Island Sweet Skunk Marijuana Strain

Sativa Dominant Hybrid 80% Sativa / 20% Indica

THC: 16% - 25%

This heady skunk is a Canadian original, grown for decades on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. With top THC levels of 19%, it's a potent tool for treating low mood. Island Sweet Skunk smells and tastes exactly as its name implies: sweet and skunky. It also delivers aromatic hints of the tropics. This strain, which won a Canadian award at the High Times Cannabis Cup, is a sativa-dominant hybrid of original Skunk #1, a local California strain known as Sweet Skunk, and an unknown sativa. The sativa/indica ratio is 80:20. This strain is useful in relieving anxiety, depression, nausea, and pain. It can also help with nerve pain, migraines, arthritis, and GI disorders. Dry mouth is very common, but other adverse effects are limited. This strain is most popular in its home territory, British Columbia and Ontario, along with Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. It's much harder to find elsewhere. The cerebral high packs a major mood boost, with feelings of happiness and euphoria. It tends to promote energy and creativity, but there's also a mellow body effect that encourages relaxation.

Thrive Harrisburg, Cresco, Tincture form. Best all around daytime treatment for PTSD, Migraines/facial pain, fatigue from mitochondrial damage and fibromyalgia. I also use it on days when I need good ADD control that enhances my creativity in fiber arts. The pain relief is excellent for body and specific types of pain. I do have to add a 3 drops of a CBD containing strain to temper the potential anxiety, but that works so well, I can take ISS without the severe anxiety I experienced when I first started using it. Tincture is 60mils of EverClear or similar brand or Bacardi 151 and 3.5g of decarboxylated flower, freezer extraction method, 5-7 days in freezer shaking vigorously several times a day. Due to throat problems, smoking is not an option for me. I get a very high THC depending on the particular grow. My current 60mil bottle is about 8mg to 10 drops. Much more potent than the controlled 2.5mg in 10 drops of glycerin tincture that can be purchased. It is well worth making your own tinctues, stretches your marijuana budget so far it is cheap-skate friendly.


I recently purchased 10 grams for $60 from a casual dealer I sometimes get from as NOT any other options other than cannabis NB. I would never buy this stuff again I found it gives me no head buzz whatsoever and need to smoke one joint after another just to feel a slight buzz. I don't know if I did not get sweet island skunk like was told it was but it certainly looks like it from what Ive seen on different websites so have to assume that it is. In my opinion I would not waste my money on this crap ever again!!


I have a plethora of ailments.. Digestive disorders that cause symptoms such as pain muscle spasms. I also suffer from anxiety depression stress PTSD. This is my GO TO strain..ISS seems to help all those issues within about 4-5 vape hits. I would also like to say that of all the sites I have looked at for effects of strains, allbud seems to show the closest effects on MY body listed. I'm happy with this site.. But I always compare to other sites


Island Sweet Skunk is the real deal for mood upliftment. No paranoia, no anxiety, just pure beautiful sativa bred to perfection. Fruity and earthy like a papaya, it smells and tastes delicious. It is great for creativity, but quite strong after two tokes from a vape. I would definitely plan to listen to music and spend a morning doing something fun. Fabulous for neuropathy pain and arthritis.


Cresco labs version in Illinois, 30% thc total, but feels more like 20%. Okay for daytime, but prefer something more "stony" at nightime. Prefer more bang for my buck. Looks great, but smell and taste only "okay" compared to faves like Gelato, G6, or Bruce Banner 3, which all also offer the killer bang.


The high from Island Sweet Skunk was euphoric and gave me the energy to clean my apartment. I felt it gently becoming a dull warm glow. The THCa level is 31.78% (according to the lab's label) . I love the way I.S.S. effects me.. I got two pre-rolls for $0.16, amazing deal.


Huge, dense, frosted, deep forest green and rust pillars that know how to jump start a day. Grind up a marble and pull in the reins on this strong and energetic sativa. Sweet and fruity with a nice skunky kick. Really nice from High Spirits MA.


I generally prefer indicas at any time but this SIS is plugging in nicely. Great taste, can't put my finger on what I'm tasting but I like it. Good first buzz of the day cannabis. A solid buzz I'm tellin ya. 4.6 outta 5


He just named every emotion a person goes through in describing the Benifits of this strain, so there is no way he can be wrong. This alone shows me this site has 0 reliability in knowing what they are talking about.


I've smoked a lot of weed in my 60 years on the planet. This is my ultimate favortie strain. It gives me a great head high. I love the creativity and mental stimulation. It keeps me chill and happy.
