About Island Sweet Skunk

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.

First bred by Federation Seeds, this hybrid should not be confused with Sweet Skunk from Spice of Life. This strain is heavily influenced by Skunk #1 as well as a 1970's California Skunk called Sweet Skunk. A Vietnam veteran brought Sweet Skunk to Federation Seeds, where it was crossed with an unknown Sativa. 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.

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. During the eight to nine week flowering period, plants will need to be supported. Growers may harvest yields of over 200 grams. Outside, this strain usually finishes in mid-October.

One of thee best Sativas in my opinion. It tastes like no other strain I have come across. Pure island summer vibes with a tropical fruit taste to it. The smoke is medium body and smooth. The high is a clear minded happy Sativa high which makes me want to chat and book a trip to tropical getaway. Great strain for hanging with friends and exploring nature. If you like Sativas, I recommend the Sweet skunky island.

Powerful medicine. *Due to potency, not a beginner stain* The aroma is unique but pleasant. It's a combination of sweet-smelling fruit and skunk. The taste is a sweet, smooth fruit flavor that washes over your taste buds with a nice skunky finish on the exhale. You feel it right away in your head, giving you a light-headed intensity that could be interpreted as being dizzy, melting into a euphoric, uplifted head high. But that's not all this strain has to offer, as you start to get a tingling sensation in your limbs, as stress and tension just melt away. Giving you relief from tense muscles, stress, pain, and depression. Then, just as you thought you've experienced everything this strain has to offer, a whole new level of high sets in taking you to amazing heights. Allowing the effects to last for hours. In all, I could not recommend this strain enough! This is going to be a strain I seek out to purchase for the foreseeable future.

Your description is wrong. It was Next Generation Seed Company that got it in the top 10 strains in High Times.. not Nirvana
