Skywalker is a popular strain across the United States, a hybrid with an even 50:50 sativa/indica ratio. Its THC levels top off at about 15 percent, making this an average to below-average strain in terms of potency. But it makes up for that with its mellow body high and mental clarity, plus a pleasing aroma and flavor. It's a cross of Blueberry and Mazar-I-Sharif, both famous strains in their own right. The high is mostly relaxed, with euphoria and a mood boost. This is a good strain for insomnia, as well as anxiety, ADHD, bipolar disorder, migraines, and PMS. It's particularly effective at pain relief. Dry mouth and red eyes are likely, while other adverse are much more limited. The taste of this strain is pungent and sweet, with earthy tones. Skywalker is most commonly found on the West Coast, in Arizona, and in Colorado. But it's relatively easy to find on any legal market, as well as the black market in many parts of the country. The indica stress relief of this versatile strain make it a good choice for patients looking for a break.
Grape Ape is a mostly indica crossbreed of Mendocino Purps, Skunk, and original Afghani. It shares their potency, with THC levels as high as 18-21%, which makes it a relatively strong – but not overpowering – tool for treating disease. As its name suggests, Grape Ape tastes and smells like sweet grapes, with a subtle berry flavor. Like its Purple ancestors, this strain develops a deep purple bud and leaves to go with its grape-like qualities. It's most useful in treating chronic pain, including migraines and arthritis, though it also helps relieve anxiety, depression, and PTSD. The high is profoundly relaxing, a full-body experience that can lead to strong couch-lock and deep sleep. This is definitely a nighttime strain, as it can have a near-comatose effect. But the high can also be euphoric and focused, with a clear mind. Dry mouth is common, as are red eyes. Most easily found on the West Coast, in Colorado, and in Michigan, this popular strain can also be purchased across the country, on both legal and black markets. It's a relatively easy strain to grow.
