Doob Dasher, Grand Daddy Purple is a 100% indica strain that contains up to 23% THC content and very low levels of CBD. It was developed in San Francisco and is the product of crossing two well-known indica strains – Big Bud and Purple Urkle. As a pure indica with high THC levels, Grand Daddy Purple has become popular as a guaranteed way to find tranquility.
Often referred to as Grand Daddy Purps or, simply, GDP, this strain is reported as being easily the most requested strain from medical cannabis dispensaries. It is also used recreationally and is readily available from outlets and online dispensaries.
The Purple moniker derives from the plants aroma which has clear fruity, berry-like tones and has been compared to marshmallows. The taste is sweet and reminiscent of grapes.
As a 100% indica strain with a very high THC content, Grand Daddy Purple is an ideal means to find a deeply sedative high. GDP acts quickly to calm the body and mind, as such it is certainly a strain to enjoy in the evening and is particularly well-suited to use as an aid to a good night’s sleep.
GDP can also be used for a range of conditions that are eased by relaxation. Stress and anxiety are effectively reduced by GDP and it is also used to manage chronic pain. This strain is also an obvious choice for anyone suffering from insomnia.
It should be emphasised that GDP was really developed with many of these conditions in mind and is a reliable relaxant that is very effective at treating many conditions. The ‘body-melt’ frequently experienced with high THC indica strains is likely rather than possible and GDP is best used later in the day.
