Grandaddy Purple, also known as Grand Daddy Purp, Granddaddy Purps, GDP, or Granddaddy Purple Kush, is a well-known cannabis strain in the UK. This powerful and relaxing indica-dominant hybrid has a rich history and is loved by many. With a short flowering time of 8-9 weeks, it is a popular choice for growers.
While Grandaddy Purple can be grown both indoors and outdoors, it is best suited for indoor cultivation. The plant produces extra large buds, which may become burdensome if grown outdoors. However, if grown indoors, the plant should be short and stocky enough to handle the weight of the buds. To optimize growth, techniques such as LST (low stress training), SoG (sea of green), or ScroG (screen of green) are recommended.
When consumed, Grandaddy Purple initially provides a mind and body high, but it gradually transitions into a smooth physical relaxation, typical of heavy indica strains. It induces a classic couch-lock feeling that is cherished by indica enthusiasts.
