Grapefruit is a longtime marijuana classic, a heady blend of the hybrid Cinderella 99 and a sativa bred specifically for its grapefruit flavor.
With a sativa/indica ratio of 70:30, this strain packs a decidedly cerebral punch, with a major mood boost and intense euphoria. THC levels have been charted at 20%, so this is a pretty powerful strain.
CBD levels, meanwhile, are very low, ruling this out as an effective treatment for epilepsy. But it’s highly effective at relieving anxiety and depression, as well as pain, GI distress, and PMS. The sweet taste and smell of grapefruit are dominant, though there are also hints of other citrus fruits.
Adverse effects are usually quite limited, though dry mouth and red eyes are possible. Dizziness and paranoia are more rare. Grapefruit is common across the country, sold largely on the basis of its unique flavor and aroma.
It’s most popular in Colorado and on the West Coast, though it can also be found in other legal markets and the black market. This strain is highly appealing to smokers looking for a strong head high, less so to patients seeking physical effects.

Beyond that, details about this strain are somewhat unreliable. It’s reputed to be a sativa-dominant hybrid with a sativa/indica ratio of 35:65. But the effects suggest an even closer match, as Guava Kush delivers a true mix of physical and cerebral high: relaxing, creative, tingly, sociable, and occasionally sleepy.
Side effects could include paranoia, dry eyes, or dry mouth, though there’s little public information on the subject. Chronic pain, insomnia, and anxiety may all be treated with this strain.

Found almost exclusively in Los Angeles and Oregon, this strain is worth a try, if only for bragging rights.
