Grape Ape is a mostly indica strain usually preferred by many for the carefree relaxation it gives. It can aid in soothing pain, stress, and anxiety. It is a cross between Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani. They even say that it could possibly be a sister phenotype of Granddaddy Purple. It is grown by Apothecary Genetics and Barney’s Farm. The name is because of its aroma that’s distinctly grape-like. It reaches full growth after 7 to 8 weeks of flowering. Grape Ape has dense and compact buds with deep purple leaves that darken during its maturation. The THC level of this indica measures from 15% to 25%.
What differentiates it from other usually heavy-feeling Purple families is that the Grape Ape has narcotic effects but still leaves the user with a relatively clear head. This is also the reason why it can be a good choice for daytime use. They even say that some additional Sativa influence can be seen in the Grape Ape that does not exist in Granddaddy Purple, Mendocino Purps, and other Purple Indica varieties.
The initial effects are strong and heady, noticeable in the eye and face, accompanied by a body buzz that lasts for 30 to 45 minutes. It is certainly relaxing while also elevating the mood and occasionally gives a slight energy boost more out of the good feeling it gives the user. The more indica effects eventually become dominant, putting the user in a sedated and meditative state. Anyone who tries this indica will experience muscle relaxation, pain relief, improvement in the mood, and increased appetite.
Grape Ape is a potent indica strain, and users are advised to use it in moderation because, with just a small amount, one can already enjoy its wonderful effects. For recreational use, Grape Ape can definitely be your after-dark strain. It is perfect for getting full body and mind relaxation and inducing sleep. Some say they are even able to stay sociable even with the effects of this strain. Therefore, with Grape Ape, you can really enjoy a night with a couple of friends, make some food trip, and relax activities like watching a movie or a game of poker. Still, this can also be your whole day smoke for when you want to binge-watch on some shows and have no other plans.
There are still a few people who feel that Grape Ape is able to inspire creativity in them and make them want to do things. This must be a result of more from the uplifting effect that this strain can give. That’s definitely a bonus if you get to experience the same.
