Appearance & Aroma
Grape Soda is distinguished by its extensive, chunky flowers clinging together in spherical and elongated columns, looking like small bullets. These buds show off a composite internal structure with a dense, Indica-typical inner core and long, Sativa-like leaves that turn outward in folds, giving the buds the appearance of brain coral. The leaves are an eye-catching blend of sage green and dark indigo, with the latter colours coming from increased concentrations of the pigment anthocyanin. Finally, corkscrewed amber pistils and dewy, sheer trichomes cap off these colourful flowers.
As you might anticipate, Grape Soda’s primary scent is that of fresh, ripe grapes — notably, though, this fragrance is coincidental to the flowers’ purple colouring. A deeper whiff may pick up on other fruity hints like orange and berry. Grinding up or breaking apart these buds delivers more of a skunky tang. When it’s combusted, Grape Soda gives off a thick and heavy smoke but is nevertheless fruity and easy to consume. Upon the exhale, this smoke leaves behind a robust grape flavour.
Effects & Benefits
The effects from Grape Soda can creep up gradually, sometimes not hitting the user 10 to 15 minutes after they’ve consumed it. When they arrive, the effects hit hard, exerting raised blood pressure around the temples and lower forehead; users might also sense some flushing in the cheeks or an increase in salivation. Once these sensations subside, users have access to a warped cognitive state in which their ideas seem to have a new dimension or intensity. Thoughts that might not otherwise strike them can suddenly become intriguing, while certain words or other stimuli can initiate bouts of free association. This cerebral activation can help promote intense brainstorming sessions. Alternatively, smokers can enjoy Grape Soda’s mental buzz as they get through a dull day’s agenda.
But take heed — within around an hour, Grape Soda’s mental edge gives way to a relaxed feeling. Customers out and about might dash home, while those lucky enough to be at home may start to melt into their surroundings. Although this strain’s mental stimulus may persist for the duration of the high, smokers may be stripped of some primary motivation and may be able to do little more than a daydream. Due to its eventual descent into sedation, Grape Soda is suggested for evening or nighttime use.
Grape Soda’s gentle somatic effects can have multiple applications for medical cannabis users. For one, its capacity to improve mood can make the strain a reliable way to take the edge off stress, depression, and anxiety symptoms. Grape Soda may also numb physical pain, even the kind that’s due to chronic illnesses like arthritis or COPD. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can take the edge out of mild discomforts like headaches, migraines or nausea. This Indica may even put users to sleep in a comfortable set and setting, making it a viable therapy for insomnia. Grape Soda is a suitable option for those with a low THC tolerance or prone to panic, thanks to its lower-than-average risk of paranoid, compulsive thinking patterns.
Packing a colossal THC punch, Grape Soda is sure to win over even seasoned cannabis connoisseurs. It’s just the thing for zoning out after a long day or week of work.
