Sweet Pink Grapefruit is a mostly indica hybrid that’s sure to lull you into a sweet, deep relaxation. This bud comes to us from DinaFem seeds, purveyors of Moby Dick, and is a cross between fruity staple strains Blueberry and Grapefruit. The fruity potency of these parent strains comes through, as does their solid psychoactivity. Sweet Pink Grapefruit’s THC content has been measured at between 12% and 19%.
Sweet Pink Grapefruit sets itself apart right away with medium to large well-formed flowers. The buds are in a cylindrical, bullet-like formation and have a characteristically indica structure, with densely-packed and tightly-coiled leaves. The leaves themselves are a bluish green and are wound through with orange and brown pistils. Finally, icy white trichomes coat the inner and outer surfaces of these dense flowers and make them very sticky to the touch.
When they’re properly cured, Sweet Pink Grapefruit’s flowers give off a tangy, citrus-like scent that is indeed redolent of grapefruity. Hanging out underneath are some of the berry and grape aromas associated with Blueberry. Meanwhile, grinding up the buds gives off notes of sandalwood and hash that may be familiar to fans of grandparent strain Afghani. When it’s combusted in a pipe or a joint, Sweet Pink Grapefruit is very smooth and easy to inhale. It carries flavors of sour citrus on the exhale.
Sweet Pink Grapefruit is a creeper that may wait several minutes to work after smokers have savored its memorably sweet smoke. Within at most a quarter of an hour, this bud begins to show itself with early effects like an increased blood pressure around the temples and eyes. Once these odd sensations begin to abate, consumers may feel a sudden heaviness in their eyelids and limbs alike. Relaxation and a slight drowsiness might be suddenly apparent to those who were previously active and may inspire them to seek comfort on the nearest couch. As Sweet Pink Grapefruit sends waves of relaxation through the body, it can untie any knots of tension in the muscles and may facilitate deep, restorative breathing. In this newly-relaxed state, consumers may feel suddenly more creative and may find themselves launched into a daydream or a spell of creative brainstorming. As the high lifts usual mental inhibitions, it may also have strange effects on sensory perception: some smokers may experience auditory or visual distortions while others may develop the sense that time is passing more slowly. This soothing, psychedelic state can be a good way to decompress after a long work day and can be enhanced with a visually engaging movie or a moody playlist. Generally speaking, this is not a strain to toke before starting work on a task that requires concentration or close attention to detail. As the high progresses or as dosage is increased, Sweet Pink Grapefruit’s physical properties may intensify, melting users into their surroundings and forcing the outside world further and further into the background. Because of its mostly sedative vibe, this is one strain best enjoyed at night — or at least on a day when you have nothing else to do.
Sweet Pink Grapefruit can also have a few applications for medical cannabis patients. Its numb, blissed-out vibe can temporarily relieve the symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety. It can also dull physical pain, whether it’s due to injury or to chronic conditions like lupus or arthritis. Anti-inflammatory properties, meanwhile, can soothe minor irritations like cramps or indigestion. In suitably relaxed conditions, Sweet Pink Grapefruit can even work against insomnia, providing deep and restful sleep. Because it is unlikely to bring about focused, cerebral thinking, this strain is a good option for patients who are prone to panic or who have a low THC tolerance.
