Introduced in 2003 by Ken Estes, Granddaddy Purple (or GDP) is a prominent indica
spin-off of Purple Urkle
and Big Bud
. This California staple derives an intricate grape and berry fragrance from its Purple Urkle predecessor, while Big Bud passes on its oversized, compact bud structure. GDP plants bloom in shades of deep purple, a contrastive backdrop for its snow-like dusting of white crystal resin.
Its powerful effects tend to be clearly detectable in both mind and body, delivering a fusion of transcending euphoria and physical relaxation. While your thoughts may float in a dreamlike buzz, your body is more likely to locate itself fixed in one spot for the duration of GDP's effects. Like many heavy indica varieties, Granddaddy Purple is usually pulled off the shelf for users looking to combat pain
, appetite loss, and muscle spasms. GDP blesses growers with massive commercial harvests which tend to be ready for yield following a 60 day growing period indoors.
