Grapefruit is an upbeat sativa cross that stems from Cinderella 99. While the effects of this strain are overwhelmingly euphoric, new consumers should proceed with caution. Grapefruit can produce THC levels as high as 25%.

Grapefruit is a sativa-dominant hybrid cross between Cinderella 99 and an unknown sativa. The latter strain is supposedly where this fruity bud inherited its signature citrus flavor. Cinderella 99 is an upbeat hybrid with strong sativa-dominant effects. The THC content in this strain is high, ranging from 20 to 25%.

The Grapefruit experience is overwhelmingly cerebral. In true sativa form, this strain inspires a happy, uplifting mood. Great for daytime use, Grapefruit provides a similar mental energy to a cup coffee. In large quantities, consumers may find the experience a little dizziness. Though, Grapefruit is not commonly associated with the raciness or anxiety caused by some pure sativas.

Medical cannabis consumers often use this strain to fight fatigue and manage headaches. Grapefruits energizing aroma and uplifting experience make this sativa popular among patients with depression. Anyone seeking a quick, daytime de-stress session will also enjoy the upbeat effects of Grapefruit.
