The product of these two, Grand Daddy Purple, is a spitting image of it’s parents’ two best qualities. The deep and dark purple hue from Purple Urkle and the overgrown, dense buds of Big Bud. The dark purple buds blend well with the bright orange hairs and frosted white trichomes. That generously cover the bud making it an extremely photogenic strain.
Its parents are both indica strains: Purple Urkle and Big Bud. This strain is exceptionally similar to Grape Ape and legend has it the two could be the same. However, it was first created in 2003 by Ken Estes in California, when he decided he wished to create a new and remarkable indica using two strains that were already renowned for their effects.
