Apes in Space Strain Genetics
Apes in Space is an Exotic Genetix strain through and through, created by combining two of the famed seed company’s unique strains, Falcon 9 x Grease Monkey. This creates quite the lineage, giving Apes in Space a family tree that includes cannabis all-stars Original Diesel, Girl Scout Cookies, and Gorilla Glue.
With such an impressive genetic background of skunk and kush strains, it should come as little surprise that this high THC (over 20%) cannabis strain and its trichome covered buds have emerged as a top-shelf, potent powerhouse in seed banks across the U.S, and a mainstay on the wishlist of every cannabis connoisseur.
Apes in Space Strain Terpene Profile
The dominant terpenes present in Apes in Space are apparent when the flavours, aromas, and genetics of this fabulous strain are taken into account. A skunk-like, earthy base flavour with spicy overtones and a slight hint of diesel (passed down from Falcon 9) is the result of a combination of terpenes including caryophyllene and limonene.
Caryophyllene, which appears to be the dominant terpene present, brings that peppery flavour and Chem dawg style petrol coated hue to the undertones of the taste, especially on the inhale.
The classic skunky aroma that hangs in the air a while after exhale is likely caused by the presence of myrcene, while limonene adds the fruity sweet taste handed down the generations from the ever-popular GSC.
Apes in Space Strain Effects
While Gorilla Glue is present in the genetic profile of Apes in Space, its famed couch-lock effects have not been inherited. While there is a potent buzz from this marijuana strain thanks to the high THC level, the high is a touch gentler, with a welcome mix of euphoric happiness, and body-hugging relaxation
With effects that sit somewhere between relaxing and uplifting, this indica dominant cannabis strain is an excellent choice for later in the day, especially in good company. Blissful happiness will be accompanied by a period of excitable chattiness followed by a dreamy, tranquilizing experience that allows consumers to end the evening by drifting off into a deep and peaceful sleep.
Apes in Space Strain Medical Benefits
As Falcon 9 before it, Apes in Space has several possible medical seed uses, including potentially aiding those living with the condition of insomnia. The relaxing effects of this cannabis strain may assist in helping both getting to sleep and staying asleep.
The THC content, combined with caryophyllene, may also have a medical marijuana use for people with chronic pain-related conditions. Working with the endocannabinoid system, these elements may aid in reducing the severity of pain symptoms.
How to Grow Apes in Space Strain Seeds
Apes in Space feminized cannabis seeds are easy to grow for indoor growers, this fast flowering pheno can be ready in as little as a 56 days yield in some cases (rarely more than 70). Being an indica-dominant hybrid cultivar (with very few sativa traits during growing), Apes in Space plants don’t grow too leafy, the multi-topped bush height will stay relatively compact. As a result, the occasional trim should be the extent of the grower’s labour.
Available in both regular and feminized seeds, Apes in Space grows well outdoors in the right conditions but does require a warm and reasonably dry climate. However, whether you are growing these marijuana seeds indoors or outdoors, you can expect a high yield of deep green buds covered in a crackling, crystal coating of abundant trichomes to begin to appear in the lead-up to harvest time.
