Overview of Grape Ape

This all-star hybrid blends power pain relief with matching mental relaxation. Grape Ape is an award-winning indica hybrid bred by Washington breeders Apothecary Genetics and Barney's Farm. The strain has won multiple marijuana industry awards since the mid-2000s, including the 2005 and 2006 Green Cup and best concentrate in the 2011 High Times Medical Colorado Cup.

The high is said to be strongly influenced by its indica-dominant genetics. Its average THC content can vary from 16% to 25% THC.

Potential Positive Effects of Grape Ape

Grape Ape is said to start slowly but delivers a heavy dose of total relaxation. The high tends to peak physical relaxation to a slightly stoney and sedated state. The overall effects that you feel from smoking Grape Ape are a relaxing, happy, and yet sleepy high.

Potential Medical Benefits of Grape Ape

Grape Ape easily soothes smokers to sleep and can ease insomnia. Grape Ape can also provide relief from stress, inflammation, nausea, and anxiety. However, a small segment of the population throughout the West Coast enlist Grape Ape to ease chronic pain, insomnia, and depression. The strain's sedative, yet, uplifting high is perfect for soothing oneself to sleep

Potential Negative Effects of Grape Ape

Grape Ape's heaviness can disorient novice and experienced smokers. Users also report occasional cotton mouth and red eyes. Additionally, smokers can expect their high to linger for a couple of hours after smoking Grape Ape.

Lineage of Grape Ape

Apothecary Genetics claims that Grape Ape originates from Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani strains. The heaviness of Aghani, Skunk's sweetness, and the hue of Mendocino Purps are compacted into compact buds. Buds can exhibit a medium-to-heavy coating of resin. When cured properly, Grape Ape's smell sticks like its bud. Fans of the strain have reported sweet smells from grape to caramel to describe the scent

Growing Grape Ape

When grown indoors, it should take Grape Ape seeds seven to eight weeks to flower (49 to 56 days). Plants can yield 350 to 500 grams per square meter. If a grower chooses to grow Grape Ape outdoors, the strain should flower by mid-October. The yield can consist of medium to large flowers; growers normally yield about 2.5 ounces of flower per square foot. However, Grape Ape can bloom as soon as the end of September.

When grown outdoors, the strain can effectively fight off disease and insects. Grape Ape plants exude the indica style of its genetic lineage. The strain's plants are often shorter, bushier and have strong branches extending laterally from the central stem.

Overall, Grape Ape is a slightly difficult strain for beginner growers looking to start out. It's also a harder strain for newer smokers to adjust to.

Where to Find Grape Ape

Grape Ape remains a pot culture staple. Grape Ape is popular throughout the West Coast states like California, Oregon, and Washington.
