ISS Live Sauce: The Clothes I Wear...
Case: Island Sweet Skunk Live Sauce (extract)
File Date: 6/21/2018
Case No: 0207
Method of Extraction: Butane
Form: Live Sauce.
This sauce is referred to as “live” because the sourced plant material used was fresh, frozen cannabis. See below for more info..
What is “Live Resin”?
‘Live Resin’ is a specific type of cannabis extract whereby fresh cannabis flowers (i.e., buds not yet dried and cured) are harvested at their apex of maturity, cryogenically flash frozen under very cold temperatures and then used as the extraction material in the manufacturing process of that extract. The process of manufacturing Live Resin is an effort to retain as much of the fresh terpenoids (and cannabinoids) from the cannabis and capture them in the final product to provide a more complete and intense terpene and cannabinoid experience.
Type: Sativa-dominant Hybrid (80%/20%)
Genotype: Island Sweet Skunk = Skunk #1 X Sweet Skunk
ISS hails from Vancouver Island, B.C.. Federation Seeds is the original breeder.
This Sweet Skunk male for ISS is from a 1970s California Skunk called Sweet Skunk, which is not to be confused with a Spice of Life Seeds’ strain also called Sweet Skunk.

Characteristics: Neon tangerine, crystalline perfection. Stacks of diamonds.
Terpene Profile: I did not request the lab report for this sample, so I won’t be including the specific terpene levels for this product in this review.
In its intact state, this live resin emitted a tropical skunkiness and floral sweetness. When dabbed, this sauce tasted of sweet melon with skunk and floral notes. A flavorful ISS sauce. (ACT Labs)
TIPS: Low temperature dabbing is mandatory to achieve the most flavorful and potent experience. To learn about terpenes, see the Terpenes Library.
Effects: I really enjoy the effects that Island Sweet Skunk offers. It starts with a cerebral wave of energy that’s potent but pleasant. As you ride that wave, a mild, calming body element joins in. It's a nice, balanced high that isn't too heady. I like to use this strain as a functional daytime medicine.
Duration of Effects: 2-3+ hours, depending on dosage
May Help With: Helped with mood and creative focus. May also help with minor body pain, some types of arthritis, nausea, appetite, depression, anxiety, migraines, fatigue, some forms of minor nerve pain (and more).
Pure, tasty and generous ratio of diamonds to sauce.
