About Granddaddy Purple
Created back in 2003 by Ken Estes in the San Francisco Bay Area, Ken and his team sought to create the ultimate Indica hybrid by merging two strains with fantastic genetics – Purple Urkle and Big Bud. Granddaddy Purple the product of these two, Granddaddy 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.

Granddaddy Purple strain
Granddaddy Purple from San Francisco down to Los Angeles, Granddaddy Purple is one of the most sought-after Indica strains due to its Hollywood looks 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 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, and taste. And effects that they are simply confused with one another by growers, dispensaries, and consumers alike.
Perfect for nighttime use. Grand Daddy Purple hits 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 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
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 oversized 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 its 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 ’70s throughout the growth cycle and keep humidity between 50-55%.
