Apple Fritter Strain — Sweet like Sugar

apple fritter strain

The Apple Fritter Strain is delicious and fruity like the taste of Apple Fritter, a perfectly balanced 50% indica and 50% sativa strain. It’s known for a potent and long-lasting high that will offer a mixture of effects. Your mind will be active, but the Apple Fritter weed strain will relax your body as well. This hybrid is a hard hitter, so novice smokers should toke in moderation. While there have been many other fruit-flavored strains featuring blueberry, strawberry, and even pineapple, this is one of the few varieties to capture a true apple flavor. Break it out to celebrate when fall rolls around or anytime of the year if you’re craving a trip to the orchard. Thanks to its growing popularity, maybe one day autumn will be Apple Fritter season rather than the time for pumpkin spice.

Apple Fritter Flavor Scale

Fresh from the deep fryer, Apple Fritter teases the tastebuds with hints of buttery pastry with toasted notes for depth and caramelization. There’s even a light cheesiness that is reminiscent of cheese danish, not to mention the taste of apples covered in melted butter and brown sugar. You’ll think you’ve been transported to the bakery each time you light up some of this powerful strain. Apple Fritter strain has similar flavors to the fruity pastry.

Apple Fritter Strain Information

Shrouded with some mystery, the Apple Fritter strain has nonetheless earned a good reputation across the West Coast. Hailing from Northern California, Apple Fritter is yet another fun variety to come out of wine country. 

Yet the breeder remains unknown. What is known is that Sour Apple and Animal Cookies are the two main parents of this hybrid. Some say that Lumpy’s Flowers is responsible for the cross. It is a strain shrouded in mystery, but it’s believed to have started showing up on the market in 2013. It’s less well-known in the East. Yet it is gaining popularity there as well. 

The THC content varies but can run as high as 28% on average. Few strains produce as much tingling and other body effects as this one. It can be a little intimidating if you’re not prepared for it, but medical marijuana patients who need pain and cramp relief swear by Apple Fritter. Other smokers choose it for flavor alone since the apple taste is somewhat unique among sweet strains.

In terms of effects, the calming yet stimulating results are reminiscent of the Mint Chocolate Chip strain. Yet it can be even stronger than many other popular strains, so use it with caution until you know your tolerance for it. The buds are dense and tightly packed, with a light color thanks to the thick layer of frosty trichomes.

The fritter strain is known for having one of the most substantial highs out there. This strain is full of flavor.

Dr Zoffer


Apple Fritter was created by Lumpy Farms .. I would mot advise anyone to consume Apple fritter and Alcohol unless you desire your experience being spent horizontal with a barf bag. Don't consume apple fritter if your under the influence of Alcohol.. I have seen it drop people that have had only 2 drinks. Mixing cannabis and alcohol is never a good idea it can render people totally helpless and incoherent. PTFO.. BEING GOOD STEWARDS OF THE GENUS WE SHOULD NEVER OFFER OPINION OR ADVICE THAT IF ACTED UPON COULD HAVE ILL EFFECTS UPON OTHERS. Respectfully Dr.Zoffer
