Forbidden Fruit Overview
Forbidden Fruit is a hybrid, indica-dominant cannabis strain. Its name is quite fitting as you’ll have a hard time not reaching for this strain as soon as you get a whiff of its sweet aroma. If this grew in the Garden of Eden, we couldn’t blame Adam and Eve for getting kicked out of paradise just to get a taste. Its dense buds produce vibrant hues of purple, orange, and green and carry a THC content ranging from 14% to 26%. Forbidden Fruit is perhaps best known for its delicious tropical flavor. There’s the sweet, musky aroma of flowers and fruits with hints of pine, lemon, and berries. Similarly, the taste has notes of cherry, citrus, grapefruit, mango, pine, and passionfruit. It’s not surprising to hear people say that the Forbidden Fruit strain is their favorite-tasting strain. As for its effects, Forbidden Fruit makes for a relaxing and euphoric high that can relieve pain and leave you couch-locked and ready for sleep.
One of the rising stars of the San Francisco Bay Area, Forbidden Fruit is a relative newcomer. It was bred in 2016 by Chameleon Extracts of Santa Clara, California by crossing two potent, flavourful strains: Cherry Pie and Tangie, giving it a 70/30 indica/sativa lineage. Cherry Pie is a hybrid strain known for its cherry flavor and relaxing, euphoric effects, while Tangie is sativa-dominant with a citrusy flavor and uplifting, energizing effects.
