The Apple Fritter strain is a Northern California favorite that finished second at the 2016 High Times Northern California Cup.
Sour Apple and Animal Cookies were bred together to create Apple Fritter and it’s often regarded as one of the world’s strongest strains due to a THC content that has been known to exceed 30%.
Is Apple Fritter Sativa or Indica?
Apple Fritter is a hybrid strain that straddles a line between Sativa and Indica. It’s 50/50, and so it offers the best of both worlds. You’ll feel the creative and uplifting effects of the Sativa along with the sedating hit of Indica.
Apple Fritter Cannabinoid and Terpene Content
The average THC levels of Apple Fritter are between 22 and 28%, with many phenotypes hovering around 25%. However, there are some varieties that promise over 30% THC.
You will struggle to find a stronger hybrid!
Limonene is one of the strain’s most dominant terpenes and provides the buds with their distinctive sweetness and sourness.
Is Apple Fritter Strong?
As noted above, Apple Fritter can have over 30% THC, making it an incredibly potent strain. The fact that it’s a 50/50 Indica and Sativa hybrid helps to provide some balance and means you’re not just going to spend the night glued to the couch, but it’s definitely a potent strain and one that inexperienced smokers should stay away from.
Apple Fritter Flavor and Aroma
Apple Fritter is best-known for its potency and not its flavor, but it still makes for a pleasant smoke. Apple Fritter buds have a very earthy and slightly sweet scent, and the flavors expand upon these notes, delivering a hit of sweetness on the inhale and leaving a sourness on the exhale.
It’s not as sweet or delectable as its namesake, but it does have a certain buttery, cheesy quality to it, not unlike a sweet pastry.
What Are the Effects of the Apple Fritter Strain?
Looking for something that will relax you without locking you to the couch? Something that will give you a little creative boost while still serving as the perfect accompaniment to a gaming night or movie marathon? The Apple Fritter strain could be just what you need.
The effects are very balanced. They usually begin in the head and then steadily work their way down, relaxing your body. The onset is rapid and strong, and the effects range from creative and lightly relaxed to happy and sleepy. The exact effects will depend on the dose and your tolerance level, but it’s best to start small, pay attention to how it makes you feel, and then take things from there.
Inexperienced medicinal users may be a little overwhelmed by the strength of Apple Fritter, but if you have some experienced and need a strain that will help you to sleep and kill chronic pain, check it out.
Growing the Apple Fritter Strain
The Apple Fritter flowering period is between 8 and 9 weeks and although it can be grown indoors and outdoors, the best results come with indoor grows. It’s relatively short and stocky (the plants are just 4 feet or so) and indoor growths produce around 14 ounces per square meter.
