Sweet Island Skunk From HiFi Farms Marijuana Strain Review

sweet island skunk hifi farmsI really love marijuana flower. It seems like these days not as many people consumer flower. More and more people are consuming concentrates in various forms, and/or edibles, topicals, tinctures, etc. I like all of those things too, but I still like consuming flower as well, and I think I always will. There’s just something about breaking open a frosty, stinky bud and putting it in a bowl and smoking it that I find very appealing.

I think a reason why people don’t consume flower as often is because it’s fairly hard to find really, really good flower these days. Back in the day when there were a limited number of growers, the overall percentage of flower that was super dank was higher. Now, with everyone and their grandma growing marijuana, the market has been flooded with mediocre flower, watering down the overall percentage of really dank flower out there. But there are times when I come across the type of flower that you want to write home about, and when that happens, I cherish every hit of it.

That happened to me recently when I attended the ‘Best of Potland’ marijuana legalization celebration event in Portland on July 1st. The event was put on by Willamette Week, and The Weed Blog was one of the sponsors. We were lucky enough to partner up with HiFi Farms, which supplied our booth with free samples of their Sweet Island Skunk flower to give out to event participants. I was blown away by just how good the samples were.

The Sweet Island Skunk strain (sometimes called Island Sweet Skunk) is a sativa strain, and produces a very energetic high, which was perfect for the celebration event. I really think that HiFi Farms knocked it out of the park by picking that strain for the event. Sweet Island Skunk is a descendant of the Skunk #1 strain, which originated in Canada. Probably the most distinct feature about the strain is the smell, which the name ‘Sweet Island Skunk’ alludes to. Sweet Island Skunk smells so fruity that it almost makes you want to eat the flower. The inhale was very smooth, and the exhale left a wonderful taste in your mouth.

I brought one of the samples home to consume and review, and I almost lost it to my sister-in-law that is visiting. I walked in the door, and almost instantly she said ‘what is that wonderful smell?’ I showed her the sample, and it practically took the jaws of life to get it out of her hands. I’m happy to say that I got the sample back, took it directly to my nearest smoking device, and proceeded to consume it. The high from the event had long worn off, but it didn’t take too many hits to get back to where I wanted to be. The particular sample that I got tested at 22% THC. The Sweet Island Skunk is great for motivation, creativity, an anxiety, among other things.

If you are lucky enough to to have some Sweet Island Skunk from HiFi Farms in your area, I strongly urge you to pick up some, you will not be disappointed. I hope to get my hands on some of the company’s other strains, all of which I’m sure are fantastic! HiFi Farms is a sustaining sponsor of the Portland chapter of Women Grow, and is lead by Sara Batterby, which is someone who is extremely talented, and that I admire a lot. You can find out more about HiFi Farms on their website, and you can also find them on Twitter and Instagram.

    Johnny, Johnny, Johnny. With just a little coaching you could master the elements of English prose that seem to have escaped you since college. (I’m writing now but have wanted to coach you about this for a long time.) When you write about the sample you took home, you say “…and I almost lost it to my sister-in-law that is visiting.” Your sister-in-law is not a “that,” she is a “who.” She’s actually a “who” preceded by a comma in this case, but just changing “that” to “who” when you write about people would be a help. Again: “HiFi Farms is a sustaining sponsor of the Portland chapter of Women Grow, and is lead by Sara Batterby, which is someone who is extremely talented.” Sara is not a “which,” just as your sister-in-law is not a “that.” They are both “who,” in these sentences and pretty much everywhere else. People are “who,” anything else is “that” or “which,” depending on the sentence structure. We’ll ignore for now that you spelled “led” as “lead” … we’re just trying to get the gender references straight for now.

    • George Snowdon

      Jonathan, you did well on “who” and “led”. But you yourself are a bit weak on the use of quotation marks. You wrote:
      Sara is not a “which,” just as your sister-in-law is not a “that.” They
      are both “who,” in these sentences and pretty much everywhere else.
      But you were talking about the word “who” and not about “who,” That comma is not part of the word, and so should not be included in the inverted commas. The same goes for “that.” instead of “that”. and “which,” instead of “which”,
      So you should have written:
      Sara is not a “which”, just as your sister-in-law is not a “that”. They
      are both “who”, in these sentences and pretty much everywhere else.

        To the Grammar Police,
        Do you not have anything better to do than correct the grammar in the above post?
        Maybe you should smoke a bowl and chill! Hahaha

        • newageblues

          Grammar police are one thing, playing grammar police to the grammar police is another.

            Projection

            Its a term in psychology people aren’t usually familiar with.

          • newageblues

            Yeah, I’ve heard the concept.

            The only people I’m interested in playing grammar police to is the grammar police. What does that have to do with projection?

      • Jonathan King

        Hey, George. I think it comes down to the differences between U.K. and American typographic styles. Americans always place commas and periods within the quote marks (or “inverted commas,” if you prefer), whereas I’ve noted that the Brits don’t. Hard to say that one is correct and the other not, really … it’s a style question in which consistency is the goal.

    • Terrible Towlie

      “who,” gives a fuck

      • Bongstar420

        Well you must despite the facade of not.

      • Wibbily Wobbily

    • DEV O

      GET a freakin” life… I think ur just jealous of Johnny for having the job YOU want!!!!!!

      • Jonathan King

        Oh, I certainly am jealous, but not “just” jealous. I’m dismayed by the illiteracy shown by so many of today’s marijuana bloggers and enthusiasts …. and as a veteran activist, I’m here to tell you that appearing to care about such things, whether or not you actually do, goes a long way toward convincing educated people that you’ve got something to say other than “Blaze one up, dude.” And if you think that this battle is over, and you don’t need to get the majority of the American people (including those with decent educations) aboard anymore, you are as wrong as can be.

        • Bongstar420

          It doesn’t suit their interests to be subordinated to their superiors. DUH

          But pedantics is really not the important gripe here. Its who has ownership of the means of production?
          The actual best at doing the job, or something else?

      • Bongstar420

        LOL

    • newageblues

      This isn’t Johnny Green’s only work. He must be a pretty busy guy. I assume it’s more a matter of rushed proofreading than anything else. For my 2 cents, I’d rather he spend the time on another interesting post than on immaculate grammar.

  • AZMEDICALBUD

    Grammer is ignored these days. What with texting short cuts, I get it. Its a forum, not a college exam.

    • Dev O

      This topic is NOT about grammar dumb-ass….don’t you have something better to do? Go do it and stop worrying about Johnny]s grammar for god sake

      • Dev O

        Sorry AZMEDICALBUD, this reply is not directed at you. It’s for Johnathan King below………

  • Bongstar420

    “I think a reason why people don’t consume flower as often is because
    it’s fairly hard to find really, really good flower these days.”

    Focus on price, get less elite producers. Concentrates require almost no skills and can be done on the same scale as mint oil.
    1oz mint oil = $4.49 + S& H (28g of oil)

    1lb mint 1-2.5% EO content = $12.25 +S&H (this would contain 11g oil at the high end of 2.5%)

    Marlboro is going to love buying the concentrate market in 10 years ;)
