Candies are treats that are handed to children as a reward or just something to brighten up the day. On the other hand, being an adult is hard. Some say, “With responsibility comes the daily hassles and stress.” Hence, someone has to do it. Someone has to develop a strain that rewards its users with a pleasing candy-like aroma and uplift the mood.
Grand Daddy Purp’s Breeding and Development Team created Candyland by crossing two well-known strains, Granddaddy Purple and Platinum Girl Scout Cookies. Both are not only highly regarded, but they also offer distinct features that have endeared them to fans of cannabis.
The descendant, Candyland, inherited those traits and as proof of its quality, has won top honor at the 2012 KushCon.
Users can expect a potent and energizing cerebral experience that few others can deliver with this strain.

Odor and Flavors
The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of its fragrance is always correct. True to its suggestive name, it has a candy-like quality that for ages has pleased the senses. Its herbal and earthy scent mixed with a piney note has been a delight. Equally pleasant is the lingering taste of berry that lingers in the mouth after exhalation.
One is up for a celebration with this sweet treat. Sugar gives people energy and this strain does just that. It begins with a quick onset of mental euphoric high that is accompanied by a reinvigorating feeling. Besides feeling uplifted and cheerful, it also keeps people motivated and on the go.
For many people, it serves as an excellent wake-and-bake strain. Freeing the mind of cobwebs is instantaneous. In many ways, it is the souped-up version of drinking espresso in the morning.
As the Indica traits start to creep into the body, a gentle relaxation washes over. It does not cause people to feel lazy. Rather, it just makes the experience so much the better.
Even if Candyland tastes like something that can do no harm, it comes with adverse reactions too. Those who have minimal knowledge about smoking strains should know that it is usual for one to experience dryness of mouth and eyes.
Other than that, using too much or just by having a low tolerance level may cause one to feel these effects as well. Aside from the most common reactions, it might be a little too intense which leads to mild dizziness or having a headache. It is also possible that a few people may feel a bit anxious.
Such conditions are not at all harmful. Even so, be sure to use in moderation and never to exceed one’s own capacity.
Medical Use and Benefits
For most people, the medical benefits of cannabis are synonymous with CBD. Compared to most others, it appears to have a higher amount. However, it is still too low to even be beneficial as a treatment for epilepsy. Nonetheless, it brings on other pharmacological values.
Being able to enhance the mood of users as well as bring on a euphoric rush, some people use it as a stress-reliever. Others, in particular, those going through depression use it to be upbeat instead of feeling glum.
As it stimulates the senses, it also reinvigorates the body. Hence, some people have taken to using it to fight off fatigue.
Finally, it has anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe aching muscle or cramps. Typical of many hybrids, Candyland can help bring relief for mild pains.
There is a reason to rejoice in Candyland. The plant is not at all challenging to cultivate. Furthermore, it has a quick flowering time. Also, it does produce a high amount of buds. However, because of the weight of the buds, growers will want to support its stems or branches.
When grown indoors, flowering time is between 8 to 9 weeks. Growers can expect a generous amount of yield as it can be as much as 800 grams per square meter.
For those who have the luxury to grow outdoors, Candyland thrives well in a dry and warm climate. Harvest is ready by early October or can be as early as the last week of September. Each plant can produce up to 900 grams per plant.
