Blue Skittles Strain

Skittles are a staple of American candy which makes this Blue Skittles strain review imperative to do.

All cannabis enthusiasts would love to have a sweet candy taste after smoking. Blue Skittles is also referred to as Blue Zkittlez so make sure not to buy into the misconception they are different strains.

Blue Skittles not only sounds delicious as a blue skittle taste is one that a number of people love. For those looking to graduate to stronger marijuana, this can be a great step in the right direction.

Blue Skittles Strain Genetics

Is Blue Skittles strain an indica or sativa?

The Blue Skittles strain has great genetics as it is an Indica-dominant hybrid of Blue Diamond and Zkittlez. For some cannabis consumers, this could be a massively heavy Indica so consumption might be better at the end of the day.

Blue Diamond is bred by BioQueen genetics with an unknown lineage. The buds of this strain are large and ready to harvest after 8 weeks of flowering. Expect this Indica to have an earthy taste.

Zkittlez is a hybrid of Grapefruit and Grape Ape which contributes to its fruity flavor. This strain has won the 2016 Emerald Cup and 2015 Cannabis Cup in San Francisco. The strain was originally bred by 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz originally.

The combination of these two juggernaut Indica strains results in the beautiful and pungent Blue Skittles. Be careful with this strain as the high will increase for minutes after you last exhale.

Overconsumption can lead to sleepiness so make sure you follow the less is more smoking rule.

Platinum Zkittlez can be a great strain to try if you love any strain with Zkittlez lineage. Growing Blue Zkittlez needs to be done by first finding the seeds with the best genetics.

Looking up reviews of seed banks is important especially reviews that are left on websites other than the seller’s site.

Blue Skittles Strain Yield

Blue Zkittlez strain yield differs depending on whether it is grown outdoors or indoors. Indoor grows produce less in terms of yield unless you are growing an autoflowering strain. Blue Zkittlez can be grown both outdoor and indoor.

Be aware that this is an extremely pungent strain so covering this odor can tough when grown outdoors. Planting some Jasmine around the plants that is flowering can help cover the odor but will not eliminate it.

Growers will be happy as the yield for this strain is relatively high. A grower can expect 2 to 4 ounces per square foot indoors.

Outdoors a grower can expect 4 to 6 ounces per square foot. Blue Zkittlez is not the most difficult strain to grow but shouldn’t be for a first-time grower.

Flavor and Aroma of Blue Zkittlez

Myrcene is perfect for a person looking for a terpene to relax. Limonene tastes like lemons/citrus and also helps fight stress/anxiety.

Linalool helps fight against stress and even depression. Caryophyllene and Carene help fight inflammation so it can be good to treat pain but Carene carries a citrus flavor.

For those that love the flavor of Blue Zkittlez, trying other marijuana skittles strains can be wise. The flavor of First 48 and Purple Cheddar are similar.

If you are looking for similar effects then look into trying strains like Pineapple Fields or the THC juggernaut at 24 percent of Alien Cake.
