We bought an 8th of this stuff for $50 from some guy eating Cap'n Crunch cereal. Skunk #1 is an infamous and popular strain and has been around LA, and the world, for decades. In case it isn't obvious already, it got its name for smelling like those black and white members of the rodent family, Skunks.

Pre-Smoke Examination:
The buds are uniformly egg shaped, and very dense. The buds are extremely aromatic, and the smell is just like a real skunk, and I could smell it a block away from the guys house i bought it from. It's that sort of sweet and sour waft that will make your nose hairs sweat. The nugs are fresh, and appear to be professionally manicured and dried.

Post-Smoke Examination:
Skunk #1 is very malleable, and can be ground or broken up by hand very easily. When the bowl is being burned it lights up quick and fills the chamber with milky creamy fat-ass hits that make you have to wrinkle your forehead just to exhale. The taste is strong, sweet, and finger-lickingly-funky.

The high hits you nice and fast and can be compared to wearing a beanie thats too small for your head. Skunk #1 has been such a popular strain over the years because it is so consistent and reliable. It's the weed that will make you have a new found appreciation for that skunk that haunts your neighborhood, and at $50 an 8th you should definitely pick up a sack.

Find Skunk #1 in your local clinic or pot-guy's living room.
