What IS the origin and genetic composition of Grape Ape feminized seeds?
As aforementioned, Grape Ape is an Indica dominant strain, and its THC level oscillates between 17% and 25%, which might overwhelm novice consumers. More tests on this strain have revealed that the highest CBD level achieved is just 1%, which is more than most strains on the market.
Grape Ape is short but bushy and attains an optimal height of 71-79cm at maturity. Despite the short stature, Grape Ape’s buds are large and dense. Given their dark purple color, you might confuse them for grapes or blackberries. The buds are covered by a moderate to a high layer of trichomes, making them sticky.

After a few hits of the Grape Ape, a calming high starts to creep in. You might feel your body and brain so relaxed and so focused.
Thoughts start to slow as the effects intensify, and the body weakens, thanks to the Indica properties. At this point, you should stop the session and let the body and brain synthesize this mojo. Given the strain’s high potency levels, people with low THC tolerance should only take a few hits and float in the “high.”
What does the Grape Ape strain smell and taste like?
One of the reasons behind the high demand for Grape Ape seeds is the incredible aroma and flavor that the buds produce. A strong aroma of candy with berry notes hits your olfactory notes when you break the buds open. When combusted, the buds produce a strong sweet aroma with hash and skunk notes.
