Bred by Apothecary Genetics, Sour Grapes strain is a well-balanced hybrid that combines both cannabis types. It is a 50/50 ratio of Sativa/Indica, so either type of pot enthusiasts will enjoy it. The THC level ranges from 16% to 18% with a CBD concentration of 0.83-1.81%.

Grape Stomper is another name of this weed. Absolutely one of the best flavors on the market. When I think of it, it makes my mouth water. As a low tolerance smoker, Im using it before bedtime.

All About Sour Grapes Weed Strain

Smell and Flavor

The strain has different smells and aromas, but the predominant one would be a rubbery fragrance similar to a tennis ball. This aroma combined with herbal and diesel hints and fruitiness makes up the fragrance of this powerful strain.

Another unique characteristic of this pot is that it tastes like actual sour grapes and has earthy notes when smoking it. On exhale, there is also a syrupy aftertaste.

Sour Grapes Strain Effects

One of the most prominent strain characteristics is that it has long-lasting and intense effects on users.

Grandaddy Purple is highly sedative and very strong, and it does pull its weight when mixed with Sour Diesel. Breeders who mix Grape Ape and Sour Diesel get a combination with a less potent THC level.

Users may feel a more optimized burst of creativity which can help them with careers. The uplifting feelings make smokers feel euphoric which is consistent with a relaxing body high. Some weed strain versions might also bring in some energizing properties that will motivate smokers to engage in a conversation or take up other useful activities of their interest.

The seeds are hard to find on major commercial channels; however, there are a few growers who have managed to clone the Grapestomper strain, but the numbers don’t show an active following by growers. This cannabis is not popular among cultivators.

The plants are well-managed in both indoor and outdoor grow operations. The typical flowering time for Sour Grapes strain is 50-65 days with a harvest time of 69-76 days. The height of plants reaches 60-80 inches, and its yields are classified as high.

Consumption Advice

Beginners may find the Grape Stompper strain a little bit abrasive unless they go for other versions except for the one mixed with Granddaddy Purple. They can find this strain with a less THC content for their own enjoyment or medical applications. Novices should be cautious with the marijuana version they smoke because it may come with high-potency rates. They should opt for lighter alternatives to avoid feeling overwhelming effects.
