Hand in hand, TGA Genetics and Norstar Genetics developed Grape Inferno – one of the finest strains in the cannabis industry.
As far as looks go, this strain is very attractive. It is a striking bud that boasts an amalgam of lavender, purple, and pink, signaling interested enthusiasts of its delicious flavor profile. Meanwhile, a thick coat of trichomes allude to its potency which average between 18% to 23% THC.
Besides smelling and tasting great, the herb also has favorable effects. It brings together a elating head high with a relaxing comedown that lasts throughout the day. As such, it may not be the best idea to use it in the morning or early afternoon where there is much to be done.
To develop the herb, the breeders picked strains the mysteriously elusive Nepali OG and paired it with the ever popular Querkle. The cross is undoubtedly among the most interesting too, as many had considered each to be a far cry from the other. Still, the two produced an offspring that lived up to both its distinguished fruity flavors, potency, and Indica heritage.

As the mental effects persist, the same uplifting buzz develops into a soothing sensation that is felt unanimously all over the body. It is the bud’s potent Indica genes manifesting hours after the first puff. In waves, it relaxes the muscles and plants a heaviness in the limbs in each spot it crashes. Keeping users from being totally couch locked is the initial cerebral high despite the imminent urge to relax and unwind.

For the longest time, cannabis has served as a source of comfort by humans. And, with the advancements of technology, it has become possible to attribute its life-changing reprieve to two main cannabinoids which are THC and CBD.

To achieve this, aspiring growers must make sure to expose the plant to cooler nighttime temperatures as it nears the end of its maturation cycle. Adding support to its branches will help keep it from breaking off due to the yield’s heavy weight.
