Albert Walker

Written by KindReviews on February 10th, 2011. Posted in Blog, Indica-Dominant Hybrid, Strains


General Information

Type:  Indica-dominant hybrid

Genetics:  Thought to be an old Afghani Skunk

Geographic Origin:  Afghanistan, then to the Pacific Northwest

Seed Company/Clone: Rare, clone only

Description: 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.


Story: Albert Walker was made popular at Grateful Dead concerts throughout the 1980′s and 1990′s, but was thought to have originated in the Pacific Northwest earlier than that.  The structure and scent suggests that it’s an Afghani Skunk, but nobody knows for sure.


Growing Information

Flowering Time: 60 – 67 days

Preferred Growing Medium: 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.

Patient Expectations

Scent: Pungent lemony-garlic skunk

Flavor: Strong and thick-tasting lemony skunk

Effects: 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 was given to me by my grandfather back on my 18th birthday. My grandfather followed the Grateful Dead for many many years. I’ve had this strain for over 15years. Still going strong very good taste, smell, feel. 60-67 day strain. I’ve live in Emerald city for my whole life. Strain may have came front grandfather too me. Very large producer, personally its the easiest for me to grow.

    Some call orange kush Albert Walker they are wrong, Albert is a stand alone plant. Not Much can match the strain.

    Matthew, you should search for Fat Albert here on the site. We came across an amazing grower who crossed a terrific Deep Chunk with his very old Albert Walker. I love the Albert pure, but the Fat Albert is also wonderful medicine.

    Reasons for keeping it close is too keep it REAL, and Keep it PURE, not greed. Once everyone has mess up there crosses Albert will always be pure here. I have seed out my ass so It will last forever strong meds. My moms are special to me.. Everyone can say what they want don’t matter. It is by far the best strain I know of.. Crossed or not. I would like to Meet Jason KING I will tell you more about it. Karmic420 thanks for keeping it REAL and PURE. Honesty is KEY. I looked at the Deep chunk and Albert crossed looks good. There is a Place In Tacoma/Parkland WA. Hashford Club they say they have Albert to bad they Lye, they even spell it wrong Alburt ??? WHAT the heck?? Don’t beleive fools unless they can prove it. They cut a plant stick it in dirt put tape on it and call it whatever your looking for.. BEWARE

    Matthew, if you’re such a pro at growing AW, why not share some information? From the tone of your comments, I fear you’re far from “keeping it real.” In fact, I doubt you know what you’re talking about.

    And this is the very first time I’ve ever heard a claim of someone having AW seeds. It came to me as a clone, just as it did to everyone else. Why would you need to make unsubstantiated claims on a web forum? It does you no good to brag or lie if people don’t even know who you are!
