The fruity aroma and succulent flavour produced by Sweet ZZ are a must for candy-loving cannabis growers. Tempting the senses all the way to harvest, its glistening buds are like your very own sweet shop. Combined with an equally uplifting high, it is a thoroughly enjoyable indica hybrid that leaves your body relaxed and your mind refreshed.
Sweet ZZ: The Descendant of Fruity Parents Grape Ape and Grapefruit
Its delicious and aromatic terpenes stem from parent strains Grape Ape and Grapefruit. The masterful blend of genetics that has led to the development of Zkittlez, Sweet ZZ, represents just how far cannabis cultivation has come. Despite its indica dominance, Sweet ZZ keeps its effects firmly focused on the mind, not the body. Typically, indica strains centre on providing relief to aching muscles with a mild feeling of euphoria. Sweet ZZ flips the game on its head. While still leaving you relaxed, its attention is instead turned toward hitting you with waves of uplifting thoughts and feel-good vibes.
An Eruption of Berries, Citrus, and Candy
Sweet ZZ is the physical embodiment of happiness. The emotion exudes through its flavour profile, saccharine taste, and pleasantly rewarding high. It isn't often that mild potency is a favoured trait. In this case, savouring every last hit is a must, and thankfully, several joints of Sweet ZZ can be enjoyed before reaching the point of no return. With 15–20% THC, it is enough to start paving the way for enlightenment but not enough to have you surfing the cosmos with complete mental abandonment.
Big Flavour, Even Bigger Yields
Early on in the vegetative stage, its distinct aroma starts to build. Hints of berry and grape fill the air, while its buds glisten with various shades of green and hints of purple. During flowering, a large central cola forms, supported by several smaller nugs from its outstretched branches. Yields are also impressive, regardless of whether you grow it indoors or out, with 500–700g/m² and 400–600g/plant, respectively.
Although it seems a shame to cut it down, late September is the ideal time to do so. This allows growers to take full advantage of its unique characteristics. Indoors, flowering only takes 7–9 weeks, although it is recommended that it is left until the end of that time frame. The extra week or two ensures complete development of its terpenes and cannabinoids. You don’t want to lose a single drop of flavour!
