Grand Daddy Purple


Grand Daddy Purple or Granddaddy Purple or Grand Daddy Purps, or simply the GDP, is an Indica dominant hybrid strain originating from Purple Urkle and Big Bud. It is made up of 70% Indica and 30% Sativa. GDP is an award-winner strain, having won first place in the 2015 Denver High Times Cannabis Cup for the best Indica strain in the U.S.

GDP is best known for its high potency. The strain’s average THC value is 23%, but some have topped with a whopping 27%. It is not a strain for novice users because of its high potency. If you are just beginning, take small doses first to know how the body will adapt to its effects.

Granddaddy Purple produces a short compact plant with small spaces between the nodes. At flowering, the leaves show tones of blue, purple, green, and orange. It is best cultivated indoors where growth conditions can be best controlled, taking about 65 days to mature. But GDP can also grow outdoors where it is ready for harvesting in late September or early October. You can expect a yield of about 4 ounces per plant when grown indoors and about 3 pounds when grown outdoors.

This strain has a complex grape and berry aroma inherited from its parents. The taste is also that of a super sweet grape with a pungent aftertaste. The GDP high hits fast with a rush of cerebral stimulation that leaves you euphoric and slightly numbed. This is followed by a psychedelic effect that will leave your body relaxed and peaceful. You are likely to remain couch-locked for the entire time when high with this strain.

The Grand Daddy Purple is for patients looking to relieve pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss, and other chronic conditions.
