Grapefruit Diesel Strain Genetics
Grapefruit Diesel, as the name suggests, is the offspring of the combination of Grapefruit and NYC Diesel. This combination of cup winners has a strong lineage of its own, with the likes of Sour Diesel, Chemdawg, and Super Skunk swinging from the branches of the Grapefruit Diesel family tree.
Despite being an indica dominant strain, Grapefruit Diesel is an evenly balanced hybrid strain, inheriting impressive DNA genetics from both its indica and sativa lineage.
Grapefruit Diesel Strain Terpene Profile
The delightful tangy, grapefruit/citrus flavour and aroma of this indica dominant hybrid strain comes from its terpene profile.
Pinene provides, as the name suggests, a woody, pine-like addition to the scent, while limonene offers up a hint of citrus lemon to the bouquet. Also, present, caryophyllene, adds a hint of spice to the flavour on exhale, and a peppery touch to the aroma.
The combination of pinene and limonene form a herb-scented fruity mix on both inhale and exhale, as well as offering several possible health benefits to a strain that can be used as medical marijuana.
The final terpene found in the exotic seeds of Grapefruit Diesel, myrcene, produces that familiar herbal cannabis smell and can also help to regulate and enhance the effects of other terpenes.
Grapefruit Diesel Strain Effects
Grapefruit Diesel is known to have effects conducive with productivity and creativity. Limonene and caryophyllene are both thought to relax the mind while pinene is said to promote focus and alertness.
The lower THC content combined with the terpene profile of these cannabis seeds creates a subtle yet uplifting, cerebral, and energetic feeling.
Although indica dominant, this strain’s clear-headed sativa effects make Grapefruit Diesel an ideal strain for those looking for a little pick me up in the morning or middle of the day boost to their productivity. A true indica-sativa hybrid.
Medical Benefits Grapefruit Diesel Strain
This intriguing Grapefruit Diesel strain could provide relief for those with chronic pain thanks to the presence of the terpenes caryophyllene, limonene, and myrcene, which are all believed to provide pain-relief and anti-inflammatory effects — particularly caryophyllene, which binds effectively to cannabinoid receptors.
This combination has led to this indica-sativa hybrid (a relative newcomer to the world of seeds) becoming a popular choice of medical marijuana for chronic pain sufferers and treating patients suffering from frequent headaches or migraines.
Pinene, also present in this increasingly popular marijuana strain is thought to provide clarity for the mind, enhancing short term memory, focus, and alertness, while limonene adds potentially anti-stress properties to the medicinal potential of Grapefruit Diesel.
This could make it an effective strain for treating patients with anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
