The Schuyler Skunk Cannabis Strain

Posted on 3 Comments

A guest post from Lindsey….thanks Lindsey

Virginia hasn’t been a terrible place for me to spend my life in, so far. What makes Virginia such a beautiful state, in my opinion, are the admirable natural and agricultural aspects.

Sativa Cannabis Strain

The scenery is amazing, and the plants that surround my hometown in Central Virginia greatly contribute to the loveliness of the area- especially the cannabis plants with a plethora of different weed strains.

Schuyler (pronounced sky-lurr) is a Virginian town located in Nelson County, which isn’t far from me at all; maybe twenty minutes or so down the highway and farther into the woods. Most people probably don’t know about this town, yet many know about the popular cannabis strain native to this town- Schuyler Skunk. This strain, which has been around for decades, is some seriously killer weed.

Schuyler Skunk became popular sometime in the 80s or 90s, especially to the locals.

Possessing a highly pleasant buzz and an incredibly, uniquely strong aroma, Schuyler Skunk is a sativa strain, with a pretty moderate THC concentration.

Actually, many that have tried it would consider it to be a highly potent cannabis strain.

It became widespread due to its unforgettable, undeniably enjoyable head high, and still remains a super sought-after cannabis strain throughout the country.

Although there are some ideas out there on its origination, for the most part, the beginning of this strain’s existence remains a mystery. The collective theory is that it was derived from a home-bred, experimental local cannabis grow.

Sadly, this strain isn’t nearly as common as it used to be. The popularity and availability of Schuyler Skunk dwindled down in the late 90s, but if you’re lucky enough, and happen to know the right people, then there’s always still a chance to relive the sweet memory of experiencing the distinctive feeling that this strain offers.­

The first time that I ever saw this strain being grown, every single weed plant’s stalks grew to a size to where they could only be cut down with an electric pruning saw- this occurred when very, VERY little effort was put into the growth of these plants.

I could only imagine the size that these cannabis plants would’ve reached if the proper love and care had been put forth into their growth. I also recall the duration of its vegetative stage being significantly lengthy.

My old friend would start this strain earlier than most other cannabis strains, yet the Schuyler Skunk marijuana plants would always end up the last ones harvested.

Countless people all over the United States have stated that they want this cannabis strain to make a comeback. Perhaps it will, considering the weed legalization in Virginia that recently took place.

I will hope for the best, and in the meantime, reminisce on the pungent, characteristic strain, Schuyler Skunk, and be reminded by myself of back when 420 was just about every day while smoking this sweet herb.

  2. I have a friend tht has mother plants of this strain it is unbelievable and ever had anyike it.it is better than white widow in my opinion and I’ve been to Amsterdam

  3. I smoked weed in Charlottesville from the mid 80’s onward; I picked some of this up maybe 30-40 times in my life before it stopped coming around. I had seeds, too! I remember it being this is you were lucky, or sommercial weed that had been bailed and tied with twine, you got like reconstituted weed that looked all gross. Or, hey, so and so has the schuyler. Scramble to get cash together, because that was a little more. But jeez, talk about fresh, and so very sticky, and the glorious smell … I really think that Earl Hamner started this in his garden and it got out into the wild. Good stuff though, what a really great head high.
