The Grape Escape: Cannabis Strains That Taste Like Grapes

(Elysse Feigenblatt/Leafly)

Tis’ the season for apples, pies, and pumpkins. But as you make your way through your second pumpkin spice latte, consider another less popular yet oh-so-delicious fall treat: grapes. Without them we wouldn’t have wine, jellies, or the inspiration for this round-up for amazing grape-tasting cannabis strains.

Even the hue of Grape Krush resembles that classic grape-purple color, so we couldn’t possibly leave this delicious number off the round-up. With a surprisingly uplifting high mingling on the edge of a more potent and relaxing effect, it’s perfect for winding down at the end of the day.

Why People Love It:

“One of those strains that has cool bud structures and a great grape taste. I would definitely recommend this one, the high is clean. Although it is an indica dominant strain, I would find myself kayaking for hours upon end while smoking Grape Krush.” —NickUSA

Grape Stomper

Why People Love It:

“Awesome mouth-watering taste … With a natural grape taste, even in a diamond cigar I felt like a swig of grape soda laced my blunt. The smoke hits your chest with the most pleasant high. Uplifts your thoughts and calms your lower body.” —DrGhostmonious

Granddaddy Purple is always a top pick on “Favorite Strain” lists, and it’s easy to see why. With full mental and physical effects ranging from cerebral creativity and the numbing of a number of ailments, Granddaddy Purple is one of those grape-y strains that will (thankfully) be around until the end of time.

Why People Love It:

“The sweetest strain I’ve ever tasted. The exhale seriously reminds me of a grape popsicle. It’s a potent indica, with an extremely mellow body stone that’s great for relaxation and pain relief. One of my favourite indicas. Do yourself a favour and score some of this dank-ass ganja.” —NeonPablo

Zkittlez

Find Zkittlez Nearby

Grape Ape and Grapefruit parents created the incredible tasting and happily euphoric Zkittlez. With a blend of berry and tropical flavors, toking on Zkittlez will be as close to eating candy as you can get—but without all that sugar.

Why People Love It:

“Smells of crushed grape skittles with citrus notes and berry undertones. I agree about wanting to tape my face to the jar. Effects are very strong, very fast. Sedating the body and calming the mind. This won’t shut off your head but will allow you to be mellow and focused in small to medium doses. High doses tend to lend more to the indica side leaving you more and more relaxed as time goes on.” —chi3fz3ro

Sour Grape

Find Sour Grape Nearby

With Sour Diesel and Granddaddy Purple lineage, Sour Grape was bred to do amazing things. The taste will pucker you up while the effects sink into your body and deliver a shot of cerebral energy. Different to the “Sour Grapes” above, make sure you’re choosing this particular strain at your next dispensary visit. 

Why People Love It:

“In the words of the great Homer Simpson: “mmmm…grapes”. Or maybe it was donuts … The point I’m trying to make is the how much Sour Grape tastes and smells like the fruit of which it is named. Like other Sour variants a delayed skunky aftertaste lingers much like sucking on a giant sour patch kid. The high is cerebral with the usual face numbing that usually comes with Sour Diesel. Great high for night or day. Medicinally best for depression and stress.” —dabbyduckishighasfuck

Grape Ape

Grape Ape was named for its pungent, grape aroma, so you know it’s going to be good. With characteristic purple leaves, this strain will relax the mind and calm the body, making it a great choice to beat insomnia and get some much-needed shut-eye.

Why People Love It:

“Dude… had a top shelf G after a 14-hour shift and it took me to the moon. The high crept on slowly and intensely, ridding all stresses of the day. Consumed with a vaporizer the grape taste and smell is wonderful. The buds were extremely frosty and easy to breakdown.” —drewdeezus
