Island Sweet Skunk, sometimes called Sweet Island Skunk, is a sativa strain that users 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 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.
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. The strain 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.
