If you’re a first time grower and looking for something to boost your confidence, Grapefruit Auto is a great place to start - a sturdy enough strain to withstand a blunder or two, requiring little to no maintenance as the plants mature.
A happy, stress-relieving strain with a medium THC level of around 15% - 19%, this swift hybrid is ideal for those looking for energetic effects in their weed - less so for those with chronic physical pain.
Flavor and Fragrance of Grapefruit
Take a bite of a juicy pink grapefruit, and consider the flavor. That’s what you get with a toke of this strain: sweet and bitter, tangy and fruity, tropical with a citrus twist. Grapefruit Autoflower lends her beautiful aroma to any room she grows in, and when cured properly will have you sniffing the bag in anticipation - probably more than once.
Light up, and you’ll find a lingering grapefruit scent released, fading to paler citrus notes. Though the aroma is stronger than the taste, you’ll still find yourself salivating at the bitter citrus sweet-sour tang of Grapefruit Auto, taking in a tropical sensation with each inhalation. It’s hard to stop at one, with this cannabis.
With a terp profile high in myrcene and caryophyllene, there are definite herby and peppery undertones to the fruitiness that nicely accentuate the rich grapefruit flavor this strain is named for.
An uplifting, energy boosting strain, it’s no wonder Grapefruit Autoflower is popular amongst daytime smokers who want to kick-start a busy day.

If you’re sensitive to THC or new to the cannabis community, you might find switching to a lighter strain is more for you - with THC levels of around 19%, Grapefruit is pretty potent. Severe reactions include mild headaches, anxiety or paranoia, but these can be avoided by monitoring your own tolerance and pacing yourself as you smoke.
Medical Uses of Grapefruit Autoflower
Since Grapefruit’s CBD levels are relatively low at 0.4%, those suffering with more chronic physical ailments should look for a more Indica-dominant strain for relief. Having said that, this strain is ever-popular for her analgesic and anti-inflammatory components and can be used with great effect for those suffering with joint pain, inflammation, arthritis and menstrual cramps.
As for mental health benefits, this is an excellent strain to choose. Grapefruit Auto's euphoric high lends itself to relieving low mood, symptoms of depression, PTSD, stress and anxiety - her Sativa dominance clearing the way for productivity without intrusive thoughts.
Like many strains of marijuana, there are potential adverse effects for those who are careless when consuming this strain, and if you want to avoid the typical bloodshot/dry eyes and mouth, we recommend drinking plenty of water before, during and after use.
Growing Grapefruit Autoflower
With a plentiful yield after only 8 to 9 weeks, Grapefruit Autoflower is one of the best strains to grow at home. She's a particularly versatile strain of cannabis with a strong, sturdy structure that allows her to thrive in almost any growing setup.
Indoor growing requires proper ventilation, a temperature of between 70° and 80°F and humidity levels of below 50% - but aside from those few environmental factors, you can pretty much leave this strain to her own devices and still harvest a yield of 1.3 to 2 ounces per square foot in a simple Sea of Green setup.
Mimicking a Mediterranean climate is key here to ensure the plant grows optimally to her full, mint green and bushy potential. If the environment is well maintained, you should find yourself with vivid green buds covered in snowy crystal trichomes that only serve to sell you on Grapefruit Auto’s power.
A little trimming and monitoring of the crop is required from time to time as the plants mature to ensure proper heat and light reaches all the right places, and soon you’ll find yourself with up to 10.5 ounces per plant.
Since Grapefruit Auto, like many autoflowering strains, is fairly small and never grows to any notable height, she's an ideal strain for stealth growers. This is also a great strain for growing in greenhouses, but as we said before - keep the temperature and humidity steady and you’re good either way. With proper nutrients and water, expect to find thick, sticky, resin-coated buds in no time.
Struggling to get up in the mornings and find the energy? A splash of water to the face or the strongest, darkest coffee won’t quite do it like a toke of Grapefruit Autoflower. Roll up a joint of this ganja the night before and find yourself buzzing with life when you wake up and smoke this tasty, tropical treat.
Bitter and sweet at once, Grapefruit was well named for her tangy sweet citrus taste and fruity, herbal smoke. It’s a strain with a flavor that grows on you, begging you to come back again and again.
A potent cerebral high that lightens the body and fills you with creative energy, this is the strain for productivity and positivity. Lacking in the couchlock that often reduces motivation, Grapefruit Autoflower is a Sativa dream of tasty citrus energy and light.
Due to intense mood-lifting, brightening effects, this is the ideal marijuana for those struggling with mental health issues that are based in negative intrusive thoughts, clearing the mind and encouraging activity and reflection. Symptoms of depression, stress, anxiety and PTSD can be alleviated with just a few tokes of this delicious specimen.
Since these seeds are autoflowering, you’ll find even the newest of newbies can manage Grapefruit Auto well enough with just a little love and care to maintain the plant’s temperature and humidity. Don’t expect this cannabis to grow particularly tall, but nevertheless the bounty is plentiful, and you’ll have enough buds for a year long supply ready to harvest in less than 10 weeks.
