About Island Sweet Skunk

First bred by Federation Seeds, this hybrid should not be confused with Sweet Skunk from Spice of Life. This strain is heavily influenced by Skunk #1 as well as a 1970’s California Skunk called Sweet Skunk. 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, it is a strain that starts with a perky upbeat high, quickly followed by a soft body buzz.
