Growing Zkittlez Seeds
These are feminized seeds. Female plants, contrary to male plants, are the ones that actually produce weed. They start flowering when they receive less light per day, i.e. in the Fall or when you manipulate the light cycle indoors.

As a hybrid, Zkittlez is a combination of its parents. Its Sativa side prefers hot, humid climates; however, to see its purple side, you’ll need to give its Indica genetics cool temperatures. To encourage its Grape Ape ancestry, carefully expose the plants to cool overnight temperatures – no lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
In general, Zkittlez plants look like indicas and remain compact and bushy. They thrive both indoors and outdoors. Indoors, their small size works well with Sea of Green (SOG) setups, and their branches are easy to train for a higher yield. Zkittlez plants are reasonably mold- and mildew resistant, which gives them a boost in humid environments. They are beginner-friendly and considered an easy grow for most.
Zkittlez: Flowering & Yield
For indoor grows, Zkittlez plants flower in 8 to 9 weeks on average. If you train your plants correctly, you could harvest up to 13 ounces per square yard. Indoor plants average about four feet; however, it is easy to train them to fit shorter spaces.
Outdoor Zkittlez plants can grow larger and deliver a higher yield. Heights can reach up to six feet, with yields up to 17 ounces per plant. Harvest is typically in early October.
Experiencing the Zkittlez Strain
Zkittlez is the perfect strain for a balanced, mellow high. While the effects are cerebral, it is more of a pleasant buzz than an overwhelming headrush. Zkittlez lovers describe the effect as fun and euphoric with an uplifting sensation. The high lingers softly, with no unpleasant crash, providing a gentle push of energy and positivity, while leaving you relaxed and balanced.
This strain provides a moderate high that is suitable for beginner or occasional users. THC levels can vary between 15% and 23%, depending on how it is grown. Those sensitive to sativas may experience some dizziness, anxiety, or nervousness with this strain, but that tends to go away quickly. Starting with a small amount can help with this issue. There are also the common side effects of dry eyes and dry mouth.
Zkittlez: Taste & Smell
The effects may be moderate, but the flavor is not. Zkittlez is named after a fruity, tropical candy for a reason. While you are growing your plant, you may not notice the sweet smell at first. However, once you harvest and consume them, its unmistakable.
The scent starts off tangy and sour, with a certain amount of herbal notes and some funk. However, you’ll soon notice the citrus, tropical notes that hint at its flavor.
The taste is where Zkittlez truly shines. Its parent strains come together to create a medley of fruity flavors. The initial impression is a heavy load of citrus and sour candy. Then come berry and grape notes that round out the sweet profile. It’s truly pleasant to smoke, with the tropical vibes transporting you to a relaxed state of mind.
Uses for Zkittlez Strain
Zkittlez is one of the best strains for gently boosting your mood, either after a bad day or something more long-term.

The relaxing effect helps melt muscle tension away while the sativa side keeps away couchlock. Zkittlez is the perfect way to end a day and help forget about day-to-day stresses.
