While Granddaddy Purple may be known by many a name [Grand Daddy Purp, GDP, Graddaddy Purple Kush], there is definitely no confusing the unique characteristics that made it one of the most popular strains on the USA west coast since its creation in 2003 after Ken Estes decided to cross Purple Urkle and Big Bud.
Gazing upon the Grandaddy buds, you’ll be intrigued by the deep purple hue accentuated by orange hairs and glistening trichomes. It’s almost too pretty to consume. Almost. You won’t regret trying the Ol’ Purp though with a wash of both body and mind high to start things off before culminating in a predominant body buzz synonymous to Indicas. It can also bring on quite the sleep spell, which is why most prefer enjoying it in the evening or before bedtime.
