Newbie Skilled

A cross of Grapefruit and Grape Ape, the Zkittles strain offers the best of both worlds. With its 12.21-15.55% THC levels and 0.44-1.17% of CBD, this Indica strain is powerful enough to give you a euphoric boost, while also being calming enough to let you just kick back and not think about a thing. 

Taste and Scent of Zkittles

A weed with a name like this can’t be anything but sweet. As soon as you take a toke, your taste buds will explode with a rainbow of fruity, sweet flavors with distinct tones of grapefruit. Don’t be surprised if you feel citrusy sourness and diesel hints, too—they come from limonene and sabinene terpenes, making the bouquet taste even more complete.

Zkittles Effects and Medical Uses

The Zkittles effects are moderate and quite mellow in nature. Once you consume the weed, you’ll likely experience an uplifting head buzz that will slowly spread through your body, giving you a euphoric boost. At the same time, you won’t feel overwhelmed. The weed doesn’t tend to limit your movement, nor does it lead to anxiety or paranoia, making it well-suited for daytime use. Considering the effects of the strain, many people use it for medical purposes, too. To specify, it’s proved to be particularly effective at treating health conditions such as:

  • Insomnia
  • Chronic pain
  • Anxiety
  • Inflammation
  • Mild cases of depression

The side effects of Zkittles are not too extensive, but they may still occur if you smoke marijuana in high doses. The most typical of them are:

  • Dizziness
  • Headache
  • Dry eyes
  • Dehydration
  • Heightened sensory perception.

Information for Growers

Although growing the Zkittles strain isn’t difficult, finding the seeds can be a challenge as they are quite hard to come by. However, if you’ve been lucky, the plant can be easily grown in any gardener's hands. It takes about 49-63 days to form buds, and around 70 days when they are ready to harvest. The plant grows well both indoors and outdoors, but if you’re interested in getting richer yields, outdoor growing is preferable.
