Grape God boasts tapered flowers that adhere in large single pieces. The buds have a dense indica-like structure, with tightly curled leaves. Grape God packs the unmistakable scent of grape — although an underlying sweetness makes the flowers smell more like grape gummy candy than actual grapes. On second inspection, there are also some funky notes of damp earth. The absence of skunky or acrid flavors in this strain makes for a smooth, easy smoke that tastes dank on the exhale.
Notably, there is no correspondence between Grape God’s purple color and its grape-like taste: while the color is dictated by pigments, different compounds called terpenes determine the taste.
Effects start in the head, with a gradual heaviness that moves down through the neck to the shoulders and limbs. This “stoney” feeling is soon accompanied by a wave of relaxation that helps put users at ease. Provided that they feel safe and are planted in the right set and setting, users may then feel tensions and worries evaporating under Grape God’s indica influence. This strain does not impair cognition as heavily as some more pure indicas, but users may not feel motivated to work on detailed tasks, even if they can maintain focus. Medically speaking, Grape God’s relaxing properties make it very useful to a variety of patients. It can soothe pain resulting from injuries or from chronic conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia. Its pleasant emotional buzz can blunt the harsh symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, and even PTSD. This strain can also be a powerful appetite stimulant. Because of the relative lack of intense cerebral effects, Grape God also comes with a lessened risk of paranoia. The high can last longer than average, even for more experienced consumers.
More of an evening or nighttime strain than a wake and bake booster, Grape God is a go-to for relaxation and relief.
This strain’s memorable smell and taste practically beg to be taken out in public, though.
Grape God’s aroma will turn heads in social settings and, if shared, is sure to gain the gratitude of a few people.
