HortiLab Seeds may or may not have been aiming to create this masterpiece, and whether it was the result of a happy accident or lots of painstaking elbow grease, we are certainly lucky that it exists. This gem is the result of a cross-pollination of a pre-98 Super Skunk clone and an East Coast Sour diesel, which gives Super Sour Skunk an incredible parentage to live up to and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. This is a potent little bud that lifts the spirit and eases the body of all of its daily woes.
With an average range of 10% to 15% THC, this isn’t a particularly strong strain, though the high will have you buzzing around in an ultra-happy state after just a couple of hits. These buds come out an eye-catching olive green and purple, punctuated by purple and orange hairs and a thick layer of sticky white trichomes. If the appearance of these little beauties didn’t draw you in the classic aromas and true to their parentage flavors certainly will. With the best of both parents coming out in its blend of flavors, users can indulge in the sour citrus and earthy flavors and skunky sweet and lemon aromas.
Many describe this high as a slightly sedative, yet surprisingly upbeat experience with a strong come down that lulls you into a heavy sleep. The first wave of energy is accompanied by clear-headed thoughts and blissful motivation, which over the course of the long-lasting high will change to a slightly more weighted body calm. This soothing feeling overtakes you and makes it nearly impossible to get anything done. While your brain is telling you all these amazing new ideas, your body is telling you it’s time for bed.
For medicinal users, this strain is a great way to get through bouts of depression or stress as it is a fully uplifting and soothing bud. Enjoy as your heavy thoughts fall away and your ability to be positive takes their place. Super Sour Skunk will give you the boost you need in a few different ways. If the mood boost isn’t enough, the sedative may be. Because it is both a stimulant and a sedative this strain is great for pain relief, insomnia, mental health issues, and in some cases lack of appetite. Newer users should be aware that using this bud in excess can cause anxiety and should proceed with caution.
Super Sour Skunk plants are said to be a moderate-to-advanced endeavor. If you are a well-versed green thumb, however, this shouldn’t give you too much trouble.
