The beloved cereal Froot Loops has been around for many years. Introduced to the market in 1963, different generations enjoyed its tropical flavors. It should come as no surprise that many adults now have taken inspiration from each chewy spoonful. In fact, a strain was named after it.
Fruit Loops is a delicious strain that boasts a fruity terpene profile that hails from four flavorful strains:
Blue Dream. A dreamy strain with an enthralling berry flavor, Blue Dream enlivens the senses and wakes users up from lethargy. It inspires an upbeat mood as well as a clarity that inspires creativity.
White Widow. White Widow is renowned for its impressive trichome production. It boasts crystalline buds that give it the look of a white cast, signaling what is to come. Its effects are quite stimulating, enhancing both sociability and the quality of one’s conversation.
Grapefruit. Sativas have fruity profiles and Grapefruit is no different. It is deliciously fruity, coating the tongue in an amalgam of fruity flavors with a particular distinction of grapefruits.
Blueberry. This popular Indica-dominant strain embodies its name. It tastes like fresh blueberries and an overall sweetness emanates in its aftertaste as well. However, instead of invigorating, its effects are mostly heavy-limbed.
Apart from being a delight to the senses, Fruit Loops induces a gentle stimulating head high that improves the mood within minutes after the first few puffs. It raises energy levels although not to the point of overwhelming the mind. Complementing the initial onset is a soothing buzz that lays tiredness to rest.

The onset comes quick for Fruit Loops. Within minutes after the first two to three puffs, it delivers a gentle euphoria that uplifts spirits and calms the nerves. It improves the mood too, encouraging a contented and social disposition. Used with friends, it is likely to inspire interesting conversations. Although, one could also choose to use it alone.
Two to three hours from the onset of cerebral buzz, a soothing sensation begins to form between the temples. It comes in waves, rushing into the muscles with a deep relaxation. Tensions free as it eventually turns into a heavy buzz that settles into the limbs. Users gradually begin to feel drowsy until the eyes droop so low and one slips into a deep, unencumbered sleep.
Fruit Loops could be used any time of the day. However, it must be moderated so it remains pleasant. Too much could be counterproductive, especially when used during the day. However, as an end-of-day treat, its sedating comedown is welcome against the accumulated stress.
