While it may not have the wide distribution of its namesake soda, Grape Crush certainly deserves to. Sometimes spelled Grape Krush, this indica-dominant hybrid is derived from fruity staple Blueberry and carries all of its predecessor’s flavor and potency. Grape Crush was created by the infamous DJ Short, who has also given us Vaniluna and Flo. Those lucky enough to try this eye-catching strain can count on smooth, sedative effects that are said to last longer than average. Grape Crush’s THC levels have been charted at between 10% and 19%
It’s hard to deny the visual appeal of Grape Crush’s vivid flowers. They are generally medium in size and hold an elongated, almost cylindrical shape. These spindly flowers have a surprisingly sativa-like bud structure, with their fluffy leaves clinging loosely to their central stems. The leaves themselves are this strain’s tour de force — more often than not, they are a veritable camouflage pattern of green and dark purple. The latter hues are due to pigments called anthocyanins in the strain’s genetics which can trigger vivid colors when stimulated by cold weather during the growing process. Finally, snowy white trichomes cap off these impressive flowers, accounting for their psychoactivity and making them very sticky to the touch.
