Grape Kush Strain is a well-balanced hybrid with striking colors and a memorable flavor to match. This bud’s bag appeal is in part due to its powerful genetics. Created by Cali Connection — purveyors of the “Alien” line, which includes Alien OG and Sour Alien — Grape Kush is a cross between the ubiquitous Pre-98 Bubba Kush and flavorful indica hybrid Romulan Grapefruit. Grape Kush high is a well-balanced combination of mental distortion and physical relaxation. Cannabis testing lab Analytical 360 has found samples of Grape Kush to have between 15% and a staggering 30% THC.
Grape Kush Strain flowers are more renowned for their color than for their size. When trimmed, these buds tend to be small to medium in size and hold a roughly spherical, popcorn-like shape. They have the dense formation usually associated with predominantly indica varieties. The leaves of these nuggets stand out, with almost equal proportions of green and deep purple, all twisted through with hairy, rust-colored pistils. These purple hues are the result of cold weather acting upon anthocyanin pigments in the bud’s genetics during the growing process. Finally, icy white trichomes cover the inner and outer nooks and crannies of these dense buds, accounting for their potent psycho activity.
When properly cured, Grape Kush flowers have the predominant aroma of tangy, sour grapes. Lingering underneath is a sweeter, berry-like character. Meanwhile, grinding up the solid buds yields the notes of dank earth and pine that make parent strain Bubba Kush so popular. When combusted, Grape Kush burns with a light, sweet smoke that is easily palatable to many consumers. This smoke has a simultaneously sweet and funky, sour taste on the exhale. Notably, the strong grape flavors associated with this strain are incidental to its purple coloring —
