Granddaddy Purple Marijuana Seeds Information
Swaggering deep purple nugs with light, sporadic neon green spots, Grandaddy Purple or GDP definitely deserves a spot on the list of royal indica dominant strains. Its dense and puffy buds usually bloom in 77 days. An offspring of Big Bud and Purple Urkle, this potent strain has inherited Purple Urkle’s pleasant fruity scent, while its other parent has passed down its humongous and compact bud stature. The Big Bud genes are largely responsible for the deep purple flowers dusted with an abundant frost-like resin.
Being dominated by indica genes, Granddaddy purple is a fast rising favorite for its fuzzy mind and body effects. Lavished with herbal, peppery and pine flavors, it is also known as “The Night time Strain” due to its relaxing capacity perfect for evening usage. It promises a great yield whether grown indoors or outdoors.
What are the Flavor and Effects of Granddaddy Purple?
Granddaddy Purple’s aroma is dominantly bitter and earthy, with a touch of sweetness reminiscent of honey and sugar. Its thick smoke will leave you stoned in less than 20 minutes. Like a granddad cozy in a rocking chair, you will succumb yourself to the relaxation and just let the chair sway for you. Your mind will start feeling empty since the strain’s genes have already cleared out the anxieties and negative thoughts. This is prior to the next and longer stage which is the heavy, satisfying body buzz. It’s a type of heaviness that you don’t want to go away.
What are the Medical Benefits of Granddaddy Purple?
The Granddaddy Purple will not be dubbed as “The Night time strain” for nothing. It was called as such due to its ability to combat known sleep disorders. In just a few huffs, the indica properties can provide instant yawns in just a few huffs, helping insomnia patients hit the sack easily. Aside from sleep-related issues, it delivers joint pain relief, nausea, and migraines. It is also a proven mood booster used by Bipolar Disorder, anxiety and depression patients.
Negative Effects you Can Expect from Granddaddy Purple
Granddaddy Purple’s pleasing effects are just as instant as the negative ones. Multiple dry mouth and dry eyes cases have been reported. It can also trigger nervousness and edginess in anxiety patients. While it can provide pain relief, too much of it can be a boomerang of dizziness, nausea and headache.
How to Grow Granddaddy Purple? Some information and Tips
Granddaddy Purple shares its love for organic soil with its potent parent strains. The ideal growing temperature should never exceed 80 degrees Fahrenheit during the day (between 75 to 80 degrees will do), and 50 degrees Fahrenheit at night time.
While a known snob to molds, it can develop powdery mildew if you failed to watch the humidity level. It should never go above the average level. Be careful of drowning the plants as well. Watering should be only once every 4 – 5 days.
If grown indoors, this strain can stretch up to 3 feet. Outdoors, it can boast an amazing 8 feet. Expect huge and heavy buds which will require extra love and care. In the late stage of flowering, you can expose it to a colder temperature because this is when the beautiful purple hue appears.
