Probably named after the kaleidoscopic candy, Skittles, this strain promises a rainbow of fruity and sweet delights worthy of the moniker. Not just tasty but beautiful too, Zkittlez grows in a chunky cola of pale green hues and combines the genetics of Grape Ape and tangy Grapefruit - where it finds its Indica strength - with a mysterious third parent that gives it that Sativa oomph. It’s this combination that has helped to create the huge fanbase associated with the strain, widely considered one of the best strains to emerge in recent years.
A toke of Zkittlez sets you on a multifaceted journey of euphoria, mixing the mental and physical effects of its parent strains - a true cerebral high quickly followed by smooth, soothing calm from head to toe. Enough to earn itself several lofty titles, in fact, including Best Indica in 2015 at the High Times Cannabis Cup, and 1st Place at the 2016 Emerald Cup.
With an average of 18% - and some measurements of up to 23% - Zkittlez has a fairly high THC content, and is reported to be beneficial for easing issues both mental and physical, particularly low mood or mild PMS symptoms, so it’s understandable how the strain is popular for its medicinal uses too.
