Skittlez (aka Zkittlez) by Guru Seeds is an indica dominant hybrid with a fast flowering. Even though it has quite a strong indica heritage, its effects are surprisingly energizing, thanks to a high average THC content.
Heritage & Genetics: Skittlez is a mix of Grapefruit and Grape Ape, back-crossed with an undisclosed phenotype by California-based breeders 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz. Grape Ape itself has an illustrious heritage, being bred from the original Skunk #1. The average THC of this candy-flavored strain is about 20%.
Flavor & Aroma: Borrowing its name from a popular brand of candy, you can almost guess what the taste of this strain is like. Skittlez has a fruity, sweet flavor and produces a grape-like taste when exhaled. When cured correctly, Skittlez flowers emit a characteristic smell with distinct lemony undertones.
Effect: Even though Skittlez is an 80% indica-dominant strain, it has all the effects that we have associated with sativas. An uplifting, cerebral high that almost borders on the psychedelic, Skittlez is perfect for a jam session with your band or other creative activities.
Medical: Ongoing research has suggested that high THC and low CBD strains may have potential benefits including reducing fatigue and relieving symptoms of Glaucoma. Although thought to be more effective when working together with CBD, THC is also understood to have some pain-relieving properties on its own. Considering this, this high THC strain may also provide some relief from general aches and pains.
Grow characteristics: Skittlez is a relatively easy plant to grow (thanks to its indica heritage), with a vigorous growth pattern and bushy branches that respond well to SCROG training methods. The plant will grow equally comfortably indoors in any hydroponic or soil growing system, producing respectable yields. During flowering, it will develop resin-covered dense buds, which will spread its fruity aroma all over your growing area.
