Zkittlez, often known as Skittlez or simply Skittles, is an indica marijuana strain created from a hybrid between Grape Ape and Grapefruit and another unidentified strain. Although Zkittlez takes effect immediately, its head-focused effects are usually modest. This sharp strain has a calming effect, keeping users focused, alert, and cheerful while relaxing the body to help them unwind at any time of day. Zkittlez also impressively took first place in the 2016 Emerald Cup and has also competed in Cannabis Cups in San Francisco and Michigan.
The THC content of Zkittlez has been estimated to be between 15% and 23%, making it a favourite strain for our marijuana connoisseurs. As the body high kicks in, it can momentarily alleviate the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. Physical benefits include relief from chronic pain as well as small irritations. The vibrant purple hues are caused by high quantities of anthocyanin pigments. Trimmed buds have a typical indica structure, being tight and densely packed, with smaller leaves. Zkittlez’s blossoms have a sweet-sour funk to them, as well as slightly more distinct overtones of berry and lemon. Grinding up the petals brings out the strain’s more sour overtones, giving it a skunky flavour.
