Grandaddy Purple, also known as Grandaddy Purp, was created in 2003 by combining the strains Purple Urkle and Big Bud. The nugs of this strain have purple in them, giving this strain part of its name. The main reason why this strain is so popular (actually one of the most popular strains out there) is because it is very potent. Also, this strain is an Indica strain, so expect heavy Indica effects when smoking it.


Effects given off by Grandaddy Purp can vary but mostly include Indica effects. This can include feelings of relaxation, euphoria, happiness, and even sleepiness. Another effect that is commonly given off from this strain is the feeling of being hungry. So yes, you can get the munchies from this strain.

It is good to know that Grandaddy Purp is a very potent strain. Allow the effects to kick in before smoking a bunch of it. Especially if you are taking an edible that contains Grandaddy Purp. Taking in too much of this strain could result in a too-intense high.

Flavors And Scents

Flavors of Grandaddy Purple include grape and berry flavors. It has even been known to taste sweet. The scents of this strain, well, are not very different from the flavors. Grandaddy Purple smells and tastes like grapes and/or berries!

Medical Properties

Since this strain is very potent, it is used by many medical marijuana patients to treat medical issues quickly. These issues include a variety of things, including (but not limited to) pain, stress, muscle spasms, insomnia, and lack of appetite. I know that this strain is a great pain reliever, and will put you to sleep if you need it to.

Some people turn to a specific strain for a specific medical issue. The good thing about Grandaddy Purple is that it can treat a few different issues all at once (and get you high while you’re at it).
