About Granddaddy Purple strain:
The Granddaddy Purple strain is a potent indica-dominant hybrid strain with a sweet and sour aroma. This strain was created by crossing the genetics of the Big Bud and Purple Urkle strains. It can be quite sedating and may even cause couch lock for some people. The taste is like tangy grapefruit with a hint of pine. Effects from this strain can last from one to two hours, depending on how much you smoke or ingest it. Another thing to know about this strain is that it tastes different when vaped than when smoked in a joint or bong because of the high terpene content in cannabis flowers, which can affect your perception.
Some common side effects are dry mouth and dry eyes, but these are more prevalent in higher doses due to their THC content exceeding 20%. You should avoid this one if you’re looking for something to do in the evening before bed. The best time to take this strain is after a long day when you want to wind down with relaxing activities like watching TV or reading a book.
The smell of the grape is so potent that you can smell it from a few feet away. When you get close to it, the fruity aroma fills your nostrils and makes you want to keep smelling it repeatedly. The flavor is a mix of grape and berry with sweet earthiness and tartiness that tickle your tongue. It’s like vaping grape kool-aid while eating a raspberry blueberry muffin. It leaves a solid sour taste in your mouth that lingers for quite some time.
You will be tasting this strain on your breath long after smoking it and might need to brush your teeth or drink something acidic (such as orange juice) before returning to the public. For those very sensitive to smells, I recommend not trying Granddaddy Purple Strain unless you have a designated area for smoking. Inhale too profoundly, and you’ll choke due to the intensity of the smell.
Grand Daddy Purple Strain has a high THC content that ranges between 17-23%. This strain offers a happy feeling that starts in the head and quickly works down to the body. It induces an uplifted mood and euphoric feelings. As with most strains, it can take up to two hours for the full effects of this strain to set in. Once this hit, you’re in for an excellent long period of creativity or deep thought – whichever you prefer.
Another good thing about this strain is how versatile it is. You can use it before work for focus or motivation and then later in the day to wind down from your responsibilities. The strain also induces an uplifted mood and can help users fight off stress. However, users should note that they may also experience slight paranoia or anxiety while using it. Because of its potency, Grand Daddy Purple may take some time to kick in, so users should plan accordingly.
