Hybrid – 50% Sativa /50% Indica
THC: 18% – 22%, CBD: 1%
Space Candy is an evenly balanced hybrid (50% indica/50% sativa) strain created through a cross of the classic Space Queen X Cotton Candy strains. This bud might be hard to come by if you live anywhere past Colorado, but is definitely a great choice for any user who loves a sweet tasting smoke and well balanced effects. Like the name suggests, Space Candy has an out of this world taste of sweet apple candy with hints of cherry and fruity berries upon each smooth exhale. The aroma is a little different, with an earthy overtone that’s accented by sweet fruits and a touch of nuttiness. Space Candy buds have small and piecey light forest green nugs with bright orange hairs and a sticky coating of resin topped with oversized chunky amber trichomes. The Space Candy high is definitely one to remember, with an uplifted nature that’s perfect for getting you in the mood for social situations that may otherwise be stressful. You’ll feel happy and motivated with a talkative tendency that can escalate and leave you super giggly and bound to fits of uncontrollable laughter. Because of these effects and its high 18-22% THC level, Space Candy is said to be perfect for treating conditions such as seizures, nausea, depression, and chronic stress.
Space Candy is a super social high and will have you feeling upbeat and chatty after just a couple of rounds. If you yearn for a bud that is happy by nature with really balanced body relaxation, you’ve come to the right corner of the universe. This one hits you with an onset of euphoria that eventually melts into long giggle fits and, on occasion, the deep desire to create. If you happen to be one that becomes very motivated when high, this is exactly the strain that’s going to tip you into artist mode.
For medicinal uses, Space Candy can be applied to a slew of ailments that range from chronic pain to mental illness. In the case of chronic pain, you’ll want to dose in the mid-range. Too much and you run the risk of increased anxiety, too little and you may not feel any relief. Mood disorders and other mental illnesses such as depression, stress, bipolar, and mild cases of restlessness can benefit greatly from a toke of this flower. Strangely, this strain is also good for two opposing afflictions: insomnia and fatigue. Because of its energetic effects you’ll find relief from fatigue fairly simply. Conversely, if you are particularly sensitive to hard crashes or even mild physical sedation when you smoke, this one will put you fast asleep.
If you loved this strain before you’ll definitely want to marry Space Candy once you’ve heard how easy it is to grow. From the breeders’ mouths themselves, SC is “a breeze to grow. With amazing hybrid vigor it starts and just keeps on going and going.” You’ll want to be mindful of topping as this one has a tendency to tip. Indoor and outdoor growth is fine, however indoor systems are the preferred method.
You can definitely smoke this “out of this world” bud at any time of the day, but we definitely see it being something you hit before dinner for maximum enjoyment. Bring it to your next bbq or get together and be the talk of the town.
As the name implies, Space Candy has a deliciously sweet flavor. Some say it resembles candied apples or sweet cherries, offset by blander earthy notes.
After first getting a whiff of Space Candy, you will notice its fruity and berry scents. You can also detect sweet apple and nutty notes in this strain’s aroma.
There is plenty of sweetness in Space Candy’s unique flavor profile. There is a slightly sticky taste of cotton candy, which makes a lot of sense, given its parentage. Many of the notes in Space Candy’s fragrance are present in its flavor. Sweet apple, cherry, and berry flavors combine with citrus, nutty and earthy notes in this taste sensation.
The bud of the Space Candy strain is quite distinctive, being relatively compact and very tightly wound together. Chunky, thick orange hairs and a creamy gloss of trichomes give this plant a colorful sheen.
Space Candy Strain Grow Info
As previously mentioned, this strain is hard to find outside of Colorado. However, you should be able to track some Space Candy seeds online. Please note that Space Candy breeders TGA Subcool Seeds sell this strain’s seeds in regular form. One downside is that it can lengthen the growing process as you will likely end up with half of your crop being males.
To produce a more significant number of calyx-filled plants, you need to utilize pre-germination methods such as soaking. You can also use low-stress training techniques during the vegetative stage to prevent females from becoming hermaphrodites.
The good news is that once these obstacles are overcome, the rest of the growing process is relatively straightforward. Space Candy plants are pretty hardy, and their stalks and branches can withstand gusts of wind when grown outside. These plants aren’t adversely affected by high humidity levels or even garden pests, either.
Given Space Candy’s branchy structure and fast expansion, growers should use either the Sea of Green or Screen of Green method. To bring out Space Candy’s unique terpene profile, opt for an organic soil grow medium. Indoor growers will need to ensure adequate ventilation as these plants have quite an intense fragrance, particularly in the flowering phase.
Space Candy’s indoor flowering period is around the 8-9 week mark. These plants typically produce 12-14 ounces of bud per square meter indoors. Outdoor growers can expect this plant to be ready for harvesting around the second or third week of October. You are looking at a return of at least 14 ounces per plant for an outdoor grow.

Medical Benefits of the Space Candy Strain
One of the main reasons why cannabis lovers use Space Candy is for its uplifting and relaxing effects. Some say that the uplifting and euphoric feeling this strain instills offers them temporary relief from mood disorders like depression and anxiety.
Space Candy’s deeply relaxing physical effects may help some suffering from a variety of painful conditions. While this strain can help to boost your mood, it likely won’t increase your energy levels. Therefore it offers little in the way of benefit to sufferers of chronic fatigue.
