Island Girl Strain Smell and Taste

The biggest highlight of this strain is its scent. It offers a lovely mixture of flavors, giving off a remarkable tropical mango aroma, accented by touches of sweet citrus, on exhale. You will also feel vanilla and flowery scents characteristic of the pulegone terpene with undernotes of pepper, tobacco, and earthiness, which are common for caryophyllene. The taste of this marijuana is similar to its aroma. Most users describe it as super sweet and fruity with a refreshing menthol aftertaste.

In some people, it may also provoke giggles and make you more talkative than usual. All these effects make Island Girl a great pick for accurately managing conditions such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
