Grape Ape Delta 8 Strain
While Grape Ape Delta 8 (Delta 8 THC or D8) may seem like a newer strain, it has quite the history and has been around for a while now. Grape Ape is an Indica-dominant Hybrid and is a cross between Mendocino Purps, Afghani, and Skunk. Being that it’s a 90/10 Indica-dominant strain, G.A. is great for nighttime consumption. It offers soothing, calming, full-body effects, and can help you wind down at the end of the day or prepare for a sleepy, restful night.
Like all your other favorite strains, you can find Grape Ape in many forms! This includes Grape Ape Delta 8 THC vape cartridges, disposable vape cartridges, pre-rolls, flower, and other concentrated cannabinoid products. When shopping for G.A., make sure you check for a Certificate of Analysis (COA). These third-party lab tests verify the potency and quality of each product to ensure customers receive a quality product.
What Does This Strain Smell and Taste Like?
Like its name, Grape Ape is reminiscent of grape soda! Aside from having a fruity, sweet grape flavor, it’s still skunky and earthy. Grape Ape is the strain for you if you have a sweet tooth but are also a fan of more woodsy, natural berry flavors or aromas.
But how does Grape Ape smell and taste so great? The answer is terpenes, all-natural compounds found in almost all plants. Above all else, terpenes are responsible for helping plants pollinate. They do this by attracting pollinators to the plant so that their seeds can spread and grow.
Terpenes are great at attracting pollinators because of how good they smell — this is how they benefit hemp products, too! Each strain of flower naturally has a different blend of terpenes. This is how they all smell so unique.
Grape Ape’s terpene profile includes the terpenes:
What Does Grape Ape Look Like?
Grape Ape is tasty, but have you seen her? This plant boasts deep purple leaves and is just as stunning to observe as it is to smoke. The buds are dense and compact, and each one is rich in trichomes, the resin-producing glands of a cannabis plant, making for a rich and high-quality smoking experience.
Consuming Grape Ape Delta 8 has a lot of advantages, which is one of the reasons it’s such a popular strain! After smoking or consuming most D8 products, you’ll get to experience benefits like:
- A boost in appetite
- Improvement in sleep quality
- Easing of worried thoughts and general nervousness
- An uplift in your mood and overall wellbeing
- Alleviation of discomfort and achiness
- Clear-headed euphoria
- And more!
You’ll experience these benefits for different amounts of time, depending on how you consume your Delta 8. For example, if you smoke Grape Ape flower, you’ll likely feel its effects for 3 to 4 hours. If you consume it in edible form, you’ll feel benefits for 6 to 8 hours once your body metabolizes the edible.
Each consumption method has its pluses and minuses, so certain methods may be better for some than others! While you may not feel benefits from smoking for very long, this is great for some people because it makes it easier to enjoy benefits during the day. You’ll also feel effects much faster if you smoke G.A. flower (from immediately to within 30 to 90 seconds after inhalation).
When you consume a Grape Ape edible, on the other hand, you won’t experience effects for 45 minutes to an hour. Since it stays in your system so long after metabolizing, you won’t have to consume as much to experience benefits for the whole day!
Though most individuals know that Delta 8 THC is well-tolerated, mild side effects may occur if you consume more than the recommended dose for your body weight. Side effects are also more likely to occur if you’ve never tried hemp products before and take more than you can ideally handle.
Luckily, side effects are often mild and temporary. Here are some more common ones:
- Red or dry eyes
- Dry mouth (often called “cottonmouth”)
- Mild upset stomach or diarrhea
The best way to avoid feeling side effects is by starting with a smaller dose of D8. Remember that you can always consume more, but you can’t remove what you’ve already consumed once you’ve started.
