Island Sweet Skunk

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.

I somehow turned into a Marine Drill Sargent with my sister, who,was feeling some self doubt. But by the time I was done with her, she knew her worth. Great pain relief as well!


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.


One of many others,but IT is unique,i love the buzzzz,daytime sweetness, ànd i love to cook with this Strain,pure flowers Makes good cannabutter,,,,,its a 5star cannabis


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.


Its alright,smells hella danky. Good sativa high just doesn't last all that long. A good morning before work strain forsure.


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.


Aa parent of Golden Goat, this strain is well worth trying. A strong soaring high makes it a day time strain. But it works well at night too.


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.


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.


Just got some island sweet skunk from my licensed producer Tilray with 24.7% thc. Only 3 small bong hits (just a pinch each) and I'm doing fantastic.
