Sunburn strain is a Sativa-dominant hybrid by breeders from Colorado Seed Inc. who crossed Island Sweet Skunk, Rug Burn OG, and Gupta Kush together. Some people believe that Island Sweet Skunk strain got to breeders from Vietnam along with veterans. Later, Colorado Seed Inc. added Gupta Kush and created the Sunburn strain, which attracts most smokers by its rich history, effects and aroma.

While the high is not was I was looking for, this bud is amazing. It has a great taste of lemon and butter in the exhale and good sativa buzz. The high is lightly energetic but not too intense. This is a great choice if you just want to smoke down.

Great tasting weed! The high is too mellow for a sativa. I find it very energizing and the high is euphoric and not to overwhelming. This is a good choice for first time users or novices. I highly recommend.
