Effects & Usage



Take a bite into the world of Zkittlez, an Indica-dominant hybrid that’s as delightful and refreshing as a bunch of fruity candies. Born from the union of two grapey strains, it showcases moderate THC levels of 14-20%, making it a perfect choice for cannabis rookies. Expect a colourful journey leading you through a well-rounded high, blending the best of cerebral stimulation and bodily relaxation.


Zkittlez’s moderate THC content ensures a potent yet easily manageable and not overwhelmingly high. Its swift onset starts with a gentle cerebral rush, making you highly aware of your senses and the surroundings. It is promptly joined by blissful euphoria, leading to a solid feel-good sensation where you feel motivated, elated and ready to take on challenges. The cerebral buzz inspires deep thinking and concentration and will be perfect for helping you get through lengthy tasks. Everything seems much more fun when you are high on Zkittlez, regardless of whether it is a fascinating art project or a long house-cleaning session. It will also enhance meetings with your friends, creating an atmosphere of joy, laughter and inspiring conversations.

Progressively, these sensations are accompanied by profound calmness, slowly sending your body to the comfort of your couch or bed. Therefore, Zkittlez will work best as an afternoon pick-me-up when you need extra motivation or during the evenings to kick back after a long, stressful day.

The unique blend of terpenes and cannabinoids in Zkittlez exhibits a wide range of medicinal potential. Due to the presence of linalool, the strain has excellent relaxing properties that can relieve symptoms of chronic stress, anxiety and insomnia. It is also an uplifting strain, helping temporarily lift the mood of depression. Moreover, the combination of CBG (at 1% concentration), caryophyllene and humulene ensure powerful analgesic and anti-inflammatory action, thus potentially relieving migraines, arthritis and muscle spasms.

Lastly, it can reduce nausea and increases the desire for food, which may be helpful to individuals struggling with a lack of appetite or eating disorders.

Side effects

Typical side effects of Zkittlez include the standard dry mouth and dry eyes, along with potential mild headaches and dizziness. However, if enjoyed responsibly, it’s generally well-tolerated. In rare cases, Zkittlez excessively may lead to anxiety and increased paranoia, especially if you are sensitive to such conditions. Use responsibly, starting with a single puff and gradually increasing your dose if needed.

Taste & Smell


Just like the candy it’s named after, Zkittlez was crafted to charm and delight the senses. Upon the first whiff, you will notice the berry, fruity candy notes with a hint of sour aroma that becomes especially prevalent upon breaking up the buds. The strain’s flavour is an enticing combination of grape, lemon and berries, resulting in a smooth, pleasant smoke that leaves delightful grape notes in your mouth. A cherry on top is the look of the plant with its beautiful, large purple leaves and densely packed buds covered in thick trichomes that give it a fluffy appearance.



Zkittlez’s creation can be attributed to the Californian Dying Breed Seeds, who fused two renowned fruity strains: Grape Ape and Grapefruit, to create a fascinating hybrid as delicious as a box of its namesake candy. The strain didn’t take long to receive widespread acclaim, as proven by its 2015 and 2016 wins in Emerald Cup and Cannabis Cups.

Growing conditions

This plant is an exciting choice for both novice and experienced growers thanks to its low-maintenance, easygoing nature. It displays high resistance against mould and mildew and is versatile in the growing environment. If you want to grow Zkittlez outdoors, you are in luck – the plant loves a hot, sunny climate as long as you keep it dry.

Another advantage of the strain is its unusually short flowering time, between 7 to 8 weeks. As a result, you will enjoy a harvest of around 350 grams per square metre indoors and 450-500 grams per plant outdoors.
