Strain Spotlight: Grape Danish

by Lindsey Winsemius - Posted 2 years ago

Different strains of marijuana can be combined into a hybrid that gives the user a certain flavor or experience.

Traditionally, indica and sativa plants were thought to give users different effects. They are physically different; cannabis indica plants are shorter and firmer stems with thick stubby leaves that grew in alternating patterns, while sativa-type plants were taller with feathery thin leaves.

Researchers are still determining the nature of the differences between sativa and indica plants, which we will cover more in a later article.

What is the Grape Danish strain?

Grape Danish, also called Purple Danish, is a 50/50 hybrid that combines a sativa bud with equal amounts of indica.

This darkish green bud has a light dusting of orange hairs with a purple undertone.

This purple-tinged bud is a high testing THC cannabis product.

What is the flavor of Grape Danish?

The flavor for the Grape Danish strain is described as fruity, grape, and spicy, that's said to be like a glass of mulled mead.

The aroma is quite pungent; very dank, diesel, and spicy. 

What are the effects of the Grape Danish strain?

Because of the hybrid mix, Grape Danish offers a well-balanced high that relaxes both mind and body with relatively mild effects. A cerebral lift will help boost your mood to increase happiness and a sense of relaxation.

In some people, it can help relieve chronic pain, cramps, depression, and fatigue.

This strain can be used both daytime and evening, as the mild high both relaxes and boosts the mood.

About Purple Cannabis Strains

Cannabis can come in a rainbow of colors, and yes, different shades can determine varied effects, taste, and even scent.

Purple strains of cannabis are probably the most popular, such as Granddaddy Purple, Purple Haze and Purple Urkle. Yes, Purple Urkle was launched by “Steve Urkle” actor Jaleel White. “Did I do that?” Millennials know what I’m talking about.  TGIF, am I right?

Marijuana strains that appear purplish or blue as opposed to the traditional green cannabis, tend to be more fruity, due to the high number of anthocyanins. In case you were wondering, anthocyanins are a type of flavonoid, a class of compounds with antioxidant effects. Found naturally in a number of foods, anthocyanins are the pigments that give red, purple, and blue plants their rich coloring.

Strong and vibrant color also indicates that your cannabis is at its peak freshness, taste, and potency. If you are consuming your colorful bud orally in tinctures, oils, edibles, or capsules, you are also getting the nutritional benefits of carotenoids, anthocyanins and other flavonoids.
