Zkittlez is a hybrid made from the combination of Grape Ape and Grapefruit. Zkittlez is said to be surprisingly uplifting for an indica. It’s also said to leave consumers feeling focused and alert. Zkittlez is a must try for hybrid lovers! This was a purchase from LA Green Run, a delivery service bringing quality flower to consumers in the Southern California region, but you can use an app like Weedmaps to find a shop or delivery service near you that sells Zkittlez.
Zkittlez smells deliciously fruity with a hint of an alcoholic scent like champagne. The smell reminds me of ripe pineapple and I love it. The nugs are massive and absolutely coated in crystallized trichomes and kief. The bud is fluffy and soft, making it super easy to break up with your hands. I’d recommend using a grinder for this strain simply to catch all the wonderful kief it’s covered in. Zkittlez is a vibrant green with pockets of fiery orange and red hairs.
The first time I tried this strain I rolled a blunt. At this point, I was tired of using papers and wanted a bit of a higher dosage than a standard joint could provide. This strain is a bit harsh to smoke but that could also be my lungs protesting the use of a Swisher. The flavor is similar to the smell of the weed and is in fact super pleasant.
The effects were almost instantaneous. The creativity was flowing within 15 minutes. Zkittlez provides a relaxing, sociable, calming, creative, sometimes productive, quite often forgetful, but always enjoyable high. Zkittlez will bring out your inner perfectionist. I felt very focused and alert just as the claims had stated. After an hour I started to feel the indica portion of this strain. This lasted another hour and a half in which I spent the entire time in bed watching YouTube videos. The munchies were nagging at me, but I would’ve rather starved than leave the comfort of my bed. Some of the noted medical uses for this strain include stress, depression, headaches, insomnia, and pain. I don’t have anything negative to say about this strain. I didn’t get the insufferable dry mouth that often comes with consuming cannabis, nor did I feel paranoid or any other negative emotions.
This award-winning combination took 1st Place at the 2016 Emerald Cup and 1st Place Indica at the 2015 Cannabis Cups in San Francisco and in Michigan. I can see why cannabis consumers love this strain. Zkittlez is a mash-up of the best of both worlds: the uplifting, creative effects of a standard sativa, mixed with the relaxing, anxiety-reducing effects we love in indica varieties. Zkittlez will run you anywhere from $22-$65. I got 10g for $65 and it was worth every penny. Zkittlez just shot up to number one on my favorite hybrids list. I’ll definitely be revisiting this strain again in the near future. I think it’d be a great strain to bake with and want to give that a try. I’ll let you guys know how it goes! Until then, stay healthy and stay high.
