I ran into some Grand Daddy Purple buds, packed up the Sherlock Pipe for evening sample tokes. Relaxing and cheerful any time of day buzz with a solid cushion - good mind focus and motivation, no couch lock. Sweet and refreshing grape with a skunky light pine spice flavor with a hint of that classic grassy weed taste.
GRAND DADDY PURPLE
The Grand Daddy Purple 70/30 indica dominant strain was created with the crossing of the Big Bud and Purple Urkle strains (Source). These Grand Daddy Purple buds have a solid 23% THC and a smooth 1% CBD, with a 6.48% total terpene content - including 3.30% Linalool, 1.17% alpha-Pinene, 0.91% Caryophyllene, 0.47% Humulene, 0.39% Caryophyllene oxide, 0.24% Myrcene, and less than 0.01% of the beta-Pinene, Limonene, and Terpinolene terpenes (Source).
Linalool Terpene (Source)
The Grand Daddy Purple strain is rich in the Linalool terpene - it has a floral and light spice scent and flavor, and is also found in lavender. Linalool has a relaxing, mildly sedative, anti-inflammatory, and stress relieving effect.
Relaxation and stress relief are typical in linalool rich strains. Also known to carry anti-anxiety, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties, linalool can also aid with insomnia due to its sedative nature. Linalool has a calming effect on the body and mind, acting as a potent muscle relaxer and possible antidepressant and antipsychotic.
Grand Daddy Purple Looks and Scent
There are no noticeable purples with these Grand Daddy Purple buds - the last batch of these buds were dark purple. Green is the dominant gene, so you'll see that often with 'purple' buds, sometimes they're half green and half purple - much like purple basil. These buds have vibrant greens, a resinous amber coating of trichomes, and ample mats of dainty pale orange pistils - with a sweet and airy grassy grape and berry scent.
