Strain Information

Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica.           THC: 24%, CBD: 1%, CBN: 1%
If this happy strain evokes images of childhood board games, it’s no accident. It’s mostly sativa, a crossbreed of Granddaddy Purps and Platinum Cookies. Those genes make for an upbeat, stimulating high that spurs creativity and provides energy for daytime tasks. Euphoria is the prominent effect when smoking Candyland, with a strong mood boost and some relaxation. The exact sativa-to-indica ratio of this strain is unclear, but it contains as much as 29% THC, making it a fairly powerful choice. CBD levels are lower but could still be useful in treating seizures and other conditions. Candyland as a strong sweet flavor and smell, with an earthy, spicy undertone. Its appearance is compact and camouflage-colored, with flecks of gold and shimmering trichomes. It’s an ideal strain for treating anxiety and depression, along with bipolar disorder, chronic pain, and ADHD. Dry mouth is a distinct possibility, as are dry eyes and dizziness, while paranoia is less likely. Best for daytime activities, Candyland is a sweet treat any time of day. It’s most popular on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Michigan.

Candyland, a product of the San Francisco Bay Area in California, is a Sativa-dominant strain that was a cross between the infamous Grand Daddy Purple strain (aka Grand Daddy Purps) and a Bay Area Platinum Cookies strain. It was originally bred by Ken Estes who was part of the team that bred the original Grand Daddy Purple.

Candyland buds are small and dense with a slightly darker shade of green than your typical bright green Sativa strain. Its trichomes are plentiful when grown properly, looking as if the bud could have been dipped in sugar. The red hairs are a dull red but run longer than normal, almost making the buds look fuzzy from a distance.

When smoking this strain expect a very earthy flavor with hints of sweets and spices. Its effects lean towards it’s Sativa properties making it a mentally stimulating strain with little to no body effects when smoked in smaller doses. The strain is great for social functions or creative activities – anything where your brain must be active and engaged. When consumed in larger quantities, and especially by novice users, the strain can impact anxiety and paranoia as is typical with strong Sativa strains. You may want to try a hit or two before committing to a full joint.

Candyland is a comparatively easy strain to grow when weighed against other Sativas. It can be grown indoors and outdoors with a flowering period of between 8-9 weeks on an indoor grow and a September harvest for outdoor grows. The weight really piles on towards the end of the growth cycle as the buds begin to weigh down the plant’s rather tall and skinny frame. Yields can reach up to 2.5 ounces per plant indoors with outdoor yields up to 3 pounds per plant.

Candyland was a Gold Medalist in KushCon 2012 in Denver which boasted a record 50,000 attendees for that particular convention.
