Juicy Fruit

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.

Growing

growing strains

The Juicy Fruit plant characteristics are a blend of sativa and indica traits. It stretches tall and thin towards the sky like a typical sativa but flowers in just 50 to 60 days like an indica. Also, expect your Juicy Fruit to turn into a large-leafed thick-stemmed plant.

This strain can be grown indoors, outdoors, and in a greenhouse. Like many cannabis varieties, Juicy Fruit will thrive in a Mediterranean-like environment when growing outdoors. Topping will help promote lateral growth and allow more plant access to direct sunlight. Expect yields of up to 21 ounces per plant in an outside environment and 17 ounces per square meter for indoor plants.

If you choose to grow your Juicy Fruit indoors, you may want to try the “sea of green” growing method to increase the yield. This method involves shortening the plant’s growth phase to grow a larger number of smaller plants for a shorter time to increase overall yield. This method was coined “sea of green” because of the large grow rooms packed full of green cannabis plants.

Height

If grown in the right conditions, you can expect your Juicy Fruit plant to grow up to 9 feet or 3 meters tall.

Humidity and Temperature

To successfully grow Juicy Fruit outdoors, it will need to be in a hot, dry, sunny environment similar to the Mediterranean climate, with an average temperature of around 72 degrees Fahrenheit. To grow Juicy Fruit indoors, you will need to replicate this climate.

Flowering

If you are growing your Juicy fruit plants indoors, they will flower between 50 and 60 days. Outdoor plants will be ready to harvest from late September to early October.
