Spinach describes the aroma and flavour profile as being a sharp citrus that reminds many users of freshly cut grapefruit. Combine this with it’s rare terpenes that include valencene, camphene, guaiol, fenchol and you can start to see why Spinach is so excited about his cultivar. The buds are suppose to be larger in size and very dense with a thick layer of sugary trichomes.

Spinach’s Atomic Sour Grapefruit arrived in an industry standard white plastic container with security lid. We popped off the top and it became very obvious why this strain was named as such. The aroma is a strong fresh citrusy smell with a hint of sweetness that clearly denotes an aroma very similar to grapefruit juice. However Spinach does not include humidity packs inside their containers which makes us wonder how much stronger the aroma could be if the buds were fresher.
We dumped out the containers and were pleased to see the contents were 2 medium to large sized buds. They were rock hard dense and also quite dry and flaky. However they were covered in a really thick trichome layer that blended nicely with the bright green colour tones mixed with orange hairs. The product looks great, but some points must be deducted due to the dryness… which is a common theme with this brand.
Given the dry state of the buds we were not sure how flavourful this would be, however we were pleasantly surprised with it’s strong taste. If you like fresh grapefruits or grapefruit juice then you’ll probably be right at home with this strain. Every toke is a strong fresh citrusy taste with a hint of sweetness. But without beating a dead horse on this issue we did find the smoke itself was a bit harsh and likely would be smoother is Spinach would include a humidity pack.
Our bag was part of lot number 005979 and packaged on November 18, 2021. Overall Atomic Sour Grapefruit from Spinach offers a nice experience at a decent price. Listed as having 22.7% THC content and a price of $31.95 for 3.5 grams, we found this cultivar delivered a very strong high that leaned heavily into a heavy body feeling that was combined with a moderately strong mental mist creating some difficulty maintaining train of thought. However if you’re a fan of cannabis with a distinct citrus element and looking for a decently priced indica then you’ll probably enjoy this one. We liked it more then many of their other products including Spinach’s Sensi Star and would rank it just a tick under 8.
