Island Sweet Skunk is a name that is familiar to most Tilray patients, making regular appearances in our Shop since our launch day in 2014. Although its name may bring to mind far away tropical islands like Jamaica or Fiji, the “Island” in Island Sweet Skunk actually comes from the place it was first bred, Vancouver Island. The “Skunk” portion of the name reflects its lineage as a descendant of Skunk #1, a hybrid strain in existence since the 1970s. Island Sweet Skunk itself is classified as a sativa strain and is consistently among our most potent producers of THC.
In addition to its strong cannabinoid content, this strain is also rich in terpenes, with trans-nerolidol, pinene and humulene being expressed in highest concentrations.
