About Double Grape
Double Grape is an auto-flowering strain created as a hybrid between Grape Crinkle and Sour Stomper. It has a complex flavor profile that ranges from sweet fruit to earthy, with floral tones on the aftertaste that are pungent and herby. Users love the strain for its ability to make them relaxed and happy, jumpstart their sluggish appetites, and give them feelings of euphoria.

Double Grape by Mephisto, a breeder based in Spain with branches in the United Kingdom, takes around 60 days to flower and gives an average-sized but high-quality yield. We consider the growing difficulty somewhere around the middle as its bushy growing pattern could present some issues for novice growers. They at least imply a need for a more refined strategy. The plants’ stretch is going to underperform – be prepared for that, especially since this bushy structure is uncommon in autoflowering strains. Overall, despite having Indica-leaning genetics (60/40), the plant’s growth pattern is more iconically Sativa.
GROWING TIPS: The strain can be grown in a greenhouse or outside, but Double Grape will thrive best in a warmer climate outside and reach a height of anywhere between 55 and 80 cm. The grower Mephisto recommends using 600-watt lights when grown indoors and keeping the plants in 12-liter plots where you can maximize the plants’ yields. We recommend low stress training or LST to get the most from your Double Grape plants.
The strain grows in a stocky, frosty tower of buds, with long, thin leaves and a coat of lavender crystals. The pistils are thick and curly and bright orange as they poke out against the leaves. The flavor of the strain has been described as being like a fizzy grape drink combined with herbs and earthy tones. Its delicious taste comes partly from its plentiful, sticky trichomes, though some users note that the scent of sweet blueberry sourness can give way to a funky aftertaste, almost like body odor.
Double Grape is great at making its consumers feel happy and mellow. It’s a chill-out strain and pairs perfectly with a stupid movie and a small group of friends. You probably won’t experience couchlock on Double Grape, so you don’t have to fear losing your edge if you plan to get intimate or chatty in the evening after a dose of Double Grape. Users report dry mouth and eyes on the strain at the same time they start to get hungry, so consider keeping snacks around and keeping your dosage under control until you know how this pungent fruity strain will affect you.
