Grimace is an aptly named Indica-dominant hybrid strain of cannabis that looks much like its namesake. Information regarding this stain is hard to come by as it is often confused for Grimace OG, another similar strain. Although nothing is known about this strain’s original breeder or the genetics behind it, we do know that the effects of this flower are Indica-leaning. In addition to these powerful soothing body effects, Grimace also packs a THC concentration that averages at 19%, but has tested as high as 25%.
Although the potency of the THC found in this flower is quite dependent on harvest, the visuals are standard across the board. Expect Grimace buds to be plump, purple nuggets of juicy chronic. Expect these buds to be not just purple, but deep shades of indigo and blue that are almost black in the right light. These incredibly dark buds look just the like the namesake cartoon character. They are, however, often covered in fuzzy orange hairs and a generous heaping of tiny crystal trichomes.
The first time many people hear this strain’s name, they often think the smell will leave them with a nasty look on their face. However, the complete opposite is true with this strain. Grimace buds smell incredibly unique and powerful. You should expect a wide range of scents including sweet earthy grapes with kicks of super sour lime. The flavor of the flower is quite similar, as sweet earthy inhales translate into flowery and spicy exhales that leave a taste of sweet lime and menthol on your palate.
Because Grimace is an Indica-leaning hybrid strain, it is best used in the afternoon or the evening. At the end of an incredibly long Friday, when you’re looking to kick your shoes off and put your feet up for some sweet relaxation, Grimace is right there. This strain is incredibly enjoyable for those who are looking to destress and relax after an incredibly taxing work week. The flower not only soothes your physical woes, it also manages to boost your spirits. Many have reviewed this strain, citing the uplifting effects of this strain to be some of its best qualities.
Grimace is the ideal strain for medical cannabis patients who find themselves suffering from insomnia and depression, in addition to chronic stress and pain. These individuals benefit highly from the strain’s incredible relaxing effects and its happy, social cerebral high. However, some users have reported that smoking a bit too much of this strain can leave you feeling quite dizzy and light-headed.
