Zkittlez Strain

Indica Dominant Hybrid 70% Indica / 30% Sativa

THC: 13% - 15%

ZKittlez is an indica dominant hybrid strain created through a cross of the deliciously powerful Grape Ape X Grapefruit strains. Although the exact indica to sativa ratio varies based on breeder practices, ZKittlez has been measured consistently at having a low THC level of 15%. Despite this relatively mild THC level, this bud placed first for Best Indica at both the 2015 Cannabis Cups in San Francisco and Michigan. Despite its low THC level, this bud packs a powerful flavorful punch. ZKittlez has a super fruity aroma of sweet tropical earth with a slight herbal effect to it. The flavor is even better, with a sweet berry taste that has a crisp tropical citrus aftertaste that lingers on the tongue long after you finish smoking. The ZKittlez is just as enticing as its taste, although it is relatively mellow in nature. It starts with an uplifting head buzz that leaves you euphoric and creatively inspired but not anxious or overwhelmed. This is accompanied by a relaxing body buzz that slowly spreads throughout the body and to your very fingertips, leaving you completely calm and pain free without limiting your movement. A mild sleepy effect will wash over you upon the comedown, although it won't put you to sleep. These effects make ZKittlez the perfect choice for treating patients suffering from conditions such as insomnia, chronic pain, mild cases of depression, chronic stress or anxiety, and inflammation. This bud has large and lumpy pepper-shaped dark olive green nugs with sparse rich amber hairs and a thick frosty coating of tiny crystal white trichomes.

Pretty good strain


I would say this strain is great if you just want to get a buzz going without committing 2-4 hours to being high. It smells exactly like Skittles candy, which is the singular highlight of this strain (its terpene profile is utterly unique and delectable). It produces a mild, short-lived high that is pretty well balanced between indica and sativa effects. Paranoia is unlikely to be a problem due to its relatively low THC content and balanced effects. I can't testify to taste as I've never smoked it out of a waterpipe. Out of a handpipe, it smokes pretty harsh-- probably due to the buds being mostly made of vegetative material rather than resin. Buds tend to be large, conical, and somewhat fluffy {not very dense}. This is a great strain for MJ novices for whom trying higher THC potencies-- especially with salivas, SDHs', and hybrids-- may result in an overly intense and unpleasant experience. I don't consider this strain to be very useful as medical cannabis, but that's only my personal opinion.


Great taste, good for anxiety and stress. Not overpowering which makes it good to smoke with friends relaxing.


Cool name. Sweet smell. Awesome flavor. High was medium scaled to me. Nothing over the top or that great. Smell & flavor was the best experience but the high needed work. Could have been a slacker grown batch but would love to try a better batch of it if it can get better


"Taste The Rainbow", indeed. If you have had any flavor of Skittles like me then you now know exactly what this strain's scent & flavor is. Sweet, fruity, tropical, citrus, & piney. Buds were medium green with dark purple & lots of burnt orange pistils. Crystal trichomes were encrusted on the buds which were fresh & slightly sticky. I got happy, uplifted, relaxed, calm, & mellow. Don't let the lower THC level fool you this is a multiply time "CUP" winner for a reason. Cheers!


Smells just like the candy, tastes great. However, weak buzz and not very helpful to me medically. Worth a try but will not get again. It’s worth noting I’m an indica toker with stomach conditions.


Honeycomb clear Pen when it comes to this strain.


The hype is real with this strain. Some strains taste great and hit hard. Some strains don't hit as hard, but taste amazing. Zkittlez both tastes amazing and hits really hard. Indica high with a weirdly psychedelic and uplifting aspect that makes it good for any time during the day. If I had to smoke nothing but this strain for the rest of my life, I can't say I'd be upset about it.


This strain tastes & smells like no other I've tried in 47 years. A prime example of a sweet Bay Area dessert strain slams you with a tooty-fruity aroma redolent of limonene [or a mouthful of the half-chewed candies]. Exclusive Exoticz delivers a great Zkittlez crop that is as potent, SMOOTH (I keep thinking it's not lit), and good for pain & muscle tension with no anxiety. One of Exclusive Exoticz's NO PARANOIA strains (I FOUND). Happy in Palo Alto.


Zkittlez is grape ape x grapefruit x mystery strain? They won't reveal the mystery strain. It is not just grape ape x grapefruit!!! It does not test high for thc but don't be fooled. The terpenes in Zkittlez will hit you as hard as any strain out there with taste and flavor for days. Took me a while to try this because I don't follow hype trains but with zkittlez the hype is real.
