It is easy to become stuck in a rut, always buying the same strains almost as if you are on automatic pilot. There is nothing wrong with knowing exactly what you do and do not like, but sometimes it can be fun to try something new, to experiment with a strain that offers an entirely different experience. Fruit Loops is the perfect strain for such an occasion; with a fruity explosion of flavors and an extremely social high, there are very few strains that come close to the experience of Fruit Loops.
Let’s look in more detail what it is that makes Fruit Loops such a social and exciting strain.
What is the Fruit Loops Cannabis Strain?
Fruit Loops is a fun, fruity strain that lives up to its name and very much matches its breakfast counterpart in terms of its vibe, adding a colorful boost to your day. Being a 55% indica / 45% sativa hybrid, Fruit Loops offers an uplifting and energetic high that almost leaves you mentally feeling as though you are actually swimming in Fruit Loops’ rainbow-colored milk.
Looking closely at Fruit Loops’ lineage, it becomes clear how this bright, fun-filled strain came to be. Fruit Loops is the product of a four-way cross between Blue Dream, White Widow, Grapefruit and Blueberry, a varied mix of strains including two hybrids, an indica, and a sativa, so it is no surprise that this turned out to be such an unusual strain. Combining White Widow’s moderate to intense physical effects with Grapefruit’s mind buzz, Fruit Loops is the perfect social strain that will help you get into the party mood.
As its name would suggest, Fruit Loops has a fruity aroma and flavor profile, mixing Blueberry and Grapefruit together with an extra tropical kick. It is hard not to feel energized with Fruit Loops, even before its thick smoke has managed to touch the back of your throat.
Fruit Loops is a strain that can be enjoyed at any time of day and is ideal for smoking around friends in order to appreciate its full effects. Fruit Loops’ high is a gradual one, starting with a feeling of happiness that causes you to push negative thoughts to one side and focus on the things that make you feel inspired and upbeat. It is common to find yourself lost in your own thoughts, reminiscing through old memories as if they are a stack of childhood photos that you have just found, taking you on a trip down memory lane. This can be a particularly enjoyable experience when you are surrounded by close friends that you have known for a long time and are able to share such memories with.
As the effects of Fruit Loops develop the desire for deep conversation becomes stronger, and you will find yourself easily losing hours as you ponder the wildest of topics in great detail. Fruit Loops is definitely not a strain to take while alone, as you will find yourself becoming locked in your own thoughts, frustrated that you are unable to share the inner workings of your mind.
As you are busy contemplating world issues with your friends or planning your next big group holiday, the physical effects of Fruit Loops begin to take hold. At first, you will notice a light pressure around your eyes that spreads across your face, causing mild tingling sensations. As this feeling moves through your body, you start to feel your limbs melt away as they become almost weightless. Your physical awareness fades as you become caught up in your mind and the conversation around you. This sense of freedom from your own body is a euphoric experience, removing the ability to feel pain and just truly focus on your mental state.
While Fruit Loops is best enjoyed with a close intimate group of friends, it is also a great strain to get you in the party mood. The physical, energizing effects combined with a deep desire to socialize can help to make you the life and soul of the party.
With a name like Fruit Loops, what can you expect in terms of flavor and aroma from this fruity strain?
Fruit Loops’ aroma is everything that you would expect from a strain named after a sugary breakfast cereal. An initial whiff fills your nostrils with a strong burst of grapefruit and blueberries, while further, slower sniffs bring out the tropical undertones that really make the fruity experience complete. Grinding Fruit Loops unlocks a hash aroma that blends with the fruitiness, reminding you of delving into a mixed bag of candies on a hot summer’s day in the park.
When burned, Fruit Loops fills the air with a thick smoke that clouds your vision, bringing out strong topical notes that bring to mind the image of toasting pineapple on a beach BBQ. Upon exhaling, the aroma shifts slightly with subtle spicy notes that blend with the sweet sugary smoke that lingers in the air.
How does Fruit Loops’ flavor profile compare?
Fruit Loops unleashes an instant explosion of flavors in your mouth. With just one short drag you begin to imagine cartoon fruits jumping around on your tongue, filling your taste buds with an extremely sweet, citrus flavor. Taking the time to absorb the flavors and work through the sweet, candy-like mix, you start to unpick the different fruity notes. There is a strong citrus flavor, mixed with berries and an extra coating of sugar, which keeps those with a sweet tooth continuously coming back for more.
Fruit Loops’ smoke is surprisingly thick, leaving you coughing as your taste buds continue to dance to the fruity party that continues within your mouth. Despite the cough-inducing smoke Fruit Loops has a pleasant, if maybe overly sweet, flavor profile which really gets you in the party mood.
Fruit Loops is an eye-catching plant thanks to its intensely colored leaves, with a deep and rich dark green color forming their base that is complemented by purple strands weaving their way across each leaf. Leaves are tightly curled, giving the impression that only half of their beauty is visible to the human eye.
Fruit Loops’ buds are a bright olive green color and are densely packed together, with orange strands that extend beyond the buds. The denseness of the buds forms a spherical shape, which you would typically expect to find on an indica plant rather than a hybrid. Flowers tend to be on the larger side, making them stand out from the rest of the plant. Fruit Loops shows signs of its connection to White Widow in the white, almost glassy trichomes that cover the buds and create an almost sticky texture.
Let’s take a look at how you can grow your own Fruit Loops plant at home.
Fruit Loops Cannabis Strain Grow Info
Fruit Loops is the perfect strain for those new to growing, as there is very little that can actually go wrong during the growing process. You can expect plants to be ready for harvest within 7-10 weeks, with an average yield.
Fruit Loops can be grown both indoors and outside, with plants preferring a semi-humid climate. It is worth noting that in order to bring out the striking purple colors within the leaves, plants need to be exposed to cold temperatures for short periods of time throughout their growth. For those looking to grow outside, the natural drop in temperature that occurs overnight should be enough to trigger this, but be careful because freezing temperatures can actually damage the plant. If you decide to grow indoors, a controlled environment is best as it allows you to alter the temperature and ensure that you get those striking vibrant colors on the plant’s leaves. If you are new to growing and want to avoid potentially freezing your plant to death, the leaf’s coloring is purely cosmetic and failing to achieve such coloring will not impact your enjoyment of Fruit Loops.
It is currently extremely difficult to purchase Fruit Loops seeds online, and as a result, it is recommended that those looking to grow their own plants purchase clipping from healthy, mature plants in order to get started. While it can be fun to grow your own plants from just a tiny seed, especially as a beginner, there are advantages to using clippings, as the plant is genetically identical meaning that you know exactly what to expect.
