Terpenes and Aromas

The strain’s name suggests the skunk smell is a hallmark of this strain. It is true since the prevalent terpene found in this marijuana is limonene. Other dominant terpenes of the plant are nerolidol and carene. Due to nerolidol, the plant releases an earthy aroma with orange hints. Carene produces an odor that recalls spicy herbs and adds astringent notes to the flavor profile.

They feel euphoric but calm and relaxed, with their minds filled with positive thoughts. Still, the uplifting and happy high allows consumers to maintain a clear head and remain focused and concentrated.

How to Grow the Skunk Hero Strain

The strain was created for indoor and outdoor cultivation. Growing the crops in indoor settings results in 60’’-80’’ plants that deliver 1-2 ounces of dried buds per 1 ft2 planted area. When bred outdoors, the plants reach the same height and give 15-20 oz./plant. The harvest time falls around 66 days after a flowering period that lasts 51-59 days.

The buds produced by this plant are super dense. They are dark olive with a spicy skunk smell, so the strain can easily be detected a mile away. Gardeners should keep it in mind. If you prefer to keep your gardening secret, invest in smell-proof systems that help mask the odors (fans/filters).

Overall, it is a robust plant with high yields, popular with cultivators. The seeds are available for sale online.
