How Granddaddy Purple Purple affects you
Granddaddy Purple is widely touted on medical marijuana websites as a relaxing, sedative strain, making it a good fit for pain and stress management, along with sleep issues, depression and anxiety. Cannabis Pharmacy points out that purple strains in general have a tendency to make users forgetful, which can help in the treatment of PTSD.
In addition, the book recommends this strain for treating any serious illness “in which “just waiting it out” is part of the process.” In other words — it’s known for its properties of easing physical and mental discomfort.
Positive and adverse effects of Granddaddy Purple
Depending on what you’re looking for, the “couch-lock,” full body high attributed to this strain can be either a positive or negative effect. For pain, sleep and stress — it’s a godsend. For getting things done, remembering what you’re in the middle of saying, and driving or operating heavy machinery — not so much.
Cannabis Pharmacy says it best when mentioning the dissociative effects of GDP, in that consuming this strain is likely “to leave you precisely where [it] found you.” This is not an energizing variety, except for perhaps during the initial onset.
Cannabinoids and terpenes in Granddaddy Purple
When it comes to cannabis, chemical profiles are tricky. Though most cannabis enthusiasts believe that the effects of a strain can be predicted by its morphology — ie whether it’s sativa or indica, or the color of its flowers — from a scientific perspective this is not the case.
Added to that, growers can basically give their plants whatever name they want, making it very difficult to assess the chemical content of a particular strain. Looking at GDP specifically, we found lab results that showed THC ranging from 12% to 27% — a decidedly wide range.
