Island Sweet Skunk, sometimes called Sweet Island Skunk, is a sativa strain that consumers enjoy for its energetic effects. The flavor is most easily described as “sweet skunk,” where tropical fruit flavors take the lead. Often the fruity aroma is likened to grapefruit. Originally bred by Federation Seed Company in Canada, this strain is a descendant of Sweet Pink Grapefruit and Big Skunk #1 and grows tall, straight, high-yielding plants. Some varieties of Island Sweet Skunk have a heightened CBD content to help patients treating anxiety, inflammation, and muscle spasms. Flowering occurs at 7 to 8 weeks, and buds will have bright yellow-orange hairs.
Strawberry Kush is sweet, strong and truly well-rounded. This strain certainly justifies its lineage and contains a musky artificial strawberry taste with a THC content of up to 23 percent. It is essentially found as a cross between the bitter OG Kush and the sugary Strawberry Cough and is mostly strong but not overwhelming. Based on the dispensary, the ancestry of this strain tends to vary. Certain dispensaries contain more sativa-dominant or hybrid versions that lead to opposite, stimulating effects. This strain typically blossoms in eight to nine weeks and is obtainable by cloning only. In its make-up, Strawberry Kush contains Sativa genetics and it is smoked more as a Sativa than an Indica. Upon lighting this weed, one instantly identifies citrus, pine and of course, strawberry. A clean flavor is provided by the fruity combination and the buzz of this weed mentally stimulates a person, leaving them alert and ready for action. Strawberry Kush is a good smoke for daytime use since it will not make you drowsy. From a medical perspective, it helps patients with stress and appetite loss.
