Grapefruit, the sativa cannabis strain, emits a smell and taste similar to the name given to it. It’s both sweet and citrusy, with a tropical taste that main claim to enjoy. Its buds are light green in color with amber pistils, neither too dense nor too fluffy.
The parent strains of Grapefruit are Cinderella 99 and an unknown landrace sativa chosen by Nectar Seeds. A breeder named Steve from Spice of Life originally had found the clone, however, and it gained popularity in the 80s.
The THC level of Grapefruit averages at 15% and tops off at 20% in some crops. It’s been described as being a good strain for a wake and bake, often energizing the consumer and leaving them feeling more free to socialize and become more talkative. For some, it’s known to prompt deep thinking and introspection. Many people use this strain to combat mental negativity. Some have noted it can help alleviate headaches and migraines.
Grapefruit tends to flower in a nine to ten week span.
