Of all heavy indica’s, the Granddaddy Purple (aka Grandad Purp is certainly one of the finest.
The strain was said to be produced by Ken Estes in San Francisco’s Bay Area way back in 2003. They set out to produce (what they expected to be) the perfect Indica hybrid by merging Big Bird and Purple Urkle.
Other than being a very sought after indica for those in need of a great nights sleep, the buds are famously beautiful.
Created back in 2003 by Ken Estes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ken and his team sought out to create the ultimate Indica hybrid by merging two strains with fantastic genetics – Purple Urkle and Big Bud. The product of these two, Grand Daddy Purple, is a spitting image of it’s 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.
The first thing you’ll notice from the buds of GDP is their size – then you’ll see the purple.
Famously, the appearance of this strain makes it one of the most photographed cannabis strains on earth, and if you manage to score some, you’ll be amazed at how beaututful they are.
Other than being giant, the buds are often purple in colour with a splash of green and burning orange pistils. The buds are smathered in a milky layer of THC trichomes which add the potency, but a beautiful shimmer.
