Origins, Genetics, History
Zkittlez Type: Zkittlez is a hybrid of the following strains:
- Grape Ape
Zkittlez is a flavorful blend of Grapefruit weed and Grape Ape. This gives it a mad boost of fruity goodness, like a mouthful of Skittles candy. Zkittlez weed does not have an overdose of THC in it, so it’s a good weed for beginners. It has balanced stimulation and relaxation and is a 50 % Indica and 50 % Sativa. According to one of our sources, this blend was bred by Terp Hogz and 3rd Gen Family. Another source says it was bred by Dying Breed Seeds. If you can clear up this issue, leave a comment below. In any case, this fruity weed did not go unnoticed. It won 1st place Best Indica in the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup. It came back in 2016 and won 1st place at the Emerald Cup. Though THC levels only rise to a maximum of 19 %, this is obviously a majorly enjoyable weed by seasoned tokers.
Appearance and Smell
Zkittlez is a cannabis plant of medium height. The buds are said to be hefty and busty like a broad with bosoms out to here. Many breeders like to make this plant as colorful as possible, like its name sake, the sweet, rainbow colored candies called Skittles. You can spy green leaves and buds tinged with purple and doted with bright orange hairs and blanketed in reflective white trichomes. The flavor is sour and sweet, just like Skittles candy. How do they make a weed taste just like candy? Ask the breeders at 3rd Gen Family. We can say for now that it is done naturally, not by means of CRISPR gene editing. This is not a Franken-weed. The mid-range THC levels are actually a good sign. A weed bred for flavor should not also have high THC levels, or you might have a Franken-weed on your hands. You have to trade THC levels for flavor and it’s a good trade off. You don’t always want to be knocked on your back. Sometimes you need a little stress and pain relief, but you wanna go back to work and be productive, not comatose.

How to Grow Zkittlez Cannabis Seeds or Cuttings
Growing weed from Zkittlez cannabis seeds is said by growers to be an easy undertaking. Though careful selection created this flavorful weed, it was done naturally and gradually, such that the plant maintained its resilience against stressors. You want a northern Cali, mild and dry climate to grow this weed.
Grown indoors, you want to mimic the northern California sun and mildness. You can use your usual tent set up with high discharge lamps to produce the amount of sun needed for these plants. You can use your five gallon buckets or a hydroponic set-up if you want to experiment with increasing yields. It will take 8 weeks before it’s ready to flower. You can get as much as 13 ounces of weed for every square inch of growing space.
Outdoors, choose a spot without too much rain or humidity and lots of sun. Exposure to the elements will strengthen the plants and bring out the flavors and hues you want in your candy weed. You can expect plants to flower at the beginning of October and produce a yield of about 17.5 ounces of busty buds for each plant.

Zkittlez is a delicious smoke. It’s not too heavy, not too stimulating, and won’t lock you to the couch. That makes it a great weed for the middle of the day when you are free of responsibilities and have a couple of hours to kill. This is a weed that many people will be able to function on, getting the benefit of relief from anxiety and pain while still being able to perform their jobs. Not a lot of employers are okay with you smoking on the job even in legal marijuana states. Other people can’t function even on a weak weed, so it’s not for everyone. So, find some free time to be on the safe side, not time you are supposed to be spending with the kids or what not, but truly free time. Perhaps have some friends, some snacks, and a movie. This weed will not put you to sleep, so after an hour or two, you can get back to gettin’ that money, however you do it.
