Yep, true skunk smells nothing like ammonia or cat piss, back in the 80s early 90s the only thing I ever came across that smelled like ammonia/cat piss was crank and it would blow your fucking head clean off after you choked down a wet chunk of red death that would launch your ass into a 4 day stupor of absolute madness!I'm from western north Carolina in the 80' all we had was red bud , Columbian gold and dirt weed . Some local boys out their money together (and I knew them well) and sent a man to Afghanistan. And he came back with several thousand true afghan seeds and it smelled just like a pine tree and was so gummy ,it would stick to the walls. That was the first green weed I ever saw in my life and then the true skunk weed came and it sure enough smelled just like a skunk sprayed you . No seed banks today have the true breed afghan seeds and I've not saw the true skunk weed in 25 or 30 years . Would drive across this USA to get either one of these true GENETICS. Best memories of my youth!!
I do not miss those days whatsoever and am lucky to have all my teeth and still be alive.
True road kill that was in the PNW back then would almost make a novice puke and run for cover while I smoked it all:)
I would compare it more to rotting cabbage or sauerkraut,
