Island Sweet Skunk Weed Strain

Island Sweet Skunk

Federation Seed Co.

Origins: Skunk #1
Flowering: 50-55 days
Harvest: late September

Island Sweet Skunk came to Federation by way of expat Vietnam veterans who settled on Vancouver Island in Western Canada. The parent is a 1970s California Skunk #1 strain which was referred to as “Sweet Skunk”. Stabilized outdoors, Island Sweet Skunk remains Federation’s most prolific variety with outdoor yields averaging a pound per plant.

Island Sweet Skunk takes 8 weeks to finish in its Canadian home, but this variety can be ready to harvest in 7 weeks when grown at a higher altitude. The fluffy buds allow for good air flow, which reduces the chance of mold. Rain is easily dispersed and a little breeze leaves the colas dry and healthy. As it matures, these buds become covered with elongated orange-yellow hairs.

A real jumper in growth, Island Sweet Skunk will double in size when put into flowering indoors. A pole-straight growth pattern and minimal lateral branching make it possible to place plants close together in a sea of green setup. The large main colas at the end of each plant give a great yield, even in small spaces, but should be staked. After vegetating for 2 months outdoors, this plant has reached heights of 12 feet, with a 3 pound yield that practically broke the branches off.

    Harvest: late September??? Not so sure about this.
    This goes to October end as indicated by Next Gen website
    My own experience is that trichomes start to turn amber late in October.
