Before Cookies came at the scene of popular cannabis/marijuana strains, for more than five years, Grandaddy Purple was the choice of cannabis indica for the masses. Created by Ken Estes, this strain is primarily known for its big purple buds all over the world.
Mr. Estes created it with blending and making a genetic mix of cannabis strains called Purple Urkle and Big Bud. Naturally, this strain shares some qualities and characteristics with both of them. It is very likely that GDP (GDP stands for Granddaddy Purple) gets its sultry aroma from Purple Urkle and it Big Bud, which is probably lending its large structure to the legendary newer strain.
It is wrapped in deep purple and orange hues around nuggets that are very much oversized with dense buds in it. Born in 2003, this newer purp has grown in the taste of the masses especially for the cannabis aficionados in California. It is so popular now that it has essentially become a household name when it comes to all the strains of “purple variety.” While it may be 80 percent indica, it is also 20 percent sativa, which leads us to believe that it also has sativa genes mixed in.
