As with many other Indica-heavy strains, Grape Ape is recommended for use later in the day or at night. The strong Indica body-numbing effects are helpful for relieving chronic aches and pains, while the cerebral effects of Sativa help to melt away stress and anxiety. It is used by some patients in the treatment of depression and bi-polar disorder. Others use it to alleviate insomnia, migraines, nausea, and nervousness.
Grape Ape is a cross between a landrace Afghani Indica mother and Skunk #1, bred by Apothecary Genetics. The strain thrives indoors but can also be grown outside, requiring anywhere between six and eight weeks to finish flowering. It can yield up to 800 grams per square meter. The strainís THC range is also above average, hovering around 15%-20%. Grape Ape rarely grows above four feet tall and is not recommended for new growers.
