Island Sweet Skunk (I.S.S.) is an outstanding indoor/outdoor strain. I.S.S. produces sticky crystal buds, with excellent yield. She is Sativa dominant but is fast flowering. When smoked you feel an uplifting effect and the high is very strong. Of all the strains this one is by far one of the nicest high's around. This strain was bred by Jordan of the Islands up in Vancouver BC area.
Type: Sativa-dominant Hybrid (reportedly BC Sweet Pink Grapefruit x Big Skunk #1)
The I.S.S. buds have a light green color with pale orange pistils and some slight purpling when dried.
I.S.S.'s aroma is a truly delicious-smelling sample, it broadcasts an actual skunky smell that has a sharp sweet bite while in the jar. When broken up, it blows up into a wonderful combination of sweet citrus, soil, and pine that is truly pungent. A top-notch example of both facets of this strain’s signature aroma.
I.S.S.'s taste is a combination of velvety citrus with a sweet cream kick. The high is somewhat of a creeper. After a short delay, the effects come on strong — moments of staring off at nothing or deeply thinking about random subjects mingle into what amounts to a rather spacey experience to start. This strain was unique in that it kept up its potency for quite a long time, only dialing down slightly from its heady start as it went on. The I.S.S. Indica characteristics became more apparent in the body as the minutes ticked by, relaxing the limbs quite a bit and warding off any aches and pains caused by riding while maintaining a floaty brand of functionality. With occasional returns of the spaciness, this med provided a relaxing but functional ride that lingered for a really long time.
Ride Length: Long, 3+ hours
