Granddaddy Purple is one of the most demanded after Indica strains due to it’s Hollywood look, aesthetic 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 will 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 will hit both the body and mind initially but quickly fades into a smooth body buzz as most heavy Indicas do. For patients, Granddaddy Purple is ideal for pain, sleep, and stress management. It can also be effective in 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.
The product of Grand Daddy Purple is a spitting image of its 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.
