Zkittlez Feminized Cannabis

Genetics and Origins

Zkittlez, also known as Skittles or Island Skittles, is an indica-dominant hybrid cannabis strain with a well-rounded genetic profile. It is the result of crossing two well-known strains:

  1. Grape Ape:

    • Genetics: Grape Ape is a potent indica strain created by crossing Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani.
    • Characteristics: Grape Ape contributes to Zkittlez’s strong indica effects, including deep relaxation and stress relief. It also adds to the strain’s fruity flavor profile with grape and berry undertones.
  2. Grapefruit:

    • Genetics: Grapefruit is a sativa-dominant strain known for its uplifting effects and citrusy flavor. It is a hybrid of Cinderella 99 and an unknown sativa.
    • Characteristics: Grapefruit infuses Zkittlez with sativa qualities, such as a euphoric, uplifting high. It also enhances the strain’s sweet, citrusy taste.
  3. Undisclosed Strain:

    • Genetics: The breeders of Zkittlez have kept one part of its lineage a secret, adding an element of mystery to its genetic makeup.
    • Characteristics: This unknown strain likely contributes additional complexity to Zkittlez’s effects and flavor profile.

Effects and Medical Benefits

Zkittlez is a popular cannabis strain known for its sweet, fruity flavor and a THC content that typically ranges from 15-20%, sometimes reaching up to 24%. Its potent yet mellow high makes it ideal for nighttime use and unwinding after a busy day. The strain produces a relaxing body high, perfect for de-stressing.

Zkittlez is effective for relieving stress and managing both chronic and acute pain. It has a balanced CBD and THC content, which helps reduce inflammation and relax muscles. The terpenes in Zkittlez contribute to its anti-inflammatory properties and promote overall relaxation and well-being. Additionally, Zkittlez provides a profound calming effect, making it helpful for reducing anxiety and aiding in a restful night’s sleep.

  • Indoor Growth: Can be successfully grown indoors with controlled conditions.

Optimal Conditions:

  • Temperature: Keep plants between 70-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Air Circulation and Humidity: Ensure good air circulation and control humidity to prevent mold, especially on dense buds.

Indoor vs. Outdoor Cultivation:

  • Indoor:
    • Height: 80-100 cm
    • Yield: Up to 700 grams per square meter
    • Flowering Time: 56 to 63 days
  • Outdoor:
    • Height: 100-150 cm
    • Yield: 400-600 grams per plant

Tips for Maximizing Yield and Potency:

  • Soil pH: Maintain pH levels between 6.0 and 7.0.
  • Soil Enhancements: Add compost or mulch to improve drainage, aeration, and provide extra nutrients.

Taste and Aroma

Zkittlez is renowned for its delightful and complex flavor profile, which is often compared to a burst of fruity candy. Here are the key elements of its taste and aroma:

  1. Sweetness: The most prominent characteristic, reminiscent of sugary treats.
  2. Fruity Notes: Dominated by tropical fruits, with strong hints of berry, citrus, and grape.
  3. Citrus Undertones: A zesty, refreshing quality that adds to the overall sweetness.
  4. Earthy and Herbal Hints: Subtle earthy and herbal notes balance the fruity sweetness, providing a well-rounded flavor.

Make sure your plant receives maximum sunlight and a high EC of 2.0 – 3.0 for best results.   During the bloom phase we recommend the Nutrifield Organic Bud Burst product for insane results!   Simply add Bud Burst as an organic supplement to your existing nutrient regime from week 4-5 on for next level bud formation with a super clean, premium quality organic finish.   Highly recommended!

Tips for Successful Cultivation

  • Provide ample sunlight or high-quality grow lights.
  • Maintain a temperature range of 68-80°F (20-27°C).
  • Use well-draining, nutrient-rich soil.
  • Ensure proper ventilation to prevent mold and mildew.
  • Monitor humidity levels to avoid excess moisture.
  • Harvest at the right time to maximize yield and potency.


  • All Cannabis strains, require a full spectrum nutrient complete with the macro nutrients such as Nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium and the secondary nutrients and micronutrients like, calcium, sulphur, hydrogen, magnesium, manganese, carbon, iron, zinc etc.
  • Cannabis are big feeders!  Make sure it has all the nutrients it needs, particularly in the flowering stage, to help the buds become dense. Using soil is slightly more forgiving if you overdo it with the nutrients. If you are using a good quality soil, it will have a lot of nutrients in there already, so there is no need to add any during the seedling stage.
  • During the vegetative phase you will need to give your plant twice as much nitrogen as phosphorus, and three times more nitrogen than potassium. The nutrient ratios to look for on the bottle will be either 6-3-2 or 18-9-6. You should also add in some sulphur, magnesium, and calcium.  
  • During the flowering stage, change the ratio so you are using up to three times more phosphorus than nitrogen and potassium. Also continue to add in secondary nutrients such as iron, copper, and manganese.  Make sure to use orgnanic Bud Burst during flowering all the way as this will ensure a smooth finish with no chemical taste.   Amazing stuff!
  • For organic grows, we recommend Aptus Baseboost organic nutrient   with coco/perlite 70/30 ratio.   This stuff is highly concentrated so a little goes a long way making it great value.     Simply add the pellets to the coco as per the instructions and it will completely transform any inert growing medium into a powerful full spectrum grow media..   

Growing Tips

  • Your Zkittlez strain will need consistent air flow and good ventilation, whether you are choosing the perfect spot for an outdoor grow, or are growing in an indoor grow room. They need air that is rich in oxygen, to help prevent respiration, deter any pests, and allow your plant to grow healthy and strong. Use fans to help circulate air, or if you can afford it, exhaust systems are an excellent choice.

Why buy ‘Feminized’ Seeds

  • Marijuana plants are either male or female.   The male flower produces sacs or pollen designed to fertilize the female flower which produces white pistols designed to absorb the pollen.   If no male plants are present in the growing area, than the female plant will just grow larger and larger flowers in search of pollen.   These flowers are the cannabis buds that we all know and love.   The male plants hold only minuscule amount of THC, while the female flowers are oozing with THC crystals (the good stuff).   For this reason, marijuana growers are seeking only female plants in the grow room (unless they want alot of seedy buds).Feminsed seeds have been cultivated in a precise way so that the seed is genetically more likely to produce a female plant.   Autoflower seeds automatically transition from the vegetative phase to the flowering stage without you needing to adjust their light exposure.   Fore more detailed growing information, see our in depth grow guide.
