Bud Buzz: Granddaddy Purple strain is a beautiful and potent cannabis strain that sneaks up you, in a good way. There is about 15% Sativa in this cannabis strain. It’s a perfect amount to keep a good head buzz going but this strain is mostly a body buzz type of high. With large dense buds that are a muted green mixed with all hues of purple tones and some orange, Granddaddy Purple is dripping with trichomes. Once you break up these huge buds, they are not too sticky and make for easy grinding. The aroma and taste is similar and you will first notice the earthiness with some sweet berry and very light floral as the undertones. The smoke from this cannabis strain does linger so plan your smoke session with that in mind.
This cannabis strain is somewhat of a creeper weed. If you smoke a few hits and stay seated you may not notice how high you are until you have to move, speak or really do any type of activity. It’s best to start off slow with this strain until you know how it will affect you. The first sensations with Granddaddy Purple strain are a chilled and relaxed feeling. Mostly felt as slow moving and almost rhythmic body waves. The head buzz is slightly euphoric and happy but takes a back seat to the body buzz. You will feel sleepy with this strain. For some people that feeling hits right away and for others it builds slowly over the course of an hour or two.
It’s not the longest lasting cannabis strain. You can expect your buzz to last about 3 hours or until you fall into a deep blissful sleep, whichever comes first. Can easily become a couch lock cannabis strain unless you stay active and move around. If you decide to chill on the couch, expect to feel a heaviness to your buzz, in a good way. It almost feels like the couch is pulling you from within. A bit strange in terms of sensations but overall very relaxing. Granddaddy Purple is good for mild to moderate pain, especially muscle pain. It is also great for stress, anxiety and insomnia. The negatives are dry mouth and red dry eyes. Eyedrops are a must.
Drinkables – You will probably want to pre hydrate before your smoke session with water and then move on from there. As this cannabis strain can be a couch lock one, keep those drink options within easy reach. If you lose motivation to visit the kitchen you can still manage any dry mouth. If you want to boost your energy during your buzz and hold off sleep for a while, caffeinated drinks are the best way to do it. Or, if you want something refreshing try a spiced chai with ice, delicious.
Munchables – The munchies will come on fairly quickly, even before 30 minutes and for most people, are intense. Granddaddy Purple is known for stimulating the appetite so you may want to prepare some snacks before you smoke so that you have easy to reach options. Cheese dip with chips or pieces of bread are an excellent savory choice. If you are craving something sweet, a brownie sundae with all the toppings is the way to go!
Doables – Granddaddy Purple strain is a pretty mellow cannabis strain and is best for evening use or on a lazy day when napping is part of the day’s schedule. For some people this cannabis strain is known to increase feelings of arousal and if you are one of those lucky people, it should be easy to decide how best to spend your buzz. If this cannabis strain does not get your libido going, then it may be time to relax with a good movie or some music and enjoy your buzz solo.
