Is there anything better than a big, pink grapefruit with a pinch of sugar and an evening to yourself? I mean, sure... maybe. But for this exercise let's say the answer is no. No, there is nothing better. And for those that love the parents of this deliciously fruity strain, you'll agree. By crossing three tremendously potent strains, Afghani, Northern Lights, and Skunk #1, the breeders at DNA Genetics developed a surprisingly refreshing bud with all the powerful effects of its lineage.
Though this is not a particularly high THC strain, averaging at around 13%, this is still a relatively potent and long-lasting high. The buzz is a sedating one, and though these little popcorn buds might look inviting, they are not to be underestimated. They are neon green with a sprinkle of amber hairs and dusty white trichomes. The tangy aroma is apparent from the first puff and is accompanied by bright citrus flavors like grapefruit and orange. The freshness of the fruit is obvious on both the nose and the palate.
California Grapefruit is a strong indica high that creeps in slowly, suddenly hitting hard around the thirty-minute mark. Many users mistake this for a "dud bud," but if you are smart you'll wait for that weak in the knees tingly feeling before you let her rip another time. The couch lock phase is long-lasting and mind-numbing, causing severe introspectiveness. The warm body buzz is entirely sedating, making this the perfect nighttime bud as it slows the room down and gets you in the mood to curl up with a warm blanket. Enjoy this intensely sleepy bud after a long day at work and have the best night of sleep you can, or can't, remember having.
Because of the potent effects of this strain, California Grapefruit is good for any ailment wherein a strong sedative would be the most beneficial. These issues include insomnia, night terrors, chronic pain, muscle spasms, and headaches. For an instant mood boost, that is before you fall asleep, try this one in smaller doses and feel the symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety, and minor symptoms of PTSD melt away.
If you loved this strain before be prepared for your heart to grow a little bigger. California Grapefruit is one of those plants that growers pine for: the easy, laid back lady you don't mind bringing home to momma. She offers a stellar indoor and outdoor experience with higher than average yields at around 8 to 9 weeks or mid-October for outdoor gardens. This strain does best in sunny and dry climates and is resistant to most common molds and mildew.
For an insane couch locked high to round out an otherwise trying day, California Grapefruit is a great strain to try, especially if you want to get a stellar night of sleep. This flavorful strain will creep up on you so be certain you know how it will affect you before going back for seconds. Although it is potent, it is not necessarily an advanced strain, but novice users are definitely advised to proceed with caution.
