Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple (or GDP) is a famous indica cross between 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 contrastive 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. Like most heavy indica varieties, 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 commercial yields which are ready for harvest following a 60 day flowering time indoors.
Look – Nice thick buds with shades of purple. Great trichome coverage, with orange hairs to compliment.
Smell – Grand Daddy Purple smells very fruity and grapey. Just like the Purple Erkle, if purple had a smell, this would be it.
Taste – A very smooth grapey, purple taste. Very fruity.
Effects – For an Indica Grand Daddy Purple is very uplifting, but still gives you the Indica relaxation.
