Island Sweet Skunk Marijuana Strain
Island Sweet Skunk, sometimes called Sweet Island Skunk, is a sativa strain that consumers enjoy for its energetic effects. The flavor is most easily described as “sweet skunk,” where tropical fruit flavors take the lead. Often the fruity aroma is likened to grapefruit. Originally bred by Federation Seed Company in Canada, this strain is a descendant of Sweet Pink Grapefruit and Big Skunk #1 and grows tall, straight, high-yielding plants. Some varieties of Island Sweet Skunk have a heightened CBD content to help patients treating anxiety, inflammation, and muscle spasms. Flowering occurs at 7 to 8 weeks, and buds will have bright yellow-orange hairs.
THC levels average around the mid-teens to low 20’s and CBD levels are just a bit higher than your average strain. Despite this, it won in the 2013 High Times Top 10 Canadian Strains of All Time.
Island Sweet Skunk’s effects have been described by many as uplifting and energetic, sometimes causing the consumer to suddenly want to engage in activities such as creative hobbies, social events, or even going to places like amusement parks or the aquarium. Reviewers like this strain for its potential ability to enhance experiences while keeping the mind clear enough to engage with people without anxiety.
However, some have reported that higher servings of this strain might lead to a lethargic or sleepy state, so keep this in mind when fashioning your own serving.
