Fruity Pebbles is an indica dominant hybrid (55% indica/45% sativa) created by breeders at the infamous Alien Genetics cannabis farms. This dank bud is a cross between the hugely popular Green Ribbon X Granddaddy Purple X Tahoe OG X Alien Kush strains and boasts a moderate THC level that ranges from 18-21% on average. Fruity Pebbles first gained popularity in SoCal in 2006 when it was first introduced and since then has become one of the most popular strains on the market. Users describe the Fruity Pebbles high as one that starts as a soft strong body buzz that is mind-relieving and spacey followed by a mild couch-lock. It’s cloudy, slowing things down around you, but still leaves you with a hugely energetic high in which you are relaxed, friendly, and lethargic, but still functional if you want to be. Fruity Pebbles is ideal for patients who suffer from conditions such as chronic pain and mood disorders, due to its relaxing body buzz and uplifting cerebral high. This bud tastes exactly like a bowl of Fruity Pebbles, a sweet, tropical berry, and smells just as good! The nugs are a light minty green with a fluffy body and a blanket of resin and crystals. The most interesting feature is the coloration of the hairs that are woven through the bud – they’re a rainbow fusion of reds, purples, yellows, and oranges!
Most cannabis strains sold under the label Fruity Pebbles provide a hybrid-type high that takes hold quickly, with a soft but strong body buzz that can provide relaxation and some spacey, psychedelic effects. Many fans of the strains describe a strange physical sensation and a sharpening of the senses and a heightened awareness that can lend itself to stimulating conversation, creative projects, or even exercise. However, the more indica-dominant varieties of Fruity Pebbles have the capacity to produce produce heavy body highs that cause couchlock. In general, these strains may be effective medication for pain, mood disorders, migraines, and attention deficit disorders. Indica-leaning phenotypes are also very helpful in relieving insomnia, and easing mental tension.
Appearance & Aroma
Fruity Pebbles is marked by long and densely-packed conical buds that look strikingly different from the smaller, more compact nugs more typical of pure indicas. Leaves are green, although many phenotypes have vibrant shades of purple and red with contrasting orange pistils. These bright colors — which provide further reason for this strain’s name — are the result of anthocyanins, compounds similar to chlorophyll in the plant that produce colors when exposed to cold temperatures. Perhaps most notably, Fruity Pebbles has a sweet, tropical scent, similar to citrus and berries. Breaking the buds open yields a more spicy, hashy scent. When combusted, the smoke from this strain is smooth when drawn through a joint or a pipe and it has a sugary, fruity aftertaste.
