Fruity Pebbles is marketed as a limited edition strain. The fact that it brings premium effects, of course, is not lost on the users. However, because of limited availability and incredible demand in the market, its seeds are costly with each pack selling between $1,000 to $1,500.

Fruity Pebbles has a solid reputation when it comes to being a very enjoyable strain. It also has a sweet taste that delights anyone even after a few puffs. This plant is a head turner, so don’t mind sharing it with friends or new acquaintances.
