Granddaddy Purple is a stem from the Indica cannabis line and was introduced to the world in 2003 by Ken Estes. It is normally known as GDP and it has been created by a crossover between Purple Urkel and Big Bud. This would explain some of the characteristics that have been handed over to the child of the two big parents: it has inherited the grape and berry aroma from Purple Urkel and its oversized bud structure from Big Bud. It produces lovely flowers of purple where it grows in the state of California. The crystal white resin itself takes on a snowy white texture and color.
The effects that have been linked to Granddaddy Purple have been classified as ‘psychoactive’ and extremely potent. They can be detected from within the mind as well as from the physical characteristics of the body. The mind starts to fly and escape due to the heavy mental euphoria that it has experienced, but the body stays in one place in a state of total relaxation. People often use it for medical reasons because of these calming benefits. It has the ability to treat pain, stress, insomnia, and appetite loss. It has also been known to send the body’s muscles into a tranquil realm which is when it is used to treat things like muscle spasms.
