The High Points of Skittles
Skittles was made possible via crossing an Indica-dominant mix of different strains which includes Grapefruit, Grape Ape, and another strain whose origin is unknown. The mystery strain.
You know a strain with a name like Skittles is going to have a rainbow of amazing bag appeal. And feel the rainbow we did indeed. This strain delivers on all levels, from its eye-pleasing appeal to its candy-like scent. The buds are coated in trichomes and explode with pungent aroma when broken apart for combusting or vaping purposes.
This Indica-strong strain packs a pretty strong punch, so be prepared to chill after partaking in a few puffs of this powerful sticky stuff. If your tolerance is fairly high, then Skittles might be a good choice of daytime strains. But if you have anything important to do you might want to wait until your day is done before engaging in a sesh with this strain. Just sayin’. And the taste? Think multi-berry flavored candy and you’ve nailed it. 😉 THC ratio: 14-18%. Type: Hybrid. Lineage: Grape Ape x Grapefruit x ??
Skittles has been reported to have a host of medical attributes that include, but surely aren’t limited to:
- Relieving migraines
- Alleviating chronic pain
- Sleep aid
- Mood elevation
- Relieving nausea
- Appetite stimulant
- Relieving stress
As with most Indica and Indica-dominant strains, Skittles is fairly easy to grow. This strain produces a medium-sized bush when topped at an early stage in the vegetation phase of growth and is ready to harvest after around 55-60 days of flowering. Skittles produces a medium yield with dense nugs covered in sugar.
