Forbidden Fruit

Forbidden Fruit is an indica-dominant strain that came about through the crossbreeding of Cherry Pie and Tangie strains. The indica-to-sativa ratio is around 70:30, respectively.

Forbidden Fruit offers substantial tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels, often around 25%, significantly higher than many other strains (cultivars). These levels send the body of its users into deep relaxation. Those who have tried Forbidden Fruit have described it as having a distinct taste of sweet berries, mangoes, grapefruit, and a sweet, tropical fruit aroma.

The effects of Forbidden Fruit come on strongly and lead to a potent and intoxicating high that slowly decreases and induces sleepiness; therefore, it’s best to be used later in the day or evening. This cultivar could be very useful for managing chronic pain, anxiety, and insomnia.
