about granddaddy purple strain
Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple strain (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.
granddaddy purple strain review
Effects: Perfect for nighttime use, Grand Daddy Purple strain hits both the body and mind initially but quickly fades into a smooth body buzz as most heavy Indicas do. For patients, Granddaddy Purps is ideal for pain management. It can also be effective at treating insomnia, depression, and anxiety. Novice users beware though, this strain can pack a powerful punch. We’d recommend starting with a hit or two and waiting a few minutes before opting to consume more
granddaddy purple grow info
Granddaddy Purple strain grows best indoors but can be grown outside as well. Flowering commences usually around 70-77 days when grown indoors and growers can expect harvest in early October when grown outdoors. The oversized buds may begin to weigh down the plant, especially if grown outdoors. When grown indoors the plant should be short and stocky enough to hold the weight but you may want to prepare to offer some support around the 60-day mark if you notice the buds beginning to wear down the plant’s frame. Yields can top 4 ounces per plant on an indoor grow and well over 3 pounds per plant on an outdoor grow. For optimal results keep temperatures within the ’70s throughout the grow cycle and keep humidity between 50-55%.
