Wonder Skunk is an Indica Dominant Hybrid strain that is a cross between two interesting strains; Road Kill Skunk x William’s Wonder. Both parents give powerful cerebral highs that may take a new user by complete surprise.
Wonder Skunk, however, has very balanced effects.
The strain was created by the Spanish breeders Seedmakers. These breeders have created strains such as Super Diesel, Widow, Blizzard, Critical, Low Dwarf, and Akauto.
The smell of Wonder Skunk is what you might deduce from the name; skunky at first but later you will be able to pick some wonderful fruity flavors.
Like most indicas, the plants mature fast; you should be drying by 8-9 weeks. Outdoors, Wonder Skunk does well in warm climates and the plants should mature in late April.
This strain has moderate amounts of the psychoactive compound in weed- delta -9- tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). THC binds to CB2 receptors in the brain to cause euphoria which is enjoyed by seasoned users but dreaded by new patients. With 10-14% THC, the cerebral effects of this strain are moderated and well tolerated by most patients. This strain can be used at any time of the day.
The cerebral high produced by this strain sets in slowly and lasts for a long time. Following, the body will also give in to the pressure and the patient will begin to feel lazy and immobile. This strain causes a couch lock effect; a feeling of being glued to the couch. It works well for a lazy day when a patient can afford to set aside time to recover from extreme fatigue and insomnia.
Wonder Skunk is also a good social strain. It stimulates some level of excitement and chattiness.
It has significant therapeutic benefits and has been used to treat insomnia, lack of appetite, inflammation, and pain among others.
This is an indica dominant hybrid strain with 70% indica and 30% Sativa. It has 10%-14% THC and 0.1% CBD.
