Granddaddy Purple seeds were first introduced in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2003. They were created by the famous Ken Estes by combining Purple Urkle and Big Bud. Even though this strain is just 16 years old, it has already become one of the most popular marijuana strains not just in California, but on a global scale.
Predominantly an Indica strain, Granddaddy Purple still has some sativa genes in it. Still, it’s mostly recognized for its strong Indica effects and has won second place for “Best US Indica” at the 2015 High Times Cannabis Cup in Denver.

Granddaddy Purple seeds produce short plants with beautiful and large buds. Their flowering time is around 7-9 weeks, which is expected for feminized seeds. The plants can be grown both outdoor and indoor, but it’s best to do it inside as they require strict humidity levels, somewhere between 50% and 55%. As for the temperature, keep it between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit.
When the plants start to grow from the cannabis seeds, make sure you begin with the pruning process to allow proper air flow. The buds will be pretty big, so be prepared to set up support for the plant towards the end of the flowering period.
When properly grown and taken care of, the plants will produce amazing yields of up to 6 ounces per square foot. So, what are you waiting for? Buy Granddaddy Purple seeds from our shop and see these amazing results for yourself.
The best part of growing Granddaddy Purple seeds yourself is when you finally get to see the dense buds with deep purple coloring and orange pistils. All of this is topped with a heavy coat of shiny trichomes. As the appearance of the buds suggests, the flavor of this strain is sweet with strong hints of grapes and berries expanding into your mouth as soon as you inhale.
As for the effects, they are typical to an Indica strain – deep relaxation of the mind and body, sleepiness and the munchies.
Granddaddy Purple seeds were first made with medical use in mind, so the various medical benefits of this strain shouldn’t come as a surprise. With THC levels of up to 24% and Indica genetics, it’s quite efficient for pain and stress relief, insomnia and loss of appetite.
It’s a great strain for night time use and unwinding after a hard day, but make sure to go slow at first as it can pack quite a punch.
Just like any other Indica strain, Granddaddy Purple can cause sleepiness. This is not necessarily a negative effect, depending on what you use it for. That’s why it’s best to use this strain at night when you have no chores and need to relax.
Aside from that, the usual dry eyes and dry mouth will occur, but those are easily managed by drinking plenty of water.
