ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT ZKITTLES CBD, THE NEW JUSTBOB LEGAL MARIJUANA STRAIN.
We at Just bob always love introducing new CBD cannabis strains to our customers, and we often update our catalogue of the best legal weed strains, Indica and Sativa dominant.
Today we want to introduce you to a new variety in our CBD online shop so that, if you wish, you can add it to your collection! Let’s talk about Zkittles CBG, whose name says a lot about the active ingredients it contains.
Zkittles CBG: legal marijuana high in… CBG!
The novelty of the moment, Zkittles CBG, is a product that has percentages of THC according to the law (<0.2%), high CBD content (about 15%) and high percentages of CBG, cannabigerol, which we will tell you about in detail in the course of the article.
The name of this legal cannabis strain contains the acronym CBG precisely because it is very rare for this cannabinoid – not psychotropic – to be present in high quantities in cannabis flowers. It is a peculiarity that must absolutely be made known!
Besides the large percentages of cannabigerol, Zkittles CBG marijuana flowers have the typical shape of Sativa cannabis buds; therefore, they are elongated and airy.
The buds’ colour is a lovely bright green tending, in some cases, to yellowish; the flowers are also studded with pistils that have shades of rust. A thick layer of resin covers the flowers of Zkittles CBG, making the colours even more precise and brilliant, with silvery shades.
The aromas of Zkittles CBG are fresh and reminiscent of pine but also chamomile flowers. Therefore, we can say that the scent of this legal cannabis variety is decidedly spring, with floral and slightly acidic hints.
As we have anticipated, the name of this strain derives from its (unique) high content of cannabigerol, in acronym CBG, of which you can read the details in the following paragraph.

What is cannabigerol, the cannabinoid that gives Zkittles CBG its name?
Although the most famous and most present cannabinoids in cannabis are THC and CBD, one psychotropic and the other mitigating the psychoactive and relaxing effects, another significant cannabinoid is often overlooked.
We are talking about CBG (cannabigerol), a non-psychotropic cannabinoid but extremely sought after by marijuana experts.
This active ingredient is as beneficial as it is difficult to find in cannabis strains, obtainable only through specific genetic manipulations and skilful crosses between selected qualities. It also appears that harvesting at the sixth week of flowering, over a total cycle of 8 weeks, is useful in preserving the strong presence of CBG.
Generally, cannabigerol is present in small quantities in flowers and marijuana plants, so much so that it hardly reaches 1%. Yet Zkittles CBG cannabis has been specially designed to contain very high amounts of this rare active ingredient, so much so that the CBG present in its flowers can even reach a record 15%.
But why is CBG so sought after? It all lies in the benefits of this active ingredient, estimated as much as the benefits of CBD.
CBG benefits: a rare and highly sought-after cannabinoid by marijuana experts.
Cannabigerol (CBG) is a non-psychotropic cannabinoid that acts on our organism exclusively at the physical level. Not surprisingly, it is currently the subject of research by the medical-scientific world as it is a potential therapeutic active ingredient, similar to the more famous cannabidiol (CBD).
Specifically, CBG is being studied for its potential beneficial effects on inflammation, chronic pain and even on the slowing of the proliferation of some types of cancer cells.
Of course, before the research gives a definitive answer in this regard, we cannot consider CBG as an officially therapeutic substance. Yet, numerous studies have shown its potential effectiveness in the following applications:
- Treatment and prevention of glaucoma and Huntington’s disease (a severe genetic neurogenerative disease), due to its vasodilatory and neuroprotective effects.
- Inhibition of tumour growth: precisely, animal studies have yielded excellent results on slowing the reproduction of colorectal carcinoma (CRC) cells.
- Treatment of inflammation (in animal models, CBG was given to calm inflammatory bowel disease).
If you want to learn more, here are the primary sources from which you can draw information on the benefits of CBG: Potential Medical Uses of Cannabigerol: A Brief Overview, Cannabinoids in clinical practice and Beneficial effect of the non-psychotropic plant cannabinoid cannabigerol on experimental inflammatory bowel disease.

It seems that the effects of CBG are mainly given by the interaction of this cannabinoid with the CB1 and CB2 receptors of the human and animal brain, similar to THC and CBD.
Zkittles CBG CBD weed is rich in cannabigerol (CBG), a non-psychotropic cannabinoid that is highly beneficial for our body. Furthermore, you will undoubtedly be pleased that it is produced in Italy, precisely in Tuscany, with organic cultivation techniques.
Each Zkittles CBG cannabis plant is monitored continuously thanks to the Indoor cultivation method, which allows farmers to produce controlled batches, free from defects and developed with the skilful supply of nutrients.
