Aptly named, the red, purple and orange colors of this indica-dominant hybrid strain’s flowers resemble a bowl of your favorite childhood cereal. Imparting a gradual but powerful body high, save Fruity Pebbles for a lazy afternoon with friends.
First appearing on the marijuana scene around 2006, Fruity Pebbles is a cross between Granddaddy Purple, Green Ribbon and Tahoe Alien. Bred by Alien Genetics, the seeds for this rare cannabis strain once sold for $1,000–$1,500 a pack.
Break apart the buds of this photogenic flower, and you’ll note an earthy, berry aroma. Upon inhaling, you’ll see how this strain got its name—similar to eating a bowl of your favorite sugary childhood cereal, Fruity Pebbles has a sweet, fruity taste with tropical and citrus notes. The beautiful flowers of this cannabis strain also resemble a bowl of Fruity Pebbles with red and purple hues and orange hairs.
Fruity Pebbles is known for a slow, building body buzz followed by a cerebral high that sharpens the senses. Those with a low tolerance or who are new to cannabis should take note—in high doses, Fruity Pebbles might leave you stuck to your couch.
Overall, this indica-dominant hybrid is best used as an afternoon strain. It’s not going to help you check off your to-do list, but it shouldn’t incapacitate you, if you’re careful with your dosing.
Medical marijuana patients use Fruity Pebbles for its body high, which is strong enough for various types of pain. This cannabis strain’s ability to induce a sense of calm also makes it a good match for those with anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia.
