Rock Island is an indica hybrid strain, created through a cross of the legendary Island Kush x Rockstar Kush. Named for its gorgeous appearance and celebrity parentage, Rock Island is the perfect bud for lovers of quality indica who need a high level of potency behind their medicine. The name of the strain gets inverted sometimes, so you might know it as ‘Island Rock’. It’s all the same!
The Rock Island high is soothing, like the taste, with relaxing effects that act like a warm, soothing blanket for your mind. You’ll feel more calm than you can possibly imagine after just a few small hits, with an enduring sense of relaxation in your mind and body. Those effects are then accompanied by just the slightest touch of couch-lock, and a wave of sleepiness that might just leave you dozing off before you get anything done.
Rock Island flower has dense, mint green buds with pink undertones, a huge amount of orange hairs and a layer of pink-tinted trichrome crystals. As you pull the buds apart, you’ll be able to detect aromas of sweet woods and spicy flowers, wrapped inside a spicy diesel overtone that grows more pungent as the bud gets burned away. The flavour is mild, with a spicy taste and accents of fresh wood and earth to follow.
With such powerful effects, Rock Island is a popular choice for the treatment of insomnia, chronic stress, PTSD, chronic pain, and chronic anxiety.
