Island Sweet Skunk
Island Sweet Skunk is one of the most popular and beloved strains from British Columbia. Bred by Federation Seeds, this sativa-dominant hybrid is the result of crossing Skunk #1 with Sweet Pink Grapefruit. Its name comes from its sweet, citrusy aromas and flavours, which are countered by a deep pungency that is familiar to Skunk fans. It carries a punch with THC levels ranging from 16-25%, so those looking for an extra boost of energy and a happy, upbeat high should definitely give this one a try!

It is recommended for morning use, but can be consumed any time of day for a blissful and relaxing experience.
