Grape Ape is a mostly indica crossbreed of Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and original Afghani. It shares their potency, with THC levels as high as 18-21%, which makes it a relatively strong – but not overpowering – tool for treating disease. As its name suggests, Grape Ape tastes and smells like sweet grapes, with a subtle berry flavor.
We can alson say Grape Ape is an indica dominant hybrid feminized cannabis strain with high THC levels and faster flowering time. Grape Ape is a combination of a fierce Afghani, a delicious Mendocino Purps, and a classic Skunk . This hybrid is also a feminized strain, which means that all the plants you will grow are all females.
Grape Ape is a very small plant at only 80 cm but can produce more than 500 grams of usable weed per plant. Because of its size, it is vulnerable to mold and mildew, and thus it has to be cared for indoors or inside a greenhouse. Grape Ape flowers in 6 to 8 weeks and needs a temperate or sunny climate to grow.
Grape Ape is a strain with a high 20% CBD and 0.4% CBD. The buds will be ready for harvest in October with flavors like spicy, tropical, sweet, grape, and berry flavors.
Effects and Medical Benefits of Grape Ape Cannabis
Grape Ape has a high that mounts slowly, eventually leading to a very weighty sensation in the head and limbs. Because of its slow onset, those enjoying Grape Ape should consume cautiously, keeping in mind that a little of this strain can go a long way. In ideal conditions, Grape Ape provides a palpable sense of both mental and physical relaxation, easing users into a spacey calmness. Rather than stimulating rapid-fire thoughts, Grape Ape offers a full body stone. Like the similarly simian-named hybrid Gorilla Glue, Grape Ape may leave you feeling like a clumsy, sleepy primate.
Its indica strength makes Grape Ape a helpful strain for those suffering from nagging pain, whether due to temporary aches or more chronic conditions like fibromyalgia. It can also soothe sore muscles after strenuous exercise. Mentally, Grape Ape can melt stress and anxiety with the force of its foggy high.

Grape Ape Aroma, Flavor, and Appearance
If there is one thing that can indeed be said about this flower without question, it’s that it is visually striking in every way. Although Grape Ape won’t typically grow very high, its large buds and distinctive appearance make it a favorite amongst growers and enthusiasts.
The dense buds of Grape Ape are shrouded in deep purple leaves, which darken as the flower matures. With a generous, moderate to high helping of trichomes, this is a reasonably sticky plant and gives off a potent fruity aroma.
One thing we love about Grape Ape is the enticing smell that resembles candy and berries. You will adore it if you like sweet strains. Those with a nose accustomed to cannabis should also get whiffs of skunk and hash, but the overpowering taste when you inhale will be grape.
With an almost sickly sweet flavor, you won’t need much to feel satisfied. This is great because a little of Grape Ape can go a long way when it comes to its high, too!
Possible Side Effects of Grape Ape
As we said before, Grape Ape in heavy doses can lead to disorientation. As is the case with most strains, we don’t advise consuming too much and would suggest newbies take extra care with dosing.
Like with many cannabis strains, Grape Ape is likely to give you a dry mouth and red eyes, which you can help by having a drink at hand. Regularly removing yourself from a smokey space is another way to combat this irritating side effect.
