As the OG of childhood cereals, Fruity Pebbles finds its adult counterpart in the world of cannabis. Fruity Pebbles OG – sometimes called just Fruity Pebbles or FPOG – is fun, energetic, and invigorating, giving off a strong blend of tropical flavors that can zap you right back to the 90s. This delectable strain breathes new life into a childhood classic and gives it a Sativa-dominant twist that will bring a smile to your face – just like that bowl of cereal used to do.


The child of a triad, Fruit Pebbles takes after three parent strains that fall on completely areas of the spectrum. One pure indica, one pure sativa, and one 50-50 come together to create a truly unique blend of effects and flavors that can take you on a wild, unexpected ride.

Granddaddy Purple

Representing indica, the Granddaddy Purple strain leans heavily towards the calming side, manifesting 90% relaxation benefits that are guaranteed to take you on a trip down the road to full body relief. Combining the flavors of herbs, pepper, and pine all enveloped in a jet fuel undertone, Granddaddy Purple is a little higher in THC, delivering mind-numbing results not for the faint of heart.

Green Ribbon

And in the sativa corner, we’ve got the Green Ribbon cultivar. This strain jabs at the taste buds with a tyrannical citrus taste, serving up an awakening experience that’s sure to bring your body to a whole new energy level. The lively cultivar is a knock-out for those suffering from medical conditions that might take a toll on the mood, uplifting the spirits and giving rise to a grin-y, giggly disposition that will take the blues away.

Tahoe Alien

In the middle ground, we’ve got the Tahoe Alien. Mild and well-balanced, this strain gets its name from the full-body abduction that it causes.


Vibrant and saturated with color, the Fruit Pebbles strain boasts a beautiful rainbow of contrasting hues that give it unprecedented bag appeal. This gorgeous strain uses a pale green foundation, laced with pink, purple, and blue undertones that give it supreme personality and charm.

Throughout the nug, bright orange tendril-like hairs extend across its surface, embracing the leaves and creating stark contrast between the bright lime green backdrop and the sunset yellow pistils. And finally, the strain boasts a thick layer of frosted trichomes, giving it a glazed look that’s truly reminiscent of your favorite cereal snack.

THC Content

With a max THC of 19%, Fruit Pebbles doesn’t joke around when it comes to effects. The robust strain might be light, fruity, and sweet on the outside, but its heavy THC content also mean a full-body buzz that might just take over your system. Leaning on the sativa side 70-30, this energizing strain takes after its Green Ribbon parent, manifesting lively effects that awaken the body and invigorate creativity.

Aroma and Flavor Profile

With an aroma that just begs to be let out of the bag, the Fruity Pebbles fragrance is one that overpowers, wafting through the air and escaping the package before you even crack it open. The tropical scent boasts notes of citrus, berry, and sugar which might make you want to dig in your nozzle. The overpowering aroma is of course highly reminiscent of the cereal to which the strain pays homage.

Taste-wise, you can expect pretty much the same thing. Powerful tropical flavors and fruit berry blends together with the bitter taste of burnt wood. The velvety smooth smoke is easy on the throat and glides with relative ease, allowing an enjoyable experience that’s neither overpowering nor lackluster.

Effects of Fruity Pebbles

As a more energetic strain, Fruity Pebbles won’t lock you to your couch, but will instead bring you to a new sense of productivity, motivation, and creativity, allowing you to get more done and to do it all with a smile on your face and a tune in your head.


It didn’t matter how bad your morning was – waking up to a bowl of Fruity Pebbles always felt like the best way to wash away negativity. And that’s exactly what this cultivar promises. Whether you’re in a low mood or if you’re simply not feeling quite your best, the Fruity Pebbles strain can take away your worries and uplift your spirits for a carefree disposition that won’t be pierced by any inconvenience.


The happy hormones don’t end with an uplifted spirit. Fruity Pebbles can get you giggling like you’re back in elementary school, making the smallest of events seem like the funniest thing you’ve seen since season 3 episode 2 of Friends.


It probably goes without saying, but a bowl of Fruity Pebbles is probably going to make you crave for a bowl of Fruity Pebbles. Make sure you’ve got some food at the ready for when the munchies monster rears its head.

Growing your own strain of Fruity Pebbles is easy-peasy, since the cultivar is one of the least demanding phenotypes you’ll find. Just dump those seeds into some soil, and you can pretty much forget about them for 7 to 9 weeks. Water sparingly and keep them in some nice warm weather to maximize their flavor and effects.


Fruity Pebbles can grow pretty well indoors, as long as you keep them out of the way of humidity. Keep the room warm and limit exposure to moisture to prevent rot and fungal growth.


If you’ve got a patch of dry soil and lots of open space, then you can pretty much sow your seeds and leave them be. If there isn’t enough moisture in the soil, make sure you water your plant every now and then with a spray bottle to keep it nourished enough to thrive.
