Zkittlez is a cross-bred balanced hybrid that inherited its supreme genetics from its unbelievably fruity parent strains. This strain can sometimes feel more indica to some users, but is generally known for its uplifting yet relaxing properties, highlighted by its sour citrus aroma.
Zkittlez is potent mix between Grape Ape and sativa Grapefruit, resulting in a fragrant flower with a complex fruitiness that stands out from the rest. Its THC levels can be milder than its counterparts, but this didn’t stand in its way of bagging the first place Best indica prize at the 2015 Cannabis Cup in both San Francisco and Michigan.

Rumors say that Zkittlez has been cross-bred with another unknown strain to become what it is today, which we can thank the breeders at 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz for. Since then it has only grown more popular as it displays its many useful applications as both a medicinal as well as a recreational plant.
