Granddaddy Purple Strain
Granddaddy Purple, AKA GDP, or Gran Daddy Purps is a famous 100% pure indica cross of Big Bud and Purple Urkle. Ken Estes, a breeder in the San Francisco Bay Area is credited with creating Granddaddy Purple in 2003. Ken developed GDP in his search for a strain that was easy to grow and delivered much-needed pain relief. Many people use Gran Daddy as a potent sedative. Granddaddy Purple is one of the most popular indica strains on the west coast and is possibly the most well known ‘purple’ cannabis strain in the United States. GDP won first place for Best U.S. Indica in 2015 at the Denver High Times Cannabis Cup.
Grandaddy’s buds are known for their attractive appearance. The flowers are varying shades of purple with bright orange and red hairs. Nugs are incredibly compact and fuzzy with seductive purple hues and a generous covering of trichomes that run throughout. GDP is an extremely photogenic strain with great bag appeal.
Granddaddy Purple has a strong and distinct aroma of grapes and a sweet marshmallow berry scent. The smoke tastes like an earthy pinecone mixed with a sweet and floral fruity punch. Some people have also described the exhale as having a skunky grape popsicle taste.
Myrcene is the dominant terpene in GDP with supporting amounts of caryophyllene and pinene. The terpene profile of Grand Daddy Purple had an intense berry quality. Couple this with significant pain-relieving and stomach easing effects, GDP is perfect for patients looking for a relaxing session that provides relief to many ailments.
GDP is also beneficial for those who suffer from irregular sleep patterns, it relaxes both the mind and body. Gran Daddy Purps has a THC content of 22%. CBD is .03%. For cancer patients, it has also proven to help reduce nausea brought on by radiation and chemotherapy. This strain has the feature of helping to restore appetite in those who are under medication or suffer from anorexia nervosa.
This strain has a serious kick and its psychoactive effects are detectable in both body and mind. It manages to deliver a powerful feeling of physical relaxation and cerebral euphoria. Grand Daddy Purple produces a mellow psychedelic high that improves mood and evokes giggles. You’ll find yourself fixed in place while your thoughts drift on a dreamy cloud for several hours. Just like any other indica dominant strain, it’s primarily used for relaxation. The strain is useful for patients experiencing appetite loss, pain, insomnia, muscle spasms, and stress.
Growing the Granddaddy Purple Strain
Grandaddy Purple yields massive dense buds that are ready after 60-75 days of indoor flowering. Moderately resistant to common diseases, Grand Daddy Purple is quite easy to grow. Try to pay attention to the humidity levels, which it prefers at about 50%. GDP plants favor a well-ventilated space for growth and can be trimmed to create more room to breathe and flourish. Indoor and outdoor plants grow bushy and produce an average yield of 500g/ plant. Outside, it’s ready for harvest around Mid-October. Lowering the temperature in the grow room during the final weeks of flowering will produce a more vivid purple color in the spectacular colas. Just keep temperatures above 14 degrees Celsius / 57 F during that time.

Waited for a while to get the seeds they got caught up in the mail traffic but received them and I planted 1 of the 3 I purchased because I am a first time grower. Sprouted no problems and now she's 8 weeks old time to transfer to larger pot. I would definitely buy from Seed King again.
