Zkittlez is an Indica-dominated (70% Indica and 30% Sativa) hybrid strain bred by 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz, a resulting cross between Grape Ape and Grape Fruit. This is a very famous strain with many trophies to its name. It won first place in 2016 for the Emerald Cup California and 2015 best Indica Cannabis Cup in both Francisco and Michigan. Zkittlez has a low THC Value of just 15%, but some phenotypes have recorded up to 23%.
The plant is usually dense and has chunky flowers with different green color variations and purples hues. Zkittlez is distinguished from other Indica-dominated cannabis strains with its orange pistils sprinkled throughout the plant. The buds are characterized by small leaves and cloudy white trichomes that give it a sticky feeling and a psychoactive effect.
Properly-cured Zkittlez flowers have strong sweet to sour scents with distinct overtones of both berry and lemon. When smoked, it gives off a pleasant taste of fruit and grape. Many gardeners have successfully cultivated this strain both indoors and outdoors with a significant yielding. It performs well in a hot and humid climate. But if you want more purple shades, you should subject it to cold nighttime temperatures. That should be done a few weeks to flowering, which usually begins between the 8th and 10th week.
Despite the low level of THC, Zkittlez effects manifest relatively quickly, beginning with a head-focused effect. After just a few puffs, you will start experiencing slight pressure around the face region before taking a toll on the sensory nerves. The strain also has cerebral effects that make you more creative, energetic, and more attentive. These mental activating effects make Zkittlez a perfect treat during the day before facing your long-to-do list. Some users have also reported a relaxation that slowly spread throughout the body and calming effect that helps rewind the day activities.
Zkittlez is a perfect strain for treating medical conditions such as chronic pain, insomnia, inflammation, chronic stress, etc.
