Grapefruit represents a pure Sativa-dominant strain that has a long history on the cannabis market and can offer both a range of uplifting effects as well as a pretty high potency. It originates from a crossing between Cinderella 99 and an unknown Sativa strain created by the grower from Spice of Life named Steve in the early 1980s. The THC content usually ranges between 20% and 23%, which makes this strain fit for experienced users rather than beginners. The CBD level is about 0.22%-0.71%. There are two types of seeds for this strain: Grapefruit seeds feminized and Grapefruit autoflower seeds.

Grapefruit Strain Information

Grapefruit cultivar has many properties that highlight it among others, and the responsibility for this falls onto its terpene profile that includes:

The Flavor Profile

This kush provides a flavor that resembles a tropical mix where citrus and grapefruit combine with earthiness, sweetness, and pungency. In this palette, the base for grapefruit, tropical and earthy flavors is created by Myrcene and Caryophyllene, while Ocimene and Phellandrene bring citrusy notes and sweetness. At the same time, the terpene Camphene is the one on duty for the pungency.

Grapefruit Strain Common Effects

This marijuana has effects that perfectly suit its Sativa nature, inducing a noticeable flow of energy that comes with a package of euphoria and uplift. Many reviewers admit that Grapefruit can increase focus and creative abilities, as well as tends to make the consumer more talkative. In some cases, Grapefruit strain may also provide tingles and even arousal properties, which makes the uses of this Sativa even more versatile. 

Though it has a lot of incredible advantages, Grapefruit is recommended for more experienced smokers due to its high THC levels and powerful effects. The best time for consumption is in the morning, and this cannabis is usually referred to as a perfect wake and bake strain. 

Among the vast properties of Grapefruit, some can help relieve a range of medical disorders:

  • Anxiety
  • Arthritis
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • PMS

As a rather potent Sativa, there is nothing surprising that consuming Grapefruit weed, especially overconsumption, can cause a few side effects:

  • Thirst and dry mouth
  • Low blood pressure
  • Paranoia
  • Concern
  • Heightened sensory perception

Info For Growers

Another advantage of the Grapefruit cannabis plant is that it can be grown both indoors and outdoors. The flowering cycle usually takes about 55-60 days or 8-9 weeks, and during that time, the height can range from 30 to 60 inches. Afterward, the most suitable time for harvest is approximately 68 days after the germination. The plant tends to provide rather rewarding yields that reach about 1-2 Oz/Ft (~400 g/m) indoors and 2-3 Oz/plant (~550 g/plant) while growing outdoors.


Grapefruit Strain is being characterized with an exceptionally high yielding rates, as you can yield up to 25 ounces or sometimes even more from one plant.
The Grapefruit Strain has originated as a mix of Cinderella-99 and a special breed of a fast-growing sativa that smells and tastes like grapefruit.

I dont know why, but the taste seemed very sour to me. It tasted like sour juice or something like that. It was very disgusting that I didn’t smoke the joint and I am very sorry about the money spent.
