Before people even smoke Grape God, they have certain expectations about the strain. These expectations are mostly to do with its taste, scent, appearance, and, of course, its effects.
This is no ordinary strain. This is no surprise as one of its parents, God Bud, was the winner of the High Times Cannabis Cup a few years ago. Grape God is a true purple. It provides a very heavy high due to its strong potency and effects.
How potent the cut depends on your experience, however. When at the low end of the THC range, it may feel soothing and a refreshing high. At its top end, it’s certainly a more hard-hitting strain that is even capable of sedating users.
What Is The Grape God Strain?
The Grape God strain of weed is an Indica-dominant hybrid and a cross between Grapefruit and God Bud. As you can see, some cannabis breeders can be a little lazy when it comes to naming new strains. That being said, its name is more than appropriate.
This strain offers the robust buds of God Bud as well as its purple coloring. Grapefruit’s genetics are also more than evident through its smell and taste.
If you consume a large amount of Grape God, you may find it hard to stay awake but, typically, it will take some time to kick in for you to start feeling the effects. Its high will usually ease in gently and firstly impact your head before making its way through your body.
This will help you unwind and feel totally relaxed. When used in moderate amounts, your mood will improve and it will make you feel happier. A great option if you’re tired in the evening or before attending a social event.
How Was The Grape God Strain Developed?
Grape God originated when God Bud and Grapefruit were combined. This cross between God Bud, an Indica, and Grapefruit, a Sativa are evident in the strain. However, the Sativa genes are dominant but the exact numbers are hard to even estimate.
When you first inhale Grape God, you will be met with an immediate strong grape taste. This hits the palate with force but is still pleasant to experience. Aside from this grape flavor, there are also notes of hash, soil, and citrus.
Its grapefruit and berry flavor often make users feel more invigorated and wanting more. Sweet and earthy is a perfect combination, especially for this potent strain.
Odor And Flavor
As we mentioned, Grape God not only gets its name from its parents but also from its strong yet sweet grape smell with hints of earth. This strain offers a sour grape scent which is often combined with zesty citrus notes.
Its earthy smell reminds users that beneath its fruit facade, there lies a very powerful and potent marijuana plant. We love the sweet and earth combination that envelops you as you smoke it.
