Though it is agonizing for the angel, it is possible for an angel's grace to be removed, either voluntarily or by force and in either [[vessels]] or in their true forms. It is viewed as a serious crime for angels to remove their own grace, one that by Heaven's laws, requires the angel in question to be punished either via execution or imprisonment and torture. Anna even compared it to first-degree murder for humans.<ref name="four10" /> The forcible removal of grace is viewed in a similar light, as Castiel was disgusted with himself when he did it to Theo, calling it "barbaric",<ref name="nine09">''[[Holy Terror]]''</ref> and later in the series likened it to cannibalism.<ref name="thirteen12">''[[Various & Sundry Villains]]''</ref>

Angels who lose their grace fall to Earth and essentially become [[humans]]. If the angel in question is [[Possession|possessing]] a vessel at the time they lose their grace, they are then locked into their vessel until death.<ref name="eight23">''[[Sacrifice]]''</ref> If, however, the angel does not have a vessel, they are reborn to human parents through a human body of their own. In the case of Anna Milton, who was reborn with her own body, she gradually lost her memories of being an angel as she grew up human, but it is unknown if she deliberately repressed her memories or if this happens over time to all angels who lose their grace.<ref name="four10" /> Regardless, angels who lose their grace become subject to human emotions, urges, and weaknesses. Other angels may still recognize an angel who has lost their grace, but will be able to tell that they are no longer truly an angel.<ref name="nine03">''[[I'm No Angel]]''</ref>

In [[Stranger in a Strange Land]], Castiel stated that Jack's grace would regenerate in time, implying that if only part of angel's or nephilim's grace removed, it will be regenerate to its original power over time. In [[Gods and Monsters]], Castiel expressed a belief that Jack's human heritage is slowing the process of his grace recharging.

The effects of Grace removal is different to a degree for angels and nephilim. However, the one thing to be sure is that their graces removal renders both species powerless. While after an angels Grace is removed, they are rendered human and therefore locked into their vessel until death assuming their grace is removed while they are in inside their vessels at the time, or they will be reborn to human parents with a body of their own if they were not inside a vessel at the time, a nephilim is shown to not be rendered human when their grace is removed as it is revealed that their grace recharges in time. Additionally as they are half human, half angel, a nephilims grace is what keeps both halves in balance and without it their cells will begin to destroy each other, eventually killing the nephilim whose grace has been removed from them.
