Granddaddy Purple Strain information

Granddaddy Purple (also sometimes referred to as GDP or Granddaddy Purple Kush) is up there with the most celebrated strains of the past 30 years. A cross of the 'most grown strain of all time', Big Bud, and the ever-popular Purple Urkle, Grandaddy Purple brings the best of both strains and smashes them into one amazing cultivar.

This Indica dominant Queen offers growers the chance to try their hand at a true legend that offers up 20 to 24% THC, a flavour palette fit for royalty, and a strain with an impressive list of awards to its name.

Since its introduction, GDP has won the High Times Cannabis Cup in 2004, the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup in 2012, and the Best U.S. Indica award at the Denver High Times Cannabis Cup in 2015. Not many strains win awards more than a decade after their introduction, but Granddaddy Purple continues to impress and prove its worth.

Are Granddaddy Purple seeds easy to grow?

Yes, Granddaddy Purple seeds are quite easy to grow, making them an excellent choice for both novice and experienced growers.

Adaptable, easy to train and able to take a fair amount of punishment (during the veg cycle only of course), Granddaddy Purple is a strain that can handle just about anything. Whether you're growing indoors or outdoors, this strain will fill your curing jars twice over when you do things right.

As an Indica dominant strain, Grandaddy Purps won't be taking out the lights or reaching for the sky. Topping out at around 150 cm max, most growers break the apical dominance through topping and SCroGing, resulting in a larger yield and more main colas.

The resilient and adaptable nature lends this strain to both indoor and outdoor grows but beware of heavy humidity. The density of the buds is what we all want, but this does come with a higher chance of bud rot forming in the last few weeks before harvest. If you are able to keep the RH under 50% during flowering, you shouldn't have any issues.

Expect to pull between 400 to 500 grams per square meter indoors or 500 to 600 grams per plant outdoors. With a flowering time of around 8-10 weeks, this strain is great for those who want a sizable harvest in a relatively short amount of time.

Preferred climate

Granddaddy Purple performs best in a slightly warmer and drier climate. A temperature range of 21-26°C (70-80°F) and a humidity level of around 40-50% is ideal for this strain to thrive. In hotter climates, make sure there is enough air circulation to prevent mold growth.

But, if purple hues are what you're after, drop those lights off temps down into the 15-18°C (60-65°F).
