Known for its sweet, fruity taste, the Juicy Fruit (or sometimes Fruity Juice) strain is a 55% Cannabis sativa and 45% Cannabis indica hybrid. Its THC level ranges from 18% to 20%, and its CBG and CBD levels test around 1%. This makes for a well-balanced strain (cultivar) with energetic, time-warping effects. Juicy Fruit can help manage stress and inflammation, anxiety, and depression.
A cross between a pure Afghani indica and a pure Thai sativa — both iconic landrace strains — Juicy Fruit comes from strong roots.
Because they are not the product of crossbreeding, landrace strains are either 100% sativa or 100% indica. These landrace strains are named after the original geographical home of the cannabis plant, which for sativa strains is equatorial countries, and for indica strains is Central Asia.
Juicy Fruit was developed by the seed company Sensi Seeds and named after its delicious flavor profile. With strong tropical and sugary sweet flavors — and a hint of something sour — this strain is very popular among cannabis users and is great for beginners. It’s often advertised as Fruity Juicy, possibly to avoid copyright complications with Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit.
The effects of sativa and indica interact to create a high that starts with mood-boosting, cerebral effects that mellow into a state of relaxation over a few hours. Because it’s so well balanced, this strain will suit any time of day. It is important to note that some people experience a “time-warping” effect when using Juicy Fruit, where three hours may feel like five minutes or vice versa.
