Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple (or GDP) is a famous indica cross of Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This California staple inherits a complex grape and berry aroma from its Purple Urkle parent, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure. GDP flowers bloom in shades of deep purple, a contrasting backdrop for its snow-like dusting of white crystal resin.
Its potent effects are clearly detectable in both mind and body, delivering a fusion of cerebral euphoria and physical relaxation. While your thoughts may float in a dreamy buzz, your body is more likely to find itself fixed in one spot for the duration of GDP’s effects. Granddaddy Purple is typically pulled off the shelf for consumers looking to combat pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss, and muscle spasms. GDP blesses growers with massive yields which are ready for harvest following a 60 day flowering time indoors.
Grandaddy Purple is the result of crossing Purple Urkle and Big Bud. It is a predominantly Indica F1 strain suitable for cultivation indoors and outdoors which finishes quickly and producing very high levels of THC.
These plants look really beautiful with assorted purple shades of the buds overlain with a frosty white coating of resin. Indoors plants will be ready after 7 weeks of flowering, sometimes a bit quicker, with yields between 350 – 400 gr/m2. Outdoors, where plants are ready for the chop in late September, yields can get quite impressive. Mold resistance is good, despite its dense buds, helping in marginal growing zones. Feeding requirements are moderate so don’t overdo things in this respect indoors or outdoors.
Grandaddy Purple has a tempting aroma and taste; grapes and berries abound on the palate. THC production varies between 23 – 28% giving a wonderful fusion of cerebrally stimulating yet physically relaxing effects. Prepare to float whilst firmly fixed to the couch.
Therapeutically this strain is useful for treating the symptoms of pain, stress, insomnia, loss of appetite and for relieving muscle spasms.
