Island Super Skunk is a sativa dominant hybrid (80% sativa/20% indica) strain created through crossing the infamous Lemon Skunk X Island Sweet Skunk strains. With parents like these, you have to know that Island Super Skunk packs an addictive flavor! Island Super Skunk is said to have a sweet skunky flavor accented by delicious tropical fruits and a tangy citrus aftertaste. The aroma is much like a piece of freshly cut grapefruit accented by a pungent skunky effect that’s released as the nugs are broken apart and burned. Island Super Skunk has a high that’s just as sweet as the flavor, with happy daytime effects that are perfect for the late afternoon when you need a boost of energy but don’t really have anything that needs to be done. The high starts with an uplifted effect that boosts your mood and leaves you feeling insanely happy with a sense of creative inspiration. As your artistic notions build and build, your mind will fall into a hazy stoney state that’s pain relieving and aids in the creative process. With these effects and its super powerful 20% THC level, Island Super Skunk is said to be perfect for treating inflammation, muscle spasms, chronic stress or anxiety, and depression. This bud has lumpy grape-shaped forest green nugs with furry amber hairs and a coating of tiny crystal amber trichomes.
Specifically, shatter that’s higher in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will tend to be sappier than a product with a higher level of tetrahydrocannabinol acid (THCA), which will be much more brittle by comparison. At room temperature, THC is a sappy oil, giving shatter with a high THC content a more viscous consistency, whereas THCA is solid at room temperature, yielding a fragile concentrate that’s easier to break apart.
