If you enjoy smoking hybrid strains, Island Chill is one more thing you should try. Besides, this is a good hybrid strain for beginners because the amounts of THC cannabinoids here go as low as 12-16%. This is means this weed isn’t a potent one, so even those who have never tried marijuana will hardly experience a bad trip. The other components of its chemical makeup are as follows:

  • CBC 0.11-0.21%
  • CBD 0.33-0.63%
  • CBG 0.39-0.55%
  • CBN 0.01-0.14%
  • THCV 0.19-0.21%

Terpene Profile and Flavors

Humulene, which takes 0.16%, is the dominant terpene here. Therefore, combined with other terpenes, it determines dominant flavors. Humulene is widely recognized for providing bitter aromas; that’s why many consumers often taste strong coffee and tobacco flavors. The other terpenes included are:

  • Carene - 0.12%
  • Pinene - 0.12%
  • Borneol - 0.06%
  • Myrcene - 0.14%
  • Limonene - 0.14%
  • Linalool - 0.2%
  • Terpineol - 0.04%
  • Caryophyllene - 0.01%

Due to the presence of myrcene and limonene terpenes, smokers also report feeling strong hints of lemon and orange. Sweet hints of flowers, apricot, roses, and pineapple are much softer here, but they are also present. Despite this presence, this strain isn’t for fans of sweet strains because it evolves rather pungent flavors.

Medical Usage and Effects of Island Chill

Many marijuana strains are widely used around the world as sedatives. They help to relieve pains and cope with inflammations.

If you are a creative and artistic person, your day will be more productive with this.
