Forbidden Fruit Hemp Strain Review

Wander into the Garden of Eden and indulge in its earthly delights. Let the serpent tempt you with a hit of the Forbidden Fruit Hemp Strain, and you will never want to leave. In the early stories, they do not tell us which fruit tempted Eve so much.

While many people talk about apples, we want to believe in another kind of Forbidden Fruit. This sinfully delicious strain will burst your senses with its colorful nuggets, sweet smell, fruity flavor, and relaxing high. The Forbidden Fruit hemp strain is a 70/30 dominant Indica that sports a CBD content of 17%. The high CBD content will have powerful yet soothing effects on you, uplifting your spirit.


The dense, heavy nuggets of the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain will greet you with a bright lime green color streaked with orange and yellow tendrils, glistening with trichomes that will make you think of drops of morning dew over freshly picked produce.

Close your eyes and take a whiff. Forbidden Fruit’s aroma will transport you to a tropical garden full of sweet, ripe fruits, ready to be bitten. Let your mind wander over the refreshing citrus and the sweet berries that will make your mouth water while expecting a tempting savory treat.

Take a bud between your fingers and feel the stickiness of the trichomes that cover it. Open it and hear the resin cracking between the multicolored flower leaves, where you will find streaks of pink, orange, and the occasional purple.


Besides cannabis, many plants secrete these aromatic oils to repel predators and attract pollinators. Cannabis strains can develop up to a hundred different terpenes, which give weed varieties their characteristic smell and taste. When we consume weed, the terpenes in that particular variety will also have distinctive effects on us, ranging from relaxing to focusing.

Many terpenes have medicinal properties, making hemp strains a new and exciting part of the health industry. The dominant terpenes we will find in the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain are myrcene, limonene, and caryophyllene.

  • Myrcene: it is the most common terpene found in cannabis. We can also find it in mango and lemongrass. Myrcene gives an earthy, fruity, clove-like aroma and is responsible for the overall relaxing effects of the strains that contain it. Additionally, it also activates cannabinoid absorption in the brain.
  • Limonene: the name and the aroma of this terpene make us think of citrus fruits. And we are right. We can find limonene in orange and lemon rinds, from where it uplifts our spirits. Limonene appears as a frequent additive in cosmetics and cleaning products, acting as an anti-fungal and antibacterial agent. Strains with a high limonene content are the best for reducing stress and anxiety levels.
  • Caryophyllene: this is the only terpene that also acts as a cannabinoid, activating our endocannabinoid system. We find caryophyllene in cloves, black pepper, cinnamon, basil, and rosemary. The cannabinoid action of caryophyllene gives it analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Forbidden Fruit Hemp Strain Effects

When you take your first hit of Forbidden Fruit and step into the Garden of Eden, the sweet taste of fruit dipped in honey will flood your mouth. Like a well-balanced fruit salad, the citrusy notes and sugary dough will play with the refreshing earthy aromas and slide smoothly down your throat. Fear no cough since the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain is gentle and will taste even better on the way out.

The Forbidden Fruit hemp strain effects build slowly yet constantly. Intense and long-lasting like the tempting serpent, a blissful sensation will slither down your neck, coil around your limbs, and bless you with an uplifting, calm collectedness while clearing your mind for a meditative state.

The long, happy, and enlightening high of Forbidden Fruit will boost your focus and allow you to brainstorm at your daily activities to develop new, creative and refreshing ideas.

We recommend Forbidden Fruit for the afternoons or evenings when you want a fun, creative session followed by a happy, euphoric sprawl over your couch and end your smoking day in a deep, peaceful slumber.

Health Benefits

The medicinal properties of the terpenes inside the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain are helpful for patients with sleep conditions, like insomnia or problems with falling asleep. Forbidden Fruit can benefit patients with chronic pain or headaches. It can also be part of the treatment for anxiety or depression.

Side Effects

As it happens with any medication or cannabis strains, the Forbidden Fruit Hemp Strain has a few mild side effects. You can get eye and mouth dryness from smoking it, so be sure to have plenty of water accessible in your corner of paradise.

Forbidden Fruit Hemp Strain Genetics

Contrary to the biblical forbidden fruit, this sinful delight did not come to be fully formed and ready to tempt us. The Forbidden Fruit hemp strain results from the crossing of Tangie and Cherry PIe, two sweet, aromatic strains that bestow their best qualities on our fruity blessing.


Tangie is a sativa dominant strain, proud heir to the famous Tangerine Dream. This bud inherits to Forbidden Fruit its citrusy aroma, refreshing taste, and uplifting effects. Its high CBD content gives productive effects that make it a favorite to smoke before work.

The sweet name of Cherry Pie comes from its berry flavor, with traces of mango and dough. This indica-based strain comes from the mix of Durban Poison and Granddaddy Purple, and it takes from them its deep relaxing properties, positive vibes, and lucid high.

Growth Information

The Forbidden Fruit hemp strain grows without many troubles indoors or outdoors, especially if you plant it in a sunny Mediterranean area. It is very resistant to mold, mildew, and pests, making it a cultivar of choice among beginner growers. It will give a pungent stinky smell during its flowering time, so we recommend keeping your filters up to date if you are growing Forbidden Fruit indoors.

It is not common for the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain to develop purple leaves in its buds. However, you can stimulate the inheritance from its grandpa Granddaddy Purple by giving it a few chilly nights while flowering.

We recommend this only if you have hemp growing experience and take every necessary precaution. We also advise you to trim the top of the plants before flowering. The Forbidden Fruit hemp strain is particularly bushy. This trimming, called topping, prevents the leaves on the top from blocking the light of the buds growing below them.

Flowering Time

  • 10 weeks


  • Indoors: 4 ounces per foot.
  • Outdoors: 3 ounces per square foot of land.


The new popularity of the Forbidden Fruit hemp strain has many cultivators straining to develop high-quality feminized seeds. Depending on your geographical location, you can acquire seed packets from CropKing, Growers Choice, Discreet, or Gelato. Let an angel give you light with a flaming sword, and the serpent cuddle you in the sweet, fruity coils of Forbidden Fruit. A little bit of sinful delight might be just what you need to uplift your day.
