About Island Sweet Skunk Strain
Island Sweet Skunk, also known as ISS or Sweet Island Skunk, has been cultivated on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, for decades. Nirvana’s version of this strain made the High Times Top 10 Canadian Strains of All Time list in 2013. Smelling and tasting like sweet citrus with a bit of skunk, Island Sweet Skunk is a strain that starts with a perky upbeat high, quickly followed by a soft body buzz.
This hybrid can have as much as 19% THC and may be effective daytime medication for minor aches, arthritis, nausea, and appetite loss. Users often feel focused and creative. It may also help with migraines, fatigue, and nerve pain.
Island Sweet Skunk is easier to grow than many other Sativa-heavy strains. It grows well in the Screen of Green setup. It can do well inside, but because of its height and the space it requires, the strain may do better outdoors or in a greenhouse. Growers may harvest yields of over 200 grams. Outside, this strain usually finishes in mid-October.
