Kaleidoscopic Candy Cannabis
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.
Flavor and Fragrance of Zkittlez
Unsurprisingly, with a name like Zkittlez, smoking it is much like tasting the rainbow of fruits: its terpene flavor profile lending itself to a sweet blend of grapes and berries that’s deliciously offset with a sour citric bite that lingers on the tongue long after you’re done.
Tropical in fragrance as well as taste, the scent is milder and a tad more mature, with earthy herbal notes. When cured properly, this results in a sweet-sour combo that reveals lemons and berries on a second whiff - all the more intensified upon grinding the flowers, to truly bring out the sour notes.
Whether smoked in a joint or a pipe, Zkittlez Feminized burns with an easily-inhaled, pleasant sort of smoke, bringing out grape-like notes when exhaling - an interesting similarity to the strain’s gorgeous purple coloring.
Thankfully without the sugar rush that comes with the namesake, Zkittlez still packs an incredible high that’s as enticing as the taste, lifting you up, up and away in euphoria. It’s a full-on mental chillout best enjoyed in the evening or before bed, perfect for wiping away your stresses and worries at the end of the day. It can be ideal for loosening the tongue and getting conversation flowing with friends too.
Though a toke of Zkittlez will make its effects known fairly fast, the head high tends to be more on the subtle side, with slight pressure around the temples and eyes occurring first. As a smoker becomes accustomed to this feeling, they’ll soon come to recognize the influence on sensory perceptions, bringing on odd distortions both visual and auditory, creating the illusion of time passing more slowly (by some reports).
If you’re a fan of such trips, go ahead and boost the feeling - smoke Zkittlez in an atmospheric environment with moody music and find yourself lost in a new kind of psychedelia. Tiny ideas will bloom to take up your attention, occupying all the available space in your mind - ideal as an accompaniment when working on detailed tasks of both a complex or mundane nature. Cleaning the house becomes a breeze with a little help from Zkittlez Feminized, but it’ll bring out your creativity too.
Of course, that’s all before the body high creeps up on you, bringing with it a new level of relaxation and buzz that - though not likely to knock you out flat - might just unravel those earlier motivations. Zkittlez becomes a palpable laidback experience as the high wears on, stretching to your very fingertips and dipping your energy levels slowly - hence the recommendation that it be smoked in the late afternoon and evening. Coming down won’t actually send you to sleep, but it will bring with it a quiet lethargy.
Medical Uses of Zkittlez
Zkittlez Feminized is an Indica-dominant strain of many mental and physical comforts, with one toke enough to temporarily wipe away those low mood, depressed feelings, anxiety or daily stresses. Instead it’ll fill you with chilled, pleasant thoughts that let you forget all about the cares of the day.
It has to be said that Zkittlez is a strain of opposites, though - the early effects of the high being great at zoning in focus for those suffering with attention deficit disorders, but if you’re struggling to sleep, Zkittlez can help there too, as its soothing effect is quick to induce lethargy. Similarly, its muscle relaxing properties provide a world of physical benefits, including use as an anti-inflammatory and an analgesic - perfect for those with arthritic joints, sufferers of headaches and migraines, and even PMS cramps.
And let’s not forget that if you’re suffering from eating disorders or your appetite is lacking for any of a variety of reasons, worry no more, as smoking Zkittlez is likely to be closely followed by the munchies too.
Since Zkittlez is a dominant Indica strain, it can be used to successfully relieve pain - from those minor everyday irritations up to more chronic pain, alongside the aforementioned. But it should be noted that the medicinal effects will increase dramatically (alongside enhancing the taste) when extracted to create rosin or hash oil, sweetening the terpenes and smoothing away those niggling pains.
That’s not to say Zkittlez doesn’t come associated with unwanted side effects - some users have reported dizziness, headaches, paranoia and dry eyes and mouth with immoderate consumption - though staying hydrated and using eye drops can help counteract the latter. But consume this strain with caution if you’re prone to panic or have a low tolerance for THC.
Growing Zkittlez Feminized Seeds
Growing up to three feet in the right setting, Zkittlez Feminized is a strong, small to medium sized plant. Filled with an abundance of the close-packed pine cone shaped buds that are characteristic of most Indica plants, it still holds its own structurally, and doesn’t need support even as the flowers grow heavier.
The flowers, too, aren’t without note - dazzling and lovely in shades of green and purple, interspersed with vibrant pistils (hairs) of amber throughout that slowly transform to a fiery red. A gorgeous color-show that’s the result of anthocyanin pigments that are highly concentrated in this particular strain. Dusted with a pearlescent cloud of white trichomes to boot, you can be assured of Zkittlez’ stickiness and psychoactivity.
It must be said though, that Zkittlez will require a bit of trimming and pruning, as the plant can get fairly bushy if left unattended. But even a newbie can deal with this plant - Zkittlez is relatively easy to grow indoors, so long as light cycles are correct and odor control is maintained.
Due to its reasonable sizing, Zkittlez Feminized doesn’t take up too much space and it’s easy enough to maximize turnout with a simple Sea of Green setup. Though it can be grown indoors or in a hot, humid climate, the plant will be more pungent in soil, but it’ll develop well in hydroponics too. If you’re looking to bring out the bud’s purple colors, then exposing the crop to cold temperatures just before flowering begins is highly recommended. Then it’s just 7-9 weeks of flowering and you’re left with a tasty 1.63 ounces at harvest of fruity candy joy to enjoy.
A dazzling fruity rainbow of euphoria, Zkittlez is easy to grow and easy to love. Newbies can rejoice at the effortlessness of growing this delicious strain in the simplest of environments, with just a trim necessary to keep this gorgeous green and violet plant in check.
Once harvested, Zkittlez continues to scintillate the senses with tropical aromas that entice the taste buds with notes of berries, the sour tang of grapefruit and a hint of lemon. Sit back and enjoy the ride of flavors as the high slides in, subtly boosting your perceptions as the body-high follows with the sweet, sweet buzz that chills out every nerve ending you’ve got. Perfect if you’re struggling to sleep, with pain, lack of appetite, stress, anxiety or low mood, Zkittlez will ease them all.
