Cannabis Strains for Grape Lovers

There are many scents and flavors associated with cannabis, but grape may not be one of them. However, cannabis cultivars offer a huge array of flavors and aromas, and that includes grape. 

What Makes Marijuana Strains Taste Like Grape?

Some of the same terpenes that give grapes (and the things we make from grapes like wine and jelly) their delicious flavor are also present in some marijuana strains. Typically, these terpenes are linalool, geraniol, and nerol, and once a strain has them, growers can work to breed these strains with other strains, producing cannabis that is sweet in both smell and flavor and sought after by cannabis connoisseurs.

In addition to their grape flavor, many of these strains have rich, purple buds in varying shades, including lavender and deep violet. But color doesn’t necessarily mean that the cannabis will taste like grape. Some of the most popular grape-flavored strains, including Grape Stomper, have bright, orange hairs! Like with books, you can’t always tell marijuana flavor by its “cover.”

What Strains Taste Like Grape?

If you’re interested in trying grape-flavored cannabis, we’ve got a few strains for your juicy journey.

Grape Stomper aka Sour Grapes

Sativa-Dominant Hybrid

We’ve already mentioned this hybrid strain once, and there’s good reason to mention it again. It has a strong, fruity aroma and is packed with the myrcene terpene, though it also contains limonene and caryophyllene. Because of this, don’t be surprised if you notice some citrus-y notes when enjoying this marijuana flower.

Grape Ape

Indica-Dominant Hybrid

When this flower bud’s leaves turn a deep, dark purple, it’s time to harvest. Grape Ape is a mostly indica strain that, like Grape Stomper, is rich in myrcene. Grape Ape’s grape flavor makes it a sure pick for this list.

Grape Pie

Indica-Dominant Hybrid

If you like your grape-tasting marijuana with a little bit of a tang, look no further than Grape Pie. This hybrid is both sour and sugary, making it the perfect cannabis for anyone who loves sour candies. There’s a good chance that Grape Pie can attribute that zest in its flavor to the fact that it is rich in limonene. Watch out for this one though. With the potential to have approximately 22% THC, it packs a punch if you aren’t careful about your dosing.

Grape Soda

Indica-Dominant Hybrid

Another purple-budded hybrid, Grape Soda is both sweet and pungent, with the grape flavor you’re craving and just a slight citrus twist to it. While this strain is myrcene dominant, it also has caryophyllene and limonene in it.

Granddaddy Purple or GDP, Granddaddy Purps


Granddaddy Purple - known by a variety of other names - is one of the most popular indicas around. Its parent strains are Mendo Purps, Skunk, and Afghanistan, and it creates a deep purple flower with oversized, compact buds. Growers love this strain because it produces a hefty amount of flower for harvesting.
