This week we are reviewing Grape Wreck from ABC Cooperative in Garden Grove. I’ve driven past this collective many times headed to Zen O.C. and other nearby dispensaries, but I had no idea it existed until a few days ago. I get paid every other week, so I go from rich to poor and back in my weed habits pretty quick. Last week I was smoking $55 eighths; this week I have forty bucks to my name. After checking weedmaps for a menu fitting my tighter budget, I came across ABC Cooperative. They had a wide variety of strain prices, including several at $20 an eighth and under.
I chose an Indica dominant hybrid, as I tend to do, as well as a couch lock Indica, Blackberry OG. Each 1/8 cost me a twenty, and I felt like I made out well. Grape Wreck is a mix of Grape Ape and Trainwreck. A heavy Indica dominant hybrid, this strain will give a weighted stoned effect. I was often dazed and forgetful. Physically, the high was quite present as a pain killer. It wasn’t overpowering though, and of the two strains I picked up, I felt it was the better daytime pain relief. Thanks in part to the Trainwreck lineage, there is an uplifting, talkative quality as well.
The nuggets I got in my eighth weren’t spectacular or interesting. They were average in size for most dispensary strains, and although you could see a shine to them under the light, they weren’t very frosty. They were, however, very sticky to the touch and often pieces would stick to my fingers when I broke it up. It had a white grape scent, like a flavored cigarillo or a poor white wine. It was funky and sour smelling. Not very pleasant. However, for $20 an eighth, it is an exceptional deal. It took a bit extra to get a satisfactory high, but at that price, I didn’t feel guilty throwing it in a blunt or joint.
