Gone are the days when weed is, most often than not, associated entirely with psychotic behaviors, powerful and unpleasant odors and almost anything that is opposite to admirable. The indica leaning Grapefruit Kush strain, for example, is able to provide a strong high without any pungent or unpleasant odors.

Information about Grapefruit Kush:
Over the years, cannabis has gained enough respect from both its avid users and the general public. In line with this change in perspective, cannabis varieties have also evolved and have become more flexible than ever regarding their potency, medical benefits, and whatnot to accommodate the needs of different users. Needless to say, cannabis strains can now have a little bit of everything.
A strain can have the strength that recreational users would love while maintaining a sweet and pleasant aroma that makes it tolerable for those who are not a fan of strong odors. Consequently, others may not be as potent but they do have impressive amounts of CBD that make them the best medicinal alternative to patients suffering from certain health conditions.
It is no surprise that users would come across a strain that is rather deliciously potent than a typical pungent weed. Take the Grapefruit Kush, for example. As the name implies, this strain is one of the fruitiest ones in the market. But, that is not the only notable thing about it.
Grapefruit Kush is surprisingly able to provide a potent high that recreational users enjoy. At the same time, it has proven to be quite useful in providing symptom relief to patients with various health issues. On top of that, it is a delicious treat for all.
Grapefruit Kush is one of the few strains with an unknown place of origin. However, it is said to be the child strain of BC Kush and Grapefruit, thus its name. The breeder responsible for the creation of this potent hybrid is the Next Generation.

Grapefruit Kush is yet another cannabis variety that appeals to both recreational and medical marijuana users. With THC levels reaching as high as 22%, it is considered as a moderately potent strain that may be tolerable for some inexperienced users given the right dosage.
The strain’s high starts with an uplifting feeling that may boost one’s energy and can even prompt giggles to some. The user will feel happier and often get the munchies.
Now, considering the 70% Indica concentration of Grapefruit Kush, it is not surprising how the strain can induce a sense of deep relaxation that tends to have a body-numbing effect. This powerful body buzz makes the strain an ideal evening treat for all types of users.
The best description of Grapefruit Kush’s fragrance is strong yet sweet. It does have a noticeable scent which it most likely inherited from its Kush lineage. However, the unusual combination of earth and citrus scents somehow makes the strain’s overall aroma rather pleasing to any user.
To those users who are very particular with the taste of their strains, Grapefruit Kush will surely not disappoint such craving. Indeed, it reminds users of the sweet and citrusy flavors of an actual grapefruit. Although, this time, it has some hash and cream aftertaste.
One of the downsides of every cannabis strain is the fact that regardless of how beneficial they may seem to some users, a few adverse reactions are still inevitable. Having said that, users must be prepared for such side-effects.
As for Grapefruit Kush, the most commonly reported side effect is dry mouth which may be accompanied by mild cases of dry eyes. Although these are quite manageable, users should also be mindful of other adverse reactions like dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety.
Grapefruit Kush is an Indica-dominant strain with a 70:30 content ratio. Combine this with an impressive THC concentration and a satisfactory CBD content, it gives the strain enough medicinal value.
For one, the body-numbing properties of Grapefruit Kush make it an effective pain reliever for those patients suffering from muscle spasms including some symptoms of fatigue. At the same time, the sedative effect of the strain can help induce sleepiness in insomniacs and practically anyone who needs a little help in getting a good night sleep.
Other sources would claim that the strain can also be a good stress-reliever as well as provide temporary relief to patients suffering from seizures. Although, the latter is quite questionable considering the relatively low CBD level of Grapefruit Kush.
