There are so many cannabis strains present in the market today that it gets confusing (especially for new users) to choose the one they want. The most important thing required to buy a cannabis strain for consumption is to understand that strain from the inside out.
While there are so many strains out there, we decided to randomly pick one and tell you all about it. For this blog, we’ve chosen the strain – Granddaddy Purple. Let’s discover this strain in detail!
What is Granddaddy Purple?
Granddaddy Purple is also known as Grand Daddy Purps (or GDP). It combines two common strains, the Big Bud, and the Purple Urkle. The grape-oriented flavor of this strain is one of the many reasons why users prefer using it; many users enjoy its sleep-inducing effects at night.
This strain was created almost two decades ago in 2003 in California. The creator, Ken Estes, was experimenting with different strains and wanted to make an Indica using two of the most popular strains among users.
The Granddaddy Purple strain is among the very popular THC-induced strains that are perfect for consumption at night time. It contains anywhere between 17% and 23% of THC content which makes it moderately psychoactive.
Because Granddaddy Purple THC levels are moderate, this makes it a perfect strain for both new and old users. There is a negligible amount of CBD in this strain (less than 1%) which is why this recreational strain is not the best option if you are looking for therapeutic effects from your cannabis.
We mentioned that the strain is good for night time, since one of its key effects is sleepiness. Users often opt for it to counter insomnia or to have a sound sleep after a tiring day. Other effects of this strain include calmness and happiness, which further trigger a sounder sleep at night.
Although CBD is not present in this strain, the other compounds add some therapeutic effects to it like stress relief and can relieve chronic pain. According to a brief study, over 41% of the people said that the strain helped them in relieving stress while 35% experienced relief from chronic pain.
Aroma and Terpenes
The Granddaddy Purple strain is dominated by the terpene Myrcene which leads to its grape-like aroma and flavor. The strain may also contain hints of a berry-like flavor, which makes it even more fun to consume.
In a nutshell, Granddaddy Purple is a strain worth trying regardless of how old or new of a user you are. You are bound to fall in love with its calming, buzz-inducing, and sleep-triggering effects.
