Grand Daddy Purple Strain Information :
Grand Daddy Purple cannabis strain (aka Grand Daddy Purps) is one of the most popular Indica strains on the west coast. And is perhaps the most well known ‘purple’ cannabis strain in the US.
Created back in 2003 by Ken Estes in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ken and his team sought out to create the ultimate Indica hybrid by merging two strains with fantastic genetics. Purple Urkle and Big Bud.
The product of these two, Grand Daddy Purple cannabis, is a spitting image of it’s parents’ two best qualities – the deep and dark purple hue from Purple Urkle and the overgrown, dense buds of Big Bud.
The dark purple buds blend well with the bright orange hairs and frosted white trichomes that generously cover the bud making it an extremely photogenic strain.
From San Francisco down to Los Angeles, Grand Daddy Purple is one of the most sought after Indica strains due to it’s Hollywood looks and classic Indica effects. Despite this popularity, however, many growers and those working in the dispensary world have claimed that Grand Daddy Purps is almost identical to another famous purple strain – Grape Ape.
Some even go so far as to speculate that these two strains may be in fact the same. Others simply say that they are so eerily similar in lineage, look, taste, and effects that they are simply confused with one another by growers, dispensaries, and consumers alike.
Perfect for night time use Grand Daddy Purple cannabis strain hits both the body and mind initially but quickly fades into a smooth body buzz like most heavy Indicas do. For patients Grand Daddy Purps is ideal for pain management.
It can also be effective at treating:
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.
If you’ve been searching for a Grand Daddy Purple strain that is true to its name in regards to its earthy skunked out terpene profile and that strong heavy indica high, look no further. Tyson Farms always with the careful attention to detail on any strain but especially when it comes to original indica’s like this one, which was crossbred in 2003. Being a three way cross between Mendo Purp, Skunk and Afghani it gives the flower a very strong and versatile high from both the potency of the terpenes and the strength in the high level of THC (especially when produced by Tyson Farms), which offer huge waves of euphoric relief from stress, anxiety and ends up slowly creeping into the nervous system calming muscles and slowing the thought process, heart rate and delivering complete relaxation throughout the entire body. This batch is super dense and dank, covered in sugary translucent trichomes from bud to stalk. A mixture of very dark purples and dark forest greens almost look layered in between each other and the few deep orange hairs that are on the buds tend to hide more close to the centre of the bud compared to wrapping around them. Buds bust up into massive piles which stay incredibly sticky and light up immediately once touched by flame. Excellent batch – burns really clean with a very light grey almost silver ash, a bit of coughing induced from the heavy thick and strong smoke, with a smooth and consistent burn from bud to ash.
