Summit Sweet Skunk Medical Marijuana Strain Review
From: Denver Kush Club
Type: Sativa hybrid, see its strain encyclopedia page for more info
Appearance: (7/10) Fairly loose structure with yellowish-green nugs and a few spots that have a purple undertone. A little leafy and jar appearance isn’t the best, but packed with glistening trichomes and beautifully long red hairs. Typical sativa spear shaped bud, but we found one small seed under the microscope.
Aroma: (6/10) First initial smell is a skunky aroma but grinding produced no further pungence. Has a little bit of piney-citrus in it as well but not a “sweet” smeller.
Taste: (5/10) A bit of popping when lit, and burned to a gray/white ash – not throughly flushed. Had a mild citrus taste with medium expansion.
Effects: The SSS doesn’t quite deliver the upward feeling experience you would suspect. There is an initial cerebral rush and euphoria focusing on the head and eyes. However, by 20 minutes you will feel a heavy and lazy head, eyes heavy and mind turning off. The body effect is noticeable but not strong enough to really wash out neck and back stress. The best comes first and is over fairly quickly.
Duration: Medium. 1.5 hours
Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY) Total body relaxer (mild) with no uneasy feelings that cause anxiety or stomach issues. Possible insomnia remedy.
Overall: The Summit Sweet Skunk is a strain we will review again for sure. A Colorado local and often favorite, the SSS is often sought for its easy sativa ride, but we found a rushing body medication that peeters out and leaves a patient heavy and exhausted while only providing mild pain and relaxation attributes. The SSS smells pretty good and has some good heritage (either lineage story above) so you may find yourself giving it a try. We will again I’m sure, but not too soon.
