Appearance & Aroma
Super Skunk is light green in colour with bits of pale oranges and browns, finished with a nice and light layer of trichomes. While Super Skunk isn’t black and white like its namesake forest animal, there is no denying that it is just as pungent. Many users report the strong aroma is similar to that of ammonia, cheese or fungus apart from the obvious skunk smell, but there are also notes of earthiness and spices. Upon smoking, however, you can actually taste a bit of a fruity tartness and sweetness as well, similar to that of pomegranate and cranberries, though others have reported more of a citrus note. For such a pungent strain, it also surprisingly offers a smooth and clean exhale!
