Buy Grape Ape, propagated by Apothecary Genetics and Barney’s Farm, is a mostly indica strain that crosses Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and Afghani. Named for its distinct grape-like smell, this indica is known for providing carefree relaxation that can help soothe pain, stress, and anxiety.

Its dense, compact buds are wreathed in deep purple leaves which darken as this indica reaches full maturation following its 7 to 8 week flowering time.

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.

Like its Purple ancestors, this strain develops a deep purple bud and leaves to go with its grape-like qualities. It’s most useful in treating chronic pain, including migraines and arthritis, though it also helps relieve anxiety, depression, and PTSD. The high is profoundly relaxing, a full-body experience that can lead to strong couch-lock and deep sleep.

This is definitely a nighttime strain, as it can have a near-comatose effect. But the high can also be euphoric and focused, with a clear mind.

Dry mouth is common, as are red eyes. Most easily found on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Michigan, this popular strain can also be purchased across the country, on both legal and black markets. It’s a relatively easy strain to grow.

There are a couple of different phenotypes of Grape Ape in existence — it’s unclear if some are S1 versions or simply mislabeled, but some phenotypes are completely purple and others (more commonly) are a mottled green and purple.

The entirely purple phenotype is often referred to as “True Grape Ape”, but both share a similar structure and deep orange pistil color. Grape Ape has rather large calyxes with moderate to high trichome coverage — it’s not quite as frosty as its possible cousin GDP, but most people enjoy the flavor more. The leaves are medium-wide and often turn from deep green to purple as flowering progresses.

Grape Ape has a sweet but still musky scent which has strong notes of grape Kool-Aid with background hints of nag champa incense.  From a distance or through a bag, it often has a skunky element to it, but the sweetness and grape qualities really come out once its broken apart.
A fairly direct translation of the aroma, the flavor is the same mix of grape sweetness and musky incense notes, offering both a fairly strong initial flavor and a lingering aftertaste. The smoke is normally thick and can often hit the throat somewhat hard like many Purple strains.
Grape Ape starts off rather strongly, with a package of eye and facial effects which signal the start of a rather potent experience.
The early heady effects blend with a creeping body buzzing into a harmonious whole by 30-45 minutes, making Grape Ape feel like a true hybrid for the most part. It’s a strain which is definitely relaxing but also uplifts the mood and at times provides a slight burst of energy to start, simply because it makes the user feel good.
As it progresses though, the more Indica side of the effects dominate and the mindstate becomes more sedate and meditative. Muscle relaxation, light pain relief, mood elevation, anti-anxiety properties, and appetite stimulation are all parts of the Grape Ape experience, making it a favorite medical choice for patients seeking a middle-of-the-road Indica experience replete with flavor and bag appeal.
Grape Ape responds well to moderately heavy feeding and fourishes in both hydro or soil mediums. The purple coloration comes out naturally but is encouraged by cooler temperatures.
It’s a plant of short stature and grows most commonly as a small low-lying bush, responding well to topping but not normally needing it. Netting and other methods of keeping the canopy even will reward the grower with an even canopy of medium-sized but extremely dense flowers.
