For this cannabis strain review, I tried out some Grapefruit GG4 under the Souvenir brand (Emerald Health Therapeutics), grown by Verdelite Sciences. Their products seem to be exclusive to the SQDC, I have not seen this specific cultivar anywhere else, and their growing facility is in the QC province, near Montreal.
The price point is pretty impressive since they’re producing small batches of craft cannabis, look around a few SQDC Reddit forums or the Twitterverse, and you will see that consumers are enjoying this little gem.
It’s a Sativa-dominant strain with THC percentages that vary between 15% and 22%; this specific batch came in on the low end with 15.17% THC and an inconsiderable amount of CBD.
Below is a more detailed breakdown of this Grapefruit GG4 strain.
- Lineage: Grapefruit x GG4
- Type: Sativa-dominant
- Potency: 15-22% THC
- Terpene Profile: Terpinolene, myrcene, limonene, pinene, and caryophyllene
- Packaging Details: Packaged on 7/27/20 and tried/reviewed on 8/31/2020, exactly 35 days later
- Pricing Details: Purchased 3.5 grams for $25.90 at the SQDC in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. ($7.40/gram)
The bag appeal was on point with this Grapefruit GG4, the “star” of the show was a 2.3-gram nug full of different color shades that made it look unique; there were three more little buds to complete the 3.5 grams.
There were spots of light green, dark green, navy, and purple; dark and light orange pistils were ingrained in the buds instead of sticking out, so different orange shades were also present. A sheet of amber trichomes with many glands still intact covered the bud.
This weed came in at 62% when it comes to humidity in the bag, which, as you may know by now, is precisely the number consumers are looking for.
It seems like there’s a pattern here; when terpinolene and either limonene or pinene are the dominant terpenes, there’s this fresh aroma that pleases the nostrils every single time! In this case, a sweet lemonade scent came out of the bag; the sweet citrus smell intensified as the weed was bid up.
I also got hints of grapefruit and pear; the only reason it’s not a perfect score is that it was a little more subtle than I would like it to be (I may or may not be asking for too much here). The grapefruit came out way more than the GG4 did, that’s for sure.
The flavor may be my least favorite aspect of this Grapefruit GG4 strain review, yet it’s still above average. For some reason, the whole flavor profile got somewhat muted, and I didn’t get much other than a touch of citrus, and who doesn’t like citrus?
It was above average because of the smooth smoke and white ash; it was still enjoyable, although you couldn’t get much on the palate.
The effects that this cultivar emitted were right up my alley. The “high” hit me about 15 minutes in; I would describe the feeling as euphoric, uplifting, and clear-headed. I also felt energized and focused when I was doing work.
This may differentiate from consumer to cons353535umer, as this may feel too light for some heavy users; I enjoyed the effects a lot hence the great score. I would love to get a batch of this with cannabinoid content levels on the other side of the spectrum, you know, towards the 22% side.
I completely understand the hype when it comes to this Grapefruit GG4, and I would recommend this to everyone, from beginners to everyday users. This may be one of those daytime strains that you’ll come back for, although it seems like Verdélite Sciences, Inc., which is under Emerald, will be sold to Quinto (Souvenir is a brand that’s under Emerald Therapeutics).
Let’s hope that they’ll keep coming out with these strains in the future. Also, don’t forget to read about my favorite Tom Ford Island Pink Strain and Meat Breath Strain so that you can compare and make an informed decision. If you’ve tried some of this out, let me know what you think in the comments!
