Grape Ape is the ideal choice for those seeking a high-quality, memorable, indica with some impressive genetics, a supreme terpene profile that translates into bags of taste, and an all-round top-notch smoking experience.
The brilliant crossing of three incredible strains, Mendocino Purps, Skunk #1 and Afghani, resulted in this popular indica-dominant (90% indica) strain, Grape Ape. This Californian Purple strain has gained quite the following as it has shown itself to be something of a champion hybrid with some legendary genetics. It is now favored by cannasseurs and commercial croppers alike, as it offers up an incredibly complex terpene profile, beautiful plants to look at, a mouth-watering aroma and taste, and some supreme effects due to its THC content of around 16-23%.
A somewhat moderate strain to grow, Grape Ape produces plants that are relatively resistant to mold and pests but produces the best results when in the hands of a grower who has had a little experience. It can be grown in any environment, delivering stunning results with some proper care. Indoors, the flowering time is around 7-8 weeks and yields are a generous 400-500g/m2. Outdoors, the plants are ready to harvest late September/early October, with bumper yields of around 750-800g/plant.
This is one beautiful plant and growers delight in seeing her develop. It has a classic indica shape: bushy plants, with many sturdy lateral branches coming off the central cola. It reaches a maximum height of around 4 foot. You can expect to be wowed with some large dense purple buds, copper pistils, and tightly curled deep green leaves, covered in sticky crystals – there’s some serious bag appeal with this beauty.
The smoking experience of Grape Ape impeccable, with aromas and taste of grapes and bubblegum that have a skunky, diesel edge. The high comes on pretty slowly, growing into a relaxing, weighty effect that can possibly end in a touch of couch-lock. As it can be a bit of a creeper, caution is advised. Grape Ape is a perfect choice for a nighttime smoke as it will relax your body and mind, giving a long-lasting sense of relief that makes it attractive to medical users.
