About this Hybrid Strain
The cannabis strain God’s Gift is an indica-dominant hybrid bearing a mixed flavor of grapes and lavender with an undertone of diesel and aftertaste described as citrusy. Its smell is similar, often leaning more towards an over-ripe berry scent. When ready for harvest, its dense buds bare vibrant purple hues and overlaid with crystals.
Its parents are the strong and potent strains of Granddaddy Purple, an indica, and OG Kush, a hybrid. God’s Gift became popular in California in 2005 where it first blossomed.
God’s Gift is potent, with THC levels reaching an average of 18% and topping off at 22% in some crops. Its high is instantaneous, giving the consumer a full-bodied euphoric feel that reviewers note relieves aches and pains and for women, PMS symptoms. It does couch-lock and leaves most in a dream-like, sleepy stupor which makes this strain good for nighttime use.
Some reviewers have stated this strain will induce fits of giggles and/or immobilize the consumer into extreme relaxation and sleep.
This strain grows just above four feet and takes eight to nine weeks to flower, requiring little devotion during vegetation if grown indoors and making it a good crop for beginners.

Background and History
The God’s Gift strain first came on the scene in 2005 in dispensaries throughout California and instantly made its presence known.

God’s Gift’s Lineage
OG Kush and Granddaddy Purple
This strain can sometimes be referred to as God’s Gift kush, after its parent, however OG God’s Gift isn’t widely used.
It’s also worth mentioning that God’s Gift doesn’t have anything to do with Amazing Grace despite the two sharing somewhat of a religious theme in their titles.

God’s Gift is a very good-looking strain , in a somewhat psychedelic kind of way.
The strain’s prevailing color is a darkish, radiant shade of purple, with green and gray undertones, and contrasting orange pistils interlacing the dense buds throughout. Reflecting its THC abundance, the flowers are heavily covered with trichomes, adding a slightly frosty look to the whole picture which is prettier than a work of art.
The tasting notes of God’s Gift marijuana strain can best be described as “what you smell is what you get.”
Its divinity first wafts in the form of a grape and berry aromas, with a palpable touch of earthy herbs and a hint of sweet spice which are just enough to give the fruitiness a slight kick.
God’s Gift’s is very smooth-tasting weed and doesn’t cause any coughing. It has a berry flavor reminiscent of grape with lemon undertones, slight notes of fresh citrus, and an after-taste, that is like breathing in the forest morning freshness.
Citrusy undertones and aftertaste
Overall, God’s Gift is a very pleasant and refreshing weed to both taste and smell with tasting tones so balanced it is like enjoying a well-mixed cocktail.
God’s Gift is also very popular in a vaping oil form.

This strain gives you the gift of profound relaxation . It will put you in a state of such deep physical and mental comfort. “Disturbed” only by strong munchies, the only thing powerful enough to get you off the couch will be the pizza guy ringing your doorbell.
And while the full-bodied physical experience of God’s Gift will most definitely involve a couch, bed, or lying of some sort, this doesn’t go to say your mind will succumb to complete lethargy as well, even though focus and sharp wit are not among the gifts of this strain. This weed induces a trance-like state of deep peacefulness and happiness . It’s like a pair of rose-tinted glasses, a somewhat philosophical and dreamy perspective on life from which the world and your place in it are exactly where they’re supposed to be. The good only gets better. This deep, internal, overarching positivity is the essence of God’s Gift.
At times, this happiness can become overwhelming and just spill out of you in the form of uncontrollable giggles, especially if you happen to be watching something funny (but not necessarily, as the giggles may sneak up at any time).
As you might imagine, consuming God’s Gift when you have the stuff to do will only deliver the sense of God’s curse. This weed is perfect for the end of the day and suitable for mid-day only when you’ve crossed off almost everything from your to-do list. Even if you’re on vacation, it’s not a good idea to use God’s Gift if you’re planning to do some sightseeing, exploring, or pretty much anything that would require you to move around and/or be even partly clear-headed. If you do, make sure your smoke with caution – a small puff or two – anything else will incapacitate you in that sense.
Overall, God’s Gift is perfect for those seeking to truly relax, feel good, and do nothing else besides enjoying a head high vacation, even it’s just on the couch.
Needless to say, one of God’s Gift’s most precious properties for some is the gift of sleep. If you’re suffering from insomnia, there’s hardly a better solution than this indica strain. And generally speaking, sativa vs indica is a competitive contest on many levels, but when it comes to difficulties with sleeping , the winner is always indica.
God’s Gift can also be great for those with different kinds of aches, and not just because it has the power to knock them out. The strain has demonstrated strong and wide-ranging pain-relieving properties , helping people with arthritis, chronic pain, backaches, muscle spasms, inflammation, chemotherapy pain, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis.
Because God’s Gift’s power spans far beyond the physical realm, the deep inner peace, and happiness, or at the very least the elevated mood and spirit, can go a long way in people’s battles with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and PTSD.
Only a gift of the Gods can create a sense of holy divinity and only God's Gift strain has the effects to honor such a name. Enjoy insomnia relief and a relaxed high, but be aware of its couch-lock and sleep very, very well.
