Sweet Island Skunk
Similar to many top-shelf sativa strains, Sweet Island Skunk delivers a strong yet functional cerebral high accompanied by a less intense body high. The nugs are light green and on the fluffy side with an average covering of trichomes and elongated light orange/yellow hairs. Sweet Island Skunk emits a strong, street skunk marijuana odor.
The parent is a 1970′s California Skunk #1 strain that was referred to as “Sweet Skunk” and came to North America by way of expat Vietnam veterans who settled on Vancouver Island in Western Canada.
It has a very well rounded high and a favorite of those who enjoy a daytime smoke. It’s a bit floaty and right on the edge of a soaring high. It is also a fairly clear-headed high, which is what makes it so ideal for the daytime.
Clinical testing for THC content has been reported at 19.6%, but recent tests have put the THC levels at 21.6%.
