Grapefruit Strain Genetics
This potent sativa strain packs its punch from cannabis strain and old school favourite Cinderella 99 – whose own parentage was allegedly found inside an Amsterdam-purchased Sensi Seeds package of Jack Herer. However, as far as DNA genetics go, the official lineage of this Grapefruit strain remains something of a mystery.
So yes, while we aren’t too sure exactly who Cindy got together with, we have it on good authority it was a sativa strain with fast flowering time, selected for the rich citrusy flavour that gives Positronic Seeds Grapefruit its namesake.
With regards to plant height, Cinderella 99 isn’t the tallest – In this sense, these cannabis seeds are an almost original clone, with this hybrid strain inheriting her short plant height, sporting a thick stem and small branches, her crowning glory a large fiery central bud.
Grapefruit Strain Terpene Profile
These delicious seeds produce an almost tactile aroma is thanks to a triangle of terpenes, shaken together by the Positronics Seeds bank to create a deliciously fruity cocktail, perfect for those with a sweet tooth.
Common in many cannabis seeds, myrcene is the dominating force in Grapefruit cannabis, a terpene responsible for that balsam-esque fragrance found in beer.
Added to the mix we have caryophyllene, another terpene common among the world of seeds, beautifully blending subtle spice with myrcene’s fresh herbal scent. These Grapefruit seeds also contain the lesser-known pinene, whose fresh unsurprisingly pine-esque scent helps this hybrid strain open up the airways and balance out an otherwise overpoweringly fruity flavour.
