Buy Grand Daddy Purple online
Grand Daddy Purple 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.
Perfect for nighttime use, Grand Daddy Purple hits both the body and mind initially but quickly fades into a smooth body buzz like most heavy indicas do. It brings on the classic indica couch-lock feeling and can even promote feelings of numbness in the body. It’s immensely relaxing and perfect for ending the day.
For medical cannabis patients, Granddaddy Purps is ideal for pain management. It can also reported to be effective at 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.
Granddaddy Purple grows best indoors but can be grown outside as well. Flowering commences usually around 70-77 days when grown indoors and growers can expect harvest in early October when grown outdoors. The over-sized buds may begin to weigh down the plant, especially if grown outdoors. When grown indoors the plant should be short and stocky enough to hold the weight but you may want to prepare to offer some support around the 60-day mark if you notice the buds beginning to wear down the plant’s frame. Yields can top 4 ounces per plant on an indoor grow and well over 3 pounds per plant on an outdoor grow. For optimal results keep temperatures within the 70’s throughout the grow cycle and keep humidity between 50-55%.
