to find some landrace Afghans and hope you get lucky finding the lotto ticket. I wouldn't be surprised if it was somehow a mix of Colombian Mexican and Afghan / Himalayan type landrace fused

Man I feel this. Everytime I see RKS in a cross, my first thought is, then where is it? If you have it where is it? Why hide it in a cross? S1 that shit. BX it. Get it out there.

If all these breeders that claim to have it actually had it, we would have it by now. So at least some of them don't actually have it. Probably most of them. Possibly all of them.

@Schwaggy P has talked about this before I think. About how RKS might be gone unless we just stumble on the right combination of landraces to make it again

either that or hope to hell some old fella has stored beans from years back and hasnt wanted to part with it. theres a fella on ig that is doing a run from his dad or uncles seeds he had for decades and claims it. but like skunky says, everyone claims it but it hasnt reappeared so the chances are looking miniscule.

Bsv skunk. One looking ok. The other looking like a freak. You ever seen something twisted mangled and deformed? Both germed together etc. I'll end up binning it but want to see how nature runs its course. Stunted twisted and deformed side by side

NO worries all info is great - I guess taste is the first and second the smell - but if need to rate - Taste is most imporrtant - straind like "5 Star" and Star Pupil (Afghain, Thia and Packastand (Red) thought thess woul;d be the answwer (strains from MMS) but were OK but not what wanted, Guess have to try some basic "skunk" strains --So many ?????????????????? Help

Genetics is the "freak" maker, Have Bruce Banner (feminized (Trump Seeds) that is one BUT growing

How true and like what was mentioned (WillieP) traits can be bread (mispelled) out of a strain making it weak and takinig on the most dominate strain/genes' from one of the two plants crossed. Wish In House Genetics or Ethos has a good skunk strain (tried both Memberry and Skunk Hero) not too ipressed =- which I was surprised !!!!

I could not have described that any better. (y)Between '84 and '89 was prime..........thought it would last forever, lol.
