The Original Z - The Future Of Zkittlez

May 9, 2024

Mellow Fellow, founded by industry experts with extensive experience in pharmacy and chemistry, has established themselves as a longstanding presence in the cannabinoid space. Known for their dedication to crafting products that resonate deeply with the hemp community, Mellow Fellow has curated a range of cherished offerings. 

Among these, Zkittlez vapes hold a special place, celebrated for their distinct flavors and exceptional quality. Today marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter as Mellow Fellow announces the evolution of “Zkittlez” vapes to "The Original Z”. 

“The Original Z” Genetics & Origins 

The strain behind "The Original Z" was co-created in California by 3rd Gen Family and Terp Hogz. Renowned for its unique terpene profile, it has garnered numerous awards, including first place at the 2015 Cannabis Cup in San Francisco for Best US Hybrid Concentrate. Comprising 60% indica genetics and 40% sativa genetics, its parentage includes Grapefruit.

While Zkittlez vapes weren't born within our labs, they quickly became a beloved part of our product lineup. Originating from a renowned strain, these vapes captured the hearts with their vibrant flavors and smooth experience. The name "Zkittlez" became synonymous with excellence at Mellow Fellow, earning its place as a cornerstone of our offerings.

Strain Flavors & Effects

"The Original Z" has a  sweet and fruity aroma, with grape candy, berries, and tropical notes including fruits like mangoes or pineapples. At its base lie skunky, earthy tones, and even hints of diesel fuel on the exhale. On the palate, it offers a similar experience, with an underlying sweetness lingering after each exhale.


These bright flavors are accompanied by an intense yet calming body high. Known for its euphoric and relaxing properties, "The Original Z" is said to ease stress, anxiety, and depression all while providing an uplifting mood boost. It enhances focus and concentration, making it suitable for tasks requiring mental clarity. Additionally, it may increase appetite and alleviate nausea, offering relief for various medical conditions.

The Need For Change 

While the Zkittlez strain has seen widespread acclaim, concerns have arisen regarding its name association with the popular candy brand. The close similarity in name could lead to confusion, potentially posing a danger to children who may mistake cannabis infused products with the popular candy.

Just as the cannabis strains GG4 and GG5 were formerly and commonly known as "Gorilla Glue" amongst cannabis products,  Mellow Fellow recognized the importance of addressing these concerns proactively. We knew it was time for a change.

By transitioning to "The Original Z," Mellow Fellow not only pays homage to the strain’s origins, but also celebrates its essence and legacy. This represents more than just a name change; it signifies a recommitment to delivering exceptional products that meet the highest standards of quality. 

This shift underscores its commitment to authenticity, aiming to honor the roots of "The Original Z" while propelling it into the future. 

As Mellow Fellow embarks on this journey of evolution, it invites its community to join in celebrating the spirit of originality and the promise of exciting new possibilities that lie ahead.
