Including Sensi Seeds, Nirvana Seeds, Mr Nice, Seedsman and many more. Also Seeds from Amsterdam, Spain and Africa were added to the list. After growing out all available Skunk Seeds they were left with 2 diamond plants. A Super Skunk from Sensi Seeds and an unknown Skunk from Amsterdam. These were then back-crossed to produce the ultimate Skunk plant.
