According to Aaron Justis, the Owner of Buds & Roses, this difference in color was completely dependent on which part of the plant that the flower originates from. “Smoking the Grape Ape strain seemed to eliminate any pain throughout my body.” The Grape Ape strain’s terpene profile seems very similar to that of Granddaddy Purple. Both strains have an intense berry aroma, making it hard to tell them apart based on smell alone. I likened the smell from this batch to a big bowl of Berry Kix.
This batch of the Grape Ape strain was a great representation of the strain overall. Smoking it seemed to eliminate any pain throughout my body, and it noticeably reduced the amount of tension I could feel in my neck and shoulders. With that said, large concentrations of the Grape Ape strain have a tendency to make patients groggy after a couple of hours. Accordingly, it is best to medicate with this strain at night. Consider the Grape Ape strain if you suffer from insomnia, chronic pain, chronic stress, or muscle spasms.

Its dense buds resemble large blackberries or grapes that are a deep purple color when ready to harvest and its taste and smell are similar to sweet berries with a skunky undertone. The parents of Grape Ape are the indica Afghani, hybrid Skunk No. 1, and some believe that hybrid Mendocino Purps is also a part of the lineage. Reviewers have made note that it is a phenotype of the famous Grand Daddy Purple. Grape Ape’s THC content averages at 16% and doesn’t normally get any higher than 20%. Its high causes the eyes to feel heavy, creates a strong body buzz that relaxes the muscles and in many cases creates a couch-lock. It renders the consumer into a lazy stoop which makes this strain best for nighttime use. Some reviewers report this strain is good for clearing the mind while relaxing. Some have reported bouts of paranoia after consuming too much, but normal side-effects such as cotton mouth and dry eyes are to be expected. Though this indica rarely hovers above four feet tall and only takes six to eight weeks to harvest, it’s not recommended for first-time growers since it requires extra attention during cultivation. The sativa-dominant hybrid Cinderella 99 is a potent strain that smells of tropical citrus and tastes of sweet lemons with an earthy undertone. The THC content of Cinderella 99 averages at 18% with some crops topping off at 22%. It’s high is oftendefined as perfect for uplifting creativity of the mind, creating a dreamy mood and an accompanyinglight body high. Energy is often increased and many claim that it can be used throughout the entirety ofthe day, its high usually lasting around 90 minutes. However, little is needed to feel this strain’s effects,with reviewers noting a little goes a long way. Paranoia is a known ill side-effect if too much is consumed at once along with a mild headache ordizziness. Cinderella 99 grows best when cultivated using hydroponics – producing up to two pounds for everysquare meter as some growers have stated. A squat-growing sativa that has almost pure Haze qualities, Cinderella 99 is truly a gem of cannabis engineering. It produces a long, thick central colas if left up-topped and has a very high calyx-to-leaf ratio, making it extremely desirable to breeders. A very good producer as well, it's equally suitable for commercial or connoisseur gardens. It's been used in countless crosses over the years, and though the original seed stock is thought to be largely extinct, many breeders have created very stable F2 seed stock, allowing this incredible plant's genetic line to live on. 'Princess' clone (Sensi Seeds Jack Herer F2) x (Jack Herer x Shiva Skunk), 'cubed' by back-crossing over 3 generations. 'Princess' was a specially-selected Sensi Jack Herer F2 from the late 90's… a male seed from the same batch of Jack Herer was crossed to a special Shiva Skunk female, producing some male seeds suitable for breeding. A selected male was crossed with Princess, the product seeds of which were then crossed back to Princess over three generations.
Ideally, Princess was 'cubed' by being bred to her male offspring, producing an extremely stable seed stock that become the legendary Cinderella 99. Varies a bit according to phenotype (there are two main ones — grapefruit and pineapple), but it's generally a sharp and almost putrid citrus/pineapple. The Brothers Grimm's favorite phenotype was known as the "evil pineapple" pheno and has an almost rotten meat quality to the sharp fruity smells.
Much like the smell, it seems Haze dominant, with acrid citrus notes as well as some flowery touches. The flavor depends upon phenotype, with the famous "evil pineapple" pheno having a complex rotten fruit flavor with floral hints, and the "grapefruit" phenotype is similar to New York City Diesel in flavor profile, with a sharp and musky citrus flavor.
