What is Grapefruit?
Grapefruit Strain is the name applied to two distinct Sativa-dominant strains. The first is known as BC Grapefruit and the second as Nectar’s Grapefruit. Both strains provide powerful uplifting feelings of euphoria and impart energy, with Nectar’s Grapefruit often described as also exhilarating. Although their Sativa heritages produce similar effects, the strains differ in other ways. The Nectar’s strain’s effects tend to be more internal, often giving rise to deep thought, while BC Grapefruit causes users to feel more social and talkative. Both strains have common negative effects: dry mouth and eyes, dizziness, paranoia, and anxiety.
BC Grapefruit comes from a clone of unknown genetics. Breeder Steve from Spice of Life found the clone, which had been labeled the one to grow. It gained some popularity in the 80s but was clone only. Other breeders have created seeds by back-crossing the strain. True BC Grapefruit has since become very scarce. The strains derived from BC Grapefruit carry a THC range of 15% -20% and grow well both outside and indoors. They flower for 55 to 60 days.Nectar’s Grapefruit is a cross between C99/Cinderella 99 and an unknown landrace Sativa devised by Nectar Seeds. Like BC Grapefruit, it can grow both indoors and outside but has a longer flowering time of 60 to 69 days.
