Grand Daddy Purple
California in 2003 by breeder Ken Estes. A cross between Purple Urkle and Big Bud, GDP was then backcrossed into itself.
Available in clone form from Northern California’s Dark Heart Nursery, the strain produces short, compact plants with tight internodal spacing. During its flowering cycle, leaves tend to display intense shades of purple, blue, green and orange.
Granddaddy Purple can be cultivated indoors or out, but grows best in a climate-controlled environment. While the flowering cycle takes roughly 65 days to complete when cultivated indoors, outdoor growers can expect to harvest by late September or early October in the Northern Hemisphere, and late March to early April in the Southern Hemisphere.
A genetic winner, GDP’s buds won first place in 2015 at the Denver High Times Cannabis Cup for Best U.S. Indica.
Granddaddy Purple has an average THC content of roughly 17 percent, and is typically high in Caryophyllene, alpha-Pinene, and Humulene.
