Fruit Loops

Fruit Loops – not to be confused with the sugary breakfast cereal Froot Loops – is a flavorful indica hybrid descended from some legendary strains. Said to be a four-way cross between Blueberry, White Widow, Grapefruit, and Blue Dream, Fruit Loops has a prestigious lineage.

White Widow is one of the most recognizable strains worldwide, and Blueberry took the High Times Cannabis Cup for best indica in 2000.  As no significant breeder has claimed responsibility for creating Fruit Loops, seeds are not commercially available, meaning prospective growers must source cuttings from mature plants to grow genetically identical clones.

This well-balanced strain has genetics that leans slightly in favor of indica (55% indica and 45% sativa), meaning its uplifting and stimulating powers go hand in hand with a deep and resonant relaxation.

Some strains are considered one-hit wonders, whereas Fruit Loops is slightly more subtle, with users reporting a comfortable and gradual onset of effects. A profound sense of physical relaxation and ease is countered by a surge in mental activity and creativity for the user.

Fruit Loops boasts moderate tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels, averaging 18%-22%. It is considered a mellow, well-rounded, and multipurpose strain, suitable for socializing and relaxing, enhancing creativity, and helping with pain management. Not surprisingly, Fruit Loops’ sweet berry aroma and sugary cereal taste have been compared to treats like blueberries, candy, birthday cake, and tropical fruits. Its effects make Fruit Loops potentially helpful in managing anxiety and depression.

Terpenes are also found in many other aromatic plants, including sage, thyme, tea, lemon, and other citrus.
