Grunk Medical Marijuana Strain Review

From:  Medicine on the Hill

Grade:  A-

Type: Hybrid – Grape Ape (Indica)  x Skunk#1 (typically heavy Sativa ranging in %)

Price: $20/gram

Appearance:  Beautiful, well manicured, crystal dipped buds.  They were nice and dry and they had hints of the Grape lineage signature color.

Aroma: Very Grape – some small hints of the classic skunk scent.

Taste:  Grape & Skunk (tasted more even split than it smelled)

Buzz Type: Instant starter that gave me a burst of energy, yet a bit too overwhelming to go out into the world with it at first.  Fuzzy headed and a bit dopey, my workload for the day had to suffer a brief delay so could recollect my bearings (a good hour).  When the “storm” calmed down a little I found no problem with function and motivation to get things done.  Drained when done though.

Buzz Length: 2 ½ hours with linger

Medicinal Use: (We are NOT doctors – personal opinion ONLY)   Worked very well for muscular pain with some nerve assistance as well (spinal compression).

Overall:  This is a top notch strain – great representation of its parents. It hits hard with huge expansion. It was strong but fun and made me want to go walking downtown. The only real negative thing I can say is I was left a little tired at the end of my session (the initial buzz is often the part people are looking for).

    I just picked some of this up from my caregiver and it is amazing. What’s weird is mine doesn’t have a grape-skunk smell. Well maybe a little. haha its hard to say. It looks exactly the same as your pictures though. It’s good stuff.

    Well I picked up a couple G’s of this mainly because it was chock FULL of red hairs and lots of crystals under the magnifying glass. I had never heard of it so I figured why not? $10/G.

    Appearance: As I mentioned, the appearance is quite nice, it’s so full of red hairs it’s pretty amazing. The buds are very dense and firm feeling.

    Scent of the dry meds in the jar: smells pretty mellow, kind of sweet yet woodsy/slight lemony/vick’s vapor smell at the end. Smells like a Haze but just maybe slight sweeter. Definitely a sativa smell.

    Taste when smoked: For being a hybrid of 2 really standout types of cannabis (Grape Ape x Skunk #1), it is very middle of the road as far as taste is concerned. I mean, there isn’t very much taste at all. Like a haze flavor, but more subtle. Barely noticeable flavor. Taste same on exhale as on inhale pretty much.

    Medicated experience/effects: Much like the smell and the taste, the buzz of this particular strain is rather sublime and barley noticeable (at least at first). It’s heady with a small amount of body in it. Rather upbeat like a daytime type strain when you need to do things but still want to be medicated.

    Overall rating: for a daytime strain I would give it a 4 out of 5. Or whenever you want to be functional it’s great. Problem is there’s not much euphoria or anything else going on here. I would never consider $20/G for this, not even $15/g.

    It’s an OK middle of the road modern strain. Best use is when you want to use medication without others knowing (being stealthy). Because there is very little smell and the effects are mild, it’s good for those types of situations.

    I probably won’t buy it again but maybe. No paranoia with this strain so far which is nice compared to some of the other sativa leaning strains.

    I just tried this strain grunk. I have been in Oregon for less than a month. I had been smoking some good herb from this medical dispensary mostly blackberry kush and girl scout cookies. My friend recommended grunk and said it was her favorite. I did not like very much. It did have a smooth taste that did not make me cough. However I did not get as high from this as the blackberry kush and girl scout cookies.
