Sometimes, cannabis simply does not earn its name. You wonder who in their right mind might have decided on such an unfitting moniker. There are plenty of occasions where the name feels more fitting, but it is a true rarity and sign of sublime perfection when a strain suits the name as well as with the incomparable Zkittlez strain.
Also spelled as Skittlez, this exceptional marijuana is one of America’s most flavourful and fragrant strains, and befitting its namesake as appropriately as the legendary Girl Scout Cookies.
A pungent, Indica-dominant strain, Zkittlez weed proves with its unbeatable fruity flavour that high THC shouldn’t be the only desireable trait on the cards for widening your weedy horizons. Don’t let this statement fool you, though, this supremely fruity ganja boasts strength enough to stand tall amongst the highest THC strains.

A relatively new strain on the block, comparitively, the Zkittlez strain carries a certain air of mystery about its origins, in true legend in the making fashion.
Many argue this fabulously fruity fiesta owes its existence to the 3rd Gen Family (the winners of over 30 awards) and Terp Hogz, though plenty still debate this marijuana marvel came to be at the hands of Dying Breed Seeds in California.
What we do know is this Indica-dominant hybrid strain owes lineage to fruity fave Grape Ape and the seductive Sativa Grapefruit. Reports claim another mystery strain has its genetics in the mix, though time is yet to tell on the deeper enigmas of the stupendous Zkittlez strain.
This exceptional bud truly is the definition of happiness, and though mildly potent when compared with the other high THC strains, the sumptuous smell and mouth-watering flavour have crowned it an instant global sensation.

The pungent, sweet-sour musk lures you in with promises of sweet, tropical blends, the likes of which send your mind soaring to a serene stretch of golden sand baking beneath the sun, the sea licking your toes.
As you reach for that first bud, awed by the beauty of blended green hues and copious, rust-coloured pistiles under that perfect layering of snowy trichomes, the scent starts to sit, casting its spell on the salivary glands.
If you’re lucky and the bud is grown well, flecks of purple beckon you closer like masters of marijuana temptation.
Its common to be drooling when you break open your first, dense little Zkittlez bud, and bask in the full fruity welcome of mixed, sweet grapes and berries. We’d suggest preparing with a bag of Skittles nearby; for comparison, and science.
Breaking those oh so willing buds up, your thoughts will be arrested by that complex berry scent, the kind you want to live in forever, and when the taste finally tantalises your tongue, all your hopes are given life.
The succulent flavour hits you like a mouth full of Skittles, shooting all the fantastic flavours of the rainbow about like fireworks of flavour. It’s a true rarity to find weed infused with such taste, but Zkittlez weed is everything you dreamed and more.
The effects of the Zkittlez strain hit fast and provide a smooth, enjoyable and layered high. This super mellow high is surpringly uplifting and absolutely perfect for a relaxed night in.
While relaxation is certainly the strongest consideration of this cannabis, the sensation only forms the first of many layers. Zkittlez is cherished for its focused, alert and happy attributes. It’s a social strain, through and through, and perfect to unwind with at any time of day, letting your sensory perceptions drift away with your favourite music or TV.
That said, it’s also ideal for creativity and busying yourself around the house with chores or those tasks you’ve been building up all week. These energetic bursts have been known to fade once the full body relaxation kicks in, though, so make sure to take advantage of it while it lasts!
Even when the blessed full body relaxation sweeps over you, these buds aren’t one for inducing couch lock. You should, however, prepare for a chronic case of the munchies (maybe buy multiple packs of Skittles?) and the potential for red eyes and dry mouth. Oh yes, it’s going to be one of those evenings, friends.
Gather a group of ganja enthusiasts for a taste of this rainbow and you’re in store for a memorable night of sheer contentment, and possibly even some grounded, esoteric and mind opening conversations, if inner clarity is your cup of tea.
Though Zkittlez weed can rank with some of the highest THC strains, coming in between fifteen and twenty-three percent, its unique hit makes it ideal for beginners as well as lifetime smokers.
This is a strain you can function on, unless you have low tolerance. If you know you’re a two toke Tommy, then go easy, ace.
Growing Zkittlez Seeds
Despite its status, growing Zkittlez seeds has proven a relatively simple commitment. This is perhaps owing to its genetics, or maybe the original strain’s upbringing, but you’re in store for a stress free grow with this pleasantly resilient plant.
The sensational Skittles aroma takes root early on, gifting absolute joy during the grow.
Plants can reach between forty and eighty inches and can be grown indoors or outdoors. Ganja growers indoors should use a setup with high discharge lamps to produce the required light and mimic a northern California climate. Grown to perfection, the indoors cultivator can net up to thirteen ounces per square metre.
Growers working outside are going to need a mild California climate, but can be rewarded with up to seventeen ounces per plant for their love and attention.
This strain is truly all about the art of timing. Patience is everything if you want an exceptional batch of mouth-watering Zkittlez weed. When properly cured, the flowers emit a sweet and sour funk, punctuated with distinct hits of mixed berries and zesty lemon.
Those hoping to coax the purple hues from their buds, a sign synonymous with mind-blowing marijuana, should expose their crops to cold temperatures at night just before the flowering starts. Now, keep in mind, that’s cold temperatures, not freezing. Be sensible.
You can expect flowering to begin in around eight to ten weeks.
For best results, be as patient as possible before you harvest, this ensures complete development of the cannabinoids and terpenes. And they directly impact taste, so keep that eagerness in check. As late September/early October is the ideal time to harvest, it’s worth timing your grow appropriately. This all may seem a lot to consider, but it’s really all timing.
Start out with the right knowledge, take the right steps and you can’t go wrong.
