Marley Natural Marley Gold Island Sweet Skunk Review

Marley Natural's Marley Gold (Island Sweet Skunk) is a sativa strain with frosty bright green buds, orange hairs and sweet tropical fruity flavours.

When we heard Bob Marley’s trust started a cannabis brand we were intrigued and hopeful this wasn’t a gimmick to simply cash in on the name.

We’re looking at Marley Natural Marley Gold Island Sweet Skunk today which was originally cultivated in British Columbia, Marley Gold is described as producing a herbal aroma with notes of pine, which means is stays true to its Sweet Pink Grapefruit and Big Skunk #1 roots. So how does Marley Gold compare to similar products like Fleurish Sweet Island Skunk or even the recently reviewed Highly Dutch’s Amsterdam Satvia.

With a brand carrying the Marley name, we sincerely hope this bud represents. However with no moisture pack in the container, there was only a faint mild herbal smell with hint of pine.


True to its name, it has a very natural outdoor bushy appearance. The fluffy flaky leaflets on the outside find their way to the bottom of the container due to their dryness when the buds roll around in the container. A little shake never hurts.


Having a strong flavor is usually a good thing. Except if that flavor is strong black pepper. Harsh on the throat as one might image, it follows this initial overpowering flavor with a curious piney aftertaste.


Listed as having 23.1% THC content, we found Marley Natural’s Marley Gold strain delivered a strong yet still mellow high that lasted a couple of hours depending on your tolerance level. It was good, but for some reason we just expected more from this sativa.

Marley Gold has a mild aroma of pepper and pine. The mixed-green flaky buds are bit harsh when smoked with a peppery and piney flavour followed by a moderate sleepy high.

Since high school my friends and I have been recreational cannabis users so we decided to start Merry Jade after legalization in 2019. We review and photograph the different products then share them on this website. The rating system we use is called “SAFE” which stands for Smell, Appearance, Flavour and Experience. Each category gets a score out of 10.

Have your say!
