Island Sweet Skunk, also known as ISS or Sweet Island Skunk, has been cultivated on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada, for decades. 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 can encourage a good mood and can be used to treat depression, anxiety, and stress. Users often feel focused and creative. It may also help with migraines, fatigue, and nerve pain. 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.
