What is the Jilly Bean Weed Strain?
The Jilly Bean weed strain is excellent, ideal for staying calm, happy, and focused. It’s to get things done high. The high begins as a brain buzz, cerebral, euphoric, and conducive to good social energy and creative motivation—and then the indica genes come in on the chorus to bring the mellow body high.
Raging with a color palette straight out of a Renaissance canvas, Jilly Bean is beautiful. Picture if you will, resinous flowers have a frosted, shiny appearance, highlighted by trichome-heavy flecks of green and gold; leaves in hues of green, purple, and burgundy.
Jilly Bean Flavor Profile
The taste and aroma of the Jilly Bean Strain is a delicious combination of a top note of citrus and orange, with other sweet and tropical fruit tones, such as mango, and a gentle tangy taste that comes together to form a deliciously balanced bouquet. Perhaps it’s the power of suggestion. However, it does taste like a fruit jelly bean.

Jilly Bean Strain History & Genetics
Jilly Bean, popularly known as “Jillybean,” is a tasty mix between an Orange Velvet female and a Space Queen male. However, some believe the lineage is a mix between the Space Queen and the Orange Skunk. It is widely assumed that Subcool and MzJill produced and cultivated this juicy variety at the West Coast seed bank TGA Genetics.
Legend has it that the name honors a grower—an artisan, a giant in the field— MzJill. A rival story has Jill of the Bean as a Ganja muse. Either way, it’d make a wicked ballad.
