Cannabis Corner: Granddaddy Purple
Ken Estes created Granddaddy Purple, or GDP, in 2003 by crossing Purple Urkle and Big Bud, which are both popular for their medicinal effects. It is an indica strain, so it is a relaxing, calming cannabis plant.
Granddaddy Purple is a heavy-hitter. Its effects are powerful, and those who are new to plant medicine may consider starting very slowly. With over 4,300 reviews, Granddaddy stands at a 4.4 out of 5 stars. Its popularity is growing as many patients share their stories about how much it helps to combat pain, stress, insomnia, appetite loss and muscle spasms. It relaxes the whole body and has a happy, unstressed mind.
It has a deep berry scent and taste, but is known to cause dry mouth.
Granddaddy Purple can be found at Earth’s Healing Dispensary, conveniently located at 2075 E. Benson Hwy. and 78 W. River Rd. Connect at EarthsHealing.org. See ad, page 39.
