Skittlz apparently gets its name from its decidedly fruity aroma and flavor; there are also notes of Skunk and diesel fuel in the taste and smell of this strain. The bud is multi-colored, another indicator of Skittlz’s similarities to Skittles the candy. This marijuana strain is sativa-dominant, with a sativa/indica ratio of about 60:40. It’s the result of a cross between Pure Power Plant, a potent sativa also known as PPP, and Wakeford, a rare hybrid with Skunk and G-13 genetics. Skittlz produces a calming, potent euphoric sensation with mental relief and a strong case of the munchies. That alone makes this a good choice for patients suffering from wasting or eating disorders, though it’s also an effective treatment for migraines and other headaches, inflammation, nausea, and chronic physical pain.
