Get ready for one of the hottest strains of the last few years. Zkittles is without a doubt one of the most interesting recent developments in cannabis genetics. A cross between Grapefruit and the legendary Grape Ape strain give Zkittles (pronounced “Skittles”) a juicy, sweet, and tangy taste. Add this strain’s respectable THC concentration, which ranges from the high teens to low 20s, and it’s easy to see why so many people have fallen in love with Zkittles in recent years.
- Medium-high THC content: around 19 percent
- Uncommon terpene profile: humane grants unique flavour
- Indica-dominant genetics – best used for relaxing
Appearance and Aroma
Zkittles’ aroma and flavour are two of its highlights. It boasts an unusual terpene profile, which includes humane as one of its prominent features. Humane has a hoppy, intense taste, which informs the scent of this strain. It attacks the nose, but in a different way than its terpene cousin pinene would. It also gives this strain a powerful flavour that refuses to be ignore, hitting hard and fast.
Effects and Use
If you want a high-powered indica-dominant mix, you’re in the right place. Zkittles balances the relaxing, laid-back high of indicas by tempering it with a slight zing of sativa. It’s still ultimately a strain made for chilling, and is noticeably more tranquil than other hybrids with more sativa genetics. That makes it great for kicking back with friends and chilling after a long day.
Zkittles also has many features that medical patients will enjoy. As an indica-dominant hybrid with a decent amount of THC, Zkittles’ possible benefits are enhanced. It also takes advantage of a phenomenon called the Entourage Effect. Its unique terpene profile may enhances its ability as a medicine. This strain may be able to help patients manage maladies like:
- Anxiety disorders
- Depression and mood imbalances
- Low appetite
- Chronic pain
- Inflammatory issues
