Love Candy is a heavily worked cut of Blockhead from Breeder Steve of Spice of Life. It has been worked to backcross 2 then worked all the way to F3. Love Candy has a very sensual sweet skunk melon flavor and smell.
Outdoor, this is one of those rare varieties that produces light green, trichome covered, large flowers that has an indoor look. In my 20+ years of growing I have only come across a few cultivars that have this look when grown outdoor. It grows short, stout, bushy with large colas. Plants average about 6ft for me when finished. Even with its strong structure the plant still needs support due to the rock hard arm size flowers. In northern California it finishes the first week of October. The only downfall is it will mold if you get early rain or grown in a humid environment.
Indoor Love Candy looks like it has been dipped in trichomes. It can be harvested at 8 weeks of flower but I personally like to let it go to 9 weeks. Greenhouse setting this plant really shines. Doesn’t stay as short and bushy as it does indoors or outdoors. Strong branches with a normal stretch and can easily be passed off as indoor grown.
I asked @breedersteve if it was cool to release the seeds I made from his work. He said as long as I didn’t call it blockhead he was cool…and so Love Candy was born!
It was my main cash cropper outdoors for the first decade of the millennium! Below is the writeup Jason King did in ‘Cannabible VOL 3’ on the Blockhead cut I worked into Love Candy.

Breeder Steve from Spice of Life Seeds cranks out yet another winner, Blockhead. The gorgeous strain was created by crossing a Sweet Tooth male (the same one used to make Sweet Tooth #3: see Cannabible 2, page 111) with a female known only as Product 19. The plant, which when grown indoors can flower as long as nine weeks, puts out massive rock-hard nugs of gorgeous color. The smell is odd but desirable, a stinky sweetness bordering on sour. Two different versions are pictured, one grown outdoors in Northern California and one grown indoors organically.
