There’s no waiting for Dragon Fruit to kick in. This strain hits quickly with an intensely cerebral euphoria. The high is stoney but energized, leaving your mind a little hazy and full of the giggles. There’s no doubt when it hits because the euphoria is impossible to ignore. The resulting high is perfect for talking and socializing as long as concentration isn’t necessary.
The body buzz is a perfect complement to the impressive head high. Tingles slowly spread through your body as a mild feeling of relaxation spills through your muscles. It’s just enough of a body buzz to help anchor the truly lifted high, keeping you from floating away. The Dragon Fruit strain effects are also energetic, making this an excellent strain for use all weekend long.
The head high benefits even the darkest of moods. Stress, depression, and anxiety are no match for the happiness Dragon Fruit can provide. Meanwhile, the relaxed, distracted high keeps repetitive thoughts from cycling, leaving pleasant thoughts in their place. It also relieves tense muscles, reduces inflammation, and lowers pain without leaving you stuck to the couch.
Dragon Fruit starts off on the right foot with a fresh and fruity scent that’s nicely balanced by notes of pungent earth. As the bushy nugs burn, the scent gets sweeter, leaning almost into a candy-type smell.
Dragon Fruit weed’s taste is where it’s truly outstanding. Unlike many strains named after a fruit or candy, this strain actually tastes like dragon fruit. There’s a hint of herbal tea on the exhale, but the general essence of dragon fruit is still strong.
Dragon Fruit is a high-powered strain, so it’s important to know your limits before riding this dragon. Beginners and casual smokers should pace themselves because lower tolerances can meet their match in just a puff or two. Even longtime users can meet their match in this strain. Start slowly and work your way up to where you want to be for the best experience. Luckily, for those who overindulge, the most common experience is a hint of the jitters and some mild paranoia. Other than that, the most common side effect to Dragon Fruit is a bit of dry eyes or cottonmouth, which are easily relieved with a glass of water and some eye drops.

Dragon Fruit is a bushy, short plant, making it perfect for growing indoors. It’s still relatively limited to a few breeders, so much of Dragon Fruit strain info is still unknown. However, we do know some of its traits.
This strain leans heavily towards its indica side when it comes to growing. Plants are short and broad, quickly growing multiple colas. This makes them perfect for rooms with low ceilings or low-stress training setups. The plant likes lots of light and moderate temperature and humidity, so growing it outside can be an interesting challenge unless you live in a Mediterranean climate.
As with many bushy plants, you may need to trim the inner and lower leaves of the plant to allow for airflow. This helps the plant avoid problems like powdery mildew or other pests. Lollipopping can be a very effective technique, as well.
In general, Dragon Fruit responds best to low-stress training. High-stress training can increase the time to harvest without significantly increasing the number of colas. Just make sure your plant gets plenty of light, and you’ll reap the rewards.
Indoor grows are an excellent option for Dragon Fruit weed. Expect to harvest after about eight to ten weeks and yields of 12-14 ounces per square yard.
For growers in the northern hemisphere, the harvest is typically ready in October. The Dragon Fruit weed strain will bush out significantly. Expect harvests of 14-16 ounces per plant outside as long as humidity and temperature remain relatively stable.
