Norcal Crypt x Skunk#18
Crippler is a Shasta staple been here over the past 10 plus years and one of the first Kill varieties I came across when first moving to the area as OG Wheelchair Crippler. The specific cut originally comes from the man Norcal CryptKeeper who popped her from an old 70s/80s Hippy Stash of beans popped in the 90s. From his accounts he was told and believes she is a Version of Skunk#1 x Afghani and she smokes like it. She is a fully double serrated individual, grows like a big beautiful Tree, stump and all. Quite a quick pre Flowering trigger another Afghani dominant trait i find in many known Afghan one offs. High end Yield of Golden cured flowers, dripping wet in resins. A mix of Chemical, Citrus, Pine, and Musk.
**Unconfirmed i have found posts to her being referenced as an M39 derivative and that would also make sense. Basic 5 (Basic #5) x Skunk No. 1.
Hit to the two rank Skunk#18 studs I expect all flower times to be reigned in except in the fastest pairings, all long flowering sativas will be brought down by a week or two off finish, Tighter Flower formations, Enhanced yield, Quality undiminished and of course That rank ‘Skunkbud’ funk. The Skunk will take the front seat in most all pairings and especially in this pollination as i really selected hard for only true Skunkbud individuals. I say in most all pairings that they take over 2/3 pretty easy, but they do let the mom come through pretty damn clean when she shines, even beautiful recessed looks and sometimes all new unexpected flavors are the result. These plants are extremely compact, node spacing is tight so plants will benefit from thinning, training. early topping is recommended unless you would like to grow them monocola in a SOG style setup which is what they are ideal for. extremely powerful branching support Large Afghani style formations.
