Lemony and skunky, highly sought after but elusive, Albert Walker is a connoisseur’s strain with deep roots in the Pacific Northwest. No one can say for sure but the citrus and skunk profile seem to suggest Afghani and Skunk parentage. What is known is that Albert Walker was a favorite in the Grateful Dead scene in the 80s and 90s and achieved legendary status as it travelled around the country. The effects are strongly elevating and euphoric with appetite stimulation and pain relief qualities as well. Very much a daytime strain, if you can find it of course.

  • Indoor flowering time: 60-67 days- Seedfinder

Capable of growing outside, this strain is most often cultivated indoors with organic nutrients. It can take between seven to ten weeks to deliver a heavy yield, but because this strain lacks stability, nothing is guaranteed. Albert Walker is available as a clone only.

This particular Indica-leaning phenotype was grown and trained as a multi-stem plant with about 4 main colas per plant. As you can see - this strain exhibits short branching due to the close internodes. As an outdoor plant or greenhouse plant AW has the potential to become much larger. Trimming is just less than average due to the fat leaves and the calyx-to-leaf ratio. The quality of the yield is is just amazing. Big fat buds on every part of the plant. I can't wait to see how big this strain gets during the next round. Flowering period of 56 to 60 days, that's about 8 weeks. The yield was heavy.

Albert Walker is a finicky and demanding strain that is tough to grow, requiring heavy feedings to maintain healthy growth. It yields well and is very rewarding if properly treated though. Possibly due to the old age of the clone, it is very difficult to clone and grow, but makes great breeding stock. Flowering time: 60-67 days. Needs high nutrients. Best environment: indoor.(Growing information courtesy of MoonshineMan.)

No one has come forward to claim the Indica dominant Albert Walker as their own, which means no one knows its genetics for certain. Some surmise it descended from Afghan Skunk and sprung up somewhere in the Pacific Northwest. It gained popularity in the 1980s and 1990s by way of Grateful Dead concerts. Often similar to its proposed parent, tasting like lemons and skunk, it is a very aromatic plant with a nearly identical to Afghan Skunk scent.

Thought to be an Afghan cross, this strain can be traced to the Northwest. It gained popularity at Grateful Dead Concerts in the eighties and nineties.

Additional Information

The strong roadkill skunk-meets-lemon funk of Albert Walker will overwhelm the smell of many other plants in the grow room. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, but of unknown lineage, this Indica-dominant strain has a positive, relaxing, mood elevating effect that lasts longer than most. Coming on strong with a wave of heat to the head and chest, Albert Walker uplifts the mood and provides a good deal of mental energy at first. It changes it character after a short time though, turning into more of a euphoric and relaxing Indica effect. Good body relaxation, anti-anxiety, mood elevation, and appetite stimulation qualities.

Albert Walker produces a strong cerebral and physical high. It begins with a wave of heat that can make users sweat. The heat is accompanied by a surge of euphoric energy that can melt away fatigue, anxiety and stress. Lasting up to three hours or longer, this strain can be good for relieving chronic pain and focusing on the task at hand. Albert Walker shares a likeness with Afghan Skunk not only in taste but also in its small Indica structure.
