First time trying Grape ape, read this full review
Breeders are always taking a risk when they elect to add the word ‘grape’ to the weed they hope will take over the world. Immediately, experienced tokers have certain expectations regarding the scent, taste, appearance, and effects. If the weed doesn’t have a strong grape-like smell and taste, lacks noticeable purple streaks, and fails to have a potent effect, it will be considered a failure.
This is what faced the Grape God strain, but as you will see, it breezes through all examinations.
What is the Grape God Strain?
Grape God strain weed is an indica-dominant hybrid and a cross of Grapefruit and God Bud. Sometimes, breeders are guilty of being lazy with strain names, but in the case of Grape God, it is appropriate. It offers God Bud’s robust buds and purple coloring, while its Grapefruit genetics are clearly seen in the smell and taste areas.
This is no ordinary strain, as you would expect when one of its parents is a High Times Cannabis Cup winner (God Bud). Grape God is also a true ‘purple’ insofar as it provides a heavy high due to its potency and indica effects.
One of the reasons why the Grape God marijuana strain gets its name is because of the sour grape scent combined with zesty citrus notes. The earthy smell you get is a reminder that beneath the fruity façade lies a powerful marijuana plant. This sweet and earthy combination envelops the user and ensures that you crave Grape God from the moment you first smell it.
It should go without saying that a strong grape taste hits your palate, but there are also notes of soil, hash, and citrus. The grapefruit and berry taste often make users feel invigorated.
As one would expect, Grape God has dark and dense nugs with a dark green shade, and purple packed into the calyxes. Growers find that the buds can be short and round or long and narrow, with orange pistils clearly noticeable during flowering.
Grape God Strain Grow Info
When you purchase Grape God strain seeds, you’ll find that it is fairly easy to grow. It is generally a low-maintenance plant that thrives in a healthy environment with a conscientious grower. Make sure you provide it with plenty of nutrients because it is a hungry plant, and if growing outdoors, it is best if your climate is warm and dry.
When grown outdoors, this strain is ready for harvest by the end of September or early October and can yield up to 21 ounces per plant, although most growers report receiving much less. It is the same story when it is grown indoors. Its flowering time is 8-9 weeks, and it could yield a maximum of 18 ounces.
Grape God is definitely a strain worth growing if you are a purp lover, because it is extremely dense, purple and dark, offers a sweet flavor, and is capable of knocking you out. However, the yield is far lower than many growers anticipate. For instance, you will do well to yield more than 16 ounces per 1,000-Watt light.
Some growers say that Grape God is extremely frustrating because it doesn’t respond well to topping during the vegetative stage. On the plus side, the potency and flavor make it worthwhile if you want an aesthetically pleasing marijuana strain with a KO punch.
If you are hoping for a higher yield, you’ll need to feed Grape God regularly. One excellent tip is to add compost tea if you are using soil as the growing medium. The nutrients and microorganisms help improve the immune system of the plants and reduce the risk of diseases such as powdery mildew which can hurt your yield.
Ideally, you’ll use compost tea that includes worm castings, bat guano, kelp, molasses, and fish hydrolysate. Whatever combination you add, make sure you allow the compost tea to brew for between 24 and 36 hours. If you go beyond 36 hours, there is a danger that the microorganisms will die. After the tea has been brewed, apply it to your crops at the earliest opportunity.
THC Content – Highest Test
There is a major difference in the potential strength of Grape God. You can find versions with a THC of 14-16%, but we have heard that some growers have tested their Grape God crop and found a THC content of up to 25%.
CBD Content – Highest Test
Grape God’s CBD content can reach 1%. As a result, the THC to CBD content can be as low as 14:1.
What Can I Expect When I Use Grape God Weed?
A lot depends on how potent the strain is. At 16% THC or thereabouts, it is likely to provide you with a soothing and invigorating high. At 25% THC, it will be a more hard-hitting strain capable of sedating you and even sending you to sleep when you use large amounts. Typically, it will take some time for the high to take effect.
The high will ease in and impact your head at first. Soon, it makes its way through the body, causing you to unwind and feel extremely relaxed. When used in sensible amounts, you’ll find that Grape God improves your mood and makes you feel happier. It is a good option if you are feeling worn out in the evening or else you need to make an appearance at a social event.
As long as you don’t use too much, Grape God will keep you in a good mood for hours. On occasion, it may also improve your creativity.
Medical Benefits of Grape God Marijuana
There are numerous medical benefits to this sweet and delicious marijuana strain. If you find a strong version, it can help you sleep which makes it a viable option for insomniacs. As it may have a sedative effect on the muscles and joints, it is suitable for patients suffering from chronic pain and muscle spasms.
Grape God is often used by individuals suffering from chronic stress because of its ability to soothe and calm the nerves. Given its potential for improving your mood, Grape God also seems like an obvious choice for people with depression or a social anxiety disorder.
Overall, Grape God is an excellent marijuana strain for use in the afternoon. We recommend using it when you don’t have much to do in the way of chores or work-related tasks because it can make it hard to focus. Aside from using flower, you also have the option of Grape God wax or shatter, not to mention special vape pens with Grape God cannabis oil already inside.
Possible Side Effects of Grape God Weed
Certain cuts of Grape God are extremely potent, so there is a possibility of side effects such as dehydration, dry mouth, and itchy eyes. If you overindulge, you might feel tired and dizzy although it usually doesn’t affect users for long. As one might expect from an extremely powerful marijuana strain, there is a slight risk of feeling paranoid or anxious if you consume too much.
Final Thoughts on Grape God Cannabis
Grape God marijuana really took off when it was first released, and it remains a favorite of growers who love purple genetics. It is not the best strain to grow if you are seeking a massive yield, and it requires lots of feeding, but overall, it doesn’t provide much of a challenge for experienced growers and is a useful first-time crop for novices.
As for its effects, it is important to respect the potential potency of Grape God. It is certainly a strain best suited to days off because of its sedative effects. It offers a wonderful aroma, followed by a gorgeous taste, and aesthetically, it is a marvel; just don’t use too much of it in one session!
