The cannabis strain Granddaddy Purple (aka Grand Daddy Purps) is an indica that emits a sweet berry fragrance and leaves consumers experiencing a grape aftertaste. It’s a striking strain, with deep and dark purple buds surrounded with bright orange hairs and a plethora of white trichomes.
Its parents are both indica strains: Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This strain is exceptionally similar to Grape Ape and legend has it the two could be the same. However, it was first created in 2003 by Ken Estes in California when he decided he wished to create a new and remarkable indica using two strains that were already renowned for their effects.
Its THC level is usually 17% with some crops topping off at 23%. Grand Daddy Purple creates an extremely relaxing body buzz that leaves the mind in a euphoric state. It’s best to consume this strain at night, being an excellent choice to help aid sleep and tension in the body.
This strain relieves restless leg syndrome for a comfortable night’s rest and elevates appetite.
Grand Daddy Purple is best grown indoors with a flowering time of around 10-11 weeks. Its oversized buds will weigh the plant’s structure down, so the plants will need extra support. Yields range from four ounces to three pounds per plant depending on quality and crop.
