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.
