For this cannabis review, I tried out some BC Sweet Skunk produced by Rose Science Vie under the Pure Laine Cannabis brand. The thing about Skunk strains is that many of us consumers from the 90s have this familiarity with them, until of course it looks/smells nothing like the good old Skunk weed we all used to smoke, then it becomes an issue. This Sativa-dominant hybrid cultivar came with 20.7% THC and an insignificant amount of CBD. Below is an in-depth BC Sweet Skunk review.

The Boveda humidity pouch in the Pure Laine Cannabis bag saved the day when it comes to bag appeal, there are just too many negatives to deal with right away. Sure, the moisture content was great at 61%, the thing is I don’t care whether the stems are dry or not. Way too stems and leaves for my linking, the trimming job was very bad on this. Size-wise, the bag had four medium sized nugs, everything else was too small, not enough “eye-candy” for me. The buds were of a dark green shade with a minimal amount of purple on them, trichome glands weren’t very intact.
I wanted skunky, kushy, gassy, what I got was….herbal? I really didn’t get much in the aroma, there were slight kushy notes that became more apparent after the weed was milled but far from what it should be. The terps seem to be quiet on this BC Sweet Skunk.
The terpene profile didn’t emit anything out of the ordinary through combustion, in simpler words, I didn’t get much flavor. The skunkiness was missing once more, I got some slightly herbal notes on the inhale, with some kushy notes dangling on the palate on the exhale that were barely noticeable. The smoke wasn’t the smoothest that I’ve tried.
When it comes to effects, the weed did it’s job. Initially, I felt my body decompress and my brain start to feel fuzzy about ten minutes in. Within 30 minutes, it went from a cerebral feeling to a visceral vibe that got my entire body feeling relaxed, but not necessarily lazy. I got Sativa and Indica vibes simultaneously from this strain, after about 45 minutes the lethargie started, I went into “sleepy” territory, no matter what time of the day I smoked some of this.
This whole experience was below average for me, this wasn’t the best first impression that I got from the Pure Laine Cannabis brand. I haven’t seen much of the Skunk genetics around the legal market so I was excited to try this, especially with such a low price-point. I wouldn’t really recommend this to anyone, but personally, I will give this company another try. Let me know what you thought of this BC Sweet Skunk below if you’ve tried it before.
