Island Sweet Skunk CBD flower
The island sweet skunk hemp strain, also known as the Sweet Island Skunk, is one of the most popular strains of all time. It came into existence three (3) decades ago in Holland, where it was produced from a crossing of many strains from Thailand and Afghanistan, then South and Central America.
The island sweet Skunk is a great strain that radiates sweet citrus scents that possess skunky notes. It also produces deep green buds that are round and come in burnt yellow pistils, followed by a covering of trichomes that help lighten its tone.
Its Sativa content level is 80%, and that of Indica is 20%. However, the THC content is less than 0.03% against a CBD content that ranges from 11% to 22%. However, it is worthy to note that the Island sweet skunk took the first position in the 2013 High Times competition of the Top 10 Canadian hemp strain of all time.
It was first grown by the federation seeds and should not be confused with that raised by the Spice of life.
