About this Hybrid Strain

A gold medalist of the 2012 KushCon in Denver, Candyland is a sativa cannabis strain that interlaces long golden and red pistils through its thick sugar-like glaze of trichomes. Underneath, its leaves are various shades of deep green similar to a camo scheme. Its scent and taste are sweet and spicy, with earthy undertones.

Candyland’s lineage is a cross between the indica Grand Daddy Purple and hybrid Platinum GSC. It first came to life under the care of Ken Estes in the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

The THC content of Candyland averages at 14% and can reach 19%. Reviewers have described its high as mentally stimulating, great for social events or creative activities. This strain works best when the consumer keeps their brain active; consisting thinking and engaged in the outside world.

This strain is known to induce anxiety or paranoia, especially in novice consumers, when one fails to keep their mind engaged and allows thoughts to progress into introspections that can turn negative.

Growers should provide support for this strain’s stems once flowering begins, its buds able to weight down the thin and tall stalks.
